Title Optional??

This is a typical conversation between individuals: "What do you do?" "I am a (fill-in-the-blank)." I know that titles seem or are necessary, but wouldn't it be nice not to be pigeonholed into "being" one thing? Wouldn't it be great if you could call yourself whatever you wanted? Well, you can, but it might be met with a look of confusion. But, sadly, for most of us, calling ourselves whatever we want is not the case. We live in a society that requires titles short enough to fit on a business card. If I HAD to choose a title, I would call myself a "Renaissance Specialist" (click here Okay, I made you work for that one and yes, that's the sound of silence (not really because the crickets are making noise, but you get the picture I'm trying to paint here). Although it makes perfect sense to me to call myself a "Renaissance Specialist", to most people it would cause a raised eyebrow. I want to make sure that I'm never forced into a box of "who" I am or what I "do". I wear many hats and possess many talents, and want to represent them all well. So from now on, I'm a "Renaissance Specialist", but to lower your eyebrow, my business card still reads, "Life Management Specialist". Compromising and flexibility are good traits to have, if I do say so myself. What about you?

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!!
