What impact would weekly support and coaching sessions with a professional have on your your ability to cope with the impact excessive clutter and hoarding has had on you? Would it be helpful to better understand hoarding and how to best help your family member to address their clutter and maintain motivation and progress? The number of experts in clutter, hoarding behavior, and hoarding disorder is significantly low in comparison to the number of people reaching out for help. Access to a professional for support and guidance is often limited by geographic location and cost. Join this weekly live discussion led by Marnie Matthews, MSW, LICSW. Learn skills and strategies to help you cope, learn more about issues of clutter, have your questions answered, discuss varying topics, and learn skills and strategies to help you best help your family member to address their clutter and maintain their progress.
