SUCCESS STORIES


TESTIMONIAL FROM MICHAEL DORN

Having been on a spiritual journey for the last serval years I’ve been able to unlock positive traits in myself that are important to my growth. Upon meeting Sophia I was surprised to find a kindred spirit who shares all of the traits I’ve come to cherish. So much so that I have learned a great deal from her. Spiritual, thoughtful, empathetic to other people’s needs and respectful of their beliefs without losing her analytical talents or attention to details. One of the qualities that bound us together was her “out of the box” thinking, which she brings to her dating approach by matching people by their level of consciousness. She is truly one in a million.

MATCHMAKING CLIENT TESTIMONIAL 

FEEDBACK QUESTIONNAIRE: What was your experience of the initial interview?
– Extremely helpful! Sophia asked many in-depth questions that gave me the confidence she was really interested to know and understand me. The 40 pages intake questionnaire also prompted me to think about what is really important to me.

Did it shift your perception of your dating situation and how?
– Yes, it confirmed that I don’t need to settle for someone who doesn’t match with my values and interests. It changed my perception of online dating- that more dates and introductions aren’t necessarily “better”, or a good use of my time.

In which way was the coaching method different from other coaching programs/therapy you took earlier?
– Sophia’s approach is very different than what I expected. She helped me understand the “Field Theory” and helped me understand how to approach new relationships with confidence, and not from “need”.

How fast were you able to see the results?
– I purposely chose to wait until after our coaching before dating again, but Sophia quickly changed my attitudes about dating and also about past relationships, seeing more clearly why they weren’t successful.

How would you describe Sophia’s coaching style working with clients?
– Sophia is very kind and caring, and also direct. She calls things out, which I appreciate, and we talk through real-life situations, applying the principals I am learning. I trust that I can share anything with Sophia, including insecurities I might have. She is supportive, nonjudgmental, and encouraging. She suggested a large number of books to read between sessions. We were then ready to discuss and make the most of our time.

What was your experience with image makeover process?
Was Sophia able to match your style with your personality to deliver a better message of who and what you are?
– Absolutely! She first suggested some stores to me, and I went to stylists at those stores by myself. I wasn’t totally comfortable with what the stylists chose, but purchased the clothes anyway. After showing them to Sophia it was clear to me the value of having her shop in person with me. I returned the other clothes and Sophia chose styles that were spot-on for me. Afterward, the women I have dated have complimented me on every ensemble Sophia chose for me, even the cologne she suggested at our last stop.

What was your shopping experience like?
– Fun! With Sophia advising the store’s stylist, the two women were able to quickly find me a great combination of shoes, slacks, shirts, suits, and jackets that will cover a wide variety of dating situations, without breaking my budget. Sophia spent hours with me, carefully choosing each piece of clothing and each accessory.

What was your photo-shoot like?
– Were atmosphere and location making you relaxed and comfortable? Yes! Originally I was self-conscious about a photo-shoot in public, but Sophia and the photographer made me feel at ease and comfortable. Sophia was very particular about the poses and backgrounds she felt would reflect best on me. I appreciated her meticulous attention to those details.

Did your images turn out as you expected?
– Yes. Sophia and the photographer said there were more good images than normal that they wanted me to choose from. Sophia also helped me choose the photos that best conveyed energy and my personality so that women she matches me with will get a good sense of who I am from my photos.

Was Sophia present and personally involved personally in your image makeover, shopping, and photo-shoot?
– Yes! Sophia made the time to spend an entire afternoon and evening shopping with me, and another afternoon and evening at the photo-shoot. In addition, she encouraged me to bring clothes I purchased without her to her home to try on. She has exceptional taste and brought a perspective to the makeover, shopping, and photo-shoot that I found extremely valuable and beneficial.

What was your matchmaking experience?
Did Sophia have enough matches fitting your criteria?
– Sophia showed me a large number of women in her database who appeared to spark my interest. She also was quick to point out women who she felt would not be a good match for me, even though I was attracted to their photos and their profiles.

