Our Testimonals

​“The Hold Me Tight Workshop was undoubtedly one of the most productive weekends my wife and I have had in our relationship together.

Not exactly knowing what to expect, I entered the weekend a bit skeptical and concerned that this wouldn’t be for us. By the end of the first day, I felt closer to my wife than I have in the past 10 years. While the workshop took honesty and a certain amount of willingness to trust the proposed model, it was presented in a supportive and safe environment with the appropriate amount of guidance. We really loved the engaging, nurturing, and devoted attitudes of Dana and Jodi.

The entire weekend presented us a safe place to explore our connections and find ways to strengthen our bonds and heal old wounds. It allowed both of us to identify and share with each other the deeper emotions behind our surface actions. We both feel like we now have an excellent foundation to continue moving forward in our marriage.

We very strongly recommend this workshop for any and all couples. What a great weekend!”

“I left the weekend with a renewed sense of hope and investment in my relationship. Hold Me Tight was relationship changing. After years of slowly disconnecting, my husband and I had difficulty communicating and lacked real intimacy.

Hold Me Tight provided us with a new understanding of where we are, how we got here, and what happens to us when things feel bad. We both left the weekend finally feeling seen and understood, and most importantly, we felt reconnected. Dana and Jodi are amazing and I am confident that part of our experience was the direct result of their guidance and intervention.

This is a must for every couple! “

“This is a must for every couple! We learned more during this workshop than we have in 13 years of marriage with 3 other counselors. I see my husband in a loving way again and have an understanding that he loves me.

I have a renewed sense of hope and looking forward to investing in our relationship. I feel like we are teammates again!”

“If you are considering coming to one of Dana’s workshops, stop considering and just come! I believe our marriage was saved from the work we did over the weekend. We’ve had therapy using this model, but spending a weekend focusing in was much more powerful.”

“Prior to this workshop, my wife and I felt that there was nothing that could repair the damage we had inflicted on each other and we were resigned to giving up and ending our marriage. We booked the workshop as a final chance for us to save our marriage and I think neither of us felt much hope for the workshop going in. In the training, my wife and I learned more about each other and connected more than we have in five years. Now we both have hope that we can start repairing and save our family. Thank you so much for helping us.”

“I walked into this workshop very skeptical that it could or would help to heal what I thought was a dead relationship. I thought we were too far gone to be saved. As I sit on the other side of this workshop, I am astounded at the huge impact this process has had on our relationship. I am walking out with a new hope that our relationship will not only survive, but blossom and thrive. I am walking out feeling safe, connected and loved.”

“When I first heard about the workshop I was skeptical to and in somewhat denial about how it would impact my relationship. This is NOT a typical touchy/feely workshop. It provides you with the tools to recognize the breakdowns (barriers) in your relationship w/your partner and how to overcome them. It helped me see that what I was going through is not abnormal, in fact, that we are more like other couples than we think! I would recommend this workshop for any couple hoping or wanting to feel more connected to their partner emotionally.”

“Absolutely come in and do it. I can’t even begin to describe how helpful it is. This was a great workshop that helped me understand my spouse, myself, and our relationship better. It gave us great knowledge and understanding of what drove our problems and tools to help ourselves. We wish we had taken this course when we were dating so we could have reached a higher relationship level earlier.”

“I’ve always heard about communication and how important it was. This weekend has helped bring that into perspective and break it down as well as apply it. The counselors were amazing at helping at difficult times and getting us back on track. This has most definitely made a long lasting impact on our marriage. Very comfortable setting!”
