Welcome to AKLE Tree

Madelfia A. Abb, LCMHC, NCC, CCMHC formed AKLE Tree Behavioral Health Counseling, PLLC based on the recognition that resiliency, empowerment, and psychological flexibility lead to mental health and wellness, enabling us to confront life's challenges. Madel is a retired military veteran and a graduate of the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at Wake Forest University. She completed her clinical internship at the Duke Cancer Institute where she served patients living with cancer and their families and caregivers. Her psychosocial oncology counseling experience led her to work with a range of age groups from young adults to senior citizens who are confronting life changing issues. Madel believes in providing compassionate, empathetic, unconditional positive regard, and genuine competent care and support. With a belief that every client is unique, Madel customizes her counseling approach based on the client's strengths and needs, using techniques founded on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness & Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Clinical Hypnosis, Existential Therapy, and Family Systems. Meeting a client where they are, Madel strives to understand a client's cultural perspectives and to establish a collaborative therapeutic alliance with them. Madel's most notable and cherished life roles are wife, mother, homeschooler, sister, aunt, friend, veteran, private pilot, walker, volunteer, and Netflix streamer. Welcome and come to AKLE Tree, a safe place to grow and discover the internal strength that makes each of us Extraordinary. At this time Madel is not accepting new clients. Please check back for updates.
