How does the process work?
I offer a complimentary consultation to discuss your frustrations and goals. We then jointly come up with an action plan based on your priorities, timeline and budget. If you decide to proceed, we set a start date and note any supplies that might be needed in advance. There is always the chance to make adjustments to the action plan as we proceed. You control the outcome. My role is to guide, advise and help, as necessary. Your feedback is always appreciated. My goal is to bring order out of chaos so you can retake control of your stuff, rather than your stuff controlling you.
How do I schedule an appointment?
Please call 617.939.4641 to schedule the first appointment. Subsequent appointments can be booked in person or requested by phone, text or email. All appointments are subject to confirmation.
What is your cancellation policy?
Any session postponed or cancelled with less than 24 hours' notice is subject to a charge equal to 50% of the session fee the first time and 100% of the session fee subsequently. Please call and leave a voicemail providing as much notice as possible.
What does it cost?
Professional organizing services are charged at a rate of $75/hour with a minimum fee of $225. Closet design may involve a series of shorter sessions to measure, design, review and edit plans, and possibly to install. By its nature, some of the work will be performed offsite. For larger projects, I recommend developing an action plan. The fee depends on the number of spaces involved and the complexity of the project.
Payment for services is due in full on the day of service or, if multiple sessions are booked, at the end of each week’s work. I will email an invoice from QuickBooks which you can pay directly from your bank account or by mailing a check. I do not accept payment via Venmo or credit card.
1% of all sales will be donated annually to support Mission of Deeds. This non-profit gives beds, furniture, and household items, free of charge, to people in need. All recipients are treated with respect. https://www.missionofdeeds.org
How do you dispose of items?
I strive to be as eco-friendly as possible with the goal of reducing what ends up in the landfill. I will haul off up to one carload of donations at the end of each session as part of the service and will provide you with a donation receipt for tax purposes. Once removed, donations cannot be returned. Additional donation trips are charged at a reduced rate. I can donate your prescription glasses and recycle your printer ink cartridges. I also offer safe disposal of medications that are expired or no longer needed. I generally do not remove recycling or trash and never remove hazardous waste.

Do you share information?
All work is strictly confidential unless otherwise authorized by the client, or as required by law. I adhere to the NAPO Code of Ethics, details of which can be found on napo.net.
Do you reward referrals or give them?
Yes, refer someone you know, and they will receive a $25 credit towards their first organizing session (min 3 hrs). Once their session is completed, you'll get a $25 credit as well! I also love to give referrals. If you need a referral to a local business or service, please let me know. Chances are I know just the right person or business to help!
Do you provide references?
Yes, please contact me.
