Loren's Badass Chick

Samantha Burns

This week's Badass Chick is Samantha Burns, LMHC. She's a relationship counselor, dating coach and - as of last week! - a published author. 

Samantha studied clinical psychology and started her own private practice for relationships and couples therapy over five years ago. Then, in 2013, she launched Love Successfully and dubbed herself the Millennial Love Expert. Thanks to her extensive schooling, private practice work and her own harrowing dating stories, Samantha is an expert in millennial dating - especially with this overwhelming world of online dating. She was even recognized this year by Match.com as one of the nation's leading love experts. In 2014, she started writing her own book in hopes of sharing her knowledge with as many people as possible to know that they aren't alone when it comes to a big breakup. She was signed by Dover Publishing House and her first book, Breaking Up and Bouncing Back, was officially published last week. My favorite thing about her book is that she shares so much of her own personal stories that you honestly feel like your friend is talking you through a breakup - not some stiff, judgy, mental health counselor. 

Samantha's empire is in its early building stages -- she currently offers a virtual Breakup Bounce Back coaching program for those who need help kicking their breakup in the butt, and she works with clients for dating and relationship coaching. Ideally down the road she would love to become a television host for relationship shows. She's also got another book idea in the works, too. She's an incredibly motivated person and in a world full of phony #inspo influencers, Samantha stands out as a smart, real-deal counselor who has the tools to help you date as successfully as possible. I'm a fan and I'm happy to call her a Badass Chick! 

Samantha's holding a book discussion and signing at Barnes & Noble Burlington this Sunday if you want to meet her and check out her book.
