Robbie is a great coach. She has a great ability to listen and help me identify what is
most important from all the ideas I bring to our coaching sessions. She is reassuring,
but also challenging when it is needed. I know I am much farther ahead in developing
my practice and pursing other goals than I would be if I weren’t working with her.

Dr. Robbie pulled me out of the rut I was in and helped me start over, taking my
personal life and my career in a whole new, exciting direction.

As a LAP-BAND® patient, I lost more than 100 lbs, and Dr. Robbie helped me
overcome the demons inside that nearly ruined my day-to-day activities of a "normal
existence". Even after the weight loss I felt like a fat person trapped in a thin person's body. Through meditation,
positive coaching and behavior modification, I am now able to look at myself in a completely different and more
positive light. She is a role model, and someone who I could relate to from the very beginning. Robbie's positive
attitude, and "been there, done that" approach made it so easy to open up to her. I learned that berating myself or
worrying about what other people (many that didn't even know me) thought of my physical being was destructive
behavior and not worry so much about others judging me. After many years of being miserable, I am happy to say
that "I enjoy living in my own skin and I am happy being me."

Dr. Robbie introduced me to a whole new relationship with food and weight. I am healthier, happier, and I like
myself better since working with her.

Dr. Roberta Maller Hartman (Robbie to me) was a warm and wonderful coach who really helped me to get motivated
on a variety of professional matters. Robbie really knows how to ask the hard questions in a kind and loving way
that gets to the heart of the issues at hand. She is persistent and dedicated, helping a client to reach down into the
hardest places to find new solutions. Working with Robbie was a very positive and profitable experience for me, one
that has provided the kind of down to earth help that therapy often fails at. I recommend her without reservation.
