I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and co-founder of The Hoarding Project. I have experience working with individuals, couples, adolescents and families providing therapy services. In my Tacoma practice, I specialize in work with families struggling with problems related to hoarding disorder, and I also see clients with issues relating to depression, anxiety, life transitions, relationship enrichment, premarital education, and couples’ conflict.
I earned my Master’s degree from Seattle Pacific University in 2008 and moved to the Midwest to continue my education at the University of Minnesota. I have recently returned to the Pacific Northwest and am currently working on completing my dissertation work for my Ph.D. in Family Social Science, which will be investigating the dynamics of families who have a member who hoards.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and co-founder of The Hoarding Project. I have experience working with individuals, couples and families. In my St. Paul, Minnesota private practice, I specialize in work with issues of trauma, grief and loss, specifically with ambiguous losses. I work with a variety of populations including refugees, families living with a dementia diagnosis, and hoarding disorder.
I earned my master’s degree in marriage and family therapy from Bethel Seminary in 2006, and will be completing a second master’s degree in family social science in May of 2013.
The mission of The Hoarding Project is to change our culture’s understanding about hoarding behavior through research-informed therapy, education, and professional collaboration.
The Minnesota Hoarding Project (MHP) was established in late 2009, by Jennifer Sampson, a marriage and family therapist and doctoral student in the Family Social Science Department at the University of Minnesota.
