Chronic Disorganization and Hoarding

Our services provide the environmental changes that ultimately transcend into behavioral and emotional growth. Compulsive hoarders generally obtain a large quantity of items that they fail to use or discard in a timely fashion. Eventually these items take over the living quarters and begin to obstruct the common use of the room or rooms as they are intended to be used. Everything Organized understands the emotional, psychological and behavioral state of hoarding.

Everything Organized* believes in taking a collaborative therapy approach with our hoarding clientele. This means that we arrange to have many different types of support on hand before, during, and after the project is completed. This can include (but is not limited to), medical professionals, family, friends, etc.  We do this to provide emotional support for our clients which greatly increases success post project.

We are expert at creating a fresh start for our clients in a safe, non-judgmental and confidential manner. We know it is difficult for individuals with hoarding tendencies to take steps towards change but together we can begin to make a fresh start. We’ll show you how. Call us today to free yourself and bring control back into your life.

What is the definition of hoarding?

Hoarding is the excessive collection of items, along with the inability to discard them. Hoarding often creates such cramped living conditions that homes may be filled to capacity, with only narrow pathways winding through stacks of clutter. Some people also collect animals, keeping dozens or hundreds of pets often in unsanitary conditions. This condition may also place a significant distress or impairment of work or social life.
