"El did an awesome job organizing my things. She found inexpensive containers to keep my stuff categorized. She helped me get rid of stuff that I really didn’t need and was holding on to. I would give her a 10/10 and would refer her to others. She is very efficient and professional."

"Every time I walked into the basement to do laundry, I was filled with despair...I had to navigate the towering pile of giveaways, the gym equipment and the laundry baskets.  I didn't even bother going to the back half of the basement as my husband's overflowing piles of tools and supplies were a trip hazard...and I wasn't using the area set aside for me to glaze my pottery because it was so full of empty boxes and half-finished projects, it was just easier to glaze at the kitchen table...and that meant we had to eat somewhere else. 


Any time we had company and someone would go downstairs to get something to drink out of the spare refrigerator, I felt humiliated that others would see this mess.  This Christmas, when I was asked what I wanted for Christmas, I said "a clean basement."  


After only one solid day (two half-days) of working with El, my basement has been transformed into clean spaces to work out, to do laundry, to glaze my pottery, and for my husband to work on his projects.  Everything has been sorted and labeled and is easily found. 


I had thought I'd have to spend hundreds of dollars for special containers, but El found a way to repurpose containers I already had for storage - some of them were even in the giveaway! 

As we worked, everything was quickly sorted:  giveaways, move to other spaces, sell online, or garbage/recycle. 

El packed up her car with the items to give away and sell, so that when she left, everything was set.


Now, when I walk into the basement, I feel that I have ALL THIS SPACE.  It is amazing. Nothing less than transformative.  The feelings of despair and humiliation melted away with the mess. 


I highly recommend that anyone who might feel trapped by a disorganized space contact "The Therapeutic Organizer" - working with El made me feel respected and hopeful as she asked me questions about what I wanted for a particular space, and then we did it.   This is truly a 10/10 experience!"

I highly recommend The Therapeutic Organizer!  With having a family of 6, the house can get disorganized quickly. We were given so many helpful ideas that have not only taken away the stress of having clutter around the house but has made it so much easier to stay organized. 


Out of all the ideas that have changed my home for the better, the refrigerator makeover has to be my favorite!  Not only do my kids eat healthier now with the fruits & veggies being visible to them but it’s easy for them to grab themselves!  I plan to get more of these clear storage containers!

El is such a wonderful person and will take her time to listen to your needs and make sure your home is getting what it needs at a reasonable price!  We couldn’t be happier!

We have lived in our house for 9 years and have collected A LOT of stuff! Our basement and garage were the most overstuffed and disorderly areas and we needed help!

I was diagnosed with ADHD at age 38, so I have only recently began to really understand my habits and tendencies that make it a challenge to keep house. When looking for an organizer, I specifically wanted someone who is familiar with neurodivergent people and understands the need for functional systems that might be different from conventional home organization.

El delivered in spades. She listened without judgement to my challenges and worked with me to strategize and set me up for future success.

We worked together for 5 sessions over the course of 3 weeks and got an unbelievable amount of work done! It's so good to have an "accounabilibuddy" to encourage solo decluttering sessions between our meetings.

Our home is now like a breath of fresh air! I have my laundry room and art workspace back after months of dysfunction and inaccessibility. It was a pleasure to work with her and we can't thank her enough for helping us transform our space!
