Livable spaces™

Thank you for reaching out and seeking a professional organizer-sometimes this is not an easy step.

My inspiration for organizing stems from my love to help people. It’s an amazing feeling to start organizing with people who are feeling anxious, and watch as they transform throughout our time together. 

Organizing for me is more about building relationships than organizing "stuff". Our business builds valuable connections by listening. We listen to what you’re saying and what you’re not saying. To that end, we use an integrative approach and understand that our role is not only to organize your stuff but how organizing your ‘stuff’ can transform your entire life.

We call this SHiFT™.

A client said, “When you come to my house, what you are doing is learning my tastes, attitudes, and feelings about things, which informs you, so you know how to talk me out of keeping ‘I don’t know’ items, or to accept that I want to keep them. You listen and accept my decisions even on questionable items, or will talk me out of some things by using my criteria. You know when to change my area of focus when I get bogged down on making decisions.” As you can see, there has been a SHiFT™ in my client’s perspective, because we address the whole person, not just the stuff.

Through this ongoing practice, we approach organizing from all angles, bringing into being a more balanced life. You’ll learn new practical skills, become more self-aware, learn new positive habits, and with continued practice---you'll feel hopeful and fulfilled.



SHiFT™ evolves over time through intentional collaboration, addressing issues of self-worth, health, time management and other key areas that are related to chronic disorganization. The benefits of this method are profound. 

I wear many hats, including project manager!

Sometimes disorganization and/or hoarding creates the need for a home remodel. In these situations, I'm able to step in as project manager overseeing the planning, design, and construction of remodel projects, from beginning to end. Of course, it really helps to have my husband, Marc, on my team as a retired General Contractor of over 40 years to assist me!


Tara is super-efficient, has a warm personality, is very patient, and she is a dream to work with! Since a teen, she has loved to organize, clean, decorate and rearrange household furniture for maximum ascetics, functionality, and enjoyment---turning your house into a warm home.

Oh, and if you’re moving, she loves to pack and unpack your things in your new “forever home”. We can’t wait for you to organize with Tara!

MEET Marc, Jen's Husband.

Marc is our Donation & Distribution Specialist. 

Our goal with every Livable Spaces project is to keep as much as possible out of the landfills, and Marc is the guy that makes this happen!

He works with various donation organizations including:

  • Urban Compassion Project 
  • Friend’s of the Library, and
  • East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse

By partnering with these non-profits (and many more), we're able to serve our clients, and the community at large.

Fun fact...Marc “decided" to step into this role because Jen forced him to ;) Just kidding! Marc saw that Jen needed lots of help as her business expanded and wanted to help bring her vision of community support to life. 

He is a semi-retired general contractor and has been invaluable to the Livable Spaces team, and in supporting his wife’s passion to transform lives.
