About Julianne Cantarella

Hello, I am Julianne Cantarella, Dating Coach and Matchmaker. I specialize in helping singles over 40 navigate the modern dating world. My entire professional life has been dedicated to helping people:

Helping people recognize that there is hope
Helping people create change
Helping people attract LOVE

I began my professional journey as a Social Worker, MSW therapist positively impacting people’s lives through coaching and counseling for over 10 years. The experience of working with people through the most challenging events in their lives, has taught me how to gently and purposefully move people towards change, allowing them to realize their life goals. As I moved through my career as a therapist, I came upon a unique opportunity where I could utilize my education, work experience and continue helping others; Date Coaching and Matchmaking.

In 2005 I began working for a Professional Matchmaking Company in Manhattan. This career transition allowed me to incorporate the people skills and networking experiences I learned as a Social Worker, while helping people move towards their heart’s desire. I gained great pleasure and satisfaction coaching singles into successful relationships or matching them with their life partners. With this new passion ignited within me, I knew I had found my life’s work.

As I continued to grow in my new found profession, I began to recognize that singles over 40 were under served in the dating world. I went to work honing my skills and focusing on this unique population. My experience as a professional listener has allowed me to notice recurring pattern in many of my clients’ dating histories. I am able to offer them my observations and insights; helping them to find happier, healthier, and more fulfilling relationships. By researching and working exclusively with singles over 40, I have become well- versed in the “Art of Courtship” and Matchmaking.

My passion and dedication to the unique dating needs of singles over 40 led me to create my own Date Coaching & Matchmaking company entitled “The Courtship Coach”. The formation of “The Courtship Coach” was born from my desire to assist singles over 40 find someone wonderful to love. I am confident that my expertise and personalized approach will allow you to create the relationship you desire and deserve.

Single men

I am very pleased with the advice Julianne has given me. I was searching for help and guidance in my dating life, I am divorced and have not dated since I was 22. I lacked knowledge and direction and she was happy to help me. Julianne has the experience and expertise to help anyone who does not have the confidence, knowledge or courage to explore the dating world alone. I would recommend Julianne as a “Courtship Coach” 100% to friends, family or anyone who wants to date confidently and find their true soul mate.

Prior to working with Julianne, I would ask friends or family for advice on certain dating situations. The advice I received from them always seemed subjective and difficult for friends and family to “get” what actually goes on in the world of dating these days. Working with Julianne has been very refreshing because she “gets it”. She has a very loving, caring and supportive style yet is very candid and honest in her approach. She is approachable, available, a fantastic listener and pays close attention to the details. She always takes the time to get you prepared for a date and follows-up the day after. She is sincerely concerned how each date went, how relationships progress and for your success. Julianne shares her knowledge to the point where I am able to remind myself of the things she has coached me on and it has helped in the dating process. Julianne is cheerleader and always encourages me to stay hopeful.

With Julianne’s advice and guidance, I now have a positive outlook on dating during my 40s. From choosing the right photo or writing a profile that truly reflects me. Julianne’s coaching and support has helped me take control of my dating experience and eventually helped me find a great guy whom I’m currently dating!

I had stopped dating for years and focused on my career after the death of my fiancé. Deciding to date again, I learned about Julianne, who has guided me through the maze of on-line dating sites and singles events, she has revitalized my dating life. She encouraged me to leave my comfort zone and go to singles events, and she polish my on-line presence. The results have been a lot more activity and dates. I am meeting interesting people, one of whom she has introduced to me and will hopefully be a permanent match!

I had a difficult divorce experience a year before I contacted Julianne. I was feeling ready to meet new people, but wasn’t at all sure how to go about it. It had been nearly 20 years since I had dated and the thought of beginning again was overwhelming. Julianne’s previous experience helping others was evident as we went through my dating history. She pointed out areas of strength and things I could begin working on in a caring, supportive way. I could tell her about the stuff I felt awkward confiding to friends or family members. I have been on several dates since working with Julianne. I feel more confident and hopeful about finding the right person for me and know this is because of the guidance I have received from her.
