About Helen Helen leading a decluttering workshop
Helen Volk receiving the "Woman of Excellence" Award for Excellence in Business from the Women's Business Council of the Albany-Colonie Regional Chamber of Commerce.
Helen Volk practiced law for 17 years. Now she helps people de-clutter and de-stress their lives. Helen, who used to be a pack rat herself, believes that you have to empty your life to fulfill it. That's what she did. She downsized by giving away two thirds of her possessions and moving to a smaller house. "[I realized one day that] not one religious tradition teaches that the purpose of life is owning stuff. But they all stress simple living as a spiritual principle. It was a revelation that shook me to the core of my being," says Helen. Once she committed to the idea of simplifying her life, the rest was easy. Now, through workshops, seminars and one-on-one sessions, Helen teaches others that they can enjoy fuller, more meaningful lives and feel richer than ever by having less. 7 Simple Steps to Unclutter Your Life, pg.

I attended Helen's Elderhostel program years ago. When I called her, Helen came to Florida and helped me get organized at the beginning and made the process flow much smoother than it would have. I even held my own garage sale with her encouragement and advice. We kept in touch by e-mail. Near the end of my move, Helen returned, kept me on track, helped me pack and take care of the "left-over" items. I was overwhelmed until Helen came to my rescue. Thank you, Helen.
With compassion, humor, enthusiasm and expertise Helen guided me through the process of downsizing and gave me the skills to maintain a clutter-free environment. She turned an overwhelming situation into a life-changing journey, traveling with me in manageable increments. She is an invaluable resource! A. Casler

Helen Volk took a subject we take for granted and gave it wit, charm, humor and an army sargeant's toughness.
Very provocative thinking after the course.
Who wouldn't enjoy Helen's animated performance and all those practical ideas. Wow!
Helen Volk's presentation of subject matter was great - entertaining, meaningful, thoughtful, inspirational. Thoroughly enjoyed the five days with her.
