My continuing education and vast experience working individually with clients that have hoarding behavior disorder, clutter challenges and providing training to city health officials, non-profit agencies, foster agencies, etc. encouraged me to become a BIT Facilitator to provide you with a plan to gain control over your hoarding problems, whether they are mild or severe.
I’m looking forward to working with you and saving you a “front row seat!”
"She helped me tailor my sorting sessions to 15 minutes from my overwhelming hour I had assigned myself and was not accomplishing much but frustration. She helped me and my husband with our “expectations” since I have a perfectionistic, overachiever mentality 90% of the time. Tammy is thoughtful about the needs of her clients and goes above and beyond to empower her clients to take charge of their organizing needs."

“I've worked with Tammy for the past two years as co-coordinators of a Christmas event in our community. Tammy was ‘super-woman’ when it came to planning and organizing the event. She's an expert in establishing goals, making to-do lists, recruiting volunteers, and coordinating all efficiently to get the job done! It's a joy to work with someone so knowledgeable in her field. She made me look good as her co-chair—and the event was a home run!”

“Thanks, Tammy!! I have been using your 15 minute procedure. It has really helped so much... I am gearing up to work in my office today...and have gotten 4 totes for my 4 areas to distribute my "things"... Hope the giveaway pile is huge.. I donate to The Arc of the MOV, Noah's Arc Thrift Stores. You have inspired me so much after being at the United Way meeting last month.”
