How to Meet Great People For Dating or Decades of Friendship.
In this workshop I teach three strategies that are as relevant for a parent making new friends as it is for a single person attempting dating for the first time in years.
Each strategy has a hands on component to it that is practiced in pairs and discussed as a large group. The workshop lasts about one hour, and can be modified to fit various time frames and group sizes.
Connectivity: An Experiment in Pairing Strangers
How do we bond with people? How important is choice in forming healthy new bonds? These are some of the intense questions we tackle in this experimental workshop in which everyone is put into a pair with someone they don’t know well. We go through exercises to increase closeness to our random buddy, and then reconvene as a whole group to examine the trajectory of assigned matches. We discuss the nature of pair bonding, the benefits and challenges of copious choices.
How Understanding Your Bias Gets You Great Relationships
In this workshop we’ll examine the nature of bias, and do some personal reflection and interactive exercises looking at our own biases. With a strong mindfulness component, this workshop is great for anyone who has been on either end of allowing their bias to prevent them from having greater connection.

About Me and Story of Love Leaf Coaching
My name is Regina and I am a dating and friendship coach because I DO believe that anyone can learn to start enjoyable, long lasting friendships and romances...if they REALLY want it.
I also believe that a lot of mainstream attitudes about romance and widespread intergenerational trauma prevents many of us from creating rewarding relationships. I majored in sociology and I continue to educate myself about love and relationships from a social context through books, workshops and being in relationship with beautiful, diverse people.
I have been lucky to support myself as a part-time or full-time dating & friendship coach since 2014, and my side hustles draw on my earliest career: public school teaching. I’m in a 19 year loving partnership and I had a handful of sweet friends as a child, but my friendship and flirting really bloomed for me in my 30s.
The transition from teaching in public school to teaching social skills to adults via coaching started when I got into a severe car accident while teaching English in Thailand in 2014. I had already been questioning my teaching path after five stressful teaching years in California, and being in one of Thailand's many vehicle crashes woke me up. Additionally I had been hosted by a Couchsurfer in Thailand reconciling her breakup with an American, and I realized that my intercultural relationship skills could be of use to others (my partner is Vietnamese-American).
Originally conceived as Breakup Breakthrough, my coaching practice brought me to coaching clients from four continents with an age span of 23-76. Since then I’ve become a master at helping folks balance self love and self reflection, while understanding how to utilize and resist the forces of culture, economics, politics and media in their personal relationships.
