Hoarding as a Mental Health Issue
Having launched the first service program in the Greater Spokane area for individuals self-identifying with hoarding behaviors, provides a better understanding of this mental health disorder.
Ceci Garrett is the founder and Executive Director of Lightening the Load, a ministry that works to connect those in the Spokane area with resources and hope as they unclutter their homes, lives, and relationships. Her work to raise awareness about the effects hoarding disorder has on the family and the community stems from her personal experiences growing up with a hoarding parent. Ceci received her Bachelor’s in Psychology from Liberty University and recently began offering in-home clutter coaching through her business, Hoarding Consultants Northwest.
