ORGANIZING, ETC. by Ellen Treu Cohen


I have always been both artistic and organized, but my most important skill as a Professional Organizer is empathy. While the classic organizing skills (prioritizing, categorizing, and arranging space) are indeed second nature to me, it is just as easy for me to understand that other people – even very intelligent, talented, and accomplished people – struggle with these very skills… I also know that life circumstances can throw even the most organized among us off track.

Collaborating with my clients to develop personalized organizing solutions is a joy! I truly love helping people feel better about their lives by improving their use of space, time, and organizing tools. This is a contribution I can make in a unique way.

Many years ago, when I started my business, I focused on my artistic interests: painting, creating illuminated calligraphy documents, and interior design. As time went on, I saw that helping my clients organize their space often went hand-in-hand with decorating it! The more I organized for people, the more I wanted to concentrate on that side of myself. I love my work more each day!

Let my passion for organizing enhance your life and beautify your home!
