Nicole has to clean out her closet to clean up her act, Dr. Robin says. For starters, Dr. Robin suggests that she sell all her "must-haves" and use the money to help pay off her debt. "You begin to build a life on a real foundation of a real life of a real human being and a real person," Dr. Robin tells Nicole. "And I know that's scary because that is like telling someone who has an alcohol problem, 'Stop drinking.'"
Dr. Robin says Nicole will also have to stop using her material possessions to gain acceptance. "You're going to have to get a new tape in your mind that says, 'I don't want to be around people who don't want me for who I am,'" Dr. Robin says.
