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!

Alison does a fabulous job listening, connecting, and respecting me and my concerns. She is real and does not preach, but offers applicable suggestions. I feel a great respect and can confide in her.
Alison helped me through some seriously tough times and provided realistic solutions to the problems I had. I'm very grateful to have encountered her on here.
Alison is amazing. It is really hard for me to put into words how much she’s helped me. She is compassionate, understanding and so so helpful. I only wish I had signed up for BetterHelp sooner! Thank you so much for your help thus far on my journey. :)
So far I am really happy with Alison. I was expecting so much less when I signed up for this service, my first experience with counseling of any kind. She is intelligent, intuitive, and not afraid to tell it like it is, exactly what I believe I've needed.
This has been one of the happiest times of my life. I've been doing therapy for 20 years and it's the first time I was able to significantly reduce medications while improving my anxiety. Alison helped me dealing with my panic attacks and getting my life back on track and closer than ever to my family. Guess I'll never be thankful enough <3
I am always amazed at how much progress I make after talking with Alison. It seems like a friendly chat but my life is quickly becoming healthy. Alison is real, honest and open and I appreciate all the help she has given me.
I just started counseling with Alison Mell and our communication is a lot better than when we first started. I just needed to understand her communication boundaries for us both to be effective. She is one of the few people in the world that actually cares deeply for others, so maybe you would like her as an counselor :)
Friendly, helpful and has actually helped me make strides when it comes to how I handle certain situations, always has good insight and ideas to keep me going down the right path.
I am very pleased with Alison's efforts. My situation is very challenging but she never failed to be encouraging and offer support and advise. She is very talented and i am thankful for her counsel.
Alison has helped me tremendously in ever way. I would recommend her to anyone, she is kind and caring, and she listens well. She also gives amazing advice and perspective.
A wonderful ear to vent to. She can slice through my waves of emotions and pick out the true issues. It's so wonderfully refreshing!
Alison has helped guide me towards a better perspective on life. Her job isn’t to cure me but what she has done is help me realize I can get past this and the fact she doesn’t judge me, is a nice feeling.
We have learned a lot and I hope that we can continue making positive change!
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 has been great at providing information to support me and it will be extremely beneficial moving forward to allow me to build a solid foundation.
Alison is great. She understood my concerns and provided thoughtful and helpful responses.
Allison is amazing. She listens, understands, and empathizes. It is great to know that she is always there for me.
Alison asks the right questions, is very helpful and encourages weekly phone chats. She is an easy person to talk to and makes things easy to understand. She helps in a way unique to the individual.
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!
I was pleasantly surprised at how well our phone session went. Alison is very insightful and a great counselor.
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.
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!
This is my first experience with a therapist and I am beyond impressed. Alison has really helped me to get clarity on my life and the challenges I have been facing. She is very quick at responding to! I would highly recommend BetterHelp and Alison to anyone who asks. Best money I have spent in a while!
Alison has been great. She replies quickly and thoughtfully. I felt lighter after our first conversation.
Alison is attentive and transparent.
Alison is very attentive to my needs. Great listener and will give advice as to move forward.
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.
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.
Alison has been patient and thoughtful and has a friendly, personable manner.
Alison Mell is patient, caring, and she is a responsible therapist. What she has provided me is good so far. She makes me feel comfortable, she listens, and gives good suggestions.
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.
I really like talking to her. Alison has been a great help and is completely understanding and willing to help me out with what I'm going through.
Allison has been kind and very helpful.
She is very attentive and resourceful.
