The Mandel Center of Arizona's experienced and caring professionals offer our clients emotional, physical and spiritual healing. Because all people are unique, our treatment plans are tailored to your individuality.

The Mandel Center of Arizona, LLC and Alyssa Mandel, LCSW, CEDS, offer an environment that promotes psychotherapeutic healing to people in need. The focus of my philosophy is to empower clients through the therapeutic relationship. I work with clients from a non-judgmental perspective that develops a comfortable and trusting environment. By "being where the client is", the time spent in treatment is made more productive for all involved. My philosophy is based on a "strengths-based" perspective. I have experience working with people from diverse backgrounds with numerous presenting problems. I am honest and "real" and strive to make true connections with my clients, assisting in promoting their strengths while helping them recognize and manage their challenges.

Welcome to the Mandel Center of Arizona.
I founded the Center under the mission of helping my clients achieve better living through the accomplishment of their therapeutic goals. I provide personalized support and guidance to my clients, tailoring the therapeutic experience to the individual needs of each person. I invite you to explore my website, and to contact me for more information.

The Mandel Center of Arizona recognizes the importance of an interdisciplinary team approach to therapy — I work in partnership with many Behavioral Health Professionals such as Social Workers, Psychiatrists and Psychologists. Physicians and Nutritionists/R.D.'s are also used when deemed appropriate. This well-rounded approach ensures that the relevant aspects of each client’s health are addressed appropriately and in a coordinated fashion.
