Cluttered Home Intervention

Alyssa, 28, is a freelance photographer who works out of her home. She says that her messy environment often impacts her life, because she can’t find what she needs in the piles of stuff strewn about her home. She adds that she especially neglects straightening up her bedroom and often will create projects to avoid cleaning. Alyssa reached out to The Doctors to get help reorganizing her home.

The Doctors enlist the help of life stylist Moll Anderson, who visits Alyssa’s home to survey the work to be done. When asked about the wooden furniture cluttering the home, Alyssa says it used to belong to her grandparents. She tearfully describes the wonderful relationship she had with her grandfather and says she inherited many of her habits from him.

“We have to remove things that are painful,” Moll says before suggesting that they move the old furniture into the garage and start fresh. 

Alyssa agrees, and Moll and her team get to work clearing out Alyssa’s home and giving it a fabulous makeover.

“This is amazing,” Alyssa says.

“I want you to look in that mirror every day and say, ‘I’m worth it, I deserve this, and I need to take care of myself,’” Moll replies.
