Who is the coach?
Chris Rosenthal, M.S., LMHC, C.HT, Reiki Master and Co-Owner and Operator of Harmony Hill.
Chris left her full time private psychotherapy practice in Orlando, Florida to come to upstate New York to build a retreat center, which she opened in 2005. Working with couples is one of her specialties. She believes that we bring our old beliefs, past experiences, and learned behaviors into our present relationships. And the only way to live in the present is to heal and release what no longer serves us. She also believes that we communicate defensively or offensively rather than seeking to understand and assertively and authentically sharing our thoughts and feelings. Chris’ philosophy is that we each have the ability to change, to develop, to create, the lives we wish to live, and she knows that in that we have no limitations. All that is required is a willingness to want harmony over discord, respect over control, and compassion over chaos. Chris will assist couples in assessing and achieving their intentions.

“Chris took us through this journey [at the Couples Workshop Retreat] in the most calm and peaceful way. She made us feel unjudged and safe to share our experiences and feelings without having to share specific details of our relationship. We were given very specific tools to us in moving forward. Chris really understood where each of us were coming from, which hit home. Thank you so much, Chris, for the kindness and help.”
“This was a beautiful place that helped my wife and I create a plan and work towards a new beginning.”
“We really enjoyed ourselves at Harmony Hill Retreat with Chris. Chris is passionate about what she teaches and has great wisdom and knowledge about relationships. The weekend gave us an opportunity to spend some time learning and practicing new communication techniques to make our relationship stronger and healthier. It also allowed us to meet a few other couples and hear their stories, what worked and their challenges. Having a private yurt in the woods gave us some great, peaceful alone time and opportunity to sit by the fire at night and discuss all the things we had learned. We definitely recommend this retreat for couples looking to strengthen their relationship.”
– Lianne and Mike
“My husband and I have been married for almost ten years, and we have two young children. We had unfortunately settled into a routine of work, child-care, and a bit of a malaise, and were looking to bring our relationship to the next level. Thank goodness we found Chris and [the Couples Workshop Retreat].
At first, we were skeptical and concerned about privacy for a group couple’s retreat. But decided to take a leap of faith. The weekend we spent with Chris and the group was exceptional! When we arrived, the warmth and calmness from Chris made us feel at ease, and we instantly knew that Chris is someone we could trust. Her depth of knowledge and guidance has broadened our vision on relationship and life, and she provided tools that can immediately be put in place to achieve a better relationship with yourself, partner…or anyone. We are truly thankful for this unforgettable weekend!”
–Li and Michael D.

“We have been doing great ever since our sessions with you. We both took everything that you taught us and applied it in our daily life together, and the results have been excellent – our communication has improved tremendously. That, and the clarity that you gave us about our individual ‘issues’ has been very helpful to resolve old problems and help prevent new problems from cropping up.
We can only begin to thank you and we submit our deepest appreciation for all that you have imparted to us in such a deeply soulful, spiritual, and compassionate way – thank you, Teacher and Friend”

“We loved our experience at Harmony Hill. We were looking for a place that would allow us to do some individual soul searching a well as find ways to become more emotionally connected as a couple. Having been together for 17 years and looking to get married, this was especially important to us. As a lesbian couple, we didn’t think finding a place to go would be an issue, although we were actually turned down at one place because of being gay. Working with Chris is amazing.
She certainly understands that our desire to enrich our relationship transcends any lifestyle boundaries. Chris makes you feel instantly at ease and comfortable to begin working together. She has truly created a sanctuary of peace in the Catskills. Our chalet was nice and cozy and the surroundings were beautiful. We look forward to returning.”
— Shelly & Browning
“Dear Chris, thank you for a wonderful, eye opening experience this past weekend. We definitely will use a lot of the suggestions you gave us. It was great meeting you: our hours together just really flew; you are genuinely good at what you do. We connected to you pretty much immediately and felt at home and definitely comfortable opening up to you and chatting the way we did. We are gonna hang in there and use the tools we learned at Harmony Hill….”
— Fran & Ed
“Chris is hip, and a professional who knows her business well.”
— Debra & Jeff
“Dear Chris, the couples coaching retreat was just what we needed to take our relationship from boredom and complacency to a newfound excitement. Thanks. We’ll be back for more…”
— Jim & Cheryl
“…Dear Chris…we are back to our routine and we can’t stop thinking of the rich experience we’ve had at the Harmony Hill. We thank you for the precious learnings during our weekend at Harmony Hill. We are deeply grateful for your patience and your authenticity during the moments we spent with you at The Hill. We valued every discussion with you and we will apply the tools we learned in our daily interactions. Kind regards and best wishes….”

“I just wanted to say thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for helping us. I know me and my wife have a lot more healing to do and a lot of work to do, but we couldn’t have gotten this far with out you. Thank You.”
