Praise & Gratitude

Actually getting started on this long thought-about and talked-about purging and organizing project was a huge challenge. I did not think that I could make decisions about what to keep and what to let go of. I really thought I was incapable of it. That sense of intimidation and fear kept me paralyzed, and I realized I needed support.

Scheduling my Clarity Call with Adrian was the first step, and I felt very encouraged talking with her. Since then, it’s been a life changing experience.

The organizing sessions have given me brand new confidence in myself. I now know I am capable of making the decisions I’d thought I was incapable of. I can move forward with confidence, not just in my home but in my life!

My storage closet went from being a place of unintentional chaos to a lovely place that holds the things that I truly want in my life. My bookshelf now holds the books that remind me of who I am and what’s important to me, and they are arranged in a way that makes me smile to see them. My clothing closet shifted from feeling heavy, frustrating, and dreadful to spacious, exciting, and easy. Every day when I go into my clothing closet, I am reminded of what I am capable of and what is possible.

In addition, I’m inspired and motivated to clean out and organize more. I never thought I’d know how to create organization in my life let alone be excited about creating it, yet that’s how I feel now! I am even as bold as to think that I might be able to help my parents get their house in better shape. This is huge for me.

Adrian’s support is a great balance of information, encouragement, and discipline. She gives you excellent tools to work with, and supports you with compassion, encouraging smiles, and lots of laughs. AND she keeps you moving at a brisk pace. This taught me the value of completing tasks, gave me an awesome sense of accomplishment, and created beautiful results that I get to live with every day.

My sessions with Adrian are the most empowering thing I’ve experienced in a long time. I’m proud of myself and so grateful for Adrian’s support to get me here. What an excellent use of a handful of Saturday mornings!!

As a self-employed mother of three, having Adrian’s support in our home once a month is vital to my peace of mind ~ I swear it’s even better than therapy. There is a sense of calm because so many closets and cabinets have already been dealt with (and are staying nice!), and when I notice an area of chaos, I can breathe easy knowing that it will get transformed during our next session.

I have worked with four other professional organizers in Asheville, and Adrian is the first one that I’ve wanted to work with on an ongoing basis. She is fun, light, grounded, and present; there is ease and flow to our work together.

Having Adrian’s support also gives me confidence in creating my bigger business vision. I used to really buy into the voice of “I can’t start X when I can’t even keep my desk clean!!” and now I realize “No problem, I can get help with that!”

Even months after working with Adrian, our home continues to have less clutter because of just a few minor and powerful changes we made during our session! The peace created from these simple shifts has made the rest of my VERY BUSY life feel easier and more streamlined.

Working with Adrian felt comfortable and empowering. Her gentle facilitation allowed me to trust my internal guidance and to bring playfulness into our organizing work. And because she helped me get energetically right with what we were organizing, the changes have lasted!

Hiring Adrian is honestly the best money I’ve ever spent. Our home went from feeling chaotic and frustrating to settled, cohesive, and calm. The emotional and functional benefits are so worth it.

Adrian is fun to work with; she is understanding and non-judgmental. We laughed and had a good time, and yet she was so good at refocusing us and keeping the project moving forward efficiently.

What surprised me the most about working with Adrian was how much we accomplished in a relatively short amount of time. At the end of each session, I was amazed.

Before Adrian helped me do a complete makeover on my office, I felt overwhelmed by the chaos. I avoided my office closet whenever possible, feeling embarrassed by the degree of dysfunction hiding inside. Though on the surface parts of my office were clean, I knew every drawer and door and file cabinet was stuffed with disorganization that felt like the kryptonite to my entrepreneurial superpowers.

Finally I realized that this behind-the-scenes craziness was slowing down the growth of my business. I needed to have organized functioning systems in place to increase my capacity to welcome in new clients & income.

During my first session with Adrian, she helped me connect with the deeper meaning of this office makeover project – it was for me to no longer hold back and cover up my real power. Knowing the inner significance beneath all the de-cluttering and reorganizing inspired me towards the finish line. In order for me to maximize my gifts and step into my full power as a soulful business coach, I had to create an optimal workspace. (more…)

Before my first session with Adrian, I’d been attempting to share my husband’s office space, but that felt stressful.  Together with Adrian, in less than two hours, we created my very own light-filled, inspiring space! The process was fun and exciting for me, and sitting here now, I feel expansive and free.  

Adrian worked her magic and ignited a deep shift in our home. In the week since, I’ve continued to tweak my new office with great enthusiasm, we’ve hung pictures in our bedroom that I’ve wanted to hang for nearly four years, and we’ve taken such a huge truckload of stuff to Goodwill that our neighbors asked if we were moving (no, just getting rid of a third of what was in three closets!).

Before working with Adrian, my clothing closet was where I put things I didn’t know what to do with.  Overloaded hangers were smooshed against each other, and the upper shelf and floor were a mishmash of hidden presents, clothes my children had grown out of, extra bedding, and files for my business. It felt chaotic and overwhelming. (more…)

Organizing my stuff is always on my list of things to do but it always get postponed and moved to the very bottom. At times the process of organizing has been so daunting, I have found myself sitting in a corner staring at the ground. Working with Adrian was so uplifting! I found myself enjoying the process of going through my stuff and even the next day, I went through more things on my own because it gave me such joy! (more…)

On the brink of a photo shoot for rebranding my business (and honoring my 40th birthday!), I was pondering what to wear. I wanted to wear something that expressed my essence, but my closet was uninspiring, overstuffed with humdrum practical outfits. I thought I would need to go out and buy new clothes. Then, in walked Adrian. (more…)
