"Buried in Treasures," a workshop that addresses hoarding behavior, will begin Monday, Jan. 15, at 1 p.m. at St. Paul Lutheran Church, 202 Brooks St. 

The workshop is about more than clutter; it includes  overcoming challenges, increasing motivation, reducing acquiring, prioritizing and celebrating choices. 

This program offers a 16-week course that is based on the book "Buried In Treasures." The Buried in Treasures group is for people who would like to learn tips on how to de-clutter and stop over-acquiring with people who know what it’s like. Each week we will have a discussion around a specific skill, followed by the completion of challenging and rewarding exercises. Individual progress, challenges, successes, and goals are also monitored throughout the 16 weeks.

Participants are expected to commit to attending all the sessions as well as to participate actively. 

Registration is required. Call 440-666-9326 or email kefconsulting@gmail.com for more information. A virtual class is also available — call/email for information.
