I will send you an electronic receipt (you don’t need more paper in your life!), along with a summary of any “homework” in an email following our session. Please refer to our Policies and Procedures for information about how we handle your personal information.

Service Area

  • I will come to your home, office, or school in Herndon, Reston, Chantilly, Centreville, Fairfax, McLean, Sterling, or Ashburn.
  • Other areas may┬áincur a travel fee based on travel time.

How I Work

  • My ultimate goal is to get you to the point that you don’t need me anymore, because you will have the tools and knowledge you need to do it on your own.
  • This is a joint effort. You need to participate to make it work, and to get yourself in the habit of keeping your home clean.
  • I strive to use resources already available in your home. I don’t believe in making unnecessary purchases of “additional storage” – that just adds to your clutter!
  • Anything that doesn’t belong where it currently is goes in one of three piles as we work through – Elsewhere, Trash/Recycle, and Donate/Sell. This saves time as we focus on one problem area at a time.
  • I give homework! In many cases, it makes no sense for me to stand over you as you put things away from your elsewhere bag or you donate/sell things.
