Getting to Know Elissa
How did you come to organizing as a professional?
I spent years working in administrative support positions, and found the organizational tasks were always where I was able to shine. It gives me a sense of satisfaction to tackle a difficult space and see the results in just a few hours.
How many years do you have in this profession?
I've been organizing professionally since 2007
What keeps you going when things are hard?
The clients keep me going when it's hard! I really value the relationships and friendships forged, as short or long as they may be. It's critical to give people a sense of resolution and to deliver what I know can be life-changing outcomes.
What events in your life have motivated you toward organizing and helping others?
I have a strong background in both child development and mental health/neurodiversity, and I believe that's the backbone of what I do. It informs every step of my process; I want your mental health cared for the entire time we're working, and beyond.
What are some things you want people to know about you?
I honestly care about you. Yes, you! I want to deliver a process that makes you feel heard, seen, and attended to in areas where we all struggle. No job is too complex; I've done work from serious hoarding jobs to quite organized but overcrowded spaces. I seek out clients who need the kind of help I can give: a holistic mind & space clearing process.
I really look forward to connecting with you, so please don't hesitate to reach out to me.
