My counselor has known me for a REALLY long time since I've been friends with her daughter since kindergarten, and she's also friends with my mom. Is this going to affect how the adcom views the recommendation - especially in a negative way? I know I can get great recommendations from my teachers, but I'm worried that they will think my counselor's writing good things about me because I've know her for so long. Any thoughts?

I think it's good. That means your counselor knows you really well... Don't worry about it! ^_^

You should hear all the people who complain that they need a counselor recommendation, but don't know the person... and thus cannot possibly get a great rec from him or her.
If your counselor is halfway intelligent about it, the recommendation will be excellent - helping the admissions committee evaluate you as a student and as a human. If she is just writing about you personally, they will realize this - the language is clear either way.
