I am a Professional Organizer in Tucson and specialize in assisting clients with hoarding behavior and excess clutter, including those who struggle with ADHD, chronic disorganization and anxiety disorders. I have personally been where my clients are at: overwhelmed with clutter and too much stuff. Helping people discover a less debilitating and more joyful life is my passion!
I am also a student of psychology and mental health counseling at the University of Arizona and am now attending graduate school to become licensed to provide therapy for disability rehabilitation and treatment of mental health disorders such as Hoarding Disorder.
I host a hoarding behavior support group Called “Excess Denied” on the third Friday of each month (with rare exceptions) from 7:00-9:00 PM in Tucson, AZ. This group is open to the public, but please email me at ExcessDeniedTucson@gmail.com if you are interested in attending.
Renting a self storage unit can be a great way to reduce clutter and free up needed space at the home or office. A storage unit is a smart place to keep a few boxes, old appliances, memorabilia, records,keep sakes and old toys.
Often self storage units offer more security than homes. Self storage facilities provide security features not normally found in homes. In addition to a lock, facilities are often protected by a security fence, surveillance cameras, gated entry, limited entry after hours, exterior lighting and possibly security guards or onsite management. You may choose to purchase an in-home security system for your home. While this may protect the items stored in your home, will it protect items left in your yard? What about that backyard storage shed? Self storage units give you the benefits of both extra storage space and added security.
Some items pose potential hazards at home and need to be placed in a secure area to ensure the safety of your family. You may be handy around the house and enjoy renovation projects, but between jobs a self storage unit can keep those power tools, ladders, saws and drills away from curious children and, thereby, reduce the risk of possible accidents around the house.
Homes often do not have the storage space to hold large items. For instance, if you have ski boats, canoes or vintage cars, you may not have room for them in your garage or driveway. A self storage unit could give you a place to store such items that provides protection from the weather and some added security. If your garage has slowly filled with things like your exercise equipment, camping supplies, or holiday decorations and you want to reclaim it for your car, a self storage unit may be a perfect solution.
When renting a unit you may be required or at least offered insurance. Insurance will replace your valuables if they are stolen or damaged while in storage. Self storage insurance may be cheaper than homeowner’s or renter’s insurance.
