WHAT OTHERS SAY:
Shera has organized 2 homes for me: a 2 story condo and more recently , a gorgeous 3 bedroom Eichler that I bought. At the condo, she helped me organize my office, set up systems for paper and files, organize my chocolate making business, a family room, closets, kitchen cupboards and finally the attic. She is extremely talented with space organization, fast and intuitive. It was especially fun working with her again in my new home. She knew my habits, my items, my tastes. We tackled 3 bedrooms, the living and dining areas and finally garage. I am so grateful to now have a functional office and guest room and ample space to host gatherings. Thank you Shera! ~S.M, Nurse, San Francisco, CA.
Approaching retirement, I wanted to clear my space, so that I could enjoy my home especially when I am not working. In just 5 weekly sessions, Shera transformed every room of my home; kitchen, living room, bedrooms,home office, drawers and closets and my storage areas. I now can see what's in my kitchen cabinets , bedroom drawers, and I have plenty of clutter free surfaces throughout my home. The storage area is well labeled and everything is very accessible. Shera is smart, fast,efficient, compassionate and has brilliant ideas for creating organized and attractive spaces. Mary B, Psychologist, Pt Richmond, CA
You make this so much fun! B.B., Attorney, City Council, Board of Trustees, Novato, CA
I hired Shera upon recommendation of my girlfriend. I raised two boys in this home as a single father after my former wife passed away. It was finally time for some serious re-organization. In just six sessions, Shera completely transformed my home. She reorganized my closet, so that I could actually find what I was looking for and helped decide what to keep and what to let go of. What used to be a cluttered guest room used mostly for storage, became an organized and functional office I now have a kitchen and dining area where I once again entertain and a den that no longer looks like a man cave. Most importantly, I now have a special area where I designated solely to playing my guitar. My girlfriend (now fiance) has since moved in. I couldn't be happier. Shera truly is an alchemist, fast, smart and very easy to work with. I trust her 100%. Bob J. , Scientist, San Mateo, CA.
Shera’s support was invaluable as we transformed my mother’s 60 year professional legacy and family home into a rental. We combed through decades of life and energy. My sister and I could not have done this nearly as fast without her experience and wisdom to guide us gently through the process while keeping us on track and moving forward. Being able to quickly discern how to separate stuff with sentimental value, from items with real value, from stuff that is ultimately garbage, and then know how and where to dispose of them saved us months of stress and dollars. It was a real pleasure working with you! Lance & Alicia Freeman, Castro Valley, CA
I'm a single mother of two young children. As a career woman, having recently gone through a divorce, I was feeling overwhelmed with keeping order in my home and my life. Shera's wisdom and coaching helped me find more peace in my life. And she created systems that were much needed: in the kitchen, in the living room and kid's play room, in my bedroom and office. She did an excellent job training our nanny on maintaining the systems. Everything now has a place, and I feel so much more ease. Thank you Shera!

I've been working with Shera for over a year. She has completely transformed our home, starting with my home office systems, then kitchen pantry ,cabinets, family rooms, closets, storage rooms, our 3-car garage, pool house, and finally the last frontier, my husband's office! She offers so much more than organizing. Her professional experience and life wisdom has helped our family with business, career, and personal decisions. We consider Shera part of our family. We LOVE her, and highly recommend her to anyone seeking clarity, order, and joy in their lives! ~Karen K. Mom, Artist, Activist, Mill Valley, CA
I've been working with Shera for the past 6 months in my office, garage, guest room, closets, garden shed, and more. As someone who loves saving resources (papers, magazines, music, supplies-in the event I might need it someday), Shera worked very patiently and non-judgmentally with me in helping me see limiting patterns. She guided me through a very powerful ritual that helped me let go of so much I had been storing in a very full and messy garage, closets, drawers and cabinets. In one day, we cleared 20+ years of "baggage" from past businesses, collections, and relationships from my garage. Shera has great energy; she is fast, easy, patient, and fun to work with. Nothing seems daunting for her. She offers very creative tips and great "homework" exercises for helping keep me organized. Her follow-up coaching sessions and action plans were superb in keeping me on track especially with the office systems. I’d highly recommend her for any organizing project you might have! She is simply fantastic! ~LH, Business Owner, San Anselmo, CA
I called on Shera to do one of the most difficult tasks I have ever faced in my life: to clear out my family home, the home I grew up in, after having to transfer my mother into an assisted living facility. We worked together for 5+ months, going through our family's history, archives, photos, and so much more. There were so many times when it was hard for my sister and I to decide what to do with items. With Shera's resources, we sold some larger items and were able to donate thousands of dollars of items to local causes. Our family home is now ready to be placed on the rental market. Shera' knowledge of real estate and property management has also been very valuable in helping us determine the best way to position the home on the market. Her consulting has been a gift! Lance F, Producer, Oakland, CA
