My name is Deborah Walach and I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas, with over 17 years experience working with adults and adolescents. I specialize in issues related to Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Grief and Addictions.
My counseling style is compassionate and direct. I use CBT, solution focused, and mindfulness therapies to help resolve negative thoughts and emotions and work towards more realistic and positive self-assessment. We tend to be harder on ourselves than anyone else! My job as your therapist is to provide non-judgmental feedback and challenge you to address areas where you feel stuck. It is possible to move towards living the life you want.
It takes courage to put yourself out there and ask for help. It is scary to put personal things out there or admit that we might need to change. If you are ready to take the next step I am here to help!
I look forward to working with you!

Deborah Walach was a fantastic therapist for me and I would highly recommend her to anyone else looking for therapy. She is kind, respectful, funny, and very knowledgeable. She helped navigate me through some of the most difficult times in my life and I am so grateful for her help. She does an excellent job analyzing areas you want to improve on and showing you how to accomplish those goals. She is prepared with material for you to work on in your own time and has many ideas on how to navigate anxiety and ocd behaviours. She makes me feel so comfortable and I always leave in a happier mood when I’m finished my session with her.
Thank you so much Deborah.
Deborah is very helpful and has a lot of expertise.
Deborah Walach is a great therapist and she has helped me a lot more than she knows in such a short amount of time. She's very friendly and kind, understanding and always professional. She is amazing and I would recommend to almost every person I know.
Love her service , she meets all my needs , answer all my question and concerns I have. Love her ❤️
I feel heard and advised well
Ms. Walach has helped me a lot from when I initially began therapy and had a lot of anxiety. I've learned how to manage my anxiety and continue to learn new coping mechanisms a year later. Ms. Walach has been extremely patient with me and makes me feel seen and understood. I strongly recommend her.
Deborah is very knowledgeable and personable. Her expertise in my needed counseling was the best match I could possibly have gotten.
This was my first time seeking help from a therapist. I was obviously nervous and didn’t know what to expect. Deborah has been absolutely amazing. She is very helpful and gives great insight. She helps me thoroughly come to an understanding of all the questions and things I’m going through. I’m glad to say my mental health has drastically improved since I’ve been working with her. I strongly recommend her to help anyone else who’s in need.
She makes me feel comfortable & like I’m talking to an old friend. She is professional & down to earth while still letting me know she is human too. I love that! I can be completely honest with her & know whatever her response will be, it will be to help me.
Deborah is compassionate, knowledgeable and understands the goals I have in counseling. I appreciate her non-judgmental attitude and how she is willing to share personal connections during our time.
I was very nervous about starting therapy a few months ago but Deb has been incredibly helpful and supportive through all the items I have been slowly working through. She is never judgmental and is always available when I need to chat.
Truly a great therapist! She is so easy-going and relatable that it feels just like talking to a close friend. Her methods guided me to understand parts of my brain that I didn't even realize were the problem. Highly recommend!
Deborah shows a level of patience and empathy that comes with experience. She lets you (the client) guide the session while pushing you in the direction of areas you need work on (and provides solutions/techniques to help). She is great and I hope more people get to work with her!
She is very patient....
Deborah is incredibly personable. I have felt comfortable with her since our first session and feel that she really hears me--not just listens.
Deb is fantastic!!!
Deborah provides a safe space for me to talk about my life without feeling like I am burdening her. She gives me great advice and is the type of active listener I need in a counselor.
I am lost for words at how much Deborah Walach has helped me. I have seen counselors before that felt so impersonal... but that is not Deborah. She took time to know me and share about herself. I was comfortable before we started working through the modules, which allowed me to relax when the work got hard. I didn't even know all of the ways that my trauma has impacted my life, but this therapy actually works. She cares, she listens, and she understands on a deeper level. I am so thankful and fortunate to have started BetterHelp. Deborah has been the perfect match for my therapy needs. She's been real with me while still being gentle, and she's pushed me to be my better self. Thank you BetterHelp & thank you Deborah Walach.
Appreciate her warmth combined with telling it like it is. She makes great suggestions that I may not want to hear but need to hear and follows up.
