This week’s guest blogger is Leslie Josel, a nationally recognized expert on chronic disorganization and hoarding issues. Leslie has appeared on several episodes of TLC’s hit television show, “Hoarding: Buried Alive,” the Cooking Channel’s television special, “Stuffed: Food Hoarders,” “dLife-TV” and the nationally syndicated “The Better Show” as an organizing expert. She is frequently quoted in mainstream news media such as MORE Magazine, Better Homes and Gardens, New York’s Daily News, Westchester magazine and many other print media.
In 2004, Ms. Josel launched Order Out of Chaos, a Mamaroneck-based company that provides organization and relocations services for the chronically disorganized (ADHD, students with learning challenges, hoarding behaviors).
Here’s more about how Leslie launched Order Out of Chaos:
“My son was diagnosed with ADHD, executive dysfunction and other learning differences. So, this all started with me trying to untangle his world. I didn’t know how helpful it was until a friend (who was a therapist) saw the work I did for my son and asked if I would be interested in helping a patient of hers in the same way. Not only did I do it, but the results were extremely successful; word got out within the special needs community of what I had done for my son and my friend’s patient and my services became in demand. As the business took off, I became certified in chronic disorganization, as a hoarding specialist and also a certified JST coach for teens and college students with ADHD.”
