Workshops + Accountability Groups

I love presenting to groups. Large or small, online or (someday again) in person.

I am available to speak on the topics below
but I am also eager to create a presentation with you.
Keep in mind any workshop can be a trial run for
an ongoing affinity group.

Declutter to Delight: Getting Started

This is by far my most requested presentation. Attendees learn important strategies that are specific to their learning styles and goals. Most signifiant is how to start the process, what tools are needed and how to maintain an organized home. The goal is to create a home that nourishes and replenishes you. How will you do that? With compassion, humor and compelling before and after pictures, audiences learn that they are not alone in their struggle with clutter.

Accountability Groups

I’ve been asked to run two accountability groups this summer: Decluttering Paper and Decluttering Intensive. I get how hard this is and I promise you change will come as you interact, learn and support others. Please read more, invite your friends and register for the four-week session here.

I hold a welcoming and positive space as I provide information, accountability, timeline strategies. Most important is that we all establish a No Judgment zone so we can feel safe to do the hard work together.

Previous workshops and groups have included the following topics:
Adult Children of Shoah Survivors
Breast Cancer Thriver Support
Self Care Balance
Freedom FROM and Freedom TO for Women of a Certain Age (60+)
Actualizing a Dream Project
– Decluttering Through the Jewish Calendar

What topic do you have in mind?

Gari, you are very good at striking the balance between delivering your strategies for decluttering with the compassion so needed, especially for this group. I am glad that we will be continuing monthly.

Tammy F., Organizer,
Compassionate Decluttering for Adult Children of SHoah Survivors

Today was a total hit. The women – including this one — really enjoyed your session. Several commented at the end that it was the best part of the day, and several said they had ideas about inviting you to facilitate other events or about calling you for individual coaching. Today was very powerful and helpful. You seemed like a natural at doing this.

Jill Friedman, Esq. – the Law School Outreach Committee, Philadelphia Bar Association

It was so nice to see you on Zoom last night, and to see the large viewer response. Somehow you always seem to strike the right note with listeners. You continue to be one of our most popular presenters.
