Alyssa Mandel, LCSW, MSW, CEDS, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Scottsdale
I am the founder and Director of The Mandel Center of Arizona and have created an environment to promote psychotherapeutic healing to people in need. My philosophy centers on empowering clients through the therapeutic relationship.

I provide a safe environment that promotes personal growth using proven therapeutic techniques and over 20+ years of experience.
