I know what it’s like to experience horrifying events, survive it and feeling that you lose control of your life.
I know what it’s like to have Zero energy, difficulty sleeping because of the nightmares and in consequence not apt in doing any chores.
I know how difficult it is to be triggered into flashbacks and being so anxious that you are isolated in your home.
I know what it feels when people are telling you “just go over it”, but you are not capable of doing so, then it just makes you angrier and you start negative and diminishing self-talk.
I know what it’s like to be sitting on the couch, not able to get up to achieve anything, even if you really desire a tidy place, because you are paralyzed not knowing where to start.
I know what it’s like to see piles and piles of papers, dishes and stuff, and not being able to clean and organize them.
I know what it’s like to go from one medical appointment to the other, to taxi kids around, to try to work few hours and to have no time for yourself and to take care of the home.
I know what it feels like to be in each of these situations, because I’ve been in every Single One.
The desperation and fear and mess in my house and shame I’ve lived during these times in my life were just too much..
BUT… I also know what it’s like to go through and feel way better.
I know how empowering it feels when you take back the control of your life and decide what you want in it. And finally learn that it is possible to recover and discover how much it is worth it.
I know the freedom of understanding that regular exercises, routines and mindfulness help you re-energize and sleep better. And ith more energy the fulfillment of being able to maintain a tidy house.
I know how relieving it feels when you finally get organized and learn that your space reflects your mind — a cleared and organized home is the reflection of a strong and free mind.
I know the freedom of adding meaningful life balance in our time practice, of having good routines and of discovering how much time you can save when you are well organized.
I know what it feels like to finally learn to control your anxiety and to accept the part you cannot change so you are able to discover the world.
I know the sensation to start putting you first and to show yourself more love, empathy and respect – that self-care is not selfish and even more is the beginning of opening yourself to others.
I know that when we are well supported in our effort to start doing something we are able to achieve that task we were thinking impossible and we are able to give everyone else around the best of you…
… not only your living trauma
WHAT YOU WILL GET HERE?
I was studying Occupational Therapy in university and I was not even aware that Professional Organizing was something …
Through a long series of events I understand that I have C-PTSD (Complex-Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) and started taking care of myself, of my family, of my house.
I ended up getting certified as a Home Stager to realize majority of my clients needed help primarily in their decluttering and organizing prior to any home staging.
While working with my clients, I discovered the interconnection between the clutter, and messy house with surviving traumatic event.
I started researching to find out there are scientific correlation between having a tendency to holding to stuff and suffering a trauma.
I realized that when I shared my story about trauma and clutter it gave me the chance to connect and help people, through that vulnerability, that are experiencing the same shame, pain or overwhelming feeling.
I started to talk about things that people are ashamed of and very few talk about:
Trauma and Clutter
I wrote a book, with my husband, and developed an online program to help people start their journey to cope with their trauma. I also started this so women feeling exactly the same way as me, can get harmless and resourceful information all at the same place delivered at their rhythm – and stop being overwhelmed by the subscriptions to tons of emails and newsletters.
I continue to share relevant story and tools on my YouTube Channel and my Podcast. The information I share is all about guiding you through your struggles, helping you developing the right habits for you and giving you tools to declutter and organize well.
I am excited to launch our new Put That Stuff Down program, to provide you with the best tools to deal with trauma and start your decluttering journey. This program is the exact starting point I would give my family, my children and my friends if they suffer from any trauma (concussion, bad divorce, abusive or war situation…).
The program can help you train your mind to develop the path you want to achieve in life, and to know what steps you need to get there and to work on what is holding you back from moving forward.
I do believe that reducing your stress, calming your mind, simplifying your living space and having healthy time practice will improve your physical and emotional health. I know that, because I’ve been there. Let me help you achieving it.
Your biggest Fan and Friend,
