“Licensed Psychotherapist and Board Certified Coach for Millennials/Gen Zers and named "The Millennial Therapist" by CNBC's Make It.”


About Me

Tess Brigham (LMFT, BCC) is psychotherapist, certified coach, author, and Tedx Speaker. She specializes in helping Millennials/Gen Zers discover their unique life path so they can go out into the world and make an impact.

At age 27, Tess seemed to have it all as a top Hollywood junior talent manager. But on the inside, things felt empty and pointless. She took a huge risk, quit her job, and rebuilt a career and life she loved. Now she helps other early-career professionals navigate the same quarter-life crisis process.

With 20 years of experience, Tess has helped thousands of people find their purpose, develop their confidence and create a life they’re excited about living. Identifying your issues is one thing, taking action to get past them is another. Tess’s rare combination of being a trained psychotherapist and a certified coach make her uniquely qualified to help young adults find clarity so they can confidently discover their path and make an impact on the world.

Her Tedx Talk "What Your Gen Z Kid Wants You to Know" will be released in the summer of 2024 and her book, "True You: A Step-by-Step Guide to Conquering Your Quarter-Life Crisis" is available everywhere books are sold.

She has been featured on the TV show “The Doctors” and is a regular contributor at both Forbes and CNBC as “The Millennial Therapist.” She has also been a featured Millennial expert at NBC News, Oprah Magazine, MindBodyGreen, Yahoo News, USA Today, Mic, Real Simple, Chicago Tribune, Huff Post, Brit & Co, Bustle, She Knows, Primer Magazine, GenTwenty, I Am & Co, Chelsea Krost, Insider, Creative Global, Thrive Global and Thought Catalog.

In addition to her work as a therapist and coach she hosts a bi-weekly podcast with her sister Brooke called, "Psych Legal Pop." They cover pop culture topics through the lens of an attorney (Brooke) and a therapist (Tess). Tess loves to talk about mental health and psychology in relationship to reality TV, true crime, celebrity culture and society.

Tess is a Northern Californian native and lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and lives with her husband of 20 years, her teenage son and their two pugs - Jabba and Biscuit.
