I am a licensed therapist in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Georgia. For over 10 years I have worked in multiple settings and with people from varied backgrounds facing many different life stressors including anxiety, depression, substance abuse and relational conflict. In addition to providing individual therapy, I have conducted therapeutic groups, worked with children and families, and in multiple settings including community centers and inpatient facilities.
My counseling style focuses mainly around cognitive behavioral therapy to improve the thought processes that sometimes hold us back from living our best lives. I also incorporate holistic and solution-focused techniques as needed and attempt to keep the therapeutic process open to find what will work best for each client. I believe each person already has what is needed for their own personal growth and see my role as facilitator on your journey to positive change.
In my spare time, I am an avid baker, enjoy hiking with family and friends, and love spending time with my two nieces and nephew.

Varayna has been a wonderful counselor. She struck a great balance between validating my concerns/experiences and encouraging me to think of alternative ways to react to them. She guided me to come up with new ways to manage the concerns I was having that led me to seek counseling. Varayna has a calm, gentle persona and I always felt better after each counseling session.
I can't say enough how wonderful it was to have Varayna Cordell as my counselor. She listened patiently to all of my concerns and gave great feedback. She was very responsive on the message board and always on time for our sessions. I was working through a very rough period of time in my life and was making some major life transitions. Talking to Varayna Cordell during that time was essential to helping me stay calm, level headed, and able to process all of my stress. I am grateful I got the chance to work with her!
