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.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Parenting issues
I also have experience in Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Sleeping disorders, Anger management, Self esteem

Deborah has been fantastic since I started working with her a couple of months ago. She really knows how to break everything down and focus on what's important. She's a great listener and every problem I've come to her with, she has always given me tools or advice to deal with it. I'm excited to work with her further!
Can't recommend her enough. She's wonderful! So smart and so good at detecting what the real issues are!
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!
Very good - she helped me a lot.
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 that I get replies from her and that she checks up, and also seems to care about the problems I am having.
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.
She is so kind and respectable.
Deborah was always very responsive and welcoming. I felt good to chat with her and she really helped me to reflect my problems and life situation. She always came up with good hints and thoughts to work on and to consider. I would recommend her as a counselor for sure.
A very good counselor, very professional and non-judgmental.
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.
Deborah has been a fantastic fit. She's given me exercises to help work through bouts of anxiety and they've been working well. Also great just to talk to, and she's always checking in which I highly appreciate.
Deborah is amazing. She progresses at a pace that suits you - and ensures that your best interests are at heart. I highly recommend Deborah, she is changing my life.
Patient, helpful, caring and understanding. Very pleased this far!
