Imagine walking into a townhouse in which every room could be labeled as miscellaneous. With piles of kid's socks, mail, staplers, and granola bars staring her in the face, Lea's response was, "Cool. We can do this and it's going to be great." And we did.
Lea was positive, professional, and patient all the way through. She used a systematic approach to help me define my goals and priorities. She asked the right questions, listened, took notes, and remembered.
After every visit, my life got easier because my surroundings were more manageable. We experimented and we adjusted. Ever flexible and responsive, Lea did not get attached to a certain way of organizing items. She observed how strategies worked over a week's time and modified approaches to better fit my routines and realities.
Lea is intuitive and warm. One challenge I had was getting my daughter more comfortable with being in her room alone at night, or at all, really. Lea took the perspective of my anxious child and recommended approaches that involved color, texture, lighting, and sound. It worked!
Finally, Lea is nonjudgmental and downright playful. Even if she weren't providing an invaluable service in her own special way, she's a joy to have in the house. Optimistic, talented, fun. You can't go wrong.
