Hoarding disorder is a fascinating psychological problem. Because it is a low-insight condition, few individuals seek treatment for the condition. The author of this chapter encourages mental health professionals who wish to develop a niche practice in the treatment of hoarding disorder to broaden their expertise to include not only cognitive-behavioral therapy but also consultations to family members and to agencies who work with people who hoard; to develop or to participate on hoarding taskforces in their communities; and to educate communities by making presentations to organizations who may serve people who hoard. Guidance is provided on the training needed to enter this practice niche, the business aspects of this type of practice, and the joys and challenges of this work. Resources are provided for those interested in pursuing this niche area of practice.