Did potential matches recommendation by Sophia match the reality?
– Yes! In fact, the first match she made for me is the only one I’ve had because she seems to be a perfect fit for me. My date and I hit it off from the first phone call and we’re exclusive with each other. She and I are both amazed at how perfect we seem to be for each other. We celebrated Thanksgiving together and sent a photo to Sophia telling her how thankful we are for her bringing us together.

How long did it take for you to meet the right match?
– When I first interviewed with Sophia she showed me her #1 choice for me, after we spent three hours together and she got to know me. Four months later, when I was ready to be matched, Sophia showed me the same woman’s profile again, still believing she was the #1 choice for me. We met, have dated for two months, and are now exclusive. Sophia has offered to match me with other women but I haven’t seen the need. My match and I are very happy together and continue to be amazed at how Sophia knew we would be so right for each other.

Was Sophia available to provide you with dating support and advice on a daily basis as needed?
– Absolutely! Though I haven’t needed it after the first couple of dates, given how well things are going.

I highly recommend Sophia for all the services she provides. When I paid her for one year of matchmaking I expected to date numerous women until I found one to be exclusive with. I was skeptical when Sophia told me that my first match might be the only one I need – but so far she is right. Even if it turns out that I paid all the money to Sophia for just one match, it will be worth it. To borrow from the Master Card catch-phrase, finding true love is “priceless”.

COACHING CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

Hi Sophia,

Thanks for the dating and relationship coaching, I have made significant progress since reading your posts, messaging you, and practicing.

What has been most helpful is regaining the power that I had. I was just going along with some of the things that the woman said. I was trying to be polite, but I need to stand up for what is right. They respect that and it creates more attraction.

You talked about the example of communication and the level of sophistication of master daters. I bumped up a couple of levels of sophistication, fine tuning, and I’m getting much better results. There are more women and they are more attractive in more ways.

I’m getting more matches on Tinder and OK Cupid. I’m much more confident since working with you. Starting to get my swagger back. Need to keep building it. I’m working on more of what the women are interested in and getting them to be attracted to me.

At the grocery, I never meet women and I had a scientist woman and another woman leaning in and their eyes were sparkling towards me after I was flirting with them.

Thanks for your coaching. It’s made a big difference in improving the quality and quantity of my dating. I’ll keep working towards the one woman life-long loving relationship. Keep my eyes open, but also let it happen.

WHAT CLIENTS AND MEMBERS SAY ABOUT US

Sophia, I love this video – You did a magnificent job of touching on all of your areas of specialty, including your unique individualized coaching strategy through the entire dating lifecycle. You absolutely have a gift for successfully providing successful outcomes through your experience and personalized attention to the individuals you work with. I like how you also mention the fact that so much money can be spent on dates that are not a fit – whether the cost be in dollars, time lost on matches that bring no long term potential, or lost opportunities due to repeated behavior patterns that allow dating to end prematurely. There is an absolute savings and success factor that is to be accounted for in working with you. Your honest, personalized, and open approach to communication is magnificent – you drill in to the core issues that allow for an individual to recognize and realign with their desires and attract as well as recognize the best mate. You provide that additional before and after layer that is fundamental to success, and that coaching aspect is so very important, and something that the majority of services out there do not provide. You take the false notion of love being a numbers game, and you put the information for success in your client’s hands by identifying key areas of value, and empowering them toward their greatest potential with a very caring touch. You have a wonderful gift my friend, and Seattle is blessed to have you. You can’t put a price on love…but there sure is a cost to lost time and small talk with a host of nonmatches – if we took a spreadsheet to the average annual expenditures of unsuccessful dates – I have no doubt the numbers would add up to far more than the average person realizes over the course of each year!

