It's a Date

Food, makeup and other items have expiration dates for a reason and they're generally not a "soft" suggestion or up to debate. When in doubt, throw it out.

Jewelry Heist

If your jewelry was once gold and is now silver, let it go. Unless you're into the pirate look, keeping one earring in hopes of finding its "mate" is a work in futility. Clear the madness!!

Closet Cleanser

Would you purposely buy the wrong size in your clothes? Probably not. Then why hang on to the "dream" and "reminder" sizes in your closet? Rid yourself of clothes that are either too small or too big. Who wants to face those reminders every morning?

Do It Now!!

You can spend your energy avoiding a task or completing it. It's the same energy, but one is more beneficial than the other, so why not reap the benefits?

Clutter and disorganization are generally less about the "stuff" in your house, than the "stuff" in your life. Either way, for improvement, you should deal with both.

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!!
