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!

I love my counselor. I've been working with her for years and she's been a great help in my development.
Ive been working with Alison for a few years now. I love that I can text, email my thoughts even if its random and she picks up what Im feeling. She gives great insight and helps me think through my issue to help me get to a better place.
I have been meeting with Alison for nearly 2 years, she has saved my sanity and helped me find solid ground on many occasions. She can empathize and help you see through the muck to find a better path, I would recommend her to anyone.
I appreciate how Alison knows me and tailors what she says to fit me, acknowledging what an ideal scenario might be, but also acknowledging why that may not work for me, so giving me alternative ideas.
She's great highly recommend Alison.
Alison has helped me find clarity with many issues in a very short time. She is pleasant and easy to work with but firm enough to call me out on my stuff when needed.

Alison is fantastic, realistic, and extremely helpful. Her insights are very real world applicable and founded in logic, not hypotheticals. I very much enjoy the perspective she brings.
I've been working with Alison for a couple of years now. I can't even find the words that would appropriately describe the magnitude of the impact her counseling has had. I absolutely trust her and I can't recommend her enough.
Alison has helped me begin to thrive again. She is compassionate and caring. I never felt judged by her, but encouraged and supported to be better. Thanks, Alison!
Empathetic and genuine counselor.
I have had her for a couple of years now. She is very sweet and very attentive to what is bothering or wrong and full of information. I had a hard time acclimating to counseling but she made me feel like I wasn’t as off as I thought I was. She is an honest awesome person that really cares and she helped me a lot. Would recommend her to anyone who needs someone to talk to.
She is personable, precise, intuitive and fun

Allison provides constructive feedback and suggestions, and is willing to share her personal experiences as they relate to my issues. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of counseling.
Alison has been an amazing help to me. I have recommended her and BetterHelp to others.
Alison is amazing! She shows up when no one else does. She digs deep into your issues and comes up with several different solutions to help you get through them. When I've felt like no one else was around, I'd get a notification saying I had a message from Alison. She was even there when I wasn't. Shes kind, caring, positive and responds quickly. I can tell that she's very passionate about helping others find their way, thier way. I definitely don't tell her enough, or maybe at all, but I truly appreciate her and I'm grateful to have her here in my overwhelming life. Thank you Alison for all you do!
I am happy with Alison Mell and we do communicate well. I had to drop the therapy for a while because of the cost but I am happy that we can email again each other.

Alison is so helpful and effective. She provides me with a lot of information and helps keep me grounded during hard times.

Alison is amazing! I'd never worked with counselor before, and feel so lucky that to find a great fit on the first try. She's insightful and kind and just really easy to talk with.

I had a great experience with Alison, she always listened very carefully, was very encouraging and gave good advice. I would definitely recommend her.
Alison is fantastic! I was a little hesitant because of the screens separating us, but she really seems to understand and has helped me a lot in just a little bit of time. I wasn't sure if I was going to go beyond the "free week", but I chose to because she is super responsive and honestly cares.
