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!

Written by L.I. on Dec 29, 2018 after counseling with Alison for 2 weeks

Allison has been instrumental in helping me resolve my personal conflicts. She actively listens with compassion and empathy. 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.

Written by J.E. on Oct 19, 2018 after counseling with Alison for 4 months on issues concerning depression, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

I love Alison's support, the way she makes applicable suggestions in a non-condemning way, and the way she connects me. I would not trade her in for anything! However, there are times when I wish she would let me do a little more of the talking.

Written by H.O. on Sep 21, 2018 after counseling with Alison for 1 year on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and career difficulties

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 Mell has been a wonderful help to me and it does help keep me positive, out of a depressing home life. She does work hard to help you.
