Kathy Johnson - Owner
Hi. I'm Kathy. I've always loved Home Organizing. I remember creating a "library" in my room so my family could check books in and out from me. I also typed all of our grocery prices into my own "cash register" before they were allowed to be neatly put away, categorized with all labels facing out. Ice cream suffered mightily at my hand. 😊 I also recall my mother saying I was "odd", lol, so I get that organizing isn't easy for everyone and certainly isn't a typical passion... but for me it is.
I also love helping people. I am honored to be invited in when my clients are feeling buried under clutter. Working with them to lift and relieve the stressful, overwhelming feelings that add to life's challenges. By organizing the home, we create functional and comfortable spaces. My goal with clients is to lift the anxiety and shame and make home a sanctuary.
I work one on one with you, develop a personal relationship and work to thoroughly learn your strengths, your goals, and your struggles. We will look at each item individually to determine if it is still a good fit for your life or if it’s time to let go. I am a no stress, no commitment assistant helping you to realize your vision of your happiest home. I will not force you to promise a several hour visit, multiple times. If we connect, I want YOU to be empowered to invite me into your home when YOU want to. I will keep our meetings confidential, and I will work in conjunction with any other professionals you may have helping you in your life.
She's helped me and my husband so much after hurricane Harvey declutter the house and office.

I love Kathy!
She’s helped me and my husband so much after hurricane Harvey declutter the house and office.
We were very overwhelmed and she came to our rescue.

Five days before a community yard sale I started to panic. I had a garage full of stuff and I needed help. Kathy came to my rescue. She helped me sort, clean, organize and price. She even came and helped me set up the morning of the sale. Thanks to Kathy I had a successful day.

At, probably the very most difficult time in my life, Kathy came in, helped me address, manage and fix a mess so big and overwhelming that I was avoiding it in an extreme way. Her compassion, understanding, ability to break it up into pieces and not judge me for what I honestly felt ashamed for leaving untouched for way too long was what got me through it. I was going through and dealing with big things in my life at the time, big trauma. Trauma that left me unable to deal with every day but important and normal parts of life. With her help, I got a handle on it and while it made me feel nervous and overwhelmed to deal with it, now that it's done, I'm so much happier and feel a thousand times more in control. 10 years and about 40+ boxes / bags of neglected, but stored paperwork, receipts and mess are now reduced to only 3 boxes of necessary records and documents and the junk I was storing for years is reduced to only the things I really love. Thank you a million times over, for holding my hand and helping me face it <3

When I first met Kathy, my upstairs was so cluttered and out of control, that I was too embarrassed to show it to her. She was very patient. When I did finally show it to her, she made me feel comfortable and quickly set it all straight. I say quickly, but it took a while. There was a crazy amount of stuff in my house. We graduated to the cabinets and pantries downstairs and to my garage. Her job is not easy. I don't envy what she does, but she is the best at it. She helps you see your "stuff" in an honest way so that you know what you should keep and should move out. I would recommend her to anyone. And do.
Kathy assisted our family in clearing out our parents’ home. She was fast, efficient, professional, honest and personable. She arrived when she said she would, worked hard to help us sort things, and used her expansive contacts to get things sold and donated as appropriate. She also arranged for a service to remove the remainders that could not be sold or donated. Throughout the process, she was upbeat and kind. I would recommend her services very highly.
I can’t express how wonderful Kathy is. I get very anxious with organizing my paperwork. I was having to go through my father’s papers after he passed. Also, I had been sick and fallen behind in my taxes. She helped me get current. She is a winner!
Kathy has done an amazing job of organizing my home and helping me get rid of unnecessary things that are cluttering up my space. She works well with elderly people like my 88-year-old mother, respecting Mom’s need to hang on to things that have memories attached, while condensing and organizing at the same time. If you haven’t had Kathy help you declutter and organize, you need to!
Kathy was great! She helped us pack for a move, decide which items to keep or throw away, and helped us organize the boxes in an efficient manner to make our move-in much easier. She’s a hard worker and I would highly recommend.
Absolutely! She is amazing!! Such a beautiful person – and so customer friendly. She is like Mary Poppins / magically transforms any space into a haven with the desired ambiance. She just needs to wave her magic wand. Love her professionalism and commitment. Need organizational help? Call her NOW! She can conquer it all.
I highly recommend Kathy. She is professional, courteous & fast! She does not waste time just to charge extra money. She get’s in and out quickly and leaves a nice, neat, organized space behind. I will be using her to help me and have referred her to clients who have absolutely LOVED working with her. She is honest & trustworthy, so I trust leaving her at my home if I have to go do something while she is de-cluttering for me, and she has one of the best rates around.
I do business with people I know, like and trust. This lady right here will give you the same feeling as she gives me. Kathy, thank you!
Definitely would recommend Kathy Conquers Clutter anytime! I saw her interact with others that would inspire anyone to search for her help if needed.
