"After the sudden loss of my husband, I felt lost and didn't want to continue living in my home. Charlene came in and helped me sort through his belongings. Helping me decide what really sparked joy for me. She guided and supported me through my decision process and even helped me move some furniture around! After my Estate Organization process, I felt lighter and with peace. I feel like I can move on with a fresh start and decided to keep my home."
"I can’t thank you enough for teaching me how to tidy up my home. You have sparked joy like no other! What an incredible experience! The clarity you have provided in helping me get rid of “stuff” is truly magical! I feel so at peace in my home. The reset button has been set, and I’m forever grateful! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!"
"The most amazing experience ever! I desperately needed to organize my clothes and was looking for the right Professional Organizer, but didn’t really know where to start. With Charlene's guidance and support I was able to determine what garments sparked joy for me and ended up filling 5 bags of clothes to discard. I highly recommend hiring Charlene to organize your home!"
"Like most, over the years I developed the mindset that my belongings were important, significant and even necessary and justified it with the “just in case I needed them later” mentality. I am neat and organized but always felt like my closet was jammed packed. I had assorted containers of seasonal clothing and an insane collection of purses stacked all the way to the celling! To top it off, my clothes were being smashed, I had to convert to fabric hangers just to make room. In addition, I have a tall dresser filled with clothes. One drawer, I never even opened! When Charlene Shires of the Keystone Effect introduced me to the KonMari concept, I knew I was in good hands. Her kind and gentle approach allowed me to dive a little inward to really become aware of the emphasis I had placed on things. As she worked with me, I immediately understood how to determine necessity and how to simplify this one small, yet significant daily function… dressing each day. She then organized my closet methodically and now when I go into it, I feel peace. I know exactly where things are and can find them easily. There are no more items I don’t or can’t wear. I dress up each day for my job, and it’s never been so easy. This is because my closet only contains items and clothes that are in good condition, feel good when I wear them, and that definitely brings me joy! It’s been about 3 weeks since Charlene transformed my closet and her teachings have been easy to maintain. I’m still amazed each time I walk into my closet or open a drawer. I think about the 5 garbage bags I donated to Good Will. Not because I have any remorse. Charlene reminded me of the new joy I will bring someone else. To me, that’s a win-win. I am grateful for this experience and would highly recommend Charlene of Keystone Effect. It will change everything."
"I am so impressed with the results. I hired Charlene to organize my pantry, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom closet. I couldn't be happier with the results. She is truly talented at what she does. I keep opening the pantry and just standing there staring at amazement. I highly recommend Charlene from the Keystone effect she definitely knows what she is doing."
"Charlene is a gifted home organization expert. She comes to you with all of her warmth as a person and with her knowledge and experience. She created a schedule and timeline that was very manageable so I would not feel overwhelmed. The most important part is that she gave me the accountability I needed to get the job done and I am so happy with the results!
The process she leads you through is healing and for me allowed me to literally get through baggage I’ve been unnecessarily carrying for years!
I am extremely grateful to her and wish her great success!"
