Household Management/Disorganization for Healthy Living Transition
Home, Kitchen, & Closet Organization
In-Person and Virtual Household Management Coaching for New Stay at Home Parents Who Feel Overwhelm With Their Decision to Become A Full Time Home Manager.
Becoming a new stay at home mom/parent, trucker wife, or new caregiver to a family member with cancer, MS, or other illness or autoimmune diseases can be an amazing selfless experience but it can also be a challenging time in one’s life. Not only are you trying to manage your own life but you are sacrificing much of your time to help someone else manage their life. This can be very challenging when you are trying to achieve your own personal and professional goals as a individual and manage a household.
Living life as a trucker wife is very unconventional. The trucking industry is a 24 hour busy and unpredictable field that cause many families to separate. The trucking lifestyle is not for everyone. Only the strong survive! Unfortunately, with lack of knowledge and support many women can feel overwhelmed by their role as trucker wife. As a trucker wife ALL household responsibilities inside and outside, parenting and including running errands for your husband and his business if he has his own authority falls on you. Not to mention your own career/business and personal self care needs.
Many new stay at home parents and trucker wives struggle to manage their homes and make a life for themselves while their husband work as over-the-road commercial truck drivers. When I was younger our family had to come together to help care for my aunt who had MS. I saw first hand how hard it was for my uncle to balance his federal prison career, raise two children, manage the household and be a caregiver for his sick wife. Without a good support system or help life can become very stressful and challenging. Today in my own life of being a trucker wife, mom of four, business owner, trying my best to manage our own household, a long distance marriage, the kids busy schedule, running a private practice, my health, mental and emotional well being and trying to support my own mother who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer has its own challenges and stress, so I understand what you are going through.
As you try to cope, adjust and manage the lessons, challenges, and choices of your life transition I can help bring clarity and balance to your fears. When your environment isn’t ideal, your mind and body will be able to tell. Clutter can put unnecessary stress into your life and muddy your thought process. With some coaching in household management and organizing, you can start to live the clutter-free life you deserve. A fresh environment can help you see things in a brand new way and finally lead you to a healthy mind, body and home. Lets us help you by scheduling a appointment today so we can help bring order to the chaos in your life and home.

If you’re looking for help with chronic clutter or the more serious organization problems resulting from depression, Attention Deficit Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, dysfunctional eating, or stress management needs you’ve come to the right place. Nikki has special training from working in the mental health field and years of experience with—working with people who need gentle, patient help to put their lives in order.
What are some causes of chronic or challenging disorganization?
• The most common cause of organization problems is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)/Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). You might have heard that term applied to school-aged children, but adults also suffer from this neurological disorder that leads to impulsive actions, hyperactivity, and the inability to pay attention.The National Institute of Mental Health (website links to http://www.nimh.nih.gov/health/topics/attention-deficit-hyperactivity-disorder-adhd/index.shtml) says that adults with ADHD may have trouble getting organized and sticking to a task. Daily tasks like keeping appointments, attending to paperwork, getting to work on time, and being productive at work and at home can be a challenge for adults with ADHD or ADD.
• Chronic pain can be another cause of chronic disorganization. It’s hard to plan your day, do your errands, clean your house, and check off items from your to-do list when your body hurts all the time. If you suffer from arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, or experience chronic pain from another cause, it could play a part in your disorganization.
• Depression is another condition that can lead to disorganization. It’s hard to stay motivated and organized if you feel hopeless and exhausted most of the time. Sometimes it’s all you can do to get out of bed, let alone organize your kitchen or keep up with a busy work schedule.
• A traumatic brain injury can also lead to chronic disorganization. Even a mild concussion can lead to problems organizing your time and activities.
• Other causes of chronic disorganization include short-term memory loss, the beginning stages of Alzheimer’s disease, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
How do I know if I have problems with dysfunctional eating, chronic disorganization, or have stress management needs?
You have a problem if you:
1. Are surrounded by piles of mail, catalogs, paperwork, bills, newspaper, grocery products, packages, can goods and can't seem to sort through them, discard them, or put them away.
2. Have duplicate of food items, or have to walk around bags or boxes of things you purchased over weeks and months but haven't yet put away in your pantry or kitchen cabinets.
3. Are getting worse and worse with your disorganization and chaos.
4. Seek to meal plan or prep meals but continually try organization systems but don't stick with anything for very long.
5. Are always eating unhealthy because you can't focus on meal planning, researching healthy recipes, or meal prepping.
6. Always choosing fast food or unhealthy foods because you lack proper nutrition education.
7. Are always in a state of chaos, feeling anxious, anxiety, and stressed.
8. Unable to eliminate waste properly.
9. You try hard to eat healthy but feel upset by having little knowledge on how to choose healthy food.
10. Avoid having guest over because you're ashamed of how your home and kitchen looks.
But don't panic-compassionate, nonjudgmental help is available.
What is collaborative therapy?
Nikki of Spiced Life Conversation works collaboratively with her client's therapist, families, social workers, and other sources of support. This process is very helpful when clients have dysfunctional eating patterns, chronic disorganization, stress management needs, and other diagnosed mental health conditions. Collaborative therapy can involve psychiatrists, psychotherapists, the client’s family members, a nutritionist, a professional organizer, social worker and other local agencies all working and planning together to help the client create long-lasting changes in his or her home and wellness care plan.
How can collaborative therapy help me?
Through collaborative therapy I help patient make significant and lasting life changes. I encourage and assist patients who feel anxiety, helpless and buried by their clutter, disorganization, and dysfunctional eating patterns.
