Q: What overall services do you provide as a professional organizer in Northern Virginia?

A: I offer moving assistance, decluttering and donation drop offs, personalized systems designed for your home, access to trade discounts from upscale retailers, laundry folding, closets, pantries, offices and more!


Q: What kind of services do you offer for expectant mothers specifically?

A: As a new mom it was so important for me to have babes clothes set up with easy access! I offer nursery prep, clearing a room to become a nursery, and I can even assemble furniture!


Q: When and how did you get into this line of work?

A: I formed my business March 2022 but have been organizing for several years. I started because of my love of helping friends and family get control of their space, and I moved so many times I learned what to take and what to leave.


Q: What does the process look like when working with you at Clarifying Spaces?

A: The process looks something like me making a huge mess, taking everything out of the space I’m working in to go through and separate into keep and give away piles, and then putting everything back up in a more organized fashion.

Q: How much time do you typically dedicate to a particular job?

A: Every job is different, but I’m extremely dedicated and prefer to work until it’s finished! Typically 7 hours max.


Q: Do you offer any kind of ongoing service at Clarifying Spaces?

A: I offer all clients a “refresh” every couple of months to touch up any space I’ve previously organized to keep it functioning.


Q: How would you handle organizing a home that doesn’t have a lot of storage/closet space?

A: I’ve lived in small spaces so I have some creative ways, but I will say lots and lots of under the bed bins, and I definitely recommend getting furniture with storage like a lift top coffee table or ottoman.


Q: Is there anything else you would like potential clients to know about hiring Clarifying Spaces?

A: I love working with people and will do anything in my power to make my clients feel comfortable and judgement free throughout the process! While working with me we’re smiling, laughing, and relating! I like to feel as though we’re in this together and investing in your home.
