To the Moon and Back Story

To the Moon and Back was created in 2016.

I had just made up my mind to start a private practice.

Feeling at once excited and terrifed, it was all I could think about.

But what to call it?

Sometimes, the best things happen when you least expect them.

This was one of those times.

The idea struck me when I was riding a bus into the city to attend a workshop.

My son, 4 years old at the time, would grab my face in his two chubby little hands each bedtime and whisper,

I love you to the moon and back, and to the moon and back again,
and again.... times 1000 million.

He would get breathless from the intensity of what he was trying to tell me. I could see that it 

meant so much to him that I understood the feelings inside.

And it was that day, on the bus, I thought,


That's it.
To the Moon and Back was everything I was looking for in a name.

It captures the infinite love that children and parents have for each other; 

it evokes aspiration and hope; 

it embodies the idea that anything is possible.

These are the values that TMB was founded on. 

Aspiration. Hope. Possibility.  Love.
