Great podcast!

Great Episode- clear, straight forward and to the point. Down to earth, practical tell-tale signs as to how to identify a “highjackal”, as well as how to deal with one. Lots to learn- definitely worth a listen.

Great approach to sensitive topics

I am a fan of Dr. Shaler's show as she knows how to help her audience dead with sensitive issues that are seen far too often. Her guidance is an inspiration that no matter what their circumstances are, they can get through it. Highly recommend!
