Professional Organizer in the San Francisco Bay Area

You’re frustrated

Stuff has migrated into your home. Your house is so cluttered you don’t know where to start. It’s overwhelming. It feels like you try and try to organize, but all you’re doing is moving stuff around and watching it revert back to a mess. 

I can help you get organized and downsize so you don’t become overwhelmed. We work together. I guide you through the process. You’re not alone.

You want serenity 

You have anxiety trying to find a home for everything. You feel guilty getting rid of the things people give you. Maybe you’re weighed down — why can’t I declutter my own house? Maybe you’re a little embarrassed — why did I let the clutter get this far?

I help you create a space that is right for you. You’re unique. You have a different definition than your neighbor of what makes a peaceful home. 

I cater to your personality. I ask questions to better understand you and how to help you downsize or declutter your home. 

You want relatability 

You see all those pins with the minimal and “picture perfect” looking homes. There’s nothing wrong with that — but that’s not you. You don’t want a pristine storage space. You want a relatable home. You want a tangible home.

I help you set out what you want to accomplish in your home. I concentrate on helping you to divest of unnecessary clutter

  • You’re an empty nester now, but you can’t get rid of your children’s legos, because they’re sentimental.
  • You went to your neighborhood’s yard sale, you can never have too much fabric for quilt making.
  • You’ve inherited your grandmother’s soup pot, the magic ingredient in all her family dinners.

That’s where I can help:
