My Story – Mom, Counselor, Coach, and Organizer

was last modified: December 7th, 2014 by Leah Stanton

I am a social worker, counselor, coach, and organizer. But, first and foremost, I am a mom.  Let me tell you a bit about Serene Spaces and how it came to be.

Simplicity ParentingI was drawn to social work and counseling because I love working with people, and helping them overcome the obstacles between where they are in life and where they want to be. I have worked with children and families in a school setting, as well as individuals and couples in a counseling center.

After several years in these traditional counseling settings, I began to see a pattern among my clients. Talking through their goals, challenges, and dreams was helpful, but they also needed hands-on help to declutter, organize and simplify their lives. My clients were struggling with how to do all they wanted to do in a day, how to be available and fully present for their families, how to care for themselves, and how to create a home that didn’t overwhelm them with “stuff.”

My passions for working with people, organizing and simplifying, and creating home environments that nourish and support my clients and their families came together to create Serene Spaces. If these challenges resonate with you, please contact me.
