OUR STORY

JESSICA WATERS, ORGANIZER AND FOUNDER OF IN PERFECT ORDER

I officially began my organizing business on Whidbey Island in Washington in 1997, long before people knew what an organizer did, but I had actually been decluttering for friends and family for most of my life. On a cross-country odyssey in my twenties, I remember asking the various friends I was visiting if I could rearrange their closets and cabinets, and relished the joy they experienced as a result. I never forgot that feeling, and several years later, I turned my passion into a full-time business creating order from chaos.

I still carry that tireless sense of adventure and enthusiasm, so your home or office gets a full-blown infusion of harmony and order every time.

After several years of working one appointment at a time with people in their homes and offices, people began asking me for a more intensive way to declutter their entire home in a short period of time. Since 2008, I have had the honor of flying all over the country to assist people in a three to six day VIP Intensive.

EXPERIENCE

My experience closely assisting the three top caterers on Martha’s Vineyard in the 1980’s, as well as setting up office systems and coordinating workshops for several prominent seminar leaders on Whidbey Island in Washington in the 1990’s, helped me strengthen my ability to work closely with people on involved and often long-term projects.

In 1986, I was instrumental in the Loma Prieta Earthquake relief effort at the Oakland Red Cross. Within a few hours of arriving as a volunteer, I set up a procurement and distribution system to accommodate four emergency relief shelters throughout the East Bay. I was invited to join the Red Cross team by the Executive Director after only three days. This experience ignited my passion for helping out at disaster sites and years later, I helped establish a pop-up soup kitchen in a park near the 9th Ward in New Orleans a few months after Hurricane Katrina struck. We fed hundreds of returning residents and provided a safe place to connect with neighbors and discharge some of the emotional trauma that most people had experienced.

Once I moved to the L.A. area in the summer of 2000, I began honing my intuition so as to better read how people relate to their physical environment, and since then have become an expert on helping people let go of their “stuff” on all levels. I do this by an innovative healing process I call “Radical Release”, an integral part of Deep Decluttering,  uncovering the layers of emotional clutter that is often hidden beneath the ‘stuff’ and allowing energy to flow in our environment in a way that enlivens us.

“Jessica has the magic touch. After she vaporized my clutter and empowered me to stop creating it for good, we got to the real gold underneath. She’s truly gifted and highly skilled at tackling the intangible disarray that was blocking my business. Jessica works at the deepest level, with energy at the source of physical reality. She worked quickly yet gently to unclutter my thinking and business focus: clarifying sensible choices about what to do and how to grow. Now I can easily focus on what makes me jazzed about being in business, and make sure I’m using my time wisely and profitably. She’s way better than perfect!!” ~D.C., graphic design and branding expert, Encino, CA

What this means for you is that you get an easygoing, energetic friend in your home, someone who can sit on the floor, make you laugh when you need a boost and who can be there when you cry. Some who can help you see the whole picture and who knows how to get under the radar of your resistance, no matter how overwhelming it may seem.

DEEP DECLUTTERING™

Working with hundreds of people in their homes and offices for close to two decades, I have gained a continuously deeper understanding of how to help people ‘get organized’. [I put that in quotes because the process and the result is so different for each person.] By turning conventional organizing wisdom on its head and focusing on the release of internal clutter first, the results my clients see are both radical and lasting. Most people think that our environment affects our mindset, and to a degree, this is true. I have found, however, that once people locate the emotional turbulence that is at the root of their clutter and let go of these draining thoughts and beliefs, the actual act of organizing is a snap. I call the process Deep Decluttering, because we attend to the problem at its root, so it doesn’t come back.

This deeply healing process and the phenomenal results are what my clients rave about: together, we will tear your world apart and then lovingly, consciously put it back together so that it is reflective of where you are today and where you want to go from here. We let go of the weight of the past to make room for the light of the future.

Starting from the inside allows for the release of items, people and commitments that drain energy and constantly distract from one’s true purpose, be it personal or professional. We’ll create efficient systems based on the unique way you process information, with the result being that your outer landscape will support your present delight and forward motion with ease.

If you are like most people, when you pick up the phone to schedule an appointment with us, it’s because you are finally ready to look into your life in a deeper way and begin letting go of the items and commitments that no longer serve you. The journey from chaos to order is a powerful, transformative and truly a spiritual undertaking.

In Deep Decluttering, it is my job to stand as respectful and supportive witness for this process. Emotional clutter has been keeping you from enjoying the creativity and freedom that you may have been yearning for, often without realizing exactly what it is.

I am not a therapist, but the work we do together is therapeutic in nature, and it is not uncommon for you to experience emotional discomfort before, during or after our work. Not only is this normal, but in my opinion, it is a sign that the energy is moving and change is happening. It is an exciting and exhilarating feeling.

Together we will recognize and improve on successful techniques that are already in place in your life, identify those routines and systems that are hindering your productivity, and redirect the ineffective behavior to a more efficient way of working and being creative. I call this the “lazy person’s” way to organize, because if you are like most of us, you probably have unrealistic expectations of yourself and suffer from “perfection paralysis”: I can’t do something unless I do it perfectly, so I just won’t do it at all!

Working together, we are going to find the ways to set up your life so that it works for YOU. That is key, because if there is one complaint I have heard repeatedly over the years it is that a well-meaning friend, or other organizer has set up a system that may work well for them, but that does not work for the person it was created for!

Deep Decluttering rocks.

I made the life changing discovery that the clutter and chaos around my house and office at work are symptoms of the emotional and mental clutter between my ears. Sitting down to discover what was the cause of those emotions and then dealing with them was truly life changing. I had feelings of bitterness, anger, hurt, abandonment, failure, unworthiness, rebellion and pain clogging my life and my surroundings. Getting through the emotional hurdle allowed me to have the strength to want to do something about my surroundings. My counters are now once again clutter free and my bedroom feels comforting and restful instead of a place of shame and guilt.” Sara Blackburn, Operations Manager

STRENGTHS

My greatest organizing strength (and that of everyone on my carefully selected team) is the ability to be fully present for you, to get under the radar of your resistance, and to assist you in the process of letting go. We can’t “make” you let go, nor would we want to! What we do is help you identify what works for you and what no longer serves. We do this by sensing your individual work style, and helping create systems that are repeatable after we leave, teaching you to recognize the warning signs before they take hold, in order to prevent future chaos from coming back into your life. Many clients enjoy semi-annual or annual follow up visits to tweak their systems or to just get back on track.

My team and I enjoy the comfortable, playful and efficient relationship we have with our clients, and our clients love how we are practiced in staying focused and “on task” while having a good time. I know that my favorite part of the visit is when I am leaving and my clients hug me in relief and gratitude for the work we have done!

At this time, I work primarily one-on-one with the most highly motivated clients who want to go deep into their personal process and who are interested in examining and de-cluttering every nook and cranny of their life. I do this by phone coaching and/or in an onsite organizing intensive process called the CLARITY VIP Intensive Approach (at home) & the CLARITY VIP Intensive Bootcamp (for business), a process that lasts from 3-6 days, and is available anywhere in the US and Canada.

ESSENTIAL OILS Because so many people have asked me, I now offer the recommendation and use of therapeutic-grade essential oils in my work, which I have found extremely valuable in helping people who are emotionally stuck. If you are interested in a complementary essential oil consultation by phone, please feel free to email me with your phone number and the best time of day to reach you.
