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. I pride myself in my ability to work with relationships. I feel that this is one of my strengths as a counselor. I have helped many people in their relationships both as a couple and separately. At the same time though couples counseling does take two people to make it successful. If you are ready I have many Tools in my chest that I am ready to share!
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 think everyone should participate in a program like this regardless of what’s going on in their life. Especially if they are in a relationship.... it just keeps you in a good space.
Alison is great and committed to us individually and as a couple. She is easy to relate to as a real person, but her therapy abilities reach to the core issues and is very helpful.
Alison is amazing! She has helped me so much with multiple life concerns.
She listens and offers perspective.
She’s amazing. Very helpful.
Still the only therapist I can trust.
Alison is the easiest person to talk to. She has helped me through so many big events in life. So blessed to have her.
Alison has been very helpful for my wife and I. She offers a sympathetic ear for both of us, making sure to hear and validate both of our sides and feelings. She has pointed us toward resources that have aided us in better understanding ourselves and one another. She has made herself very available to talk on the phone with us, and although our conversations sometimes run longer than the standard hour for counseling, we have never felt rushed. While some counselors shy away from talking about themselves, I know my wife and I both appreciate hearing some of Alison's own stories about her relationship, as well, as they provide context for her thoughts and suggestions.
Alison is amazing. She's so good at giving homework and giving lots of things to think and work on between sessions and she gives LOTS of her time during calls and responds well on the forum. I'd recommend her to anyone. She helps you work on both you and your relationship.
Alison Mell has been extremely helpful. I’ve become more confident and feel like I can handle more stuff. I feel like my issues were heard and I was able to work through them with Alison’s help.
You’re a great counselor - you don’t take or play sides and make each of us feel heard. I have not once felt as if you didn’t hear what I said and tried to help me with it. Which to me is super important, because most of my life I haven’t felt heard. Thank you for being so great to me and my wife, Alison!
I feel like Alison Mell has been helpful in finding ways to communicate and work on the underlining issues in my marriage. She’s polite and doesn’t take sides so you don’t feel attacked and neither does your spouse.
Allison gave us hope and the guidance to communicate better and helped save our relationship. Truly helps to have someone put things in perspective. It helped us save our relationship and was a blessing to have found her.
She is amazing and usually responds pretty fast. She really takes the time to listen.
