Never Satisfied

Do you find that you bore easily or feel the need for new challenges on a regular basis? Is there anything wrong with that? I think not. Always strive to avoid stagnation by never being satisfied with the ordinary.

Good Friends

A good friend has two ears for listening; a mouth for giving comforting words; and a shoulder for you, if needed-no waiting.

The Gift

Give the gift of a smile-they're free, but you get such a huge return from such a small investment!!

Not My Problem

Bewildered? Maybe. Baffled? Possibly. But bothered? Not!! If you've not done anything wrong and another person holds a grudge, please don't let it guide your day, night, thoughts, or life. It takes a great deal of energy and is often not worth the trouble.

No "Do-Overs"

Apologies can always be given, but words can never be "unsaid" and taken back, so watch carefully what you allow to come from your heart, through your mouth.

Challenge yourself to attempt a task you've been avoiding and then share with me your success (or successful failure, if that's the case).

Adult Peer Pressure?

We consider peer pressure a childhood problem, but how many of you adults cave into it on a regular basis?

Don't find time-it's not lost. Don't make time-it's already created. We use time-wisely or not.

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!!
