Dr. Rhoberta Shaler

Rhoberta Shaler Passed Away April 2th 2024. She was a dear friend and she will be missed.

As a relationship consultant, mediator, speaker and author, Dr. Rhoberta Shaler, The Relationship Help Doctor, provides urgent and ongoing care for relationships in crisis at home and at work.  Her mission is to help people stop tolerating abuse. Even the United States Marines have sought her help!

Dr. Shaler particularly helps the partners, exes, and adult children of the relentlessly difficult, toxic people she calls “Hijackals®.” She helps them 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.  “All Hijackals drink from the same pool of traits,” she says, “whether they have a diagnosis of narcissist, borderline, sociopath, psychopath, histrionic, or avoidant.”

Rhoberta offers the insights, strategies, and support needed to reclaim hope, confidence–and your sanity–when dealing with the constant uncertainty and jaw-dropping behaviors of Hijackals in life, at home and at work.  She is the author of sixteen books, including her new Hijackal ebook series, Escaping the Hijackal Trap: The Definitive Guide to Dealing with Relentlessly Difficult People, available at Amazon.

Author of sixteen books including Escaping the Hijackal Trap and Stop! That’s Crazy-Making! How to Stop Playing the Passive-Aggressive Game.  She is the host of two podcasts, Emotional Savvy: The Relationship Help Show, and Save Your Sanity: Help for Handling Hijackals® at
