I am Dr. Kristen

Guillory

Hey Hey Heeeey!!

I have such a heart for men and am so excited to host this ONE OF A KIND RETREAT experience just for you!

You Ready for Colombia!

I've been supporting men in some way for the last 20+ years! From the majority of the participants in my youth program being boys to my dissertation being on the school completion and drop out among Black men, to being the first woman speaker in many male spaces, to working with college male athletes to being able to support, mentor and coach some of the most amazing men, I’ve been honored. I hosted the first Candid Conversations in Oct 2016 and decided to bring it back! And then decided to expand it to a retreat experience!​

to learn more about Dr. Guillory

Candid Conversations Men's Retreat has been a game changer for me. It thought that I was not alone in dealing with the everyday adversities of life. It also gave me the confidence to go after something that I was putting off for the longest. Now I feel a free. I still have a lot of work to do but this experience put me in the right track.
