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.”
