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.
If clients want to discuss their Christian or spiritual beliefs I will be available to do so. My education shaped me professionally to help people explore questions about faith from a place that begins with the belief that God loves us and he wants to have a relationship with us. My faith has strengthened with receiving counsel from the Holy Spirit. Self is the spiritual battlefield site for us and I am confident knowing this: mental health dysfunctions that affect the self are eradicated by a heart change. I can help you through this time in your life.
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 symptoms concerning emotional dis-regulation of depression and anxiety often associated with attachment/abandonment wounds that create 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 worked with Beverly for several months in 2018, after realizing that depression and anxiety were ruling my life far more than reasonable. I reached a breaking point of dealing with things on my own or with the help of my then-boyfriend (now husband), and felt like a burden to those around me. Working with Beverly was a game-changer for me. She immediately equipped me with several books that I still reference to this day, and helped me to realize that "I can stand it" when life happens. I have mantras in my mind that I learned from working with her, and now when stress happens or if I have a depressive episode, I weather it 90% better than I did in the past, and that is more of an improvement than I could have asked for! She is compassionate, experienced, a great listener, and I truly enjoyed working with her. I have been in counseling many times in the past to address different things, but working with her online was amazing because I could talk to her online between sessions, which I really needed at the time. It was a fantastic experience, and I would definitely work with her again if any issues arose that I needed help with. She is a fantastic counselor!!
Beverly is a kind and warm hearted soul. She is highly intelligent and can quickly discern your emotions (for me-I had trouble) and give you guidance. She responds to your text and is respectful to your feelings.
She was very helpful. She helped me through my impending divorce and I came out of it 10 weeks later happy with life ,happy with myself, and not needing another person to enjoy life. I'm sure I will get remarried again someday but I'm thrilled to be able to go through life not having to make somebody else happy to be happy with myself.
There are not enough words to describe how helpful Beverly has been. I may send her a sea of information and issues and replies with extremely helpful insight and reflection. She has shown me great tools that I had all along to manage my emotions and other things that were huge problems for me before. She is encouraging and passionate about her work and it’s evident in each session.
She has done a great job for me as a counselor.
Beverly has been very helpful, a great listener, and a great resource for me. Looking forward to more sessions!
Beverly did an amazing job helping me release myself from deep depression and anxiety. She presented me with a host of resources (books, videos, etc.) on selfcare, which met me right where I was, as well as listened carefully and intently to me during each session, providing guidance along the way. I can say without a doubt that Beverly has been an instrumental force aiding in an intense spiritual renewal and philosophical awakening for me.
Beverly is a strong, amazing, encouraging counselor. She understands my needs and helps me overcome my problems. I would recommend her to anyone. She is just amazing!
I’ve only been seeing Beverly for a few weeks but she has already helped so much. She has given me some tools to deal with my anxiety and I’ve felt a shift in my thinking already. I can’t wait to see where I am in a couple months.
Beverly is a very good counselor.
Beverly has been just wonderful with her advice, counseling skills. When I came to this site for the first time I was a mess emotionally. Was having trouble with my thoughts and emotions. Beverly listened, gave advice and help me go through the difficult process of feeling ashamed, dirty and not loved. She taught me to use the “I” Messages (they work), she validated my feelings, thoughts and doubts. She is an excellent counselor. I am most grateful for all her help.
Beverly is a very kind and sympathetic person. She is always considerate of my feelings and my comfort level. I would definitely recommend Beverly to anyone who is in need of counseling.
Beverly is my breath of fresh air every week. She helps me bring all the things going on around me back into perspective. She is always there when I message to give me the guidance to make it through all situations. I am blessed my God that she was assigned to me as my councilor!
I joined FaithfulCounseling thinking that I needed counseling regarding marital issues but as it turns out Beverly helped me realize that my troubles began in my childhood. That simple discovery was very profound to me because it gave me insight into who I am and who I’d like to become. She shared with me techniques to self regulate my mind and actions. I think she’s a good listener and her recommendations were tailored to my needs. Thank you so much. I am a work in progress.
I just want to thank Beverly for all her support and everything she has taught me. She taught me so much about how to be okay with voicing what you want and not feeling bad about it.
Very great listener. I feel as though I can talk openly and not be judged. She seems to also take her time to respond so she can respond in the correct way with the correct advice or her point of view. Very, very sweet and understanding so far, and look forward to continuing to having a great patient relationship with her. I HAVE NEVER EVER opened up so much and talked about so much bottled up stress and fears as I have with Beverly Vanover.
Beverly is great...she has been very helpful in giving me insight to my behaviors and is also a wonderfully caring counselor. She does hear me and seems to know and understand who I am.
I am so thankful for this service and so so so thankful for my wonderful counselor. She's a lifesaver, literally.
Beverly has been a beacon of hope while I’m going through so much transition in my life.
Beverly has been just what I was needing in this journey. She has such a welcoming spirit and acceptance. She is warm and calm, that it’s easy to be open. I trust her when I didn’t think it was possible to trust anyone.
I receive excellent suggestions from Beverly and spiritual direction as well. I would highly recommend her.
Beverly is great!
Beverly Vanover has helped me, she listens to what you have to say and she has answers and recommendations which I have not thought of. She is a Christian and it reflects in what she recommends to me. God can answer prayers and sometimes he uses people like Beverly to help us get to where we need to be. I want to thank her for her support and all that she has done for me.
So far, so great! She hit the nail on the head with where I need to start my new journey. I look forward to responses as they are all so positive and brighten my day.
Beverly is a great listener, very kind and understanding. She is always available to talk or message and has offered great advice as well as a listening ear.
Beverly was very professional, helpful and most of all respectful of what I was going through. She didn’t judge, she encouraged me and reminded me the entire time that God loves me and time would eventually bring about the change I wanted. I was grateful for her guidance and I would recommend her to anyone in need of counseling.
With the way my mind works I lost friends over my art/writing. My imagination makes people uncomfortable. Beverly made feel like a normal person and has been really helping me recover from it all. Even though I send walls of text she seems to be listening very well. I would recommend her in a heart beat to any one.
Beverly is a risk-free listener who feels like a loving best friend. She supports the healing process so much. Her responsiveness makes me feel valued and cared for. Best counseling situation I've ever experienced.
Beverly has been helpful and attentive to my struggle.
