You Deserve a Life Full of Love
Authentic connection, built on love, respect, friendship, and fun, is one of the cornerstones of a happy, fulfilling life. But, as you well know if you've been on the dating scene for any length of time, the actual process of finding that special person and then creating a high-quality relationship can be challenging.
The modern dating scene can be difficult to navigate, and fraught with obstacles. Should you be looking for love through online dating sites, or through in-person opportunities? When you meet someone promising, how do you cultivate chemistry and connection and turn first dates into seconds? How do you attract the type of person you're looking for, (and stop attracting the wrong types of people?) How do you handle the “ghosts,” “zombies,” and “breadcrumbers” you might find along the way?
But most importantly, how do you nurture and grow the type of healthy, long-term connection that you're longing for, without wasting months or years of your life going down disappointing dead ends?
Good news: You don't have to figure all of these things out on your own. With a professional dating coach by your side, you can navigate all of these potential pitfalls with confidence and style.
Here's the Secret: Dating is a “Growth Opportunity.”
At Growing Self, our approach to dating coaching is a little different. We don't just help you pull together your online dating profile, teach you how to “converse charismatically,” increase your attractor-factors, and spot relationship warning signs quickly so that you can get better results. Though we do all that and more, we take things a little deeper because our dating coaches are also relationship experts with training and experience as couples counselors and therapists.
We believe that you have an amazing opportunity to learn about yourself, and evolve as a person on your quest for true love. We'll help you identify your old patterns in relationships and any inner obstacles that may be getting in your way, so that you can be your very best self in a healthy new relationship — and get the love, respect and commitment that you deserve.
Unique Insight & Experience
In June of 2014, our founder Dr. Lisa Marie Bobby was one of only nine relationship experts from around the country invited to attend the first ever Match.com “Relationship Experts Summit.” There she was given in-depth insight into the modern dating research and strategy that she passed on to all the dating coaches of Growing Self.

We stay on top of the latest trends in dating, including research into how the dating game is evolving, best practices in current online dating platforms, and the strategies that will help you succeed in love.
