hoardingHoarding and Decluttering

6:00 pm, Tuesday, May 9

Compulsive hoarding is the excessive acquisition of possessions, even if the items are worthless, hazardous, or unsanitary. Compulsive hoarding impairs mobility and interferes with basic activities, including cooking, cleaning, showering, and sleeping.  It can take over your life and make you feel like you are out of control. Millions of people suffer from the frustration and embarrassment that this can cause. The symptoms vary from individual to individual, but anyone who feels that they need help more than they need to keep the clutter can get help beating the problem. Terrence Shulman has dedicated his life to helping people overcome their addictive behaviors and his program might just be the answer you've been looking for.
