"I would recommend Catherine for many different kinds of assistance.  She recently helped me to unpack and organize my whole apartment. She knows how to use space most efficiently and has access to the best containers to hold everything. She also has the best carpenter who built shelves and put in lights for me. Excellent! Her rates are reasonable and she is a tireless worker who gets things done in a hurry. I will definitely rely on her in the future."

5 Stars! 

Home & Garage Organization 

I’m not sure where to begin but after my fist 5 hour session with both Catherine and Kris, I made the decision to cancel a vacation and use the money instead to pay for as many sessions with the Escape Your Chaos team as possible as their miracle work transforming my entire home is giving me the peace and calm I’ve so desperately needed! More than any vacation could! So far I have had 4 sessions with the team over the course of a week and 1/2 and it feels like I’ve experienced a miracle. So there’s that. I consider myself to be pretty organized, I am clean, have a beautiful space and run an air bnb business out of my home called Sanctuary in the City. Some people say I have a gift with design. I found myself stuck, however, with a home and garage full of family history, art, memorabilia, stuff, photos, paintings, .....and a house full of emotional items from my deceased mom and brother. And kitty. And ex boyfriends... causing a major blockage in my ability to live with freedom and joy. I hadn’t seen my garage floor in 2 years and my bedroom and kitchen areas were a mess! So I called Escape Your Chaos thinking I just needed one 4 hour work session with the team.. I was very apprehensive at first about having people go through my personal things and home.and tell me what to Toss, what to keep, etc. while redecorating! it’s certainly a vulnerable position to be in and I wondered if it would be worth the investment. Enter Escape Your Chaos! So far this capable and caring team has helped me completely transform my small garage with a brilliant storage system just using shelves and labeled bins. They told me in advance what to order so it was ready. We worked as a team throughout the whole process. I had to go through tubs and tubs of emotional memorabilia and memories of my moms life. And let a lot of it go. Catherine listened to stories about my mom. Let me take videos and digital photos and poof had Kris compassionately remove the items or place them in tubs that I could easily identify and deal with! And there were a lot of things. I cried a lot. And she knew when I wasn’t ready to let go of something. It was the same with my deceased brothers items. We spent another session creating an office system for me. She helped organize all of my documents and created a working portable filing office system that I will use for the rest of my life. The team hung mirrors and art with detailed precision and care. Placed large rugs and calmly decluttered everything in my kitchen and home while doing other tasks. Furniture was moved and placed. The best way to describe the way they work would be art in motion. They worked tirelessly not stopping to eat... after a while I learned to just trust their process. Get out of their way.. and make sure they were drinking water. They redesigned my bedroom using current art, moving furniture around adding things in and brilliantly placing meaningful objects. They followed my ideas and goals for the space. They honored precious keepsakes and gave me choices during the whirlwind transformation process. I’ve lived in my home for 20 years and have never seen my bedroom look so beautiful... and I didn’t buy a thing! Moving forward I now will use what I have learned to continue this decluttering and design process on my own with joy and confidence. And Escape Your Chaos will be my permanent go to team. The biggest gift you could do for yourself.. or someone else would be to hire them for a 4 hour session. Hire both of them. And let them do their magic together. Catherine and Kris each have their own unique skills and when combined can do in a few hours what might take someone like me a lifetime to accomplish. Stop what you’re doing and schedule an appointment. Tell them Brenda sent you.

"I could thread a string of silken words around the world in praise of Catherine's personal assistance work. She is surprisingly competent, prompt, full of good ideas and fearless when tackling tough jobs. Plus, she is trustworthy as the day is long and dang nice, to boot. I highly recommend her services. Truly "

"It was a delight to discover Catherine as a personal assistant, professional organizer, and decorator.  Catherine is attentive, courteous, honest and very sharp.  She is an absolute professional in every sense who provides a variety of services to your complete satisfaction.  I found it particularly helpful that Catherine has a network of professionals she can call upon to handle just about any task.  She engaged an electrician, painter, and a handyman to complete some work for me.  The work quality was very high and Catherine handled everything. I was very pleased and won't hesitate to engage her again. Very highly recommended!"

~ T. Tigner Lake Oswego, OR

"Catherine helped me clean out and organize a guest bedroom.  She is great. We went to work right away and organized a closet and then worked our way around the room.  It is a great relief to have this done. Catherine is a dream as a professional organizer. I would not hesitate to hire her again." 

~ S. Lingenfelter  Glendora, CA

"Thanks for all you have done. It has been such a blessing to have a more orderly and "homey" home. You are awesome Catherine. God Bless you and your awesome business!