~ Lisa Rayanne, 35yo - February 2, 2011

I have known Sophia for about a year now, and my every interaction with her has been absolutely wonderful. Sophia is professional, and maintains confidentiality which is of utmost importance when we are sharing our personal lives with someone. The trust factor is absolutely there, which allowed for me to open up to her. Something else that I really appreciate about Sophia is she used her own life as an example with me at times when there was an alignment, to help me see that these things are not isolated events that only happen to me, but many of us face events and if we manage through them well, then we grow from the situations and are better people as a result. Sometimes it is hard to hear the truth of our own areas of improvement, so when Sophia uses herself as an example, your walls go down, because she is not only taking your story, she is sharing hers…she is humbly relating so that you can feel comfortable in those areas that you can improve on. Granted there are issues that the other people around us may need to change, but as we grow as people, it is not so much a need to focus on others, as it is to focus on ourselves, that is what we are able to really bring change in – and that is how we move our life forward in a blessed and successful way.

Since I started meeting with Sophia, many significant things have changed in my life – all because of the tools she gave me, from how to be more aware of myself and what I attract into my life, to how I respond to situations in life and alternative ways of responding were offered by her – which actually proved very beneficial even though my first reaction was to doubt. Sophia taught me some key points 1. Humility/Humble 2. Authentic 3. Kind rather than right — at first this made me feel weak, because I”m a very type A, strong woman and for me to change my communication style was not easy, it took me 3 months of being aware daily and in being willing to try it even if it felt odd. I even through through a period where I just felt I was in a void – never was I unhappy, I just felt out of touch with things, everything was vague almost like a dream state where you are not sure you fit.

After those 3 months passed and I kept with everything she had taught me, accepting that I don’t have to be perfect, and that the way I calculated perfect to be, may not have been what others saw perfect as being — the changes started to come through. I now attract very successful, kind, authentic genuine people into my life. I broke away from my employer and started my own company, and I am embracing life with true joy. Instead of hiding the softer sides of who I am, for fear that the fast paced business world would only be interested in seeing my stronger side, and transferring that over to the men I would meet — all was a fallacy – the reality is, the world responds well to our authentic self, even if it means being softer, removing walls, being open, being vulnerable….we attract what we are, and thus the most beautiful parts of life are only seen when we open ourselves with confidence and love to the vulnerability of feeling life and allowing life to see through us and to be ok with our imperfections, most people dont see them anyway, because no one is perfect. Sophia is a true treasure, and she has a wealth of knowledge that absolutely brings results – by now you may have had a couple sessions with her and are aware, and if not, I encourage you to do so. I had about 10+ sessions and I”ll have a couple more – but what I love is that the results are obvious, she doesn’t just listen, she provides tools and solutions — to realize your dreams, to bring out the beauty within you, and to live the best possible life, attracting the most beautiful possibilities. All the best, L.

He is great! Thank you for asking. He adores me, which is something I haven’t experienced since my 1st husband. He came in a package I didn’t expect — but you really helped me see that the things I was looking for in men and what I was attracted to were not making me happy. I would never have met him without your help with my pictures & profile, encouragement to start dating again, and the coaching. So, thank you! 🙂

~ Female, 43yo, Seattle, WA - August 2010

I have an update on my dating/relationship scene. I think I had mentioned at the first coaching session that the last introduction went well. Since that time about 3 weeks ago, her and I moved like a speeding bullet to major boyfriend/girlfriend status. I mean MAJOR MAJOR bf/gf status. I wanted to say that on our second date I clearly brought up the “what are you looking for” type of filtering/honesty questions – something I never, ever would have done before! Though at the time we weren’t exactly on the same page at the beginning of the second date we talked about most everything, and by the end of it we were absolutely crazy for each other, and the date got even better! We both see MAJOR long-term potential (and it seems we’re both dancing around the “L” word!). This is not to say my work is done. We have both talked about the very real possibility that the flame will burn strong yet quick, and before we know it things will be over. Until then however, we will enjoy it!

