Hoarding During the Pandemic - Now What?

Hoarding got significantly worse during the pandemic for people that already had hoarding issues. Now they are wondering how they are ever going to stop their behavior and clear their clutter.
PORTLAND, Ore. - May 23, 2022 - PRLog -- Karin E. Fried of Organizational Consulting Services has been providing a "virtual" work group for people with Hoarding issues long before the pandemic hit. With hoarding behaviors on the increase more people are aware that their clutter is controlling them and they are looking for help to stop their behavior.

Fried's "virtual" class has reached people around the world - from Australia, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Toronto, British Columbia, London and the USA.

Hoarding is a complex and isolating condition. It is often misunderstood. It is not often talked about.

The "Buried in Treasures" group teaches people with hoarding behavior new skills. It helps them overcome challenges, increases motivation and helps them reduce acquiring.

Each week there is a discussion around a skill, followed by the completion of challenging and rewarding exercises. There are tips on decluttering and how to stop over-acquiring. Individual progress, challenges, successes and goals are monitored through the program.

The group is a judgement free environment for people that are ready to make a change in their life.

If you are overwhelmed with too many possessions, are embarrassed to have people over and are ready to make a change – this group can help you get there.

There is hope – you just have to be ready and willing to take the first step.

Karin E. Fried of Organizational Consulting Services has earned her advanced Level II: Hoarding Specialist Certificate from the Institute for Challenging Disorganization (ICD).

The Specialist Certificate provides in-depth information on hoarding and how to help clients stop the acquiring and saving and stay organized.

"My ongoing education allows me to work with clients who are challenged by hoarding in a very specific manner," said Fried. "Increasing my knowledge will enable me to provide the highest quality individualized services to my clients."

Fried works with many mental health and social service agencies and their clients with hoarding issues.

Fried started the Missoula Hoarding Task Force to bring education and support to the people of Montana.
