Someone does not have to be a therapist to be therapeutic.
Trauma Informed Care means I can acknowledge and understand when clutter and disorganization may be rooted in trauma and ensure we navigate the process in a safe and healthy way. There are many experiences and events that may lead to trauma; injury, illness, loss of a loved one, history of poverty or divorce, to name a few. My goal is to make sure you feel supported and cared for through every step of decluttering and organizing your home.
How I implement the 6 Principles of Trauma Informed Care:
- Safety: I foster an environment where you feel physically and psychologically safe.
- Trustworthiness & Transparency: My goal is to build and maintain your trust.
- Peer Support: As a trauma survivor and mental health advocate I openly empathize.
- Collaboration: My focus is on creating a balanced partnership and meaningful relationship.
- Empowerment: You are fully supported in your decision making, choice, and goal setting.
- Cultural, Historical, Gender: I’m actively opposed to cultural stereotypes and biases (e.g., based on race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, etc.) and am responsive to racial, ethnic, and cultural needs.
