About Shari Schreiber, M.A.
This website is dedicated to your empowerment, expansion and success. I am at heart, an educator~ so, much of the material you'll be reading on this site is very candid, straightforward and controversial. My hope is, you'll have an "Aha!" experience while you're visiting, and gain some headway with the challenges you might be facing.
I have always been committed to helping people learn how to repair themselves. As such, you will see GettinBetter Courses offered on this website, which can ease your pain and greatly enhance your life.
The unique perspectives and concepts you'll find on this site emanate directly from my personal life experiences, and are solely my own. These materials are not to be construed as being congruent with nor reflective of those maintained by the psychotherapeutic community, or any other group of professionals who offer psychological counseling. In short, this ain't your grandmother's therapy!
You'll acquire stellar insights from my self-help articles, but my consulting work has never dealt with mental exploration or analysis of your suffering! My unconventional, comprehensive approach has transformed clients' lives by teaching them how to heal and grow themselves. Each highly specific, yet simplistic tool (many of which are offered in my YouTube videos!) can eliminate obstacles that inhibit success, contentment and joy, so you're finally able to construct the kind of life you may have only dreamed was possible.
My book, DO YOU LOVE TO BE NEEDED, OR NEED TO BE LOVED? details how I helped clients heal their long-standing emotional pain. You might think of it as a primer on Codependency and the core trauma wounds that drive our unending compulsion to place the needs of others far ahead of our own. This addictive reflex prevents us from forging nourishing, healthy, reciprocal attachment bonds. You can order the softcover version (see the Amazon link on my home page), or download it as an e-book from Kindle.
Background Trivia: I returned to school at forty-one, and earned a Bachelor's degree in Human Behavior Psychology and a Master of Arts in Counseling Psych. I completed a six-year private practice Marriage and Family Therapy internship, and took both my state board exams. I chose to surrender my application for MFT licensure after a serious accident and accompanying injuries in 2007 made it impossible to retake my second test. This incident dramatically altered my career course~ but my passion to help people rebuild and restore themselves remained undaunted. Thus, I began teaching clients powerful self-worth building tools I'd invented for myself in my mid-twenties.
I have not worked as a state licensed clinician. Psychotherapy can be a lengthy a process, so I conceived and developed radically different methods that could resolve human pain far more quickly and permanently.
I attribute my wisdom and skill to acute intuition, courage and tenacity to surmount serious life challenges, and my fierce, unrelenting commitment to personal growth, emotional vibrancy and overall wellness. Regrettably, my return to academia did not expand nor enhance these gains.
My articles about Borderline Personality Disorder are an unintended consequence of working for over two decades with clients' key issues like poor self-worth, which contribute to and perpetuate all relationship difficulties. These materials may constitute the most insightful and comprehensive body of work you will ever read on the topic of BPD.
This website is NOT a support resource for people struggling with BPD! If you have this disorder or suspect that you might, please redirect yourself to alternative web content that may more closely reflect your own views and needs.
If you're trying to recover from a difficult relationship and you relate to my writings, it's thanks to the thousands who've bravely shared their painful stories with me. You're basically reading transcriptions of all those verbal accounts, and I hope they'll bring you relief, clarity and resolution.
As a BPD Survivor Member, you'll gain unlimited, lifetime access to my Borderline Personality Disorder pieces, for which this site has gained worldwide acclaim. Signing-up for a new membership is super-easy on each BPD article page. This could be the best ten bucks you've ever spent!
