Institute for Challenging Disorganization “ADD Specialist” (aka “Attention Difference Distractability” factor)

Through obtaining this special recognition and growing up with 3 ADD brothers, it is an honor to learn and live with this unstructured and creative community. If it weren’t for people like Thomas Edison who created electricty and Walt Disney who gave us joy and dreams as a child, and still as an adult, what would our life be like today (and women too like Cher), along with millions of other ADDers that have graced our path? The creativity and spark they provide is just a miracle. To receive this designation has given me the skills, experience, and knowledge to help all ADDers achieve their dreams and aspirations.

Institute for Challenging Disorganization “CD Specialist” (Chronic Disorganization)

With all the challenges we have on a daily basis and information overload, our lives have been more complexed than ever before in history, rather than a more simplified lifestyle to enjoy. To receive this designation and wonderful educational training, I look beyond the physical clutter, and look at the person’s emotional/psychological obstacles that causes this never-ending world of disorganization of stress, anxiety, and even depression. It is with an open heart, that I embrace these individuals and help them through identifying, strategizing, simplifying, and organizing their lives.

Institute for Challenging Disorganization “Hoarding Specialist”

As hoarding has been more prevalent in today’s society, it important to have a support system of professionals for this delicate, emotional, and sensitive issue. There is less than 1% of professional organizers in the world that have this prestigous recognition to assist the hoarding community through compassion, understanding and a nonjudgmental attitude to help these individuals live in a safe and healthy environment.
