  • People experiencing traumatic illness or injury, including Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

  • Situational Disorganization clients. Situational disorganization occurs when one finds oneself in clutter or chaos for a short period of time, resulting from an unusual turn of events or changes in living arrangements
  • Chronically disorganized clients

The SPACE Process:

The SPACE process can be used for any type of organizing: time & calendar management, paper & electronic file systems, large spaces organizing, and move management. SPACE stands for Sort, Purge, Assign a home, Containerize, & Equalize.

We start by sorting like with like, purging unneeded items as we go. Then we  determine where things live and how they’re stored. Finally we’ll work on the maintenance part of the organizing process.

All work we do is confidential, non-judgmental and tailored to your specific lifestyle & requirements.
