Adrian Varnadore


I grew up in Southeast Arkansas and moved to NWA, with my daughter, several years ago. I have a background in the pharmaceutical industry, education, and mental health. I was a non-traditional student when I attended the University of Arkansas in Pine Bluff, where I earned my teaching degree in secondary English Education. I can confidently say that I am culturally competent, in large part, through my experience at UAPB. My goal, after teaching for a time, was to earn my master’s degree. I met that goal and earned my counseling degree and license, with the added certification to offer telehealth, after moving to NWA.

I thrive working with individuals coming from a wide variety of backgrounds and demographics. I focus on working with families and individuals in transition such as grief/loss, housing/economical insecurities, divorce, and disruptions. I advocate for suicide awareness and for those impacted by suicidal behaviors and self-harm, with an intense focus on implementing a high level of care and compassion to help save lives. I am well acquainted with grief and loss, both expected and unexpected. I am versed in working through trauma and transitional seasons of life. With this, in unison with my training, I am confident that I can help you rediscover your unique purpose, bringing about fulfillment in your life.
