The Millennial Love Expert, Samantha Burns, LMHC is a Relationship Counselor and Dating Coach who works with individuals and couples to create the love lives they deserve and desire! Samantha offers breakup coaching to help you bounce back from a soul-crushing split, dating coaching to help you find your perfect match, and relationship coaching to better nurture your love and increase overall satisfaction with your partner.

After a serious, long-term boyfriend suddenly ended their relationship when Samantha was expecting a proposal, she survived the devastation (what she calls “zombie mode"), learned how to redefine her self-concept, increased confidence and self-worth, and figured out how to reframe her pain into wisdom gained so that she could  find the silver lining in her heartbreak. This total transformation enabled her to create a thriving dating life, meet her perfect match within three months of her breakup, and accept her husband’s proposal on the one year anniversary of their first date! She's now happily married and passionate about helping broken-hearted men and women do the same, as well as teaching couples how to overcome disconnection, infidelity, and other hurts to have better communication, intimacy and affection in their relationships.

As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Samantha earned her Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology, completing her thesis on gender differences in infidelity and counseling couples through an affair. Samantha works both in her thriving private practice in Boston, Massachusetts, as well as virtually with clients near and far via video calls.

Samantha is also the author of Breaking Up & Bouncing Back: Moving On To Create The Love Life You Deserve—the highly anticipated book about how to survive a soul-crushing breakup and develop healthy foundational skills to a happy dating life (due out May, 2018 with Dover Publications). She's also written the ebook Love Successfully: 10 Secrets You Need To Know Right Now about the secret ingredients to cook up a happy relationship, (click the link to download for free!).
