Individual online counseling for adults in Fayetteville and across Arkansas.

Are you ready to take a positive step forward?

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.

Right now, you're struggling with what life has thrown at you.  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.  You've read articles online, watched videos, read self-help books, and maybe even seen other therapists.  Some things may have helped a little, but it wasn't quite enough.  You're still feeling stuck.

You just want things to get better.

Does this sound like you?

You're 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 what you're experiencing, 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.  Some of them may even be making your problems worse.

How can counseling help?

People delay getting the help they need all of the time.  Sometimes it's because their problems don'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 life can throw at us.  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.  I also welcome individuals who have struggled to find a therapist who understands that polyamorous and ethically non-monogamous relationships can be vibrant and healthy.

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.
