Varayna Cordell

(MA, LPC, LMHC)

About Me

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.

Written by M.E. on May 21, 2020 after counseling with Varayna for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, and anger management

Varayna is a great listener. Compassionate and caring. She was great at listening to what I was saying and helping me process my emotions and find better ways to think and deal with them. She offered different solutions and suggestions for handling issues and then would remember to follow up with me the next week. She’s awesome! Highly recommend.

Varayna is exceptional at listening. It feels like she wants to help and take the time to untangle any issues I’m faced with. I easily connected with her and I always look forward to our sessions!! I couldn’t think of a better person to be working with.

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!

Varayna is a wonderful counselor. I was very delighted after my first session with her. She is truly wonderful at her job and seems to understand the most complicated or difficult things. She helps me to understand how to move through life better with ideas, conversations, and general advice that takes into account what I am saying and needing. She is great at helping you to naturally process your thoughts by pulling out just enough information for you to see the answers! I have really enjoyed my time with her. She is very kind in nature and easy to speak with.
