Tova then created Everything Has A Place in order to serve others. She loves and honors the intimacy this process creates and how it brings light to dark, dusty corners. Later, she began to be asked to help with other tasks around the home by her clients, and expanded her business to include personal assistance for clients who needed ongoing help in their lives.
The initial consultation with the client for organizing or personal assistance is done on the phone prior to the first session, generally to determine the client’s needs and to target the most challenging organizational ‘mess’ in the home. Upon entering the home, Tova digs right in by beginning the organizational process usually in the space that has created the most stress in their life.
Understanding that organizing any area goes emotionally deeper than what is usually presented, she endeavors to help her clients feel comfortable and un-judged. Emotions may arise which Tova encourages her clients to feel, while at the same time keeping things moving forward. Tova is unafraid of touching places that need to be touched or discussed. She knows how to move things to get the most accomplished, while holding the client in a way that feels safe and non-threatening.
For Personal Assisting, Tova offers a complimentary consultation in the client’s home to determine if it is a good match. Clients are encouraged to discuss their needs, goals and any concerns they might have. If it is decided to be a good match, Tova can begin services right away. Over the next few months, as she becomes familiar with the client’s preferences and home, Tova can make suggestions about what services are needed or not needed, and can adjust her time around the client’s needs. Tova welcomes questions, concerns, and feedback, and considers the process of being a personal assistant to be a continually evolving relationship.

Tova Diamond graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology. After a few years of peering down a microscope, she desired more human contact and so returned to school for a certification in Massage and Hypnotherapy, and soon developed a business in healing others.
Tova worked in the healing field for years. She witnessed how the external environment significantly affects the internal, emotional state, and vice-versa, so no matter how much bodywork a person received there would always be a lot of stress in their life.
One fine sunny day, she dreamed up the 'perfect job’. It would be to help people create spaces in their homes that they feel really good about.Spaces in which they could relax and enjoy and have others come visit.This process helps heal how people feel about themselves through healing their environment.
