You may not believe it, but I've come to know  that it’s a sign of strength to ask for help.  For the longest time I believed what I was told: that I should be able pick myself up by the bootstraps and power through it – whatever the “it” is – sound familiar?  I've compiled this short list of the many ways you – my clients – support me, and offer these in turn to support you.  I want you to fall in love with yourself, and the tasks you set for yourself. You are making a new relationship to things, and this is my commitment statement to you:

  • You have many talents, some not yet realized. I am here to help you clear space for realizing more of your talents.
  • You feel safe with me and know I won’t judge you. Nothing is a surprise to me.
  • You have been through your share of difficulties and have survived.  Now it is time to fully thrive.
  • You have a sense of humor about your predicament.  I will laugh alongside with you.
  • You are seriously ready for change in your life, and willing to put the effort in that is required. I support you in your effort and will help you take action.
  • You have an appreciation of beauty, starting with your own inner and outer strengths. You can access these more fully when you clear out the clutter.
  • The things you love, you cherish. I will never ask you to give up what you love.
  • You know what it means to take care of yourself.  I can help you do that in this area of your life.
  • You love a good pair of shoes.  Me too.
  • You feel a sense of urgency about your organizing project.  I value your time.
  • You are eager to start and complete this process called organizing, because it will allow you to focus on your dreams.
  • You believe in your dreams.  I want you to realize your dreams.
  • You are excited by imaging how much better your life will feel when things are in order.  It brings me joy.
  • You realize organizing is a process.  No need to rush.
