"Several areas of my house were so cluttered that I couldn’t even use them. I was so overwhelmed I didn’t even know where to start. Tara not only worked alongside me to organize my problem areas, she taught me organization skills."
This is not a cookie cutter program. I will work with you to customize your space just as I have done for almost 3 years working in homes with clients.
"Tara is absolutely amazing. She helped me with my kitchen in our old house, then when we moved I was able to use what I learned with her to organize my new kitchen. My life is so much more put together and stress free because everything in our home has a place!
- Lindsay Anderson

Your TEAM Declutter Academy Coach
Since February of 2020, I have had the privilege of helping families reclaim their space. I KNOW firsthand how empowering it is, in particular for women, when they let go of the guilt and shame that has made them feel as if they had to keep something they never wanted to begin with. Decluttering has always been the first priority when I work with my in-home clients and from there organizing what remains in a functional and affordable way! You DO NOT need another "cute basket" to store what you aren't even using anyway.
I created TEAM Declutter Academy as my way of coming to you and serving YOU virtually for six weeks. I desperately want to help those who do not live within our service area and give them the same level of support and encouragement that I give to my in-home clients.
I want to help you make hard decisions about what to keep and what to let go of without any shame or judgment. I am also extremely passionate about teaching you how to set up systems so that you are NOT the one who is the "keeper of all the things", the "knower of where everything is".

Does access to the private Facebook group extend past the course completion dates?
The Facebook group will remain open two weeks after the completion of the course so you can continue to receive support from the other Academy members. I will be active in the group for the first 6-weeks to ensure your decluttering success.
How much time does each online video module take?
We know how busy you are! That’s why each module has a 6-10 minute video that gives you a visual overview of where and how to start on that week's space. Tara has taken her years of experience and transformed it into this program that will leave you feeling empowered, not overwhelmed!

Inside our private student only Facebook Group. Plus, you’ll also get access to all of the pre-recorded episodes in an online library designed exclusively for Academy students.
What if I miss the live in the Facebook Group?
I've got you covered! Replays will always be uploaded and available for you to catch on your own time.
What if my home doesn't have one of the main spaces you will be organizing in the Academy?
I will have you select a different but similar space in your home that is housing the same "type" of clutter we will be purging and organizing. For example, if you don't have a home office you could chose a spare bedroom or storage closet.
