THOUGHTS ON PRIVATE SESSIONS to help you Resolve Relationship Problems within yourself, with others at home and at work....
Sometimes we tend to think of working with a professional as a last resort, the place we go that shows the problem is bigger than our skill set and that somehow we have failed.
I have a different view.
I think wise people, ones who know what they want and are focused on creating the best life, relationships and business success possible, naturally get help the moment they know they need it. Classes and Consulting are that kind of help.
I am Dr. Rhoberta Shaler and I’ve been working with folks like you for more than twenty-five years. Helping individuals, couples and families get the insights, skills and strategies they need to create the life and relationships they most want is what lights my fire.
Everyone has obstacles, fears, scripts and blind spots!
It’s whether or not you work through them that makes all the difference to the quality of your life.
I’m thankful you’re getting the word out, Dr. Shaler! It has made a life-changing difference for me.
Thank you Dr Shaler and may i just say, thank you for your work and your writings. You may have no idea just how much of a lifeline i have been thrown just by finding you and now your group.

As foretold, my ex got busy trying to engage me on Christmas Day. Thank you, Dr. Shaler for the heads up. Because of this page and your help, I was able to have a wonderful Christmas and not get sucked in ! That’s progress.
I thought I may never have this freedom, I actually felt very little when he tried to pull me in. Thank You THANK You ?
The help and information you share makes me feel I can breathe again. I am not alone in this. Thank you.
Chilled my bones when she said about trying to get you pregnant as means of control! Once I was pregnant (with twins), I suddenly felt terrifyingly trapped and it only dawned on me then.
I thought of you many times over the last period of time.
I want to express my thank you to you as you helped me very much in a period of time that was difficult for me and when I had no knowledge nor methods to overcome them alone.
Further more, I’ve read some of your books and conversations with y…
Coming from a non-functional childhood, being able to learn healthy relationship skills and techniques allows me to feel confident in myself as I grow. Thank you, Rhoberta, for your openness, skilll, and kindness throughout the program. I am confident the skills I have learned will make me a better …
That’s why I only work with people who are ready to see through, think through and work through the obstacles and fears, scripts and blind spots that will allow them to flourish, to experience the life, love and livelihood they long for.
…and, geography is no obstacle to us working together.
Wherever you may live, the magic of Zoom private video conferencing puts us together, instantly.
Relationship sessions and small-group coaching are easily done via web-based video in my private conference “room”. All you need is a computer with a camera (or even a smartphone) and you’re ready to step into my office from anywhere in the world.
"I am a Life Mechanic."
I’ve got a number of eBooks you may find helpful.
Years ago, I was in the habit of going to a particular watering hole each Friday after work to meet with colleagues and friends. Although I’m allergic to alcohol, it was a wonderful community of professionals who enjoyed the Friday late afternoon rituals of gathering, talking and preparing for the weekend.
New people would drift through and stop to chat. Of course, one of the first questions a man would ask me is
“What do you do?” (It was after the ‘What is your sign?” era…lol)
I quickly learned that mentioning my work at that time, as a therapist, caused most to put their hands over their faces and say,
“Don’t read me. Don’t figure me out!” in mock horror.
So, I learned to have conversations like this:
“What do you do when your car breaks down?”
“I take it to the shop.”
“Why do you take it to the shop?”
“Because I don’t know how to fix it myself. The guys there, that’s all they do, so they are the experts and I don’t have to be.”
“So, you know the value of a mechanic.”
“Great, then. The answer to “What do I do?” is that I am a life mechanic!”
This seemed quite acceptable as well as logical. I think it is true for everyone. And, we all know that it is better to take our cars to the shop at the first sign of a clunk or rattle than to wait until we’re completely unable to move in a dangerous part of town late at night!
