About Mary Anne:: Working Style (and Philosophy of Organizing)

First and foremost, please know that I am mindful of the fact that an initial communication may be a very difficult step for you. It certainly was for me when I finally admitted that I needed organizing help with issues that were out of range of my expertise, and as important, time available to complete the project. I felt vulnerable in making those admissions! Yet, in working with someone whom I respected, I could acknowledge my organizing talents and accept my organizing deficits and inability to "do it all."

  • Simplify, organize, and utilize storage spaces and living environments effectively

  • If you qualify to receive training through the Colorado Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, and could benefit by assistance in personal life management training, independent living skills, or job coaching;
  • If you need assistance in re-learning organizing and/or life management skills because you have been in an accident and are covered through an insurance claim.

In addition...

  • As a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO), I subscribe to and honor the NAPO Code of Ethics.
  • Your phone call, letter, or email is the first step toward...
