Our Gentle Journeys LLC
I specialize in a method of decluttering and organizing the life and home while life coaching simultaneously. I use a self-constructed and developed fellow traveler approach created specifically for decluttering and organizing the home and life. This technique uses my life experiences to structure gentle inquiries and lead you to see other possible angles of your circumstance. This may provide the you with more clarity of how and why you have accumulated certain items and/or found yourself in overwhelm.
I am a professional organizer. I can work either with you or on my own. We will discuss what you want or need. I have organized in many typical circumstances including staging homes for sale, declutter and organize storage units, inside vehicles, home offices and many other locations. My specialty is when I mix both professional organizing and life coaching. I find they go together well.
I specialize in time management, work/life/self-care balance and financial budgeting however, I am willing to work in other areas if I am familiar with a process to achieve the goal. My life coaching method is a self-constructed and developed fellow traveler approach that allows the client to be more at ease when working towards their goals. I tailor my method slightly to fit with a client’s needs.
I want travel with others on a gentle journey to help them see their self-worth, improve self-confidence, stop struggling financially and manage their time more efficiently. This is what I do when someone hires me to professionally organize and declutter both their life and home.
I use intake forms to acquire important background information as well as document a reference point of the client’s state of mind and home environment when we began and reference it to measure progress. Each client is assessed as a whole, including their home environment, state of mind (optimistic, pessimistic, overwhelmed, frustrated etc.) as well as other life areas.
Before our first session the client will fill out a few intake forms and email them back to me 24 hours prior to our first session to give me time to review them. During our intake session we will discuss any answers that need clarification. We will decide on a goal and discuss the first step toward achieving it with the additional steps as a homework assignment to be completed by next session.
We work one on one with one goal at a time unless the goals make more sense to be applied together. We meet online or on the telephone once a week for 30 minutes to discuss details of the process including but not limited to the goal statement, the term of the goal, life area, obstacles, solutions, action steps to achieve the goal, target date for steps, rewards for completing steps, what achieving the goal means to the client and what areas of life it will improve. I answer any questions via email up to 5 times a week. I check my email and reply at 6 am, 12 pm and 6 pm Monday – Friday, unless I have booked appointments during these times.
