I believe that professional help getting your space and business in order should not be limited to the wealthy, especially when clutter itself has so many financial costs. I reserve a set number of hours each month at low or no cost for non-profit business and individuals with limited income. Contact me for more details.
Frequently Asked Questions
Below you’ll find a selection of questions I get a lot. If you don’t find the answer you’re looking for here, schedule a free consult call!
No. While photos or videos can be helpful for me in suggesting how long our initial session should be, I do most of my assessing in the first 15 minutes of our appointment.
I consult for the greater Seattle area, generally within 30 miles of the city center. For locations that are further out or require a ferry, there may be additional travel fees or higher minimums. Any travel restrictions will be explained during your free consult call.
Yes! Remote meetings via Zoom are great for email and file organization, accountability check-ins, business systems coaching, and do-it-yourselfers looking for some guidance on how to tackle their space. I have even helped people clear out their closets and prep for move day via Zoom.
If we are going to clear out a specific person’s belongings (such as in their bedroom), it is very important they are a part of the process. I can tailor the day to accommodate everyone who wants to be involved. If most of the stuff is yours but a few items belong to a family member, I recommend that they either stay nearby (working or playing in another part of the house), or join us for the last hour or two of work. This will allow us to get their input on objects that may be important to them.
My motto is that I only work with the willing and the living. I am happy to help your other family members with their spaces, however they must want me to be there. I do not work with people who don’t want to do the work, and I don’t organize belongings for people who aren’t there.
I love working with kids – they are some of my favorite clients. Children can start managing their own belongings as young as age six, and parents are often surprised by how excited their kids are at the prospect of taking ownership of their possessions and creating a cleaner space.
Almost certainly. After our sessions I will usually leave you with a list of tasks to accomplish. You may have a stack of papers that need to be scanned, or a new online account to set up before we can continue with our work. These are often things you’ve been “meaning to do” for a long time, but there is added accountability if you are expected to do them by a certain date (often the date of our follow-up session or call).
For some people, the primary benefit of hiring me is accountability. By setting an appointment, you are committing yourself to work on the task at hand, if only for the duration of the appointment. If you know that you only have a few hours a month to give, then we will do as much as we can in those hours.
It’s pretty common that a conversation about digital clutter will turn into a discussion on scheduling rules, or a day that starts in the kitchen ends up in the basement. My work involves tracking down the root of each problem, and sometimes that means working on many different areas of a person’s life at once. You do not need to know where to start or what the plan is. All you need is some idea of where the problems are manifesting, and a willingness to discover the solutions.
For in-person work, the cost is $500 for a full day session, which typically lasts between 5-7 hours. Online appointments are $150 for 90 minutes.
Hourly rates for both in-person and virtual work is also available, as well as package discounts for clients who schedule several sessions at once.
