Fears and Concerns Addressed Regarding Hiring a Professional Organizer


Concern:  I am too embarrassed to let you see my home.

Response: No judgments will be made concerning you or the condition of your home.  I fully understand the demands on families these days and there are many other priorities that take precedent.   I also find that many of my clients are extremely gifted in ways that I will never be gifted.  Let me use my gift of organizing to help you.

Concern:  I don’t want others to know that I needed a Professional Organizer.

Response: Your name and address will remain strictly confidential.  Others will only know that I am working for you if you or one of your family members tells them. We also adhere to the NAPO code of ethics.

Concern:  I don’t have the time.

Response: I am flexible to work within your schedule.  We don’t have to work an eight-hour day.  We can set aside a four to six hour window when the kids are in school, you have a day off, or anytime your schedule permits.  Remember our ultimate goal is to simplify your life and free up more of your time.

Concern: I don’t have the strength or endurance to tackle this problem.

Response: I will lead the way to achieve your goals and do the manual labor while you are needed to make all final decisions.  Many  times I have a client “SIT” in the room that we are working.  I will hand you items for you to determine whether you want to keep, donate, or discard. When needed, I will make recommendations for decision making. In the meantime I will do the sorting, packing items to be donated or discarded, handing you new items to go through, organizing the kept items and placing them in their designated spot.

Concern: I don’t know you, how can I trust you?

Response: Integrity is very important to me. Please read my referral page. Once we begin working together, you will find that I am a very honest and trustworthy person.  I am also bonded and insured.

Concern:  I am on a tight budget.

Response: We can discuss your budget concerns and put together a plan that fits within your limitations. 

Concern:  I have a hard time letting go of things.

Response: I will make recommendations that will help guide you in determining what to keep, donate, or discard; however, the ultimate decision will be left to you.

Concern:  Change is difficult for me.

Response: Change is difficult for most people; however, my hope is that as you experience your new environment, you will regret you didn’t change sooner.
