I am a licensed therapist in the state of Arizona with experience in many different types of struggles. I have my Ph.D in Psychology and Master's degree in Counseling. I have worked with individuals that range from ages 5 to 85 dealing with a variety of different life stages and problems. My specialties include anxiety, self-esteem, marriage/family struggles and relationships. However, I feel I am skilled in many other areas as well, and I absolutely love counseling!
I find myself being a very warm and genuine therapist that values the therapeutic relationship I have with my clients. I love to encourage others and build them up! I am not confrontational, but I do value honesty, and I provide honest feedback.
If you are ready to make a positive and lasting change in your life, or you just need someone to talk to, I would love to hear from you. I am very passionate about this work and I believe in the purpose that it serves.
I can't wait to begin this journey with you and I look forward to hearing from you!
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Parenting issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Depression

Dr. Mell is extremely compassionate and approachable. She is also very intuitive and makes it clear that she really listens to you. She takes her time to ensure she answers every question thoroughly. Dr. Mell doesn't hesitate to ask for clarification whenever needed to make sure she really understands the communication so she can respond accordingly. I couldn't ask for a better therapist for my needs.
