    Lauren was kind and easy to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable and have me tons of resources to either fix or donate my items, and to create new ways of storage. She has a simple method that I can now use on my own, but I'm still hoping to have her back in the next month! She made me feel empowered about my home and my space when I has been feeling powerless and overwhelmed for a long time. Thanks lauren! I'm so grateful

      I'm always very glad when my clients want to set off on their own. Helping my clients regain their confidence is one of the best parts of my job. My only regret if Tiffany doesn't call me back - she lives in a town with some of my favorite ice cream shops...

    About this pro

    Golden Circle Member of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals: Certified Professional Organizer(R) Institute for Challenging Disorganization member since 7/2017 Earned Institute for Challenging Disorganization Level I Certificates of Study in: Earned Institute for Challenging Disorganization Level I Certificates of Study in: (1) Basic Hoarding Issues with the CD Client January 2018; (2) Basic Mental Health Conditions and Challenges Affecting the CD Client January 2018; (3) Interpersonal Intelligence December 2017; (4) CD Client Administration November 2017; (5) Basic ADD Issues with the CD September 2017 and (6) Chronic Disorganization August 2017 Best of Thumbtack 2015, 2016, 2017 SpareFoot Moving Guides "10 Best Seattle Professional Organizers" I want this process to be fun. I will use humor at every opportunity to make this work easier. I am also able to work in what some people see as very informal environments - with the kids side-by-side with us, the cat trying to get into the boxes, the plumber at your house at the same time. That can make the effort easier for you, and that is a key to success. This job has to be 100% client-centered. If you have to call it quits early because your 2-year-old just had a temper tantrum, we will. And we'll start again when you can. I get huge satisfaction when I am able to help people on a deeply personal, highly collaborative level. I constantly need to be creative and think on my feet to develop solutions with my customers. There are very few people who are "traditional" file-cabinet-and-folder thinkers. It's fun to help people explore out-of-the-box ideas and methods for resolving their problems. And it's a wonderful reward to help people regain comfort and peace in their homes, or get new space for a new aspect of their lives, like turning a garage into an art studio.

      Q & A

      • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
        I help you declutter and arrange your belongings. In the process, we might discover anything from a string of pearls to old college textbooks. I help you find your timeless treasures, and give you ideas on how to honor your property by keeping it carefully and conveniently. I support you as you let go of items you may no longer need, and together we create storage systems so the possessions you value no longer get lost or damaged. Those systems can be for paper, mementos, clothes, pots and pans or any other materials in your household, in any space in your home from your garage to your attic.
      • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
        I obtained the designation of Board Certified Professional Organizer(R) on July 1, 2017. I've now joined a second professional society, The Institute for Challenging Disorganization, to start earning its credentials. Earned Level 1 Certificate of Study in Interpersonal Intelligence 12/29/2017 - Happy Holidays to me! Earned Level 1 Certificate of Study in CD Client Administration 11/2017. Earned Level 1 Certificate of Study in Basic ADD Issues for CD Clients 9/1/2017.Earned Level 1 Certificate of Study in Chronic Disorganization 8/1/2017.
      • How did you get started doing this type of work?
        I was looking at a number of professions, or at simply reentering the workforce in one of my old specialties, after deciding to return to work when my son started full-time school. I started investigating the profession of Professional Organizer and attended a meeting of the Seattle chapter of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO). The theme was "What's your favorite organizing tool?" When I realized how happy I was, sitting in a room of people who were discussing the merits of various file folder systems, I knew I was making a good choice!
