Early on in her career, Marla determined that there was a single, common problem that nearly everyone experiences. This problem is the primary cause of difficulties in interpersonal relationships. In almost all relationships problems you will hear the parties involved say we don’t communicate. There is no such thing as not communicating, what they mean is we don’t have a proven method of resolving differences and arriving at solutions. The main communication problem is lack of skills and training.
The skills that Gale teaches her clients are not taught in school. Most people learn about relationships from their parents and, in a vast number of cases, these skills are non-existant or totally wrong. In order to reach a larger audience with her knowledge and be able to, in practical and simple terms, convey the methods she teaches her clients, Dirty Dishes and Other War Stories.

Literally, thousands of Gale’s clients have used her training to drastically improve their lives in dealing with their friends and loved one’s whether at home or in the workplace. She is a strong believer that, if you always do what you’ve alway’s done, then you will always get what you alway’s got!
