Hello. My name is Beverly Vanover and I received my Master’s of Science Degree in Community Counseling from John Brown University in Siloam Springs, Arkansas. I was born in California and moved to Arkansas with my family as a child. I currently live in northwest Arkansas.
My experience in the field of mental health includes working as a community-based therapist, school-based therapist, hospital-based therapist and therapeutic day treatment therapist. I have experience facilitating mental health and 12-step program groups for the community, as well as in the institutional setting. I am a board certified telemental health counselor (BC-TMH), certified clinical trauma professional (CCTP) and a nationally certified counselor (NCC).
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Arkansas (TA-technology assisted), Missouri and Texas. I have a passion for learning about, discussing and treating emotional disregulation and symptoms of depression and anxiety often associated with codependency, love addiction and attachment/abandonment wounds that create fear of intimacy and toxic relationship problems. Please note that my clients will need to be located physically in either Arkansas, Missouri or Texas at the time of live sessions and when counseling occurs.
I want my clients to be partners in their healing. I want them to understand how powerful their minds are - how mind and body are connected. Healing of issues related to toxic relationships (narcissism, codependency), anxiety, depression, life transitions, lack of fulfillment or adjustment to change are possible. We will get through this together.
You want to be HEARD- I get it. You want to find your voice - I know that. If it is important to you, it is important to me! I know you are tired of doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. You want to get control of your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
People notice my passion for working to help them heal, feel heard, achieve goals and live the life they want to be living. I strongly relate to the term "wounded" healer so that means that I am compassionate FOR and empathic TO your needs. You will feel understood and cared for. Contact me to schedule an appointment. I can help you improve the quality of your life. Let's start today!

I have been very confident that Beverly can help me since we have begun our work together. She is very knowledgeable and responsive to what my concerns are, and has recommended resources that have also been very helpful to access outside of sessions. I highly recommend her!
Beverly is a great counselor. She will tell you things the way they are. I don't want to say she won't sugar coat things because she is nice about telling you things that you may not want to hear/like, but I appreciate that honesty and made me reflect a lot about myself and my circumstances. Very insightful and knowledgeable person and love all the resources that she has shared with me.
Beverly is an expert in her field with a compassionate heart.
Beverly is great. I’m always excited for our next session.
She’s great, super easy to talk to.
I had Beverly as a counselor before and had to quit due to funds. However I realized that my mental health is worth the money. I was much happier and felt like I can control my feeling with the techniques she provided. Even when I wasn't a "member" she still reached out and said she was still there when I was ready. I am excited to be back!
Beverly is an excellent counselor. She has helped me work through difficult issues and emotions at a difficult time in my life. She has offered helpful tools and new perspectives. I always feel as though I have grown in inner strength, and self-knowledge & understanding after our sessions. I feel as though she has helped me more than any other counselor I have had. I feel better equipped to navigate the difficult life journey I'm currently moving through, and I feel so very thankful for her.
Beverly has been such a great help since I began counseling. She takes the time to respond to me in a timely manner addressing my issues and helping me sort through them. She makes me feel at ease and is easy to talk to. The information she provides during our sessions has also been helpful along with reading material she recommends. Working with her has been great and opened my eyes to things and helped me understand things I did not before. She helps me to see the kaleidoscope of life for what it is and could be if I take necessary healthy approaches.
Beverly is a very kind, responsive counselor. She has helped me so much to work through my relationship issues and better myself in many ways. I appreciate that we do video sessions weekly but also communicate through the messages on the site between sessions. She sends me worksheets to help guide me through exercises between sessions as well, and I've found them to be very useful. I definitely recommend Beverly to be a great counselor to work with!
I’ve only had a couple of sessions with Beverly, but everything is going good. I’m very comfortable with speaking to her and she has been very informative in ideas to help me heal.
Beverly’s down to earth personality coupled with her expertise creates a safe and effective resource for healing trauma. I highly recommend her.
Beverly is thoughtful, accommodating and perceptive - she helps me understand things in ways that make my problems seem so much easier to overcome. She is sensitive and empathetic but also very pragmatic - she has helped me understand myself and my behavior and find practical solutions, as well as just being very nice and warm to speak to.
Beverly is amazing. She listens and gives suggestions!
Beverly is very attentive, professional and offers absolutely great counseling.
After years of dealing as best as I could with my depression and anxiety I thought that therapy wouldn't help me. Working with Beverly proved me wrong. She has my best interests at heart, and counseling has become a daily relief that makes life more than just manageable.
Bev does an awesome job during your sessions of allowing you to feel what you are feeling. She really works to understand what are going through and help you work your way out of it instead of telling you how to do it, which is a much harder, but much more rewarding way of doing it. She has a lot of tools at her disposal and provides them based on what you are talking with her about. I feel like she genuinely cares about what you are going through and knows how hard it is for people to even take this step, so she takes the measures to make you feel comfortable to be open and honest.
Beverly has really made a strong connection with me very early on. The worksheets and session chat rooms make it easy for me to get help with problems quickly and we can identify areas that I need help in. I truly appreciate this feature because when we have our live session she's already been caught up to everything that's been going on and we can address this problems, instead of the traditional counseling where you go and spend the first 30 minutes talking about your issues and problems you're going through. Beverly is genuine about knowing where I come from and knowing how to explain things to me that make no sense. I'm learning many techniques to help me manage my anxiety. I'm becoming more grounded and I know my family feels that as well. I've done therapy on and off for years and no one has made such an impact as Beverly has. Her Christian perspective is the steady hand in my walk with the Lord. She's pointing me towards him and her biblical knowledge re confirms what I know in my heart but that sometimes life tends to overwhelm. I'm so blessed that I found better help and that led me to Beverly.
Beverly has helped me so much just in the short time we have been communicating. I am so thankful and blessed to have found BetterHelp.
Very understanding. Great listener. Pays attention to details and is very empathetic. She’s awesome!
Beverly is patient, kind, and attentive. She is an amazing listener and gives you freedom to take conversations where you, as the patient, want to!
Love my counsler Beverly. She is very responsive when you are in time of need and she is very informative during sessions. She always provides material to read on that helps with your current situation! She helped me see a whole new perspective on things that I would consider the worst.
Beverly seems genuinely interested and helps keep me on track. I appreciate having her to help me work through so many things!

Beverly is very easy to talk to, and attentive!
I signed up for BetterHelp about a month ago due to my life spiraling out of control. I was struggling with alcohol and drug abuse, depression and was in a relationship that was falling apart. My first counselor helped me get somewhat back in control of my life, but she wasn't a perfect fit. Then I was matched with Beverly and she has been amazing. I told her my issues with my previous counselor and she listened and I could tell she actually cared, and made sure to always respond in a very timely fashion. She has given me fantastic guidance and advice, and given me the tools and resources I needed to get my life back on track. We are still working on some things but I can honestly say I'm in a better place now than I have been in years, and it's all thanks to this site and specifically Beverly. I would highly recommend her to anyone struggling with the same things as me, especially relationship issues.
Beverly is a great counselor and very respectful. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a therapist online.
