PC [HELP] Friend can't join multiplayer game (steam)


My friend and I want nothing more than to be able to play together, but each time i invite her to play a game with me - the "connection failed" error message comes up.
We've tried everything that comes up on the web - disabling firewall, reinstalling stardew - etc.
None of the solves online seem to work.
We are both running the same version and are both running through steam.
the only difference is she is using a Mac(apple) and im using a windows computer.
I'm not sure if that SHOULD affect anything but if it helps someone find a fix thats there.
