About Shari Schreiber, M.A.
This website is dedicated to your empowerment, expansion and success. I am at heart, an educator and convention defier. All my writings are candid, straightforward and controversial. They're designed to help you manage any challenges you may be facing. My GettinBetter Courses are intended to ease your pain and enhance your daily existence.
The unique perspectives and concepts you'll find here, are solely my own. They are not to be construed as being congruent with nor reflective of those held by the psychotherapeutic community, nor any other group of professionals who offer "psychological" counseling.
My self-help articles offer stellar insights, but my consulting work regards mental analysis of your suffering a waste of time and precious resources! My unconventional approach has transformed clients' lives by teaching them how to heal and grow themselves. My highly specific, yet simplistic tools (many of which are offered in my YouTube videos) can eliminate obstacles that inhibit success, contentment and happiness.
My book, DO YOU LOVE TO BE NEEDED, OR NEED TO BE LOVED? was written for psychotherapists. It probes the narcissistic aspects of Codependency from its inception onward. Infancy neglect spawns our compulsion to always put the feelings and needs of others ahead of our own. This addictive reflex blocks us from forging nourishing, healthy, reciprocal attachments.

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 surrendered my application for MFT licensure after a serious accident and accompanying injuries in 2007 made it impossible to retake my second test. This incident changed my career course~ but I remained passionate about helping people rebuild and restore themselves. Thus, I began teaching clients powerful self-worth building tools I'd invented for myself in my late-twenties.
I have not worked as a state licensed clinician. Psychotherapy can be too lengthy a process, so I developed novel methods that can resolve one's pain far more quickly.
I attribute my healing abilities to acute intuition, courage and tenacity to surmount various challenges, and my unrelenting commitment to personal growth, emotional vibrancy and overall wellness. My formal schooling did not contribute to, nor enhance these gains.
My articles on Borderline Personality Disorder sprang from working with clients' key issues like poor self-worth, which are central to all relationship difficulties. This material may constitute the most insightful, comprehensive insights you will ever read on the topic of BPD. If you're trying to recover from a toxic bond and you relate to my articles and forums, it's thanks to the thousands who've bravely shared their painful stories with me. You're reading transcriptions of all those verbal accounts in my articles, and I hope they'll bring you some clarity and relief.
