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 clinical component to her work with clients utilizing her social work training in which sessions are a combination of compassionate counseling and clutter clearing.
Her specialty is working with clients who struggle with extreme clutter, namely those who are chronically disorganized or have compulsive hoarding behaviors. She is also trained in managing other mental health needs such as depression, anxiety, and ADHD which often are linked with disorganization.

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 underway.
