‘Kate Plus Date’: Who Is Kate Gosselin’s Matchmaker Rachel DeAlto?

Kate Gosselin is coming back to TV, and she’s on the hunt for a new man. The 44-year-old single mom of eight has been on her own since 2009, when she and husband Jon divorced. Now, she has a new TV show, Kate Plus Date, which will chronicle her attempts to find that special someone.

But Kate’s not alone on her dating journey. For one, her daughters Mady and Cara will be by her side, offering their opinions of suitors. Plus, she’ll have the help of a couple of professional matchmakers, Rachel DeAlto and Adam LoDolce, who will set her up on dates with 10 different single guys over the course of the six-part series.

Who is Rachel DeAlto?

If you’re a fan of Lifetime’s Married at First Sight, you’ll recognize DeAlto. The relationship coach appeared on two seasons of the hit show, where two people who’ve been matched by experts agree to go to the altar without ever having met. She also hosted Kiss Bang Love on FYI and appeared on Second Chances on Lifetime. Plus, she’s a regular guest on shows like Today, Good Morning America, Access Hollywood Live.

DeAlto is a certified hypnotherapist and received professional training as a coach through the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching. She has an undergraduate degree in communication and a J.D. from Seton Hall University School of Law. She’s been working as a relationship expert since 2010 and is the author of Flirt Fearlessly: The A to Z Guide to Getting Your Flirt On.

DeAlto doesn’t just work as a matchmaker on TV. She’s also available for one-on-one coaching. Her clients include single people looking for “the one,” as well as people who are coupled up but who need to work on issues in their relationship. She’ll even help you improve your relationships at work.

Why hire a coach? DeAlto says she can help you see your life from a difficult angle and get to where you want to be sooner.

“Are you tired of doing it alone? Do you want to get to the end result more efficiently? I work with you to keep you from the frustration that brings you to the brink. I help you to see different perspectives, develop different approaches, and make changes. I will hold you accountable – consistency is half the battle for any change you want to make,” she explains on her website.

Clients have three options to choose from when hiring DeAlto. The first is a three-month “jump start” program that comes with six, 60-minute coaching sessions (including up to two hypnotherapy sessions), a customized hypnosis audio track, and text and email access for three months. It costs $2,500.

A six-month program doubles the number of coaching sessions (and includes up to four hypnotherapy sessions) and costs $4,500. Finally, the “All In” package is a nine-month program with 18 one-on-one sessions with DeAlto (including up to six hypnotherapy sessions). It costs $6,500.
