A degree in psychology and ongoing study in neuroscience peaked Megan’s curiosity about how our brains work. It’s unhealthy to have nagging critical thoughts: “I’m so disorganized, I’m embarrassed by my mess, I’m such a bad person for letting things get to this point”. Whether or not we believe these words, our subconscious mind does. It is fascinating how few people want to work on organizing their own spaces unless they have help. That is normal...our prefrontal cortex shuts down when we become overwhelmed or stressed. Deciding where to start can be paralyzing. Megan believes when your life is simplified, you can enjoy the small moments. She has a passion for problem-solving; organizing projects big and small and working with families to see their homes and lives transformed. Meg will share tips to help you feel at ease in your own home with organizing solutions that are functional and beautiful.
