I Believe

I succeed when you are joyously in LOVE! I work with my clients to guide them to be their personal best in their relationships, whether they are single or in a partnership.

About Joy Nordenstrom

With over a decade of experience as a relationship coach, certified matchmaker and the founder of Joy of Romance, Inc., I have a passion for guiding my clients to their relationship success. Whether they are single and looking for love, or in a partnership and wanting it to be the best it can be, I work with them to understand themselves in partnership – based on their core 10 relationship patterns. And if they happen to be single, learn how to become an excellent picker the next and hopefully final time of selecting a partner. My clients are ready to have the most incredible relationship of their lives!


In addition, I host a playful event series called DEVOURED – one for singles and another for couples (email me if you want to be on the list to be notified about upcoming events). I’m a love story preservationist – the ForeverAndEver Project (http://joyofromance.com/forever-and-ever/) – and an exclusive romantic event planner. My MBA and undergraduate degrees are from Mills College in Oakland and I attended the Matchmaking & Behavioral Sciences Institute in New York City. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area with my partner, son, three step-kids and Bella the Bunny. To learn more, visit www.joyofromance.com or email me at joy@joyofromance.com.

Coaching and Matchmaking Client Testimonial


Working with Joy provided me with a deeply insightful and pragmatic exploration into the latest scientific research on relationships and my relationship patterns.  With a charming and direct style, Joy was able to challenge my understanding of myself and the dynamics that were holding me back from experiencing a greater sense of ease and fulfillment in my relationships, whether romantic, friendship, or work-related.  As someone who loves to grow and expand, I highly recommend embarking upon the journey with Joy, your life will forever be changed in all the right ways.   Jim P. - Entrapeneur
