Frequently Asked Questions:
How do you plan to get me organized?
This is a process and we will work together as a team. I am your coach. The first and most important step in the process is the consultation at your home or office. This will give us a chance to meet and find out what is going on. We will set goals and establish priorities to get you to your goals.
Will this be like the TV shows?
Yes and No. Many of the same steps will be used however, we will not have a moving crew, carpenter or handyman on site. It will be you and I together. Also, there are cost considerations. If you decide to add items, furniture, built-ins, etc. all of this can be achieved with outside help. I will assist you in finding other support staff such as handyman, electrician, carpenter if your project needs this assistance.
How long will it take?
Every situation is different. The variables include the range of your project, how often we can meet, the length of our sessions, how much you are able to do on your own, and how quickly you make decisions. No two projects are alike, just as no two people are the same. We will work at your pace on on your time line to get your space to the place you desire. If you have a deadline, such as a moving date, we will work on a plan to reach that deadline.
Is this work confidential?
Absolutely. You have invited me in to your private space. I uphold the Code of Ethics and Confidentiality Policy of the National Organization of Professional Organizers (NAPO). Additionally, we will both sign an agreement outlining your project and including a confidentiality clause.
Do you belong to any associations that support your role as an organizer?
I am a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO). I have also been active in the local Bay Area Chapters (NAPO-SF and NAPO-SF East Bay). Through these groups I have developed relationships with a number of colleagues and I continue to participate in seminars and training sessions.
