About Samantha Burns

The Millennial Love Expert, Samantha Burns, LMHC, is a Licensed Counselor and Relationship Coach who was recognized by as one of the leading love and dating experts in the industry in 2017. She’s been featured across the media, on sites such as the Today Show, Yahoo, and Inside Edition, and she’s a frequent contributor for HuffPo, Women’s Health, Cosmo, Reader’s Digest, Brides, Bustle, Refinery29, Brit + Co, Your Tango, Elite Daily, and many more. Her approach to helping you overcome heartbreak and move on to create the love life you deserve is fresh and relatable, especially in the modern, tech-savvy dating world. Samantha has been told she feels like your best friend and therapist combined to kick your breakup in the butt! So how is it that she can get into the mind of her readers and clients so well? Because she’s been there too. Having gone through her own big breakup after a 5 year relationship ended with more questions than answers, Samantha has lived and breathed it all (and worked with hundreds of clients in the same situation) to help you not only survive heartbreak, but thrive in the life you create afterwards.

Typically strong and resilient, Samantha realized that if she felt that devastated and miserable, and she was a professional counselor, then other people without the skills and support must feel even worse. This inspired Samantha over the past five years to develop specific therapeutic skills and exercises in her clinical practice in Boston, Massachusetts and virtual coaching business, to help her clients work through the pain, create closure, become smarter, more intentional daters, and find an even better love. Samantha met her perfect match just three months after her big breakup and got married less than two years later, and believes you can create a happy, successful love life too!

Samantha is also the creator of a transformational 12-week coaching program, Breakup Bounce Back, that helps you move from survive to thrive after heartbreak so that you can finally let go of your ex and learn how to identify and connect with your perfect match. In addition to breakup and dating coaching, she also offers relationship coaching to better nurture your love and increase overall satisfaction with your partner. 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.
