I had great success working with a client about 5 years ago when I coached her using phone and video to help her declutter. I didn’t know it was possible to support someone from a distance, but an opportunity to help someone in this way occurred when I was enrolled in a coaching training program.
When D. heard that I was a professional organizer, she asked me if I could do a practice coaching session to help her declutter. She was very desperate, and I am always up for trying new things. So often these opportunities arise because of people’s needs. The saying, “necessity is the mother of invention” really applies!
D. wrote this about her experience:
“I first worked with Patricia during a time of some significant stress in my life. A good organizer will not only help you to get your space rearranged and functional, they will, if you are open to it, help you to see connections between your inner turmoil and your physical environment.
Patricia helped me to understand that my outer environment was not only reflecting my inner turmoil, pain and chaos, but then reflecting it back at me in an unhealthy and inefficient loop. Understanding that has helped me to detach from some of my inner pain, and that has positively affected my ability to deal with my physical environment.
An interesting part of all of this is: I have never met Patricia in person. We did ALL of our work together remotely. I shared images and live video and many sessions she was there encouraging me verbally – phone on speaker – as I worked. Crazy, huh? But it WORKED! :-)” – D K Cunningham
After I helped D., I did not pursue the long distance approach because I had plenty of work in my local area.
Then, a year or so ago, a friend asked me for coaching help to help him downsize. I spent an hour with him sharing my system, and customized it according to his needs. I was delighted to hear that he was able to move forward significantly after receiving my advice. He wrote this recommendation:
“Patricia’s simple system of categorizing my belongings was a real eye opener! It immediately gave me direction to take the first steps. Her gentle compassion and patience were invaluable as she helped me move through many blocks & resistances.”Scott Sky Masters
Then, with the Covid pandemic hitting us hard combined with the fact that I live out in the country, I decided I wanted to focus on working from home. Remembering my past successes–even though few–I decided to do some research to see if anyone else was doing virtual organizing consulting.
Clever Girl Organizing is one of the people I found who seems to be successful in this practice. When I discovered other people were doing this, I felt reassured that this is a practical goal for me and a way to help people all over the world!
Out of the blue, without me doing any advertising, I got a text from a person who wanted to know about my organizing services.
I suggested that we try doing this from a distance, and I gave her a fantastic rate in exchange for me being able to experiment, and for her recommendation if she was happy.
I felt overjoyed to get this testimonial after only 2 sessions (3 hours total.)
“Before I met Patricia, I was drowning in so much clutter and it was extremely overwhelming. I had made several attempts to de-clutter on my own, but failed miserably each time. I eventually gave up, until one day I looked at my surroundings and said enough is enough!Realizing that I needed help, I googled ‘professional organizers‘ and I came across Patricia‘s website.
What caught my eye was the following phrase on her website: “I am especially good at quickly putting chaos into order and I have developed a systematic process that will help you get decluttered fast and stay that way“.I contacted Patricia and after my first session with her, I was amazed by her techniques and systematic process of getting clutter under control.So far
I’ve had 2 sessions with Patricia, for my office and bedroom. I can’t remember the last time my room looked so decluttered!To anyone that feels overwhelmed and defeated by their clutter, give Patricia a call.” Heidi
I enjoyed working with Heidi so much! I intuitively knew how to help her declutter in record time. With my past long-distance clients, I didn’t have the experience of seeing immediate results. But because I was mentally ready to guide my new client through a process where she worked as I guided her, the results were astonishing to both of us!
With 20 years of organizing under my belt along with a life-long ability to put items in order, and my recent experience, I feel confident that I can be effective in supporting people in getting organized from a distance.
I am still willing to go to people’s homes to work. Having someone help label, move boxes, pre-sort, and do other physical aspects of decluttering makes the job go faster. But if I can save clients money, and empower him or her to learn skills that help them do the job themselves, I feel very satisfied.
I also want to help clients find volunteers or hire people who can learn my systems who can then support the clients physically. Some people don’t have the strength to do the work, and I want to be able to help them. Often, time is of the essence, and many hands make the work lighter, as they say.
Thanks for reading this. If you want to contact me for a free 1/2 hour session, I will be happy to talk to you!

