Help Organizing, Donating & Cutting Through the Hoard
It’s a challenge for most people, but for someone with a compulsive hoarding disorder, disposing of almost anything can cause severe anxiety and other emotional stresses. If you want to help a friend or relative with a hoarding disorder, you’ve come to the right place.
When considering how to help a hoarder, it’s important to realize that people with compulsive hoarding tendencies often ascribe symbolic meaning to what others would consider mundane items. For this reason, helping hoarders is about more than just discarding trash and unwanted items; it’s about understanding the client’s connection to the item and helping him or her move beyond this emotional connection painlessly.
Maggie understands that helping hoarders is a long-term commitment, and we provide patient support and tools to help hoarders make continual progress in the fight against clutter.
Margaret provides consultations to hoarders in the Tri-State Area and their friends or family members who are looking to help.
