In 2013, Sarah Soboleski started Classically Organized, a professional organizing business focused on helping homeowners de-clutter and organize their living spaces. As her business grew, her niche narrowed to a focus on hoarding cases and the chronically disorganized with complex mental health needs.
In 2017, Sarah honed her focus and opened Classically Organized Counseling. She provides therapy services to individuals struggling with hoarding, OCD, anxiety, depression, and chronic disorganization. It's an effective way for Sarah to use her expertise as a Clinical Social Worker and her skills as a Professional Organizer to help people tackle both their physical and mental clutter in order to find harmony.

When she’s not working with clients, Sarah is happily chasing after her 5-year-old, truck-loving son. She 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.
