Clutter and Depression
The average American home has 300,000 items and $16,000 in credit card debt. The average person spends 55 minutes every day looking for stuff. Only 25% of garages have enough room to store both their vehicles. There is a strong link between disorganization and depression and a direct correlation to how much clutter is in a home and how much stress a mother feels.
A cluttered environment can negatively effect our life experience by manifesting as anxiety, stress, shame, or embarrassment. But there is another way, sweet friend, and I am here to guide you on that path.

Peace Within Begins at Home
Imagine yourself in a space with no clutter. Imagine you know where everything is. Imagine the feeling of sweet relief as you find yourself feeling better in a space that nurtures your intentions.
Decluttering is not just about removing items—it's about letting go of chaos and bringing tranquility into your life. Deep inside each of us is a need to have a place of refuge where peace and serenity prevail, a place where we can reset, regroup and reenergize.
I believe our homes set the tone for our lives and that a beautiful home sets the stage for a beautiful life.
Clear the Clutter, Transform Your Life
Clearing clutter is the stepping stone to letting go of unnecessary attachments and living in peace. We can literally transform our lives simply by clearing it.
Once we start clearing clutter an internal transformation takes place. By eliminating the unnecessary we start to focus on what matters, fostering a life lived with intention.
Letting Go Is Better Than Adding
The best way to find out what we really need is to get rid of what we don't. When we are surrounded by the things we love we realize we have everything we need. We become content with who we are and what we have.
Letting go of possessions is just the beginning; discarding things that no longer serve us is a skill we can apply to other areas of our life:
- letting go of negativity / things out of our control
- gaining confidence in our decision making capability
- finding our worldly desires decrease
- being content with who we are and what we have
- eliminating toxic relationships
- living life on purpose
A sacred space is a reminder to live an intentional life.
Your home is an extension of yourself—let it feed, fuel, nurture, and energize you to accomplishing your life's purpose. You have a gift to offer this world that no one else can. It would be an honor to be a part of your journey.
