Women who are overwhelmed, but ready to take action, contact SOS to help them simplify their life by eliminating the excess that weighs them down and causes them to feel stuck. Stuck in a way that keeps them from moving forward in their life.
They crave the freedom to get out there to see what the world has to offer as they move into the next chapter of their life.
Many years of accumulating things, as well as other family member’s things, that they no longer want or even remember they have, turned into clutter. The clutter is like a boat anchor that weighs them down.
These women want to downsize their things, or maybe even their homes to provide a clear path to bring in fresh air so they can breathe, so they can think clearly, so they can regain peace of mind.
With a clear mind it’s easy to make plans to do more of the things that matter to you, that make you happy. The possibilities are endless!
We would love to collaborate with you to open the door to the next chapter of your life!

There have been times while working with a client, that they want me to put something someplace just for now. We will be working in a room and find an item that belongs elsewhere but doesn’t have an assigned home. That’s when I’m asked to put something someplace just for now.

Stagnant energy causes stress, and stress steals your peace. Think about your house when it’s [...]
