AnnSchiebert_Post.jpg

 

Dr. Ann Schiebert, a psychologist in the Emergency Department (ED) at the medical center of one of America’s most respected major HMO's joins eHealth Radio and the Health News and Relationship Channels. Dr. Schiebert also works in the hospital and emergency department evaluating psych crisis patients.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Ann Schiebert discuss the following:

  1. You have said that what’s happening with the Coronavirus can have a very positive effect on relationships. What do you mean by that?
  2. How have you advised your patients to get through this pandemic when they are stuck inside with people who have been problematic to them?
  3. You do couples counseling. Do you see this time as an opportunity to heal romantic relationships that have somehow become distant?
  4. Many of us are living with “stay at home” orders from our government officials. Any creative ideas for activities that could have help family members bond together?
  5. Any thoughts about how to interact with kids who are accustomed to spending the day at school with their friends and who are now bored and irritated?

SUMMARY | HOT TIP: Use your “Coronavirus Lock-Down” time to mend relationships, to create fun activities, to solve problems and to find new ways to love each other.


Dr. Ann Schiebert is a psychologist in the Emergency Department (ED) at the medical center of one of the country’s most respected major HMO’s. There, she evaluates for safety, determines types of treatments, assesses capacity and cognitive impairment, and provides feedback and support for families of patients in the ED. In addition, Dr. Schiebert also works in the medical center’s Chemical Dependency Department where she treats patients challenged by trauma, chemical dependency, codependency and dual diagnosis.

Ann has an excellent success rate in helping families turn their situations around, and she is highly sought after for her work. She finds it rewarding to facilitate patients in discovering their wonderful, authentic selves, and getting them back to a healthy mindset.

Another of Dr. Schiebert’s area of expertise is helping people in unhappy romantic relationships investigate how they got in their current situation, how to reconsider the “path to romance,” and how to create happier long-term relationships. Ann is the host of Dr. Ann’s Relationship Radio Show on America’s Web Radio, which provides information and helps listeners create new ways of meeting relationship challenges.

Her teaching experience pertaining to Clinical Skills and Psychopathology during graduate school gave Ann an ability to interact with a variety of audiences and to be comfortable doing so. As a psychologist, she uses this “gift” to teach groups of between thirty and forty patients on the topics of communication, how to work a program of recovery and healthy relationships.

Ann has penned a series of books titled Let’s Make a Contract. She has four in the series thus far:

  • Getting Your Teen Through Substance Abuse
  • Getting Your Teen Through High School and Beyond
  • Getting Through Unhappy Romantic Relationships
  • Getting Your Teen Past the Opioid Epidemic

She’s been up close and personal to all of those matters in her own life. If she were a member of a tribe, her special role would be healer, and rightfully so.

In her spare time Ann enjoys traveling to Europe. She lives in the Bay Area with her husband and her two ragamuffin kittens, Biscuit and Teddy. She is the mother of three adult children.
