Do you find it nearly impossible to let material things go? Hoarding disorder is a mental illness characterized by the inability to get rid of physical possessions. In severe cases of hoarding, sufferers may acquire so many things that they live in squalor and even endanger their own lives.

If you or someone you love needs help for hoarding, hoarding specialists are available to help you understand your hoarding behavior and how to get control over it. Whether you are located in downtown Washington DC, Anacostia, Ballston, Bluemont, or even Brentwood, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Common Hoarding Disorder Symptoms

When someone is suffering from hoarding disorder, they might have some of the following symptoms:

  • Having so much clutter that it takes over physical spaces and makes them unusable.
  • Feeling stressed or anxious at the thought of getting rid of material items.
  • Conflict over organizing and planning.
  • Isolation from friends or loved ones.
  • Hesitation to invite people over, and suspicion when they are there.

There are many more hoarding disorder symptoms, though the above are some of the most common.

If any of the above symptoms ring true for you or someone you love, we recommend seeking help for hoarding from a licensed mental health professional. Read this article to gain some insight into how to tell if a therapist is right for you.
