Christine has cleared an enormous amount
of clutter and waste generated over several years and amplified
by having a flood which required the emptying of packed
closets and shelves. Since I have a disability, Christine
has done 95% of the actual work herself. Getting things
cleared out has inspired me to not bring more in, helping
me to keep newly cleared areas organized.
a big thank you for all you've done. You are really helping
me get my life back under control.
Catherine M, Lynnwood, Washington
I was so overwhelmed. Christine helped remove chaos and
restore order. She helped me discard what was not really
important. The experience was cleansing. Christine did
allow me to keep what I was not ready to get rid of - she
respected my decisions. My kitchen is so organized... we
are keeping to the basic plan and it is working. Christine,
you did a fantastic job.
- Barbara O, Seattle, Washington
Christine gave me really good suggestions, and worked
with me knowing that I felt very overwhelmed. She was very
good at talking me through the hard-to-get-rid-of items,
and [helped] me see a different way of looking at material
items, and that everything really was going to be ok.
was always lending support even after our last session
together. I don’t think I could have made such great
progress in the amount of time that I did, if I had not
had Christine’s services and help. I really appreciate
everything she did for me.
- Merry S, Mill Creek, Washington
were just the person I needed to break the "spell" the
Saturday you were here... I am not stuck any more. It is
like something has been lifted from me. I appreciate your
way of non-judgement and acceptance of where I was, along
with your listening, sharing and working to get part of
my floor cleared of clutter. Right now I am making progress
and the momentum is still here to get this house to where
I want it. Thank you for your help.

What were the benefits you received from working with
A sense of hopefulness, of ease about jobs that otherwise
What part of the process was most effective for you?
Christine’s practical, take-charge attitude. You
just sail in and do what needs to be done, cheerfully cutting
through resistance and confusion.
Are there any lasting changes you have noticed?
I am certainly more respectful of certain spaces in my
house and office, am much more likely to keep them clear
on a regular basis.
- Kay Lynne Sherman, Ashland, Oregon
helped me work through a lot of stuff I was not able
to accomplish by myself – the removal
of stuff that accumulated over the years, causing serious
blocks in the energy flow of our home. Your hands-on
help and sound advice regarding the effects our accumulated
stuff was having on our lives. The changes
we made together really worked - clearing out stuff under
the bed to get a good night’s sleep; removing stuff
that impeded a healthy energy flow. You work wonders
and give me advice that stays with me long after your visit.
Conwright Boyes, Seattle, Washington
are so grateful for everything Your Essential Solutions
accomplished at our home. A garage that was a disorganized
mess of boxes, bags and clutter (painful to have to look
at day after day) is now a pleasant, orderly space. We
didn't think it was possible!
Christine was impeccable in her work and treated our belongings
with such tremendous care that we knew we could trust her
completely. She is so adept at keeping 'the big picture'
in mind while attending to the smallest of details. We
were amazed at her capacity to focus on the task at hand.
In a few days she was able to complete a project that had
eluded us for ages.
Atcitty Family, Sandia Park, New Mexico
gained the ability to see clearing clutter as an ongoing
process, one that is manageable & satisfying on many
levels. Christine’s great at keeping a person from
getting overwhelmed by the task at hand.
love your approach to the process, your energy, and your
ability to remain focused & grounded in the midst
of the process. I'm not sure I am ready to call clearing
clutter fun, but you certainly made the hard work enjoyable.
Cavendar, Portland, Oregon
was very insightful and generous with her time. She seemed
to sense what I was going through and her knowledge gave
me tools that I have used on my own. I would definitely
recommend Christine's services. She gives you a sense
of safety and confidentiality.
Ann Hart-Jerdal, Federal Way, Washington
I have to tell you that I am still very EXCITED to have
such a nice, neat office to work in. Every day I go
in there I feel very grateful and thankful. My peace
of mind is so much better already! So, thanks again
for assisting me so skillfully and compassionately with the
study! I will definitely be thinking of you when friends
or clients indicate that they could use your assistance.
Now I can personally vouch for how good you are!
Cohen, Dixon, California
had way too much stuff that I hadn't needed in years. Getting
rid of the things I wasn't using made it easier to find
and use the things I need regularly. Not only are things
where they should be, but Christine helped
me make a
system to KEEP things where they should be. Christine
also was sensitive to the "emotional value" some
things had for me even though they didn't seem to have a
lasting change I have noticed is that I have more time!
Being self-employed, it's easy to be a workaholic. Now
I can take time to do other things in my life that were
always getting pushed aside before. Also, it FEELS so much
better when I'm organized. THANK
Bolin, The Dancin’ DJ, Renton, Washington
Thank you SOOO much for your help walking me through the
process of de-packrat-izing and preparing for my move. You've
given me a lot of valuable suggestions, and I'm beginning
to feel like I can actually make some important changes in
my thinking and actions that will help me take control of
my life and environment. Thanks a lot!
Christine, thanks for your wonderful workshop! I realize
how much clutter I have in my mind, and now I have more compassion
for myself realizing that there are good intentions that
have brought me into the double-bind that keeps me locked
where I'm at with my thoughts, emotions, and the outer clutter
that reflects them. What a beautiful light you have,
I felt that everyone in the workshop experienced a real healing!
Christine walks into a room and knows what needs to be done
to transform any space into one of beauty and function. She
is present, clear, and has a gifted eye for detail and spatial
relations and is so fun to work with.
Sophia, Talent, Oregon
Christine helped set the foundation to create a calm and
organized environment in our retail store. She is great at
focusing on the problem areas and making changes that bring
a new alignment that better reflects the intention of our
store. Our employees function with greater ease and our customers
benefit on so many levels. Her assistance has saved me much
time and energy!
D’Arcy, Healing Waters & Sacred Spaces, Portland,
I've worked with Christine professionally since 1995 and
it never ceases to amaze me how she can make order out of
chaos. She is able to bring clarity to the murkiest tasks
on many levels, not only the physical organization of jumbles
of stuff, although she is certainly excellent at that! I
think it is a visionary quality that enables her to see what
optimally 'could be' and that directs her actions until the
vision of perfection is made into form.
loved Christine’s work! It helped soooo much. It
cleared out the last emotional energy that was keeping things
stuck in the "things are not going well in this house" pattern.
I have been energetically and happily having an organizational
extravaganza ever since. Thank you so much.
felt Christine’s method and approach were great,
with just enough direction, just enough patience, and emotional
support when I would max out. The perfect loving presence – with
no psycho-babble when I finally broke down and cried with
the stress of moving that last heavy cloud of emotion in
the clutter corner of my kitchen. Bravo, Christine, you have
found a much needed gift to offer!
