Dr. Phil Reviews The Characteristics Of A Hoarder

Jodee says her husband, Charlie, has spent the last dozen years cluttering up their home, outbuildings, and vehicles with junk. She claims he’s a hoarder and says they argue about the problem at least once a week. “It’s hard for me to be motivated to clean or do stuff for her when all she does is criticize,” says Charlie. He says he’s a collector, not a hoarder, and that Jodee exaggerates about the clutter and disorder in their lives. Jodee and Charlie both say it’s an ongoing issue that has impacted their marriage.
