About me

Hello, I am Mariel Moore. I'm a licensed LPC, License Practical Counselor in the state of Alabama. I am so happy that you are reading about me. I have been in the counseling field for over ten years. I have worked with independent agencies doing substance abuse counseling. The substance abuse counseling was inpatient and outpatient. I am presently in private practice. I work with children, teenagers, and family units. I graduated from Amridge University with a PhD. in Family Therapy in 2016.

My primary therapy orientation is personal-centered as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I believe in a personal center approach and utilizing positive regard for all clients. I like to use a cooperative approach with the clients. I love for the client to set goals and objectives for future progress. I desire all the therapy sessions to be authentic and balanced. I incorporate great listening skills and empathy. I work with my client to maintain progress from session to session.

I understand each client is different and has their own personality. I utilize individual treatment plans for each client. I gather new materials from research to make every session new for each client.

I worked with children, teenagers, and adults suffering from depression, anxiety, ADHD, Conduct Disorder, Adjustment Disorder, Grief, and other childhood disorders. I also work with local physicians’ offices with some patients managing terminal illnesses. I utilize the integrated approach with medicine and counseling to help the client and their families adjust to their present reality.
I have also worked with clients involving some career path, self-esteem building, coping skills, team-building skills, and transitions in everyday issues that have some stuck.
My passion and goals are to help clients find their authentic self and to improve their relationship with self and others to find peace and a deeper appreciation of self. With children and under adults I work with the family system as I believe that if one family member is impacted, all the members are impacted in certain ways.

I feel like I am talking to a much wiser friend, that has a lot of understanding, patience and compassion.
She genuinely care, I have no doubt.
Great human being, a rare commodity these days.

Dr. Moore is as compassionate as she is wise and has helped me tremendously through a very tough time in my life. Her counsel was consistently insightful and effective. Be sure to follow through on her suggestions to get the full benefit of her advice. She draws from a deep well of knowledge and experience and I always felt like she really could see my situation clearly when many others I've reached out to for help had trouble understanding. I was having problems with my sleep and experiencing persistent spiritual attacks. After only a few months of her counsel I'm now sleeping much better and no longer dread the nighttime. This is a huge breakthrough and victory for me and I'm so thankful to her for this!

I feel like Dr. Moore struggles with understanding my timezone. I live in California (PDT) so our time zones are different. She couldn’t show up for my sessions in the way that I needed because she kept treating our sessions like it was on her time. Even after I explained it to her, she told me I should find another therapist rather than taking accountability and changing this. I will find someone who can help me. I tried all that I could do so now it’s time to move on. That’s self-awareness and healing for me. I truly hope she improves this behavior.
