My passion is to use my organizing and project management skills to better others’ lives. I provide fresh, client-focused organizing and space-planning solutions to help clear clutter and chaos and bring a fresh perspective of peace and calm to my clients and their living spaces.
Friends have joked with me most of my life about being overly organized. I can organize your pantry, closet, playroom, garage or any room in your home. Most of us lack the time to focus on these areas due to the daily grind, raising children, or simply wanting to spend our time doing other things. I can help!
When my mother made the difficult decision to sell her home and move into an assisted living apartment, helping her decide which treasures to keep or more realistically, which items she would actually have room for in her new apartment was difficult. It was during this time I created a process to help guide her decision making by creating a nurturing environment while efficiently cleaning, sorting, and organizing her home to be put on the market. Most people are unsure where to begin or what our parents truly need with this lifestyle change. I can help!
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 mental health disorders such as Hoarding Disorder.
I facilitate a monthly hoarding behavior support group in Tucson, called Excess Denied, on the third Friday of every month at 7pm. (Email ExcessDeniedTucson@gmail.com if you’re interested in attending.)
I also host a twice-monthly therapeutic art group at my studio, where my clients can create and congregate, learning art and socializing in a nurturing and clutter-free environment.
My experience as a professional organizer, school teacher, wife, mother, and a member of the human race, I’ve experienced the challenges of living a ClutterFree life.
I pride myself on being a good listener, connecting with people, and being flexible. The most important outcome for me is that your project goals are achieved, and that you have the tools to lead a happier organized life.
I hold a BA in Psychology, and a minor in Education from Occidental College.
Bookkeeping, financial files
Cynthia Peden is the high-energy, hands-on aspect of c l e a r i n g s ™. Not afraid to dig in and get her hands dirty, Cynthia manages to turn chaos into calm with understanding, respect for possessions, and a superior ability to delegate responsibilities to the people best suited to the task at hand. From dealing with hoarder’s homes and returning the property to a state of peace and tranquility and healthy environment for the occupants, to downsizing estates and parental homes for estate sales, distribution, and ultimate property sale, Cynthia’s organizing skills are always in play.
Cynthia’s background in event coordination, administration, and consulting give her the insight and skills necessary to effectively manage estates and business dissolutions. Her experience with crime scene clean-up and murder victim grief help her understand both the loss and confusion following the death of loved ones. She treats the property and possessions of clients as though they are the treasures they were to the loved one. With caring and compassion, Cynthia sorts through the chaos, organizes the contents, and presents the families with manageable options – estate sales, property sales, and distribution of the bequeathed possessions.
Her bookkeeping and administrative experience are always helpful in piecing together the financial lives of loved ones or, the case of business dissolution, condensing large amounts of financial information into workable units to assist in appraising the business.
As a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) since 1996, and having earned NAPO’s Golden Circle designation in 2003, Cynthia’s organizational skills, both professionally and personally, ensure each client goes from chaos to calm on time and on budget.