Dear Sophia, I would like to thank you again for speaking to me yesterday and giving me a lift. It will take a little bit of time to heal but one of the best advice was that God had something better planned for me than I originally did. All of your advices were great!! I will definitely try to keep in contact and work on my healthy boundaries. Thanks again Sophia and have a great day! “It takes two to tango, but one to fall”.

~ Male, 25yo, Austin, TX - July, 2010

Hi Sophia; Good to see you yesterday. Thanks for the kind words you wrote about me on your facebook. So true. Funny that my perfect match was one person away from me and that person was you.  So thanks Sophia for the daily butterflies in my stomach, the rose colored glasses I wear all day, the swellingin my heart and buckling knees.  It’s all really good. Hope for you too.

FROM HER MATCH:
Sophia, Yes..! I want to say thanks also.. She is awesome for me..! So many reasons why.. She is my match..! I am falling in love again for the first time in so many years..! I am not so grumpy anymore..:-)) Thanks again, The best to you Sophia and God bless!

FROM THE BACHELORETTE
Dear Sophia; I just wanted to thank you for your highly intuitive gifts that have united me with someone who is potentially my life partner. When I first came to you with the desire to meet the man of my dreams, I felt in some strange way that you in fact were capable of doing this. I felt this partly because you operate at a different energetic level in looking for potential soul mates but also because you “see” potential everywhere.  This is a gift and I see that in you.  After just a few meetings with you, I could sense that you felt my “essence” which is important when trying to find a compatible partner.  I could feel the universal forces working within you to try and find my match.  And you did that very quickly.  My first match!!!!!!!!!!!!! I knew instantly that this man was on my life page and we had many karmic overlaps and synchronicities to play out.  That has been true and now 1 month later we are growing closer and closer to each other with the hope that we develop a long lasting and enduring relationship filled with happiness. We are both thankful for you Sophia as you have changed both of our lives and made us better people.  I hope your gifts can be felt by many others as love is the universal energy and should be shared.  It’s the only thing that will make this world a better place. Heartfelt thanks Sophia for your spiritual and intuitive perspective on people and love.

~ SLM, Seattle - June 7th, 2010

Every time I think of Love, Friendship and the word Serendipity I think of YOU! I think of the person who reached out to a stranger and only connected by FB and a few common friends! You helped me heal, grow and believe in myself! You have been a very important role in my journey and when I think of where I was in Dec and where I am now I smile and think of you. I am now MADLY in love.. I am in a year mentorship to help others like you have helped me and I am the happiest I have ever been in my life! Thank you my friend! Anytime you need a reference I will gladly give you one! Blessings!!!

~ Female - May 21st, 2010

Sophia. Last night, My efforts to save a mans life with ten other gifted and trained medical crew members reminded me of you this evening. It seems that you have a gift of sending so many words of kindness and life long learning messages about the power of love in many perspectives. Last night, I heard love in the purest form. It was in the cry of a womans voice desiring her husband to return to life during a tragic medical event. I did not have the time to even look up and catch her appearance. I was forced to keep focussed on maintaining a perfect airway and delivering oxygen to a dying body. Her voice described herself without any features. This woman was crying for a continued life of love and her hopes of a bond between a man and woman to still grow just one more day, one more week, a month, an eternity. It was there that I was reminded of your messages. Her voice blew them all away. It was perfect, pure and radiant, and it gave me the strength to give my life with others that night for the sole purpose of keeping that bond between them a living reality. Thanks also for what you do Sophia. You also have the gift of saving lives. Namaste”

~ Male, Bellevue, WA - May 19th, 2010

Sophia, hello, we just wanted to touch base to let you know that tomorrow is our six month anniversary, and we couldn’t be more enamored with one another. Though our time together feels like it’s gone by in a flash, other times, it feels like we’ve been together forever and have so much in common. We are now both equally excited in pursuing our relationship (and our dreams) together. This match would not have come about without your keen talents, of which we are overflowing with gratitude towards you.
