Process

"I had to take a deep breath and put my embarrassment aside. When she showed up for our first appointment. . her warmth, her calm disposition, and her non-judgmental nature put me at ease instantly." – A.M.

The First Phone Call

There is an initial phone conversation of 20-30 minutes.

Clients talk about why they are calling now and their prior experiences with organizing. The organizer talks about her style, what happens next, and what they can expect.

The First Session

If the organizer and perspective client feel like it makes sense to move to the next step, a two and a half hour first visit is scheduled.

At the end of the first visit if client and organizer feel that there is a good fit a next date is set and the ype of organizing service is determined.

A Typical Session
