Deborah Russo

(LCSW)

About Me

Hello,

My name is Deborah Russo and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Boise, ID. with 6 years of experience at the Master's Level . Before I got my Master's Degree, I was a certified hypnotherapist for 10 years. I love therapy and I love helping people. I use a combination of conscious and subconscious therapies to help people make the changes they want to make in their lives. The therapies I use include hypnosis, EMDR, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy. I know that making changes can be very difficult and I do everything I can to help change be as lasting and as comfortable as possible. I believe that by freeing ourselves from past hurts we can not only heal but thrive. I work best with highly motivated people and I work with clients with depression, anxiety, addiction issues, parenting issues, and children's behavioral issues. I also have experience in helping people overcome sleep issues, improve self-esteem, and building family relationships.
When I am not counseling I love enjoying the outdoors. I love hiking with my dogs and a great deal of my spare time is spent wildlife watching. I also paint pet portraits and wildlife to relax and enjoy my own feelings of mindfulness.
If you are ready for changes I will look forward to working with you and helping you to achieve the goals that you want to meet.

Deborah has been instrumental to me on my journey.

She's a very understanding, caring and non judgemental person. She's helped me see things in many different perspectives, gain objectivity to my issues. I've learned a lot about myself since I started counseling with her. I could literally talk to her about anything while still feeling comfortable, regardless of how personal the issue is. I would highly recommend her. Her help could mean the world to many people!

I feel like she actually cares, shows understanding, and professional support. She helped me put order in my thoughts in moments I wasn't even sure what's right or wrong. I would definitely recommend her!

I love her. She has a warm, soothing manner, and is super smart. She has a way of asking the right questions and making me see things clearly. 10/10 will continue working with her!

She is a fantastic counsellor, she answers so shortly after I send a message and frequently, it is really nice. You can almost have a whole conversation with her over a day.

Deborah is a very kind and caring woman which shows in her messages. I always felt very welcomed by her and she handled everything I discussed in a non-judgmental way. Deborah gave me lots of great tools to deal with the situations that I was in. Her expertise were broad and she has extensive knowledge on different issues. I am very grateful for the hard work that she does.
