  • having stacks of papers that grow and grow
  • creating a work space
  • being successful in school: turning in assignments on
    time, using a planner and keeping track of assignments
Solution:
  • I can help! Together we can create a roadmap for success, so you can reduce stress and frustration and feel more confident.

  • Through the Institute for Challenging Disorganization (ICD), I am a  specialist in Chronic Disorganization and have a Certificate of Study in ADHD.

 


 

Mission
Confidentiality, attentiveness, and understanding are important to me in my work with clients.
Specializations
Students – School transitions can be hard: elementary to middle school, middle school to high school, high school to professional school or college, and college to graduate school. Being organized helps students get better grades and maintain confidence and achieve career goals. I can help!

 

People with AD/HD – If you are feeling shame, guilt, and/or embarrassment – no worries – I’ve seen and heard it all. I don’t believe in a one-size fits all approach. I love talking with clients and together coming up with solutions and maintenance systems that people can envision themselves using.  I can help!

 

No purchase solutions –  People tend to think that they need to buy a variety of organizing supplies. Buying supplies before knowing what is needed can make life more complicated and can lead to unnecessary expense. Most of the time, materials that clients already have are usable in an organizing project. If you want less complication and expense, I can help!

Adults with ADHD: Life Beyond Diagnosis

I participated in this event at the Ann Arbor District Library

If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with ADHD or are living with its challenges, chances are you’ve felt confused, overwhelmed, and stuck at some point along the way. We are here to help! To recognize ADHD Awareness Month, this presentation led by Dr. Michelle Frank and Sari Solden, M.S, of Sari Solden & Associates features a team of nationally-recognized local experts who work together to provide various pieces of the supportive puzzle that help adults with ADHD move toward fulfilling and meaningful lives.

This talk gives an understanding of ADHD in adults and provide guidance for those diagnosed with ADHD or those experiencing the challenges, even if not formally diagnosed. A main focus is to help adults with ADHD, and those who support them, navigate the challenges in a way that leads to an informed, empowered view of oneself as a unique adult who focuses on his or her strengths. This talk is for anyone affected by adult ADHD, including college students, parents of college students, men and women with ADHD, family members, friends, educators, mental health and health professionals, employers and colleagues, and disability specialists.

The presenters then highlight of several local nationally-known experts who all provide different critical treatment supports, including an educational psychologist, professional organizer, ADHD coach, and an ADHD support group.


September Newsletter: Where Are You on the Organizing Spectrum?

Background

Let’s not get lulled into a fantasy where most homes look like a Pinterest pin or a glossy photo straight from Martha Stewart LivingThose pictures, rather than representing reality, represent extreme versions of organization.  And extreme thinking is unhelpful at best in the nitty-gritty, day-to-day world of organizing.

The Spectrum 

More helpful is to picture organization along a spectrum.   On one end, we have Martha Stewart, and on the other end we have a house that is uninhabitable.  If you’re a visual person, draw it out, and give it a scale.
