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.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Mariel Moore. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
She is my rock.
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.
Awesome therapist, offers great solutions
She’s understanding and she completely listens. Very funny too. Sorry I’m bad at reviews
Very good therapist! Listens well, very patient, understanding, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. I would definitely recommend her to others.
Mariel is really good at listening and honing in on what to focus on. She asks great questions that help prompt good thinking a perspective.
Mariel has listened to my concerns and has assisted me with navigating through some difficult decisions. I’m so thankful for her.
She is so sweet and such a great listener! Thank you for always checking in on me.
Very knowledgeable, good listener and with great advice, and what I like the most about her knowledge is that it all come from a place of experience, not just from theories and studies, so she is all rounded and well versed!
Mariel has been a lifesaver! She is a great listener and asks the right questions. She encourages me to make changes to solve issues but not blame myself. It has been easy to schedule appointments and make changes if my schedule changes.
She is the best, and so nice. She listens to me and had an amazing personality, I highly recommend her, I feel extremely comfortable around her
