It takes a great amount of strength and courage to reach out and ask for help, or even explore that option. We can all use extra support at times throughout our life, whether we are experiencing high levels of stress, symptoms, or have been going through major adjustments in life. I am a licensed clinical professional counselor who believes therapy is a collaborative relationship that assists individuals in building their tool box, instills hope, and helps them overcome obstacles that create difficulty in their life.

I have spent many years working in higher education and the corporate world as a Human Resources professional. This experience benefits me in helping clients deal with workplace issues and career changes. During my clinical practicum-internship training at Warrenville Youth & Family Services (WYFS), a well-established community counseling center, my client population was very diverse. I have conducted individual and group sessions as well as family sessions. Most of my clientele are considered low SES with many high-risk factors.

My ideal patient is someone who may be struggling to find relief with just psychotherapy and/or psychotropic medications alone. This is a person who feels stuck and wants to seek alternative approaches towards improving their mental health. From children to elderly patients, neurofeedback is a modality that can benefit almost anyone with a wide array of presenting conditions. If your goal is to improve your cognitive functioning and flexibility and to not feel "stuck" anymore, then consider neurofeedback as a treatment option for you.

Hoarding Therapists

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.
