UW-S to offer course on how to simplify life
In a cooperative effort to meet the needs of people struggling with clutter in their lives and homes, the University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan and local business Clutter To Comfort are co-sponsoring a new course this spring, "Clutter To Comfort – How to Clear Your Home, Head and Heart."
Are you wishing to simplify your life? Do you want to regain a sense of balance in your home, head and heart? Is clutter robbing you of peace of mind? Are you unsure of how or where to begin living life on purpose? Join us as we discuss the thoughts, feelings and behaviors which can overwhelm us.
This class will examine how and why we hold on to clutter. This clutter often manifests itself as emotional burden, mental stress and physical disorganization. We will explore how to simplify and clear the clutter -- from home, head and heart -- and begin living a life of greater intention, in a space of improved utility.
Class will consist of presentation with handouts, exercises and discussion. A gentle and non-judgmental approach will be used, with attendees encouraged to participate at their level of comfort. The three-part class will be offered on Thursday evenings, April 4, 11, 18 from 6:30-8:30 p.m., on the UW-Sheboygan campus. Cost is $89, with pre-registration required.
The class presenter is Pamela Hertel, MS, LCSW, LPC. Hertel is a Licensed Psychotherapist and Professional Organizer. Hertel is the owner of Clutter To Comfort, a service which offers coaching and counseling to clear your home, head and heart. With this business, Hertel has merged her two career passions -- providing professional, confidential mental health therapy and helping people organize their space to create more comfort and function.
Hertel is a Wisconsin licensed psychotherapist, with more than 35 years of experience in a variety of settings -- hospitals, counseling agencies, education and advocacy organizations -- working as an educator, administrator and therapist. She is a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers.
