This is probably the MOST frequently asked question from potential clients. The short answer is NO. I will, however, want you to work with me on sorting through your things so that I can help YOU decide what you need and want to keep, what you’re willing to let go of, and – importantly – why. This is a process. My objective is for you to gain understanding into the reasons underlying your decisions.
In almost every case, I start with a free initial assessment. I will meet you at your home or office and spend 45 minutes to an hour discussing your needs, touring the areas you wish to work on, and coming up with an action plan. Meanwhile, this is an ideal time for both of us to decide if we are a good fit.
That depends upon a number of factors: whether your target area is more focused (i.e. “I want to reorganize my kitchen” or “I want to create a home office”) or more generalized (i.e. I’m being swallowed up by paperwork and don’t know how to deal with it all.”) In the first case, I will suggest we schedule a finite number of three–to–four hour sessions and a timeline to get the task accomplished. More generalized situations often require an initial phase to “get you out from under,” followed by a period during which we work together to design a system tailored to the way you think and work in order to prevent a reoccurrence. This can be followed by occasional “check ups” if desired.
