What We Do

Treatment

At The Hoarding Project, we recognize that hoarding is a complex and delicate mental health and public safety concern, and we gear our approach to treatment to attend to the unique and specific needs of each client, family, and situation.

We offer a variety of options for addressing hoarding-related concerns, including reduced-fee therapy services, consultation, support groups, and Safety Days (or coordinated clean-outs with a focus on harm and stress reduction).

Reduced Fee Therapy Services

In both our Minnesota and Washington locations, we offer reduced fee therapy services for people who hoard and their family members. These services are offered on a sliding fee scale [link to PDF], and may be conducted either in-office or in-home, depending on availability. For further information, please contact: info@thehoardingproject.org

Clinical Work


We believe the best way to work with people who hoard is not by immediately cleaning out their space, but rather first by helping create understanding about why they hoard.

Research


We study hoarding through systematic, ecological, and ambiguous loss theoretical perspectives, considering how hoarding behavior not only influences families, communities and cultures, but also how these factors influence hoarding behavior.

Education


Based on our research and clinical findings, we offer educational opportunities through groups, speaking events, therapy and written materials. It is our belief that education about hoarding can lead to deeper insight, promoting compassionate understanding and support among those affected by this behavior.
