A Note From Randi

I've had the honor of working with amazing clients for more than 20 years. Some of which have overcome insurmountable organizing challenges. In fact, A Helping Hand's logo is a representation of my client's life-changing transformations that have inspired me personally. 

What's even more inspiring is being able to give back through my clients.  I am grateful for the opportunity to be part of their journey to improve their quality of life. I hope you'll give us that chance as well. Whether it be a specific project or a matter of circumstances, I promise you'll be in good hands.

Our Approach to Organizing

We understand that compassion, respect and integrity bring out the best in everyone. Simply put, A Helping Hand focuses on "what works best for each individual."

When you work with us, we'll create a plan centered around you. Though thoughtful insight and patience, we'll teach you how to start and maintain healthy habits that will improve your overall well-being.

Our Commitment to You

No matter what your circumstances are, A Helping Hand is committed to serving our clients in a confidential, kind and non-judgmental way. We respect our clients personally as well as their belongings.

Live Healthier. Live Happier. Get Organized.

Judith Kohlberg, Founder ICD

Randi  has a deep commitment to people who are chronically disorganized, as evidenced by her long hours of study, investment in continuing education and willingness to learn anything that will help her clients. If I were chronically disorganized, she'd be my pick!

Susan S.

Randi and I have worked together for the past thirteen years. I couldn't live without her help. We've worked in my business and my home. She motivates me and helps keep me focused when we're together. She's so patient, kind  and non-judgmental. We also laugh together. Who would have thought I'd ever be enjoying organizing with someone? Well, I do with Randi. She's the very best. I recommend her to everyone!
