Individual online counseling in Arkansas for adults struggling with big changes and transitions in life.

Are you struggling with change in your life?

Our lives are always changing, just like the moon.  Sometimes things are growing brighter and feel at their fullest.  Other times, things seem to be growing darker.

Whether change came by choice or by chance, you're struggling.  You're feeling lost and overwhelmed, stuck and hopeless.  You don't know how to cope with the thoughts and feelings you're having, and you don't know where to turn or where to start.  You want to manage your anxiety, break out of the patterns of depression, build and improve relationships, and create a life of richness and vitality that feels like a life worth living.


But it's all so confusing!  You wish that you could figure out how to move forward or even that things could go back to the way they were before.

You just want things to get better.

Why seek counseling for change?

Dealing with change can affect us in many ways and everyone is unique in how they experience and handle change.


Maybe your change was by choice like changing careers, starting a relationship, coming out as your authentic self, or deciding that you want to release things from your past to pursue a life focused on what's important to you.


Perhaps your change happened by chance such as losing your job, acquiring a disability or becoming a caregiver to someone, being outed before you're ready, or just having life as you envisioned it disrupted by unexpected and even traumatic events.

You may be struggling with all kinds of emotions like anxiety, sadness, grief, or even anger.  Sometimes these emotions can be very raw and overpowering and you don't know what to do.  Other times, they're quieter but they're still there.  They're persistent.  You can feel them just below the surface.  Or maybe you know they're there but you just can't connect with them, like there's a glass wall between you and your emotions.

Painful thoughts creep in at all times of the day and night and you can't seem to control them.  It might be thoughts about the events that led to the change, replaying a traumatic event over and over in your mind, or fearful images about the future.  Sometimes it's like something inside you is talking badly about you and calling you all kinds of terrible names.

Daily living can feel like a chore.  Some days it seems like a lot to just get out of bed and put one foot in front of the other.  It all seems so overwhelming or pointless.  Life feels like an act rather than something joyful and worth living.

Even your relationships could be suffering.   Are you isolating yourself from others because you're afraid they'll reject you or think you're weak for struggling?  Are you afraid to turn to others for support because you figure they have enough to worry about already?  Are you keeping things inside because you worry about being a burden to others?

Maybe you've noticed you're acting in ways that others are worried about or you find distressing, yourself.  The things you are doing to cope just don't seem to help, at least not in the long term.

Does any of this sound like you?

There are all kinds of signs that you're struggling with change and different ways it can affect you.

How can counseling help with change?

People delay getting the help they need all of the time.  Sometimes it's because the change doesn't feel like anything we typically think about when we picture mental health counseling.  You may not consider your struggles to be something that can be diagnosed or you may think that you're taking up time that "someone with worse problems" could use.


But no matter how it seems right now, your struggles are real and you deserve support


You deserve to find the clarity that will help you move forward, the insight to understand what you're experiencing, the skills to take action, and the ability to pursue a life of meaning and joy despite your circumstances.  Some of the benefits of counseling can include:

  • Increase your ability to manage uncomfortable thoughts, feelings, and sensations.

  • Improve your focus on the present rather than the past or future.

  • Learn life-enhancing ways of coping with your challenges.

  • Developing a plan for change that feels realistic and approachable to you.

Hi there!  I'm Quinn, a licensed therapist providing online counseling in Arkansas

The therapist of MoonPath Counseling smiling warmly at the viewer.

I'm a licensed counselor in Northwest Arkansas serving all of the state by telehealth.  As a LGBTQ therapist (pronouns they/them/theirs) who came out later in life, the partner of a person with a disability, and a three-time career changer I understand the challenges change brings.  I also resonate with the struggles of adult children of parents with their own mental health challenges.

I have also experienced the amazing transformation that can come with the support of therapists who not only accept your authentic self but help you uncover more of it and celebrate who you are.  I became a counselor to be there for people for people like you who are also struggling with changes in their life just like I did.  

Because of my own challenges in life and my experiences with therapists, it's part of my mission to make my space LGBTQ+ affirming, sex-informed, sex- and kink-positive, and spiritually diverse.  My work with clients is informed by Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and other mindfully-based approaches for positively-focused work.

Just like the phases of the moon, each of us are in constant change.  Just like the moon, we can shine brightly.  And just like how the moon is still there when it seems darkest, your authentic self and your strength are still there even when life seems at its darkest.

I started MoonPath Counseling, LLC because I want to help you come into the present, let go of the past, and look forward to the future.
