The Relationship Help Doctor, Rhoberta Shaler, PhD, provides urgent and ongoing care for relationships in crisis. Even the United States Marines have called on her for help!

As a relationship consultant, mediator, and speaker, Dr. Shaler particularly helps the partners, exes, and adult children of the relentlessly difficult people she calls "Hijackals®"  to save their sanity and stop the crazy-making. She defines Hijackals as "people who hijack relationships--for their own purposes--while relentlessly scavenging them for power, status, and control."

Rhoberta offers the insights, strategies, and support you need to reclaim hope, confidence--and your sanity--when dealing with the constant uncertainty and jaw-dropping behaviors of Hijackals in your life, at home and at work.  The author of sixteen books, including her new Hijackal ebook series, Escaping the Hijackal Trap: The Definitive Guide to Dealing with Relentlessly Difficult People, Dr. Shaler is the host of two popular podcasts:  Transforming Relationship with Emotional Savvy, and, Save Your Sanity! Help for Toxic Relationships
