Welcome to TouchPoint

These periodic communications will include topics on organization, Feng Shui, color, design, energy management, nutrition, psychology, health, time management, and anything in-between (not all at once, of course). These things are all very related and I hope to be able to show you those connections. My wish is that we all start living more wholesome lives. Considering how all aspects of our environment impact our bodies and minds and at the same time reflect who we are back to us is a crucial step towards that goal.

Regardless of the subject though, for the most part you can expect my usual irreverent take on things to shine through. I will also strive to educate my audience about this relatively new industry of Professional Organization; what is it and what it is not. You will be surprised to learn about the multitude of facets of this profession and the amazing ways a Professional Organizer can help you improve your life. There is a flavor for every person and every need.

I have tons to say about organization, but my approach to the subject is rather provocative. I’d like to present blogs, articles, images, quotes, and thoughts to challenge you and to make you wonder why you do what you do the way you do it. Only when you understand that, will you be in a better place to release patterns that no longer serve your purpose.

Although my intention is to challenge you to discover some answers within yourself, I hope you can laugh at yourself in the process. I do not make it easy for my clients, although I absolutely make them laugh a lot.

TouchPoint September 2018

A week after one of my newest clients moved into her new house, she called me in desperation. She had several issues: living in an incomprehensible mess that movers left her with could not find clothes to wear did not know where anything was lacked the time to get...

Maristella is a ball of energy. She whipped my small condo into shape and helped maximize the space. She pushed me to let go of old things I no longer needed to make room for clarity.

– J Shriver, Dallas

But when my closet was done, I cried and did the happy dance. This was part of a long-held dream of a beautiful master bathroom and closet area. My expectations were exceeded. She helped me let go of things I had no idea I needed to let go of. I am getting further educated on some habits I need to break.  Feeling like a kid about this “stuff” and gently being reminded what the cure is. My Space Reclaimed takes Mari Kondo to the next level!

-Sonya R. McKinney– August 2019

Maristella delivers what she promises and SO MUCH MORE! As a busy mom with 2 young boys it’s nearly impossible to stay on top of things. I didn’t know exactly HOW disorganized and poorly functioning my home was until after this experience. It is truly a life changer.
