Tips and musings on organizing your way from chaos to calm

About Eve

I know how frustrating  struggling with disorganization can feel. Professionally, I’m a credentialed Specialist in Chronic Disorganization and owner of Organized Tranquility.    I’ve seen (and tackled!)  the whole spectrum of disorganization.   I approach clutter issues with humor, compassion, and the firm belief that we control the stuff (not the other way around).

I come at organizing from a  unique perspective.

First, I have PhD in political philosophy and am deeply interested in the psychology behind disorganization:

  • Why do we do what we do when we want what we want?
  • What is the meaning behind the stuff?  What purpose is it serving?
  • How is the way we manage our time and things related to how we think and learn?

Second,  I have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).  I know from my own experience how challenging  (okay, down right maddening) it can be to balance multiple commitments, to not over-promise and under-deliver, and to stay on top of all the stuff that passes through our door every day.  So I truly walk the talk (or at least try to!). My interest in understanding my own challenges, as well as similar issues my clients struggle with, has prompted me to become a specialist in chronic disorganization, ADD/ADHD, and hoarding.

Me and my cutie

I’m also the very proud mom of a handsome, lovable toddler who keeps me on the go, the lucky wife of my wonderful husband (AKA “my hubby”), and an enthusiastic home cook.   I love professional football (Go Eagles!), painting acrylic on canvas, and late-night marathons of Young & the Restless.  Oh, and I plan to be on Oprah but it hasn’t made it to the top of my To Do list yet…
