Clutter and disorganization affects you emotionally. Don’t let fear or shame prevent you from living in the wonderful haven you deserve! You will never feel judged with us.
We meet any organizational challenge with innovative solutions.
Clutter is a just a delayed decision. Whether you need to organize your workspace to save time and boost productivity, or just want to come home to a peaceful and organized environment free of clutter, we can help. I take the time to listen to your needs, identify your strengths, and provide systems that work for you. We will create zones in each room to maximum storage which will help you develop the tools necessary to keep your space organized. Having an organizer keeps you on task and you accomplish twice as much in half the time. Simplicity and clarity promote productivity and bring balance to your life.
We provide coaching and organizing in combination, or independently, including stand-alone coaching. I use explicit methodology from beginning to end incorporating the ability to identify strengths and using them as your foundation. As a Coach, I am your accountability partner. I will coach you through the process, assist you with any roadblocks and help you maintain your customized systems. My coaching experience includes working with clients who have brain-based conditions such as, ADHD, Hoarding, Anxiety and Depression.
Moving is an exciting, overwhelming and exhausting time for your clients. Many sellers need help getting their homes market ready, and buyers may need assistance when preparing for their next transition. We can help your clients with setting up systems for decluttering and storing items; keeping track of packed or stored possessions; and having someone to lean on when emotions are overwhelming. It takes a team to get a home on the market. Together we can make the transition smooth, calm and productive.
I work side by side with clients to organize zones for their items. Our goal is to optimize space and personalize a system that works for them. We carefully unpack and sort through all boxes to ensure that there is no damage and put everything in its new and proper place. When packing a home, we focus on only packing what you love, need and want. By discarding excess on the front end, you save time and money. Physically, you aren’t moving as many boxes, and emotionally these items will no longer weigh you down.
Rightsizing is when you are settling into a different sized space that suits your needs. Sometimes that means you will reside in a smaller home, which may require you to pare down your possessions. This is a great opportunity to bring to your new space only what you love, need and want. This is the perfect time to declutter the past, so you that have time to live in the present. Letting go of the past makes room for present and future exciting opportunities.
Many times a family is overwhelmed by the tasks involved in settling their loved one’s estate. Estate Organizing generally means working with family members to keep what is most important and consign, donate or gift their possessions. In a time of grief, it helps to have a professional who can help them navigate through many years or decades of lifelong treasures. Knowing you have someone by your side gives you peace of mind. Having an accountability partner helps you stay focused on completing this necessary process.
“We downsized our home and called upon Christy to help us. Our biggest project was our garage. She assessed our space and purchased bins to hold our items, and worked with our custom garage company to accessorize and label the items in our garage She worked expeditiously to create a good flow in our space. We highly recommend Christy to others!”

I contacted Transitions TLC to help me with an upcoming relocation. My husband had already moved out of town for his new job and I was completely anxious and overwhelmed with all of the stuff that needed to be moved. I was embarrassed at how my house had “gotten away from me” over the years, with not only our possessions, but additional items from another family member. At our first meeting, I was in literally in tears and the task was so overwhelming that I didn’t even know how to begin to address this monumental task. I simply didn’t have the time, energy or motivation to deal with it. Christy was such a tremendous help. There was never any judgement on her part and I appreciated her calm demeanor and her approach to “just taking it one step at a time.”
She helped me categorize our furnishings and to keep only what I would use, need or love. She had many resources and knew exactly where I could sell or gift our many keepsakes and antiques. We have a relocation budget, and I know we will stick to it by having fewer boxes to move. In addition, when we get in our new home, I can put into practice the new organizing techniques that I learned from her. I am so grateful for her help and I highly recommend Christy to others.

“I have known Christy for over 25 years and she is a delightful, caring person and helps others with a smile. She assisted us in organizing our home in Ladue. After 4 children and 30 years of clutter, we were ready to address the problem. Christy listened to us, then led us room by room to discuss her strategies. She helped us with our furnishings, and organizing our closets, and shelves. She was innovative and prepared and labeled everything in our closets. Afterwards she sure that everything had a proper place and was easy to locate. Christy went the extra mile during every session. We were impressed with her foresight, and her expertise was invaluable. She is very easy to work with and definitely exceeded our expectations!”

As a busy professional I simply did not have the time to pack, organize, and wait around for movers. Christy helped me by organizing and packing all the small knick knack things from my kitchen, bedroom, living room, basement, office, and bathroom. In the new place she was able to reorganize all the miscellaneous items in a new way that saved space and looked great. I consider myself a tidy person but Christy’s expertise in organizing shed a new light and respect for professional organizers. Christy was also able to help me save time by being available and attentive to the movers while I was at work. I have moved five times in the past three years and if I have to move again she is my first call. Christy gave me piece of mind, comfort, and flexibility in a stressful moving situation.

“My wife and I contacted Christy to help us organize our home that we were getting ready to sell. She had great solutions when it came to organizing our children’s toys, by creating additional storage space in the basement. Once the space was organized properly, she was able to get children on board with a list of activities to reinforce the habit of tidying up after playtime. We actually ended up staying in our home instead of listing it!”

In the Design business, one of the first steps towards creating a beautiful and functional interior is establishing an organized and clutter-free environment. This can be an overwhelming and low-priority project for many homeowners; the true value of an organized space is rarely appreciated until it is achieved. For clients who need that extra help getting started, I refer them to Christy at Transitions TLC. In a caring and non-judgmental way, Christy will take the time to listen to you, understand how your household works, and then help you organize your space by guiding you through the process of deciding what needs to be kept and what does not. Once you make the decision to let go of something, Christy will take care of all the details and leg-work: The end result is a beautifully organized space and much less stress! Not only will you love working with Christy, you will love how quickly she’s able to bring order to your world.