I am an inventor, chiropractor, writer, and author with a very successful practice and full life. Shera did for me what I had been trying to accomplish for 2 years. An efficient, organized file system and office where I can find anything in seconds. Next we're working on other rooms in my home. She is fun to work with-fast, intuitive, and very bright. ~Dr. R.H. , Richmond, CA
Shera helped me begin to "heal" a 30-year clutter problem that escalated after my partner died. I couldn' get myself to do anything, and after almost a year, still had all his things in my space as if he were still living there. She understood my grief. She carefully helped me sort through his items and our life together. I worked with Shera for over 6 months and after each session, she provided me with a written action plan and next steps. She added some beautiful feng shui touches and I love the artwork she chose for my walls. The look and feel of my home has improved tremendously. I 've let go of a lot of paper, old furniture, and more. My office systems are easy to access and practical. Today, my home has become a sanctuary for me and my creativity. ~ Ruth H. Minister, Counselor, Poet
Shera completely transformed one of the properties I own. She is very creative with a incredible sense of design in re-purposing materials. She is quite knowledgeable of native plants, permaculture, and soil. What used to be a wasteland, is now a beautiful yard and organic garden. Joel E. Richmond Heights, CA
I travel extensively as a film producer and as an advisor/member on multiple international boards. My filing and accounting systems are complex. Shera is a god send. Precise, detail-oriented, calm, grounded, and a true joy to work with. ~Michael B. Tiburon, CA
Shera helped us so much with getting our very small apartment organized so we could function. Before Shera we had a weird set up for our papers, and everything was out of flow. After Shera, the space worked, and she even added her touch of sacred design & color flair. She also used everything we already had on-site but in a much more organized and efficient way. Just having Shera in our space for 2 sessions helped us to continue the energy of purging and organizing within a structure that she helped set up. Thank you Shera for giving us some real quality foundation to continue our living and purging to allow for great new abundance to flow in.
~ Lindsey W. San Rafael, CA

CEO, Tiburon, CA
Thank you Shera! I know I was anxious about having an organizer get down to the nitty-gritty with my "stuff". Somewhere in the process, I trusted you were the right person to open it all up with when you intuitively perceived my unexpressed needs and desires for both creative space and work space. ~Eric W., Media Producer, San Rafael, CA
I am "spatially" challenged. In just 2 visits, Shera helped me "see" how to create functional and sacred space. She encouraged me to let go of all those magazines and newspapers I'd been holding on to for years, allowing me to have a living room where I can now actually do yoga in. She also did a terrific job cleaning my yard, organizing my garage and keeping things out of landfill by donating items to charity, libraries, and recycling centers. ~Kristin H. Richmond, CA
As a bachelor, I was so grateful for Shera's work in my kitchen, closets, and garage. She creates blissful environments in any size space. She is much more than a professional organizer. She has a magical touch which uplifts the spirit. Shera brings a sense of beauty and lightness into one's home that soothes the soul. ~Allen G. Napa, CA
I was in a big life transition when I called on Shera. My mother had recently passed, and I was going through a divorce and had just moved. As a mother of 2 young children, and primary caretaker of my elderly father, I was overwhelmed. Having been through many life transitions herself, Shera was very sensitive to my situation and needs, and did an amazing job of helping me sort through all my mother's belongings, determine what to keep, what to donate, what to sell. She helped me organize my garage and outdoor area in a very short amount of time. I highly recommend her. ~Alicia J. Alameda, CA
I'm a musician, astrologer, and investor. My wife recently passed, leaving me as the executor of estate. In this very emotional time, Shera helped me locate and organize important files I needed, sorted through photos, books, and other boxes and piles and even cleaned! She is very efficient (with four planets in Virgo) and brought a very positive and empathic presence into my home.
~Allan Y. San Rafael, CA
I called on Shera to help with the organization my family home after my brother had passed. She did an amazing (and fast!) job of creating a comfortable room for a live-in caretaker for my mother, sorting through hundreds of books, papers, files , drawers, closets, attic and basement boxes preparing items for sale and donation. She is wonderful to work with, fast, resourceful, and clearly loves providing service to those in transition.~Lori B.,Broker, Gold Canyon, AZ
Things got out of hand, when I inherited my mother 's furniture, and could no longer walk through my living room or find a place to sit. Within four hours, Shera completely cleared the clutter from my living room and entrance and shared with me her functional space formula and sacred space principles. With her coaching, I have since had several successful yard sales and made great money. Yes, I finally let go! ~Maggie D. Oakland, CA
