90-Minute Decision

Making Conversation

You’re in a relationship and need help thinking through an important decision. By the end of our 90-minute conversation, you’ll have a clear plan for moving forward.

Break Up

Planning Package

If you want to break up with your partner but need help with this difficult decision, let’s work together on a breakup plan.

Why should you invest in dating coaching? 

“Stop trying. Focus on yourself. You’ll find someone when you least expect it. It’s just a question of timing.”

You’ve probably heard this advice from a married friend or two, right? And it’s reasonable to think they know a thing or two about finding a partner. But as you go on date after date, enduring everything from the lackluster to the alarming, you may wish you could be proactive in your dating life. Sorry, helpful married friends, but not trying won’t get you very far.

Think of it this way. If you want to get stronger, you start exercising. Well, your heart is a muscle, too! And if you want to see big changes in your love life, you have to start training. Maybe you’re aware of your bad relationship habits, but don’t know how to go about replacing them with positive ones. Perhaps you’ve stayed up late swiping through profiles until there weren’t any left, trying to find the perfect match. You might feel like a broken record, complaining about your dating life to friends.

Let’s work together to help you find the fulfilling love and partnership that’s waiting for you.

TED Resident, Author, Dating Coach

I am a 2018 TED Resident, behavioral economics researcher, and dating coach.

My coaching style applies insights from behavioral economics to romantic relationships to help people find and build fulfilling partnerships.

I also guide clients through critical decision-making points in their relationships, including potential breakups.

I formerly ran the Irrational Lab, Google’s behavioral economics team, alongside Dan Ariely, author of Predictably Irrational.

I’m currently writing a book with Simon & Schuster on how to make better decisions in romantic relationships.

I work with Mating in Captivity author Esther Perel on a variety of projects. I also collaborate with relationship scientist Dr. John Gottman and The Gottman Institute on articles and a video series: The Emotional Bank Account and The Easiest Way to Improve Your Relationship.

I started the Talks at Google: Modern Romance series, where I interviewed world-renowned dating and relationship experts. I discussed monogamy and marriage with Dan Savage and Esther Perel and the secrets to a happy marriage with Drs. John and Julie Gottman.

I’ve written about dating and relationships for TIME, Thrive Global, PopSugar, The Forward, P.S. I Love You, and more. I was featured on several recent episodes of HBO’s VICE News Tonight about the #MeToo movement.

My TED talk, Designing For Love, will be posted in Winter 2018.
