As Out to Lunch prepares to go back to hosting live lunches, for inspiration we’re taking a look at some of our pre-Covid shows. Here’s an Out to Lunch Best of: Hoarding Disorder.

We all have a pack rat in the family. Maybe, in fact, you’re the one with the house that’s always a little messy and disorganized. You might not diagnose yourself as having a hoarding disorder – or other mental disorders you wouldn’t expect in a business podcast – but that’s where we’re going on this edition of Out to Lunch

Over lunch at Mansurs on the Boulevard in Baton Rouge, Stephanie Riegel is joined by Alyssa Trosclair, owner of Emend, a professional organizing company that specializes in helping its clients organize their life. This is a new and emerging field; in fact, Alyssa is the only Certified Professional Organizer in Louisiana. As such, she does a lot more than just help you straighten your closet and de-clutter your bedroom, though she does that, too. Rather, as a professional organizer, Alyssa helps you understand why you’re disorganized and messy – what the root causes are – and how you can learn to address those issues and learn new systems of organizing your stuff and your life and, as a result, perform better and feel happier and less stressed. 

Dr. Charlie Frey is a licensed clinical psychologist, whose practice, Frey Psychology, specializes in psychoeducational testing for learning disorders and ADHD, evaluation and treatment of anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and psychologically complicated chronic pain conditions, among others.
