Ceci Garrett is a determined and caring survivor who has a deep awareness of what it’s like to support a Parent Who Hoards (PWH). She also has been featured on the show “Hoarders” and shares about that experience from her perspective.
That experience highlighted the need for resources for the adult children who are navigating PWH’s home and mental health issues. This resulted in the Parents Who Hoard Workbook. This resource takes adult children through a series of questions to help them recognize and be prepared adequately to intervene (or possibly to choose NOT to) in their parent’s hoarding issues.
Ceci Garrett, MSW, LSWAIC, is a clinical social work associate in the state of Washington who specializes in hoarding disorder. She works with individuals who have an abundance of possessions and struggle to let go of accumulated items. Her work includes working with couples, adult children, and other loved ones looking to set healthy boundaries with their loved one who hoards.
She has been working with this population since 2012 and has been featured in the Spokesman Review, TedXSpokane, blogged at Huffpost, and presented at several conferences about the experiences of growing up with a parent who hoards (PWH).
