It is said that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience. And wow, do we love our physical stuff! As a born artifact buff and archivist, I know firsthand what it is to have affection for material possessions and the stories we attach to them. I also understand that accumulations which become unmanageable can cause consternation for ourselves and our loved ones.
Our stashes can become roadblocks if we feel we should be able to get things in order by ourselves, yet have not been able to make lasting improvements. Maybe we feel we should get to a “certain point” before we can reach out for help, but if we could, we probably already would have. When it comes to our own stuff, it can be difficult to hold an objective perspective over a sustained period of a project.
Creating order is one of the most transformational and achievable acts we can take on: a physical catalyst to inner peace with benefits that permeate other areas of our lives in an unfolding that will continue to surprise and delight us. When you are ready for support, I am here with utmost discretion and no judgement to help you find a path to a revised relationship with your stuff. I help Clients enliven beloved possessions by displaying, archiving and repairing so they contribute to your life, and discern which possessions need to move on.

Moving house is a significant life event and time of disassembly that is sometimes accompanied by other major life events. I hold great respect for a Client's relationship with their home and possessions, and am sensitive to the ways that moving can be a vulnerable time of change: leaving the familiar behind while imagining a next adventure. There are numerous tasks to complete to prepare a house for sale while maintaining already busy lives. So while you are looking forward, I attend to that which will be left behind. Using your own furnishings, and even on limited budgets, I can re-style your spaces to create a fresh and appealing sense of its greatest potential and manage repairs with contractors. I am committed to adding value to your selling process so your move goes as enjoyably as possible.
