You never learned the skills needed to live in a world so full of stuff.
Most people have clutter because their parents never taught them how to deal with clutter. Decluttering and organizing were skills that were never needed before now. Period. Fifty years ago we simply didn't have enough stuff to have to worry about decluttering and keeping things organized. We had to cook, and we had to clean, but we did not have to declutter and organize.
Things sure have changed.
I have spent two decades learning everything about habits, relationships, clutter, organization, and creating spaces that nourish your soul and support your life today. After studying, observing, testing, tweaking and listening to feedback, I now offer you many different ways to learn these skills. Prioritize Your Sanity is today's Home Ec. This is the instruction you never had. These are the skills that were never modeled for you.
I've learned that clutter manifests itself in all different ways in our lives: physical clutter, emotional clutter, financial clutter, social clutter - it's all clutter, and it's all connected. When we begin to tackle one type of clutter we inevitable tackle all our clutter. And this is where the magic happens. This is when the universe opens up and our lives undergo meaningful transitions.
Let me coach you through the process. Use this website and find the best tool to help you begin to tackle your clutter, once and for all.
I have always been impacted by my physical surroundings. Growing up I spent a lot of time reorganizing my room, moving my furniture around, redecorating, and trying to help contain the stuff in our lives. For me, there is no better feeling than being in a freshly reenergized space. Having a home that feels perfect for you adds a tremendous amount of value to our lives.
In the past two decades, my personal and professional lives have taken many different forms, but my childhood interests in decluttering, organizing, physical spaces, and systems have remained the common threads. I considered Professional Organizing as a career at every twist and turn along the way, but always chose a parallel route - a Master's in Archival Science, a pop-up children's consignment sale business, fund-raising, communications and event planning, food blogging, homesteading, and raising a family are just some of the fun adventures I've had. Eventually, my "hobby" of helping everyone I know declutter, organize, arrange and decorate their space was clearly more than a hobby and it was the exact right time to jump fully into the Professional Organizing world. When I did, I brought a slew of complementary skills and lessons from my previous ventures, jobs, successes, and failures.
I currently work with clients in person and virtually, in workshops, in online group settings, over the phone, and in their homes and offices. I refer to my style of Professional Organizing "Prioritize Your Sanity" because that is always the goal of this work we do together. When your space supports your life, you are free to focus on what really matters.
Prioritize Your Sanity brings together everything that I've learned over the years plus it enables me to work directly with people and see such dramatic transformations in their lives. Every day I feel inspired by my clients. My organizing style is influenced by personal history as well as many great voices of our time, from the Minimalists to Karen Kingston, and many more.
I am also a lifelong student of habit change and self-development. To this end, the work of Gretchen Rubin, Jen Sincero, Hal Elrod, and many more provide me with language and skills to share with my clients. And, true to my nature, I continue to pursue opportunities to expand my understanding of people and the spaces they inhabit. I am currently working on certifications in both Reiki and Feng Shui, organizing backpacking adventures, and finding a new passion and voice in helping people to reduce waste in their lives.
Decluttering and organizing is not simply throwing out your possessions, or sorting them into clear bins with beautiful labels. It's figuring out how you can create an environment that supports you and your family every day. It's about honoring your past, dreaming of your future, and creating space to live in the moment. It's a beautiful journey, and I would love the opportunity to support you along the way.
