Alison Mell

(MSC, NCC, LPC)

About Me

I am a licensed therapist in the state of Arizona with experience in many different types of struggles. I have my Master's degree in Counseling and I am currently working on my Ph.D in Psychology. I have completed all of my coursework and I am now in my dissertation stage. 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 this! Messaging with Alison helped make the best use of my time when we had our first call. I will never go back to traditional therapy because I have found my counselor through BetterHelp!

Alison is smart, empathetic and intuitive. She's encouraging and she's an ally. I trust that she cares and you can tell by the way she responds that she's heard you and taken time to write a good response. Her grammar and spelling are on point as well!

My first time to get help, but Alison made it easy for me. She talks and cares like a sister, straightforward but helpful and caring. What I'm going through isn't easy, but I can tell she holds my hand in this journey. Thank you Alison! ❤️

Alison has been amazing and really helped me start working through a traumatic experience from my past. I was able to open up to her after a short time and feel safe talking to her. I would highly recommend her.

Written by A.L. on Jun 20, 2017 after counseling with Alison for 3 weeks depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, and trauma and abuse

Alison is one of the best counselors I've ever had including ones that I've seen in person. She asks me questions so we can try to find the root of my problems, she engages me in conversation and I feel she genuinely cares about me and what I'm going through. She's a great counselor and I feel lucky to have found her!

Alison is great; she's attentive in all the right ways and has great suggestions on how to break through. She's gentle in her approach, asking plenty of questions to understand but then provides resources and support to help you along the way. She's been a pleasure to work with.

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 also appreciate that she usually has ideas of things I can do outside of our sessions to expand and build on what we've talked about. She has been a fresh breath of air into my spirit.

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.

I have only been working with Alison for a couple of weeks but it has been really helpful. She is very kind, dedicated and it is easy to talk to her about anything without feeling judged. She also offers Christian counselling (but without forcing it on you) which has been great.
