Q: Hey, Francesca. What are your credentials?



I started my business in 2013, starting off as a matchmaker and transitioning to coaching exclusively about 7 years ago.

I’ve trained with Paul C. Brunson (I was previously the lead matchmaker and coach for agency), completed the The Art of Becoming a Coach program with the amazing coach and teacher Hillary Rubin and I received my matchmaking certification from The Matchmaking Institute (yes, it’s a real place!). Datingadvice.com named me one of NYC’s 12 Best Matchmakers, and I won a U.S. Dating Award for Dating Expert of the Year 2016.

I’ve also worked as an adjunct coach for UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business. I have a B.S. from Syracuse University and a J.D. from The University of Michigan Law School.

Nearest to my heart are the hundreds of clients I’ve had the privilege to work with one-on-one. Indirectly I’ve spoken to millions via The Huffington Post, the Today Show, Match.com, SiriusXM Radio, my own podcast Dear Franny, as well as numerous other publications and media outlets.

Prior to my love career, I was a corporate lawyer for over a decade, as well as an avid dater! And I appeared on two seasons of the reality TV show Survivor. (Crazy, I know!)

Q: What kinds of clients do you work with?

Motivated ones! Typically my love clients are badass single women, but not exclusively. I’ve worked with men who’ve met their future wives while we worked together! My life coaching clients are also badasses, but their relationship status and gender is more diverse.

Q: What kinds of results do your clients get?

One of the very first things my clients and I do together is set goals for what they want to accomplish from us working together. Results vary because goals vary, but I can tell you they range from feeling excited and knowledgable about dating to get into a committed relationship to finally starting my business.

In terms of goal setting, I’m committed to setting my clients up to win and they do!

Q: How do I know if love coaching is right for me?

Love coaching is a good option for you if you can relate to feeling any of the following, AND you’re ready to do something about it.

  • I worry I’m going to be single forever, and at this point it’s getting embarrassing or feeling hopeless

  • I don’t feel desirable to the kinds of people I want to be with

  • Did I blow my one chance at love?

  • I have no idea what I’m doing wrong — maybe I’m doomed to die alone?

  • I keep attracting the same [frustrating dating experience] over and over and I don’t know how to break the cycle

  • I have zero idea how to date!

  • People tell me I’m too intimidating or successful to find love

  • At this point, I think I’m too set in my ways to find love

  • All the good ones are taken — it’d take a miracle for me to meet someone without settling

  • The ones I like don’t like me and the ones who do like me I’m not interested in

  • I’m scared of being rejected

  • Online dating doesn’t work for me

If this resonates with you, I invite you to schedule a no-strings attached free session with me to see if we’re a good fit to work together.

Q: How do I know if life coaching is for me?

In my opinion, life coaching is for everyone! But typically now is a good time for you to consider life coaching if you’re feeling challenged by any of the following:

  • Motivation to follow through on your goals or plans

  • Struggling with self esteem and feeling worthy

  • Finding your right career or business

  • Communication challenges

  • Self defeating behavior and negative self talk

  • Building and maintaining (non-romantic) relationships

  • Work/life balance

  • Decision making

  • Being your authentic self

Q: What if I’m interested in both life and love coaching?

Love coaching is essentially life coaching with a focus on finding your person. Which is to say, life coaching is “included” in love coaching.

Q: How is coaching different than therapy?

No shade to therapy, which can be a powerful tool and can vary greatly in style of therapy and skill of therapist. BUT as a general rule, working with me is very much about setting goals and then putting in the work to achieve those goals, whereas traditional talk therapy is more focused on understanding and resolving your past.

If you’re trying to decide between coaching and therapy, a helpful question might be: Am I more focused on understanding what in my past has caused me to struggle with this, OR am I more focused on taking action towards overcoming this struggle? 

If your answer is the former, therapy might be a better option. If it’s the latter, then I recommend coaching.

As an FYI — I have many clients who either come to coaching after years of therapy, or work with me and a therapist simultaneously. I’ve even been recommended to some clients by their therapists.
