About the Event: 

Hoarding is a condition that has been catching the attention of the public for the last decade or so. Most of them don't understand it or know how to help. In this presentation we will cover the other point of view of the disorder. How grief can aggravate it and real life situations from the point of view of the person who hoards. 

Earn 1.5 Contact Hours for attending this event.

About the Presenter:

Maria Spetalnik is a board Certified Professional Organizer (CPO) ® with over 25 years of experience helping others to establish control of their lives by helping them control their clutter. She is trained in organizational topics including chronic disorganization, hoarding, ADHD, Mental Health disorders, and elders.  Her company, Conquer the Clutter, employs a team of organizers offering personalized service ranging from short-term small projects to long-term large-scale support.

Maria takes a hands-on, holistic approach with clients, helping them work past the physical, mental and emotional causes of the clutter. She believes in her client’s ability to improve and teaches them how to make ongoing decisions about what to keep, sell or donate. Her goal is for them to be able to continue to do this for themselves in the future.

Maria has taught classes in multiple states about Chronic Disorganization and Hoarding to Police Officers, Sheriffs, Code Compliance Officers, Fire Marshalls, Animal Control Officers, EMT’s, Social Services Departments, Therapists, and others. Her Hoarding Basics class was entered into the FBI’s permanent training library in Quantico. She has worked with many of these professionals on behalf of her clients.

Her most recent book: Hoarding for Law Enforcement and Other Public Officials is a guide for public officials in how to navigate in a world that can be quite overwhelming for the unprepared.
