Deborah Walach

(MA, LPC, CCMHC)

About Me

Hello!
My name is Deborah Walach and I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas, with over 12 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 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!

Deborah is incredibly personable. I have felt comfortable with her since our first session and feel that she really hears me--not just listens.

Miss Walach is very helpful when it comes to scheduling and also helping you learn to cope with anxiety.

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.

Written by A.N. on Nov 03, 2020 after counseling with Deborah for 4 months on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

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.

Written by G.A. on Aug 31, 2020 after counseling with Deborah for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and grief

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! ❤️

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.

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.

Written by A.S. on Apr 14, 2020 after counseling with Deborah for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, eating disorders, and self esteem

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.

Written by A.M. on Mar 07, 2020 after counseling with Deborah for 7 months on issues concerning depression, addictions, and eating disorders

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.

Written by M.I. on Feb 26, 2020 after counseling with Deborah for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, anger management, and coping with life changes

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 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'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.
