I established All Sorts Organizing because I recognized a real need. After helping my own parents downsize from their home of 50 years, I saw how critical my assistance was and discovered that organizing was a tangible way I could help people. I later learned that Professional Organizing was actually an industry, and I then knew I had to start my own business. That was five years ago! In fact, I just received “Golden Circle” status from the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO).
I have been interested in helping others for as long as I can remember. I studied psychology in college and went on to receive a master’s in marriage and family therapy. I have worked as a school counselor, domestic violence victim advocate, and a family therapist. As a member of NAPO, I subscribe to their code of ethics and benefit from continuing education and resources they provide. Besides having the practical skills of organizing, I understand family dynamics and life cycle changes, and really empathize with people who want to make a change but aren’t quite sure how to.
Most recently, I became a graduate of the Coach Approach Foundation Training Program, a one-year comprehensive coach training program accredited by the International Coaching Federation. This training allows me to broaden the depth and breadth of ways I can help people get more out of life. This approach to listening, questioning, and helping people develop more personal awareness informs all I do – from helping people declutter to making decisions about what to do next in life. It’s yet another step in my journey to find new ways to help people live more efficiently and fully. Nothing should hold us back from making the most of life: not piles of clutter, crazy schedules, or doubts about what we can accomplish.
As a Navy spouse and mother of three children and a dog, I know how it feels to be overwhelmed and in a state of transition. And I recognize the value of asking for help. It’s a big step, but one worth taking.
“Sara is a life saver. She not only helped me declutter, purge and organize my house, she helped me get through my parents’ and both of their parents’ things that I acquired after I sold their house. Then she helped me purge again after I sold my other home and brought back more furniture and belongings. Sara is VERY professional and reliable and has a knack for making your home, garage or wherever feel refreshed, neat and organized! I know EXACTLY where to go when I need something!”
