You are not alone. At REACH we build real connections with real people walking through our door. Humor, genuine compassion and empathy are necessary for healing-especially the humor part-and combined together, they create a healing force! We know that sometimes, life is just hard. It can come out of nowhere, but know that counselling helps during the tough times. It helps us endure when we don’t think we can, helps us recover from what we’ve survived, teaches us how to gain insight about who we are and find our way back to "our normal" when we feel lost and alone. We are here for you.

What do you want your life to look like? Are you feeling overwhelmed, distracted, unable to concentrate? Does the harsh sound of your morning alarm create a feeling of dread? Are you hoping that your next coffee, snack, or social media scrolling session will give you the energy to keep going? It is said that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step and counselling is like that too. Making the decision to attend counselling is an important step and frequently made when you are struggling and feeling overwhelmed. I applaud your courage in taking steps towards recognizing things in your life that are not serving you.

You maybe doing fairly well in some areas of your life and in others you may feel that you could be functioning a lot better- in your interaction with others (children, parents, partner). There may be challenges in your relationships with colleagues; your choice of career does not seem to be meeting what you believe is your life purpose; you may not even know what your life purpose is! you may be struggling with self-worth and self-esteem issues; you may be experiencing just overall feelings of dissatisfaction in different aspects of your life..health, finances etc.

Welcome! Choosing a psychologist can feel overwhelming. During sessions it is important that anyone who comes to see me feels that they are in a non-judgemental and safe environment. The first thing I will do is listen to your situation and determine a course of action, after all you are coming to therapy for results. From this point we will work together to ensure that progress continues. Therapy can be scary and a complete relief at the same time. You will be in good hands as resolution for your concerns begins. All insurance benefits can be utilized.

It takes a lot to invest in therapy - emotions, time and finance but more importantly it takes a lot of courage. Asking for help is not an easy task but when someone does, they want their therapist to be invested in their wellbeing. I believe in every individual's innate capacity to bring a positive change and improve their feelings of satisfaction and the overall quality of their lives. My goal is to provide them skills and tools that can help them achieve this change. I provide therapy to adult individuals which includes (but not limited to) Veterans, First Responders, and Motor Vehicle Accident clients.

Humor, genuine compassion and empathy are necessary for healing - especially the humor part! Which is why they are benchmarks of my clinical practice. Combined together, the healing force created is a 'game changer' in people's lives. My approach to psychotherapy is person centered (congrats, you are unique! Your therapy should be too), grounded in attachment theory (relationships are our friend! Don't argue...everyone needs a friend) and developmental psychology (we all go through life changes, change suucks, but it's unavoidable). All this guides our path to wellness. Heads up - standard credential speech ahead...

Do you have thoughts that scare you or make you feel ashamed? Do you wonder why you're having them and what they mean? Does it feel wrong/irresponsible/risky/dangerous to ignore the thoughts? You try to solve, figure out, and get rid of the thoughts quickly. You argue with the thoughts, but your mind argues back. You spend a lot of time distracting yourself and avoiding anyone or anything that triggers them. You’d give anything for the horrible thoughts/feelings to stop, but no matter what you do they keep coming back. You just want to feel better and live a normal life. If this sounds like you, I might be a great therapist for you.

I approach my client's challenges with warmth, compassion, and curiosity. In therapy we explore the barriers that hold you back from having the life you desire. My focus is to guide you towards a deeper level of change. We do this by exploring the patterns keeping you stuck, beliefs that limit you, and thoughts that cause you distress. Often these patterns are rooted in the past. With awareness, we can heal the past and change our beliefs, thoughts, and behaviours and make choices that move us towards wellness and satisfaction in life. I specialize in helping clients encountering relationship difficulties through an attachment lens.

Hoarding Counsellors

What is the most effective treatment for hoarding?

Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) has been well-studied in the treatment of hoarding. This type of therapy includes changing beliefs surrounding possessions, as well as learning how to discard items and reduce acquisitions. The hoarder may also gain much-needed organizational skills. Another useful therapy may be compassion-focused therapy, which can address emotion regulation and negative self-perception.

How long does therapy for hoarding take?

Although treatment can vary, most people demonstrate improvement after 23 sessions, with some showing improvement after just a few sessions. Researchers have developed a 26-session cognitive behavioral program. People who hoard may need “maintenance” sessions over the years if the problem arises repeatedly.

Are there medications for hoarding?

The more commonly-prescribed medications for hoarding are including antidepressants, including selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), and serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs). This can include drugs such as venlafaxine and paroxetine. And because hoarding disorder is related to obsessive-compulsive disorder, medications for OCD, such as clomipramine, may be effective for hoarding as well.

Can hoarding come back after treatment?

Hoarding is a chronic disorder and it can last throughout an individual’s lifetime. Regularly checking in with a psychotherapist can help manage symptoms long-term. A good therapist will help the person learn needed skills including decision-making, organization, and stress reduction. The patient will gain a better perspective and the need to cling to useless items will lessen.
