Liz Higgins, LMFT
Founder of MLC

My passion for helping millennial couples and individuals began on my own search for love and journey towards marriage. I realized along the way that most of us really have NO idea of what it actually takes to find- and sustain- a healthy, mature, yet passionate relationship. I believe that modern relationships have been turned upside down by the impact of social media, online dating, and the choice paradox, leading to a plague of commitment-phobia. My mission is to help couples and individuals explore what's holding them back and acquire the tools and skills necessary to thrive in the modern age of relationships.

Deborah holds a strong focus on working with families experiencing conflict, and has a passion for "high conflict" couples, or those whose relationships are in a gridlock of problems, miscommunication, and unhealthy or toxic dynamics. She also loves working with blended families and premarital couples who are remarrying or are bringing children (or the influence of a previous marriage) into their current relationship.
