-What areas do you serve:

After 9 years of serving Seattle area clients, Jean now works in-person in Carlsbad, New Mexico and remotely all over the world.

Sara is available in the Seattle metropolitan area in-person. She provides in-home organizing sessions in these areas of Washington State: Auburn, Bainbridge Island, Bellevue, Bothell, Burien, Des Moines, Edmonds, Federal Way, Issaquah, Kenmore, Kent, Kirkland, Lynnwood, Mercer Island, Mountlake Terrace, Normandy Park, North Bend, Redmond, Renton, Seattle, Tacoma, Tukwila, Vashon, and Woodinville. She may be convinced to work outside of these areas as well. (Travel fees may apply). She is also available for remote sessions all over the world.

-Do you have experience with ADHD?

Yes! Jean and Sara both work with people with ADHD and other learning differences.

-What do you help people organize?

Jean and Sara both help people “go through their stuff” in all areas of the home (and storage units as well). We help people sort, purge, and then find homes for items in the kitchen, garage, bedrooms, closets, basements, bathrooms, rec. rooms, sheds, laundry rooms, offices, the list goes on!

-What is the first step towards working together?

To set up a consultation, please fill out this form (short answers are fine) and we will respond back with a few dates/times for a consultation. Either a 15 minute or 1 hour virtual consultation is required before scheduling any in-home sessions.

-What is your process like?

Virtual sessions are conducted on Zoom or Facetime. We will talk about your goals and do a tour of the spaces you want help with. For ongoing sessions, we will use the time to either do a virtual organizing project or use the time to strategize. Virtual sessions are 1 hour.

For in-home sessions, we will assess the spaces together and determine the best place to start. All work is done collaboratively with our clients. In-home sessions are for a minimum of 3 hours.

-Do I need to buy bins before we work together?

Unless you know you need a particular bin, we prefer to just use what you have on hand such as cardboard boxes, bags, or other bins you’ve already purchased. Once we’ve sorted, purged, and decided where things should belong, then it’s [usually!] the time to get bins.

-How long will it take, and how much will it cost?

This varies widely depending on the size of your project. Since this is collaborative work, and you will be the one making the final decisions on what to keep and let go of, the duration of the project will be highly dependent on how quickly you can make decisions. You can view my pricing information here.

-What is your cancellation policy?

Schedule changes or cancellations within 48 hours of the appointment will be charged for the session. If you are sick, please contact us to make alternative arrangements.
