Client Testimonials

Dr. Frankie’s coaching has helped me define what I am really looking for in a life partner.

“I received coaching from Dr. Frankie over the past few months and being that I’m not someone who generally asks for advice, that’s saying something. I couldn’t be happier with the time I received from Dr. Frankie, filled with her thoughtful insight, understanding nature, and encouraging ways. She also gave me excellent advice and tips, even when I wished she was wrong, but knew she was right. The thing about Dr. Frankie is, not only is she intelligent and qualified, she is also invested and caring and you never feel like she’s watching the clock. She genuinely cares for you as a person, and if for no other reason, that’s why you can trust her in such personal endeavors as coaching, matchmaking, or any of her services. I would recommend Dr. Frankie to anyone reading this as well as my closest friends. And if all of this hasn’t convinced you, I met the love of my life two weeks into my coaching sessions with Dr. Frankie and we’ve been dating for almost 2 months now. Is Dr. Frankie directly responsible, probably not, but did she help? Definitely. And I know she can help you too.”

– Alex, Songwriter

“Hey Dr. Frankie! Thank you again for our very productive sessions! You’ve more than exceeded my expectations for what I wanted to accomplish. I’ve gone from feeling uncertain and ambivalent about the role of a romantic relationship in my life, to getting clarity on what I really want, and a forward plan to get it. I’m looking forward to taking the next steps in my relationship journey, and I am very glad that you can continue to be a valued resource for me.”

– Alexandra, Program Manager

“I have always been shy and dating was an anxiety-provoking nightmare for me. After a few coaching sessions with Dr. Frankie she gave me simple, focused dating tips that helped me find my boyfriend. We’ve been together now for over a year and I’ve never been happier. I enthusiastically recommend Dr. Frankie Coaching services to anyone in need of a little extra guidance and support”

“I really enjoyed working with Dr. Frankie because she’s so energetic and passionate about helping people find happiness.”

– Jill, Marketing Executive

“I met Dr. Frankie in an unlikely place for me–a bar. My friend and I just happened to be looking in as we were walking in an Oakland neighborhood. Dr. Frankie came up to us and asked whether we would like to participate in speed dating. She was friendly, enthusiastic, and warm, but not pushy. While I couldn’t join the speed dating event that night, I got an immediate good feeling from Dr. Frankie. After trying the online dating scene for some time and not knowing how to approach dating after the end of a long-term relationship, I contacted Dr. Frankie and began working with her as a dating coach. She is positive, upbeat, and has many practical and useful tips for meeting women. I also find her background as a psychologist a definite plus to working with her. She has very good insight, and I felt like she “got” me very quickly, and so can tailor our sessions to work with my unique needs.”

– Meredith, Statistical Analyst

“People come in and out of your life and some people make a special lasting impression on you. Dr. Frankie or Hitch is one of those people who will make a big difference in your life. Hitch has been my dating coach for over four months now. I am a shy, overachieving nerd who has trouble setting boundaries and of course been looking for love in the wrong places. Hitch has made a positive impact on my life by giving me a makeover (yes, I look cooler), increased my confidence, balancing my work and personal life and of course gives me advice on how to approach the girls. I am most proud to say that Hitch has taught me about life and friendship because I know that hitch is also my friend.”

– Dara, Pharmacist

“Dr. Frankie’s coaching has helped me define what I am really looking for in a life partner. Through her sessions I have gained the confidence to venture back out into the dating world. If you are ready to jump start your love life towards a more positive path and to stop repeating past decisions that have not served your best self, invest in the coaching series Dr. Frankie offers.”

– Stacy, Real Estate Broker

“My dating experiences pre and post working with Frankie are like night and day – huge improvement! She helped me identity the patterns that were making it difficult for me to connect with the kind of women I want to meet and provided specific recommendations for breaking out of those patterns. She challenged me to step out of my comfort zone, gave insightful feedback, and was always responsive to requests for additional information on the topics we were covering. The best part was that working with Frankie was an absolute pleasure! I looked forward to each session because engaging with Frankie always felt comfortable and energizing, even when we were talking about highly sensitive or difficult issues.”

– Lynn, Financial Manager

“I am living proof that Dr. Frankie and her relationship coaching skills are a tremendous asset to our LGBT community. Dr. Frankie is someone who truly cares about the happiness and well being of her clients. She impressed me immediately with her ability to connect with me and as a result provided me with insight that truly resonated. Dr. Frankie is thoughtful, empathic, and most importantly non-judgemental. She was able to meet me on my level and responded in a warm and healing way. She took the time to really understand the issues I brought up, even if it occasionally meant going beyond my 50 minute session. I have recommended Dr. Frankie to several of my closest friends, and I recommend her to you without hesitation!”

– Maya, Marketing Executive

“My meeting with Dr. Frankie was fun and enlightening. I felt as though I was talking to a dear friend I hadn’t seen in years. She asked lot’s of relevant questions about who I am and what I’m looking for in a partner. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience and I got a few great dating pointers, too. Thanks for being Dr. Frankie!”

– Alicia, Accountant

“Dr. Frankie was a great step in kick-starting my dating. She has been really helpful in getting clarity around what is important to me in a partner and in becoming aware of old dating patterns that may have been keeping me from the relationship I want.”

– Barrett, Lobbyist

“Dr. Frankie’s compassion, strength of character, and professional acumen created a holding environment that allowed me to be open about my struggle with relationships and to explore different approaches to old patterns. Thank you for your support and encouragement Dr. Frankie!”

– Amanda, Psychotherapist

“Dr. Frankie has impeccable judgement and listens well. She is genuinley interested in her clients’ happiness and has offered great advice. I never take advice blindly but everything that Dr. Frankie has recommended for dating and relationships has turned out to be spot on. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommending Dr. Frankie.”

– Nicole, Web Designer 

“Lots of folks go to Frankie for help finding The One. I actually went to her for help getting an old flame who was clearly NOT The One out of my mind. Frankie listened to my tale of woe with patience, compassion and humor, and then used a combination of talk therapy and practical suggestions to help me let go of a story I had been telling myself for years. I had tried a lot of things before, to little effect, and in just a few sessions with Frankie I made tremendous progress in clearing my emotional slate.”
