My name is Sarah Grierson-Dale. I have been organizing for people my whole life, but professionally for about 10 years. I started “Ebb and Flow Organizing” officially in January of 2018. My clients' well-being is my first priority, but given the climate we live in, I don’t subscribe to the “throw it all away” approach. I am educated and involved in environmental studies and continue to dedicate myself to the ways in which we can simplify our lives without passing the burden on to others. I run an environmentally friendly business where and when I can.
I am available for various types of cleaning and organizing depending on your needs. My experience includes but is not limited to: preparing a client for a move, setting up the house for a new baby, and clearing out homes after a death in the family. I can help with these and other major life changes as a way to transition into the next phase of life. Whether these changes are due to aging and wanting to refocus attention on the what's to come, a relationship ending or beginning, a remodeling project, a new job, sobriety, a child leaving for college, preparing your space to rent it out, the options are many and I have experience in all of the above.
I have worked all over the world for all kinds of people and in doing this work for myself and others I have learned that there is a tremendous amount of life and energy waiting to come in to help us. When we thoughtfully let go, new energy comes in. My goal is to empower you through this process of stripping down to what is truly needed and wanted, and to practice looking at, and better understanding your relationship to your possessions and how that shapes your life.
Though I am very practically minded and detail oriented, I believe in the alchemy of this work. I have an intuitive process that allows me to see the micro and macro simultaneously, and help my client purge and reorder their space physically and symbolically at the same time. I do my best to use discernment, to be patient, and to communicate clearly and with kindness. I truly enjoy this work and share my enthusiasm with my client, trusting that they can find the fun and freedom in letting go and starting anew.
