Welcome to Declare Order Professional Organizing

Redefining Spaces, Reclaiming Lives

Hi, I’m Leslie, your Brain-Based Conditions Specialist and Hoarding Consultant. At Declare Order, I go beyond traditional organizing. I specialize in creating sustainable, compassionate solutions for hoarding situations and assisting individuals with brain-based conditions that lead to chronic disorganization.

Understanding, Not Just Organizing

My approach is rooted in empathy and expertise. I understand that each situation is unique and requires more than just a clean-out. Sustainable solutions are about understanding, support, and tailored strategies.

How the Declare Order Solutions Model Transforms Lives:

  1. Strength-Based Focus: Identify and build upon your inherent strengths and resources, shifting the focus from problems to potential.
  2. Empowerment and Proactivity: Feel encouraged and equipped to address organizational challenges with a positive, proactive approach.
  3. Progress Monitoring and Celebration: Witnessing tangible progress is vital. We celebrate each step forward, acknowledging the journey towards a more organized, functional living space.
  4. Specialized in Brain-Based Conditions: My expertise in working with brain-based conditions means I offer more than organizing — I provide understanding, strategies, and advocacy to reduce stigma and work toward positive change.
  5. Holistic Benefits: Witness improvements in physical, mental, and social health, fostering a stronger connection to your family and community.

What I Do (And What I Don’t):

Hoarding Consultancy: Guidance and strategies for families and individuals dealing with hoarding.

Family Navigation: Helping families understand and navigate their options in dealing with complex organizing challenges.

Awareness and Advocacy: Raising awareness about hoarding and brain-based conditions, advocating for compassionate solutions.

Clean-Outs: I focus on long-term solutions and support, not one-time clean-outs.

Ready to Start Your Journey?

Every journey begins with a single step. If you or a loved one is struggling with hoarding or the challenges of a brain-based condition, let’s talk. Together, we can embark on a path to a more organized, peaceful, and fulfilling living environment.
