Counseling for Over-shopping and Over-spending

I had been struggling with my demons (shoplifting, overshopping, and hoarding) for years and it has taken a terrible toll on my physical and emotional health, family, relationships, work and home. I contacted Terry after I had dug myself into a hole yet again and found him to be empathic, knowledgable, and understanding. At the same time, Terry lay ground rules and never let me minimize or deny the frightening consequences that these addictions, if left unchecked, will inevitably have. I found Terry's three month program to be of immense value. Thank you Terry for helping me to uncover a healthier self and a healthier life. This is not a battle I could have fought on my own. --Laura from Illinois


Terry,
Thanks for working with my parents on their hoarding issues. They seem to finally be working as a team. Never thought I would see that happen.
-- E.S., Iowa


I counseled by phone with Terry over a year ago during a very rough time in my marriage. I had been overshopping and hoarding for nearly a decade and my husband was at his wit's end! I had tried local counseling but it helped very little. Terry helped me and my husband come together as a team and I finally got the courage to stand up for myself and regain my inner confidence along the way. At the end of our 3-months of therapy, I had not only made a major impact on decluttering but also in improving my marriage and in understanding the origins of my overshopping and hoarding and rebuilding my self-esteem. Thanks Terry! -- Cindy, Pennsylvania


Hi Terry,
I have been working very hard on my recovery and I am doing well since I successfully completed your course. Things are starting to look up for me and I just want to say thank you again for your wisdom, help and concern for me. I don't think I would have gotten into recovery without your kindness and understanding of this devastating disease. I just can't thank you enough for helping me to see how my family-of-origin stuff was keeping me stuck in this addiction. I am so grateful for the support I got from you just when I needed it most. I have found a more peaceful, kind way of living. You have a lot of talent and gifts you have to share with others.
Thank you again! Fondly, -- Barbara—Pennsylvania


Dear Terry, 
I think your particular "gift" may be the ability to make each client feel like they are the only client you have. I think, perhaps, the greatest compliment I can give you is to tell you "I feel like I'm coming back to life." Thank you. I know you go above and beyond!"  -- G.Z, Kentucky


Dear Terry,
Thank you so much for helping my brother with his hoarding disorder. I also learned a lot from working with you and him during our weekly Skype sessions. He made great progress in 3 months and I am hopeful he will continue working to declutter his home, keep it that way, and move forward with his life. --P.R. --New York
