Luggage Tales

Here's the story. When I pack, I put all of the zippers in a certain position on my luggage for ease of access and so that I can tell at a glance if my bags have been opened. No, that's not obsessive-it's my method. Okay, to some it might seem obsessive, but it works for me. Back to the story. On my last trip, as my bags slowly wound around the conveyor belt, I noticed that my zippers were "out of place". When I got home, I found a nice placard from the TSA-Notice of Baggage Inspection. My unmentionables had been violated!! What had they seen? What had they said about what they'd seen? What had they touched? Egad!! The placard stated that the contents may have been searched and returned to your bag. Really?? I'm sure that was a feat of modern science and technology. My bags are packed with such precision and order; akin to putting together one of those 2000 piece jigsaw puzzles, that I feel the need to apologize to the poor agent upon whose shoulders this task fell.

About Me

My photo
Washington, DC, United States
I am Dr. Darnita L. Payden, Executive Director/Owner of Dr. DClutter™ Life Management, a division of PreciousOnes™ LLC. I have a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology and over 20 years of experience working to help clients discover their strengths and talents. Having worked as a therapist, college professor, grief specialist and trainer, I have encountered in my journey many of the issues my clients may face. I have a sincere desire to help you find clarity, organization and independence in your life and environments. I know that life can be hectic, but I desire to help my clients bring as much order, peace and enjoyment back into their lives as is possible. What separates me from the norm? I focus on the client from a holistic perspective. I realize that most people desire a functional and an organized life, but may simply need support, understanding and information about why they have the habits or tendencies that have led to disorganization. I do not perform “quick fixes” or provide “one-size-fits-all” guidance, but I strive to provide strategies to my clients that will be life changing and useful for a lifetime. Dr. DClutter™ is a name well earned!!
