My husband and I have been seeing Karen Bryant for several months. She is an amazing counselor, who listens to, engages and empathizes with the couple. Ms. Bryant has done an extraordinary job of guiding us, as well as providing us with the tools we need to improve our communication skills. Her extensive training and professional experience is evident in the sessions we have had. Without a doubt, we highly recommend Ms. Bryant.

This was a wonderful and enlightening experience. The Have and to Hold conference was amazing and gave tangible tools to use as soon as you leave his presence. Chris gave real world experiences, examples and personal anecdotes that allowed me to feel as though the reservations and issues that I wanted to solve within myself and my relationship was easy to approach. I gave tickets as a anniversary gift to a friend and watched in real time as his direction helped to progressive heal her in front of my eyes. I will forever be grateful for this experience as I know I will watch their previously damaged relationship now continue to flourish. Thank you so much Chris!! 😁

My husband and I really enjoyed the retreat last Saturday. It was so amazing to see in one place during the course of one day how Chris could show us what it takes to ensure how anyone can have a deeply satisfying marriage. No one contemplating marriage, or even just dating, should miss out on this.

Chris is a dedicated professional who cares about his craft. He delivers therapeutic services in a non judgmental manner and made us feel welcome throughout the entire process. I would definitely recommend Chris if you are seeking a well trained and personable professional who can assist you with navigating your relationship. He has worked wonders for ours, and will continue to be apart of our team as we navigate the challenges thrown at us through life.

5 stars!! Chris Matthews is the best of the best. I’m not one to leave reviews but just wanted to express my admiration and gratitude towards Chris Matthews and the Have and to Hold Retreat. My partner and I left smiling and had great conversation in the car ride home and long into the evening. There is much to gain from this retreat , but my favorites were obtaining the blue print of our own personal relationship needs, wants, and expectations as well as interacting with other couples and hearing their stories.Chris is phenomenally skillful in also leading great conversations throughout this retreat,Many enter into relationships and marriages thinking they’ve discussed these things above, thinking they don’t need to do a retreat or pre marital counseling, speaking from experience, do it right the first time, invest in your relationship and marriage this is something you want to last a lifetime remember. I promise you, attending this retreat will save you money in the long run as well as hopefully give you peace of mind, as it did us, as you will learn a lot about yourself and your partner and how to navigate the journey ahead Thank you for this experience.
