I can help people take back their life from their CLUTTER! I help them to understand and deal with the underlying reasons that they hoard, or excessively acquire. I am a recognized Canadian hoarding expert, with fourteen years of experience working with people who hoard and those who care about them, training other professionals including Fire Departments, Police, First Responders, Physicians, community and hospital based Psychiatrists and more.
I mentor hoarding coalitions across Canada and around the world. I believe that no one ever accomplished anything difficult by feeling “less” about themselves. As a hoarding expert I have been covered in print, radio and television media. I was the initiator and coordinator of the first Canadian Hoarding Coalition in 2003 and Canadian National Hoarding Coalition in 2012. Among other accolades I served as a federal fundraiser for groundbreaking Canadian Hoarding research assisting with the production of the “No Room To Spare” program in 2006, was awarded two Nepean Police commendations while on MSW placement, and was a finalist for Businesswoman of the Year: Professional Category in 2012.
