Hoarding: The First Steps to Recovery
- Presented by Dr. Andrea Umbach, psychologist at Southeast Psych and Founder of the Charlotte Anxiety Consortium (www.drandreaumbach.com)

Hoarding stories are often fascinating to listen to or watch on television, however when you or a close friend is struggling with hoarding, you experience first hand the devastating effects. This session is appropriate for anyone who would like to better understand the serious impact of hoarding. Dr. Andrea Umbach, who specializes in the treatment of hoarding and anxiety disorders, is passionate about assisting others in their quest toward improved functioning by learning new skills and making positive changes in one’s life.
