Hotter than July

Hindered by the heat?? Held hostage by the humidity?? This is a great time to tackle some of those indoor items on your "To-Do" list. No excuse-it's just too hot to be outdoors. Be productive!!

My Passion

I love what I do because it's my passion. I get to make the rules because I'm the boss. I work when I want and with those I chose (or not). I get to make a difference and that feels great!! What's stopping you from following your passion? Money?? Fear?? Others??

Take Back

If you were to put your problems in a box along with others, you'd see yours might not be as bad, and probably want to take yours back.

Toot Your Own Horn!!

It's no secret-I love myself and treat myself well. No one will ever toot your horn like you can. So even when there's no one around to tell you how wonderfully, marvelous and extraordinary you are, look in the mirror and do it for yourself.

Are you an enabler? What behaviors do you exhibit (or allow in others) that you may think are helpful, but are really allowing another to benefit from your grace in a negative way?

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!!
