Christy offers 1:1 sessions helping people organize, manage and downsize their belongings so they can get on with doing the things they want to do. She also helps with larger projects such as downsizing to a smaller living space, or moving a loved family member into a retirement residence, by gathering a team of organizers, cleaners and movers, or any other appropriate resources to ensure the transition goes as smoothly as possible.

Her organization style is, logical and efficient, and she connects with her clients in a manner which they find empathetic, reliable, efficient and resourceful.
What we believe
Regardless of age, background, health or mobility, everyone should feel comfortable and safe in their home, and always have control over their own possessions and decisions. We equip our clients with an organized and manageable lifestyle ensuring accessibility to valued belongings and promoting a respectful quality of life.
Our aim is to keep clients safely in their homes for as long as they want to be with personalized systems that support independent living. If the client requires relocation to a smaller residence, we empathetically assist with reducing the amount of belongings for the client, ensuring the most valued items are respected and placed appropriately. We keep things from going to landfill by encouraging donation, selling, repurposing, and recycling.
