The Short Version: Kailen Rosenberg, the Founder of Love Architects, begins her work with clients with in-depth coaching and healing. She said it isn’t always easy, but it’s worth the time to ensure they’re truly ready to find love. With one-on-one matchmaking, a popular podcast, and an international dating app, Kailen and her team are focused on helping people find love within themselves, so they can be open to finding the love of their lives.
Even when Kailen Rosenberg was a little girl, she understood the difference between healthy, respect-filled love and love that was toxic and destructive. Her mother had a string of bad relationships, while her grandparents shared a strong and special bond. She decided at an early age that she wanted to help people find the kind of love that her grandparents shared.
“I made it my plan — as a little, old soul — to help adults fix all this stuff when I grew up. It has been at the forefront of my heart to help change this world since I was a kid,” she said. “Initially, I thought I would take the technical route of studying psychology, becoming a therapist, and working with kids. But God had a very different plan for me.”
In the 1990s, Kailen began working as a life and spiritual coach based in Minnesota, which, back then, was known as self-image consulting. She used her intuition to help clients understand themselves, find love from within, and use their power while honoring their inner voice. She noticed that the more her clients loved themselves, the easier it was for them to find healthy, meaningful relationships.
Since many of Kailen’s clients were single, she found herself casually connecting them — with amazing success. She was credited with marriage after marriage, and a Minnesota magazine even featured her on the cover. News of her methods and success also made its way to New York, and the press began contacting her.
“They were calling me and asking me if I was a matchmaker, and I said, ‘No, I’m not a matchmaker. I help people find love for themselves from within,'” she said. “But they kept referring to me as a matchmaker, and I figured, ‘What the heck?’”
Today, Kailen, known as the Celebrity Love Architect, is a Certified Master Life Love Relationships Coach with specialized training in addictions, and she runs the Love Architects — a firm that works one-on-one with elite singles to help them find authentic love by approaching it from the inside out. She also produces a podcast and has a dating app called The Lodge Social Club to give singles more control in finding someone special.
To realize her childhood dream of changing the world through love, Kailen created a system to help people heal first before venturing into the dating world.
“If you are in the dating or matchmaking industry and matching people based on their ego’s desire and their brokenness — and we all have brokenness — they can get stuck,” she said. “You have to dig into it and bring issues to your clients’ awareness so they can have something better on the next go around.”
All her clients take the Relationship Readiness Assessment before working through what is known as a custom “Love + Life Blueprint” — either in person in Minnesota or online via a video call. Every client undergoes a background check, too.
When she visits a client’s home, Kailen observes their surroundings. She said she believes that a home can tell the story of how a client expresses themselves, as well as how they show and receive love. She won’t match anybody until she believes they are in a space where they can fully give love and accept it.
“Because of that approach, our connections can be long-lasting. I stopped counting at over 400 marriages back in 2009, and I’ve only heard of one divorce,” she said. “When I hear from couples going back 20 years, they’re still best friends. They have amazing, true partnerships. At this point, it’s been working well for 25 years, and I’m proud of the success I’ve had for my clients — and the success they’ve had in their love lives.”
Love Architects clients range in age from their late 20s to their early 70s, and most are highly successful individuals who Kailen calls, “students of life.”
“Some of my clients are people who have been hit on the head over and over again with painful relationships and marriages. Others have been to high-end matchmakers, and they feel ripped off or taken advantage of, or they’re embarrassed by the relationships they wanted,” she said.
“My clients are ready for love and authentic relationships and want to do something better, energetically, in this world. They also tend to be successful, high-networkers, influencers, and celebrities.” — Kailen Rosenberg, Founder of Love Architects
For example, Kailen said an older man who sought out a young woman who looked like a Victoria Secret model might have had a little fun, but, eventually, he’ll realize that appearance isn’t the only thing that matters.
“My clients are ready for love and authentic relationships and want to do something better, energetically, in this world. They also tend to be successful, high-networkers, influencers, and celebrities,” she said. “I enjoy that, not only because they are influential, but also because, when they get themselves together as a healthy being, they can take their power out into the world and do good things with it.”
Costs for the assessment work — which her clients say is like 10 years of therapy and self-revelation packed into an hour — typically range from $500 to $1,500. Some clients also choose to work with Kailen’s son, Andrew Hanson, who is the firm’s President and only other Certified Master Love Designer. Kailen and Andrew each have a unique style, but they are steadfast in working to help clients overcome superficiality in the ways they connect.
As Kailen continues her mission, she has created a dating app called The Lodge Social Club to help people engage with her process even more. The app uses the same model as her matchmaking service to ensure that users are ready to find love before they can actively begin searching for partners.
“It’s world’s first fully vetted dating app and private social club for singles to find each other. We vet everyone criminally, psychologically, soulfully, spiritually and also in regard to relationship readiness,” she said.
At sign up, users take tests designed to determine whether the people you desire to connect with are going to be a good match for you on all levels.
Kailen and her team have created pop-up lodges at locations and events like New York Fashion Week where they also live audience recordings of the Love Happy Hour podcast, in which they discuss relationships.
“We hope to clean up the dating industry and get the large platforms to follow suit and support their members in being more authentic and helping rather than harming,” Kailen said.
Along with the app, Kailen — who has already written a book entitled “Real Love, Right Now” — is working on another book. She’s also planning to create new partnerships and work with successful couples to spread the word of just how powerful authentic love can be.
“It’s healing for me, and it heals the child in me. That little girl, she’s accomplishing what she set out to do. And it’s protecting more kids from what I had to go through. It’s my mission,” she said. “Because of that, I’m the only one in my industry with the support of some of the most respected names in the world in psychology, academia, and spirituality.”
