Meet Alan Vanell, MA, LMHC

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York and I earned my Master’s from George Washington University. I entered this profession to encourage and promote the growth of all diverse people, which includes the many facets of race, culture, gender, sexuality, and socio-economic differences.

I am a trained EMDR therapist (EMDRIA approved) and I have specialized training in Attachment-based protocol with resource tapping. In addition, I am trained in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), which emphasizes the importance of a strong/safe therapeutic relationship to “undo-aloneness” and process emotions to completion through a secure relationship with the therapist (myself).

I have a passion for diversity and inclusiveness for all the many people who exist within this world. I strive to provide non-judgmental, affirming, and empathic therapy to all people, no matter how you may identify. And as a therapist, it is my goal to help identify the many positive strengths and qualities that already exist within you, which are waiting to be discovered and transformed into the present life.
