Simplicity and Serenity Begins Here
I have been interested in organizational systems and interior design my entire life. I began my career as a licensed clinical psychotherapist and later found my true calling as an organizing consultant and home stager.
I learned the importance of a tidied home as a child from my mother and grandmother. An organized and ordered home was a cornerstone of our family life. Being organized allowed us to focus on the important things and to grow into compassionate and empathic adults.
I hadn’t thought of myself as a pack rat, or someone who had too many things, but I was shocked when I took the time to evaluate all my possessions on the basis of whether or not they sparked joy. All the clothes, papers, books and bric a brac that I no longer needed were packed into bags and donated to a better home.
The KonMari method of tidying transformed the way I related to my home and to my belongings.
I found an exceptional peace in my home once all the clutter was out of sight and no longer in the way. With all my found space, I was able to find a perfect place and a permanent home for all the things I loved the most.
I wanted to turn my love of organizing into my business and help others find the same magical serenity that comes from a tidy home and office. After rigorous training by the KonMari Institute, I became one of the first Certified KonMari Consultants in the U.S.
As a licensed clinical psychotherapist, I have worked with individuals and families who are struggling with interpersonal and environmental issues. Many times, clients are overwhelmed with the process of bringing order and serenity into their lives. My work as a consultant involves overcoming obstacles to achieving your vision of your best life possible.
