Organizing

Home Organizing

Have a space or room in your home that needs organizing? Is your work space so disorganized that you can’t think straight, let alone complete that report? My services are available for scheduling at your convenience.

Downsizing

Are you joining the growing trend and moving into a tiny house? Do you have an empty nest and want to move into something cozier? Are you or a family member moving into an assisted living facility? If you answered yes to any of these, I can help you sort through your memories and decide what to keep, what to sell/donate, and what to toss. As a professional organizer and life  coach, I can help you with the emotions that go along with a significant change like moving, and then help you pack and unpack in your new setting.

Holiday Decorations

So many of us like to decorate for the end-of-the-year holidays, but it too often becomes a huge sense of frustration.  I often hear, “If only I had put the decorations away in a more organized way I’d enjoy putting them up the next year.” If you want help with putting up decorations, taking them down and putting them away, or both, contact me to schedule an appointment.

New Year’s Resolution

Do you make the same resolution each year? You know, that one where you resolve to get your home organized, but never quite reach that goal? I’m here to help. I actually enjoy working with my clients to improve their homes and, through that, their lives

Home Staging

Many of you know that home staging is the act of preparing a private residence for sale in the real estate marketplace. The goal of staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling a property more swiftly and for more money. But did you know that home staging can also be used to update your home or office? I use this skill to help my clients see their spaces in a new light. Sometimes it’s just a matter of moving furniture to new positions or choosing the right paint color and accessories to bring new life to the room.

Etiquette

Office Etiquette

Times they are a changing. Email is the norm and so, often, are jeans. With many workplaces moving towards a more casual atmosphere, do you know how to navigate some of the tricky office politics? What about sending an email vs making a phone call? If your workplace is more formal, that can be tricky too. I can help you navigate the pitfalls and teach you how to find the right options to help you succeed.

Table Manners

If you have children, you probably want them to have good table manners. So how do you teach them while trying to enjoy your own meal? Contact me! I’ll come to your home, when it’s convenient for your schedule, and work with your child/children. In a matter of a few short sessions, I will teach your them which fork to use, which way to pass the bread, and how to use a napkin. I will also teach them appropriate topics for the dinner table and the importance
of silence and waiting their turn.

Coaching

Coaching

We have all needed someone to talk to about professional and personal issues in our lives. Trusted friends and family members can be helpful but they can also have their own personal/professional views to consider. Life coaches offer the guidance you need to consider and make changes in your life.
