Storm, fog, chaos. Life can be like the weather... difficult to navigate and hard to manage at times. Even when the storms are over and we can see what’s in front of us we're not always able to identify where we are or what direction we need to go in.
This is where I come in. I help people out of the storm and guide them in the direction they want to go - supporting them along the way.
My name is Tonia and I’ve created a business because I’m committed to helping individuals define and create their ideal lifestyles and/or business. We explore everything from personal growth and sustainability, to organizing along with making technical changes in your time and spaces. This process focuses on re-establishing your primary beliefs and thoughts that affect and drive your habits and routines.
I started my career as a teacher and after 12 years, in 2014, I decided that I wanted to follow my passion of helping people create spaces to match their ideal lives. Soon after starting TSS, I realized that while an organized space can be transformative, it was only the first step in making space to grow and evolve. I started to apply my background in education, the arts, and psychology — along with trial and error — to create an integrated process for individuals to meet their goals, and values. I’m a lifelong learner and continue to study mental health, human behavior and well being. I integrate motivational interviewing, mindfulness, habit changing and teaching strategies when working with clients.
The process of organizing your inner and outer world allows you to become more present, focused, and able to make decisions that match you intentions and values.
This five step process is based on my experience with clients from the past six years — I’ve found that it is truly effective for creating change, and adaptable to anyone’s individual situation and intention.
1. Clarity on goals — identify goals and underlying needs in order to achieve them.
2. To establish this process we map actionable steps within a certain timeframe.
3. Minimize what’s getting in the way — everything from physical belongings, habits, beliefs, and tasks that don’t match intentions and goals.
4. Organize and design physical spaces and conceptual systems (time, mindset, habits) that support your goals.
5. Sustain changes to your environment and lifestyle by shifting habits, beliefs, and refining your routines through an accountability system.

I sought out Tonia’s services while going through a major life transition of going back to university after ten years.
I knew that this transition was going to be difficult but with the help of Tonia, I was able to quickly restructure my routines and habits to accommodate my new lifestyle. This set me up for success and I was able to ace all my exams in the first semester all while finding the balance in life that I was looking for.
The reason I think Tonia’s method works it because she breaks down large tasks into achievable steps all while linking different aspects of your life that you may not think are that important. For example, one of our first steps was decluttering my study area. I never realized how much having a tidy, functional work space increases your study efficiency dramatically and makes other tasks such as planning all that much easier. When working with Tonia, she will take a holistic approach and create a plan of action that is catered specifically to you and your goals. I would highly recommend Tonia to anyone looking to restructure their life, eliminate any unwanted clutter, whether it be physical or mental, and find balance in their life. More...
Tonia showed up at the right moment in my life when I was in dire need of organizing several areas of my life. I took the Life Design Workshop and I feel enormously lucky to have been guided and supported by Tonia. She's enthusiastic, engaged and a very good listener and she's got a knack for distilling key information from participants. I finished the course feeling empowered and much better equipped to organize my life in a way to make it a little easier and to devote my time to things that makes life worth living. More...
The value of working with Tonia was immediately apparent. Her system broke down my personal goals into managed, incremental changes and helped me to focus on sustained change that would benefit not only myself but also my business.
I highly recommend Tonia’s services – anyone can benefit from the process and reap the professional and personal rewards of establishing a better relationship with your personal environment and yourself More...
I did online coaching sessions with Tonia with the goal of finding clarity on my professional goals. With her guidance, I made a vision for many areas of my life and started taking steps in that direction. I let go of physical and emotional stuff I no longer needed and I applied to job opportunities that were in tune with my values, wants and needs. I'm happy to say my apartment looks and feels better and soon after my sessions with Tonia ended, I got a job offer for a position that was better than what I had imagined. More...
