Note From Samantha

I used to be a moon child, just like you. During my teenage and college years, I loaded up my schedule to the point where I felt overwhelmed. I'd binge-watch Netflix as a way to cope, and often found myself staying up all night, desperately searching for a break. This pattern became so ingrained that my friends began calling me one with the moon, a true moon child.

From my own experiences, I've come to realize that being a moon child isn't a bad thing at all. It simply means that you might need a little bit of help when it comes to managing life's stresses and finding happiness. The moon children that come to seek therapy here are ones that are struggling with riddling anxiety, unprocessed experiences, and lack positive resources to help them get through their current state. They are over their anxiety, and highly motivated to feel completely satisfied with their life. Here at Moon Child Counseling, we extend a warm and compassionate welcome to all moon children who may be struggling and are seeking a change.

Why We Exist

At Moon Child Counseling, we exist for one fundamental reason: to let adolescents and college students know they are not alone in their journey.

We understand the unique challenges, and experiences that preteens, teens, and college students face in today's world. As therapists, we've been there ourselves. We remember the exact feeling of the drop in our stomachs when we faced challenging situations, a conflict with friends or the rush of emotions when our crush spoke to us.

Our mission is to create a supportive and empathetic space where young people are fully understood, accepted, and embraced for who they are. We believe that every young person deserves a safe and nurturing environment to express their thoughts, emotions, and concerns.

Our Mission To You

Our mission at Moon Child Counseling is simple but profound: To provide a sanctuary of understanding, compassion, and support for young people and their families. We are committed to empowering young individuals to navigate the often tumultuous journey of adolescence and early adulthood. We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to thrive and reach their full potential. Our therapists are not just professionals; they are like big siblings who genuinely care and remember the rollercoaster of emotions that come with youth. We are here to guide, to listen, and to help our clients build a strong foundation for a brighter future.


We Embrace The Following:

The power of empathy. We listen, understand, and support without judgment.

Creating a welcoming and safe environment where you can be yourself without fear of judgment.

Open and honest conversations and have this be a collaborative healing journey.

Continuous investment in our knowledge and expertise to provide the best possible support.

Not “fixing the person or issue”, but helping our clients gain new insights into what’s going on.

Having you walk through our doors, take a deep breath, and instantly feel at home.

Our Vision Of Success

Success, for us, is when a client walks into our office, takes a deep breath, and knows they have found a place where they are understood, and supported. It's when parents feel confident that their child is in the best possible hands and our young clients feel like they have a home away from home. Success is when we see the positive transformations, growth, and happiness in the lives of the individuals we are privileged to work with.

At Moon Child Counseling, we are dedicated to being the guiding light, the support system, and the trusted friend that every young person needs during the challenges of adolescence and college life. Join us in this journey of self-discovery and growth, and let us be the ones to remind you that you are not alone. Together, we can build a brighter future for you.
