Declutter Your HomeAwaken Your Soul
Hi, I’m Michael!
Holistic declutter coach, podcaster, and creator of the Purification method of home decluttering & downsizing
I help soulful, sensitive, sentimental people finally declutter their homes and create space for what truly matters most.
I’m so glad you’re here.
For many people (and especially sensitive, sentimental people), decluttering and downsizing can be a truly challenging process. You try to get started with the best of intentions, just to get stopped in your tracks. The volume of stuff… the memories and nostalgia… the seemingly unending decisions… It simply feels like too much.
Overwhelm, stuckness, and confusion take over while the piles and boxes – and sometimes an entire home of stuff – remain.
And yet the longer it takes to get started, the longer it takes to move forward with the next chapter of your life.
Whether you’ve been wanting to declutter or downsize for months, years, or decades, you are not alone. Many folks just like you have struggled to get started. Like you, they needed a new approach!
A Fresh Approach
Traditional approaches to home decluttering address the nuts and bolts of the process, but as a person who feels things deeply and has strong connections to your things and your past, this will never be enough.
Maybe you have even tried to identify the belongings that ‘spark joy’ only to be left more confused and stuck than ever.
The Purification method blends together the best of the traditional approaches (effective planning, logistics, and strategies) with holistic approaches to support your whole self throughout the process.

During this 80-minute phone or Zoom call, I provide a safe, sacred space to explore – and help you break through – whatever has been holding you back from finally starting to declutter. You may be feeling overwhelmed, confused, or afraid… and that’s okay (and totally normal).
We’ll work together to explore your resistance and hesitations, discover your goals and intentions, and create a clear plan for getting started on your Purification journey.

It’s just been amazing. The more you clear things out physically, you feel the energetic release on so many other different levels. Thank you for reminding me how important it is to purify our living space.
Michael is so well-suited for this role. Her kindness, passion and patience, coupled with her background in counseling and therapy, provide the perfect combination of support and expertise. I wouldn’t trust anyone else to work with me through this process.
It’s helped to go through the mental and emotional process of being able to get rid of the material things that have already served their purpose here. Being able to unload those old attachments to things can be life-changing, life-shifting.
