In 2013, Sarah Soboleski, LCSW started Classically Organized, a professional organizing business focused on helping homeowners de-clutter and organize their living spaces.  As her business grew, she added a therapeutic component to her work with clients utilizing her social work training in which sessions can include compassionate counseling along with the clutter clearing. If you already have a mental health practitioner, Sarah is more than willing to collaborate with them to support your needs.

Her specialty is working with individuals who struggle with extreme clutter, namely those who are chronically disorganized or have compulsive hoarding behaviors.  Contact Sarah to learn how she can help and support you.

When she’s not working with clients, Sarah is working with kids. She is a part-time social worker for the Town of South Windsor Youth & Family Services Program. In her free time, she happily chases after her 6-year-old, Lego-loving son. She also enjoys reading for pleasure, baking sweet goodies, and cheering on all the New England sports teams. Sarah and her husband (and Ruby, the cat) are homebodies and always seem to have a home improvement project going on.
