Hi, I'm Sara.
I established All Sorts Organizing because I recognized a real need. Becoming overwhelmed by life - and stuff - can happen to anyone. . .even me! It's so common that people don't know where to start, how to make the time for getting it done, or how to find resources for dealing with things they want to get rid of or store. I have been an amateur organizer all my life and have always loved helping others. But it was after helping my own parents downsize that I discovered it was something I had a passion for and could do professionally; that Professional Organizing was actually an industry!
There are lots of reasons people contact me for help:
Sometimes they just need a little assistance to get back on track.
There may be life situations - an illness, divorce, move, retirement - that necessitate extra help in managing belongings and schedules.
We have busy lives, and organizing our garage or closet is not high on most peoples' priority list, but it still presents itself every time we open that door.
Then there's this simple fact: not everyone has the "organizing gene."
My interest in helping people with organizational challenges stems from a life-long love of organizing and wanting to be of assistance to others. I have a BA in Psychology and an MA in Marriage and Family Therapy, and I am a member of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO).
Before becoming a Professional Organizer, I worked as a school counselor, a family life educator, domestic violence educator and victim advocate, and a family therapist. I am a Navy spouse and mother of three children and a Pit-Bull mix. So I understand moves, life changes, and feeling overwhelmed.