Deborah is authentic, investing in my healing and wonderful to talk to! So grateful to have found her as she is helping me work through a lot of feelings and issues I have been putting off. Thanks Deborah! 10/10 recommend her as a therapist to any other trauma survivors.
I am a female age 58 and have never had therapy. I've needed it since I was very young. Deborah is on point with me. I love talking to her, letting out all the bad stuff out of the closet. She listens and suggest things that I never thought of. She's really helping me. I've been through some really rough stuff and she really is helping me to let some of it go. I highly recommend her to anyone thats had all kinds of abuse, traumas, loneliness and anxiety. She's helped me to see a small light in my tunnel so far. I've had almost a month with her and plan on keeping her until she tells me it's time to fly solo! ❤️
I have only worked with Deborah for a few weeks but she has already helped me a ton! She is caring and a good listener and will tell you straight up and be completely honest. I have loved working with her so far!
She is great!
Deborah does an excellent job. I would highly recommend Deborah.
Deborah has been fantastic to work with. She’s very kind and very real, which I appreciate. She’s helped me explore how I’m feeling at a different and more positive level, which is something I really struggled with in the past. I very much enjoy working with Deborah!
So far, so good. Deborah is attentive, asks quality follow up questions, and genuinely cares.
I am so thankful that I took the plunge to join this app. I was a little hesitant, but it was so worth it. I’ve been going to counseling for years, but having the online format has made it much more manageable time wise due to the flexibility. Deborah has been great as I’m transitioning into several huge next steps in my life. I feel supported, heard, and appreciated. She offers a sincere and honest approach to all constructive conversations, and I’m thankful to have.
I am so grateful that Deborah is patient and able to reply well. Thank you!
Mrs. Walach is outstanding. She's has a vast knowledge base and is incredibly understanding along with being a very patient person. She's by far one if not the best counselor I've ever had the opportunity to work with.
She is just amazing. I really have struggled disclosing private information to people in the past but she’s just a fabulous listener and kind person.
She is a really easy person to talk to. She has a lot of insight on the choices I make that have been super helpful. She is extremely non judgmental. I highly recommend her.
I have fought going to counseling for years. It’s the same dumb belief that there is something wrong with you to do so. I have been very pleasantly surprised working with Deborah. She is a good listener, and I really like the fact that she will challenge you both on your perceptions and behaviors. She is compassionate, but what I appreciate is her openness. I imagined counseling being people whining and wanting someone to feel sorry for them. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. Deborah is so good at challenging you to get better and I love the accountability of checking in with her on my progress. I’ve battled anger management for years and she’s so good at holding you accountable without it feeling judgmental and I love her candor with other issues I’m facing. It’s been a positive experience and I’ve already felt growth after just a few weeks.
Deborah was amazing! She helped me to better understand the stages of grief that I was going through and really worked with me to better understand myself. Without having her by my side I am not sure I could have made such a great recovery from such a horrible time in my life. She was firm when she needed to be but also very caring and loving. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
She has been really helpful in identifying what I can do to have a better future with my family and how to deal with my stress and anxiety. She is the only counselor I have had that has actually listened to me and has actually helped. 10/10
Deborah knows the situation inside/out and is both very frank and also very kind. I appreciate her wise counsel and guidance. It's helping me do my work.
Deborah’s wonderful. She’s there to listen, give recommendations when I need them and gives me time to think things through.
Over the past few weeks with Ms. Walach the techniques and expertise shared are ones that have assisted me in my road towards recovery. I am thankful to have the opportunity to have her show me a better path.
Deborah is a great councilor. She’s is very attentive and seems to care about helping you. I would recommend her to friends.
She’s very nice and obviously cares. She doesn’t press you to talk about things you’re not ready to, but still offers ways to help.
Deborah has been very helpful, engaging, and very down to earth. I feel like I am talking to a non judgmental equal, not being talked down to. She has had very helpful suggestions, goal setting and I feel much better after just 2 sessions.
She is very professional and helpful.
She's great. I've always been ashamed to talk to a counselor and she makes me feel very much at ease and I can't thank her more for that.
