Organizing benefits

It’s no surprise that many homes and offices are often as cluttered as our lives. The space we live in reflect an inner chaos where rushing and acquiring are dominant forces. To regain balance we need to begin by creating space—physical and psychological.

A clear, efficient space means less anxiety, more productivity, and time to focus on your priorities. Whether it’s your closet or filing cabinet, kitchen or garage, designing a space that is both functional and aesthetic is transformative, even revolutionary.

Organizing and reducing clutter create the means to move forward in your life and appreciate all that you have. A Clear Space is here to help you take that first step.

My newly organized kitchen and pantry make cooking a joy. My old jungle basement is now a systematic and accessible storage space. My former messy filing cabinets are not just functional, but works of art.

Home organizing

Clear the clutter from every room in your home to create functional, aesthetic spaces to live and work. Increase storage capacity. Organize a dedicated workspace to handle paperwork and finances. Customize your space with interior design plans for kitchen, office, bedroom, project room, kid's room, multi-purpose spaces, mudroom, garage, or basement. Evaluate, repurpose, and plan shelving, closets, pantries, and more.

DESIGN

My kitchen used to be a clutter magnet. Clearing my cabinets, table, and countertops, and adding specialized shelves made all the difference.

WHAT IS COACHING?

For most of us coaching is synonymous with sports. From Little League up to pro sports, we imbue athletic coaches with power, respect, and a certain mystique. A great athletic coach is a person with the talent, experience, and the heart to bring out the very best in an individual or team.

But athletes are not the only people who use coaches. Professionals of every persuasion, from those in the arts to the business community employ coaches to help them focus and excel. Throughout the country public school districts have adopted coaching programs to help teachers identify strategies to improve classroom performance. Even surgeons hire coaches to help them refine their skills. 

Think of a coach as you would a personal trainer—a person committed to capturing your potential and motivating you to bring out your personal best. A coach is your advocate  who challenges you to define and achieve your goals, holds you accountable, and tracks your performance. 

Deb’s collaborative coaching process and infectious energy make working with her a gift. She helped me take stock my personal and professional life in ways I never would have imagined. Martha Stewart move over!

WHAT COACHING CAN DO FOR YOU?

  • Maximize your potential.

  • Define and achieve goals.

  • Move through challenging life transitions.

  • Manage your time effectively.

  • Negotiate priorities.

  • Increase health and well-being.

  • Restore your work-life balance.

A PERSONAL INVESTMENT

Coaching is the natural outgrowth of my work as an organizer. When people get organized they are able to imagine more possibilities for their lives and the desire to manifest them. Whether your goal seems straight forward, like losing weight and getting into shape, or more complex, like changing careers and overcoming obstacles to professional success, coaching yields an enormous return on your investment. Coaching begins with a consultation and continues with a series of monthly sessions.