A JOYOUS, PEACEFUL FUTURE AWAITS: Words from a satisfied customer
“Because I knew that Patricia had assisted on one of the TV hoarder shows, I figured my space wasn’t actually quite as bad as that, so I didn’t mind sharing my long standing and worsening disaster with her. I started from a position as a skilled professional who helps other people with all kinds of problems but who was absolutely humiliated and embarrassed by my inability to cope with my own physical space, and frankly, the personal psychological pain and issues that disorganization represented.
I had my doubts about the amount of help chatting with someone in Arkansas by speakerphone while cleaning in NYC would be, but my sessions with Patricia have changed my life and my daughter’s for the better. It feels like a crushing weight is slowly and surely being lifted from my shoulders and my spirit.
Patricia NEVER judges, pushes very gently (but inexorably), and she is endlessly encouraging. Her system is practical, sensible, doable, and adaptable. The progress that has already been made after YEARS of increasing clutter and disorganization is hard to believe.
I’m one of those clients who will need to use the Simplified Living Coach “retainer” package for periodic and regular organizational “booster shots”. I’m just so grateful.
“So today I just finished another session with Patricia. This time we worked on decluttering my kitchen and bathroom. Once again, I was amazed on how streamlined and systematic her advice on decluttering is.
The other thing was that we started talking about morning routines, the importance of exercise, drinking water and other health habits. Well this led me to set a goal to improve my morning routine.
I never would have thought that I could also have a nice therapeutic session while de-cluttering.
Today’s session made me feel more committed to improving my life.
And one more thing which is probably the best part, we always start and end each session with prayer.
I feel truly blessed to have met Patricia at this time in my life.
Thanks to Robbie Starbuck for putting together this awesome list. Thank you Karlyn Borysenko for her tireless work to help wake people up. I’m glad she introduced me to Robbie Starbuck.

Thank you for reading this list of lesser known Trump accomplishments. I made this after being asked countless times by friends, clients and celebrities why I support President Trump. Despite working as a director and producer in Hollywood who has directed Oscar winning actors and won major video awards, I have a duty to my country first even if it hurts my career.
I want to stress to independent voters that it’s okay if you don’t like the way Trump tweets QR talks, look objectively at what he’s done to improve our country with his policies and vote for those instead of the market/economy causing policy of the Democrats. Coronavirus has hit us hard but President Trump and his team made our economy great once already, and they can and will do it again! #keepamericagreat
Free free to follow me on Twitter, Youtube, IG and Facebook @Robbystarbuck for more updates to this list! I will update it regularly. The best thing you could do going into 2020 is to print or email this list and distribute among your neighbors, friends, family, and others. Let them know what our president has done in only 3 years while the media, the Democratic Party and Hollywood have fought him at every turn.
I can’t stress enough, with the media working against us, we have to do what we can to spread the truth about what his administration has done. When most people see this list they just can’t believe that the news has told them so little about what he has accomplished.

Here is a fresh recommendation–I did this job from a distance using Zoom!
“Before I met Patricia, I was drowning in so much clutter and it was extremely overwhelming. I had made several attempts to de-clutter on my own, but failed miserably each time. I eventually gave up, until one day I looked at my surroundings and said enough is enough!
Realizing that I needed help, I googled ‘professional organizers‘ and I came across Patricia‘s website.
What caught my eye was the following phrase on her website: “I am especially good at quickly putting chaos into order and I have developed a systematic process that will help you get decluttered fast and stay that way“.
I contacted Patricia and after my first session with her, I was amazed by her techniques and systematic process of getting clutter under control.
So far I’ve had 2 sessions with Patricia, for my office and bedroom. I can’t remember the last time my room looked so decluttered!
To anyone that feels overwhelmed and defeated by their clutter, give Patricia a call.”
Step 5. Create a staging area for the decluttered items. If this is really difficult, move on to step 6. Choose a space that does not have much on it. Place these items on a space in the room to be de-cluttered–even if you need to pile them gently on top of each other in a corner.
If this is really difficult, you can take the boxes that you will sort below to another room–set on couch, or some other cleared space. Hall ways will work, also. This is very temporary.
Step 4: Gather up small things that you definitely need to have. Place them in the smaller shallow boxes. Place these items outside of the room in a hall way temporarily.
Step 4: Gather up the medium sized things you definitely need to have accessible: Place in larger shallow boxes
You can label the above boxes if you like, but since you will be keep this box in a handy place, and most likely can recognize the items, it is not absolutely necessary.
Step 5: Label boxes
You will not be sorting anything yet. The key is to go really fast in this first stage so you can quickly get decluttered and feel the great satisfaction of having cleared space.
Step 5. Now, start with the area you most want to declutter.
Papers, and all flat items like picture frames, office supplies, stuff to recycle–go in flat.
The other items are self-explanatory
If something is breakable, you can set them aside together on the space that is getting cleared. I recommend not packing in a box right now because it slows you down.
If something is very large–like a big pillow or bundle of clothes–you can stack in a corner or some other appropriate place. Breakable items like lamps can go near that corner.
Now, after everything is cleared, you should have a place to stack the boxes.
You are now ready to sort and get rid of things, or find homes for things.
