I have been a therapist for over 17 years, and have had the privilege to serve a very wide demographic of individuals and groups as an owner of a private practice as well as executive coach. While an owner of a private practice, I trained in many areas of specialty, so I could provide the best quality therapy for anyone that was introduced to our clinic, and especially those that my associate therapists were not trained to serve and help. My areas of specialties include PTSD, Sexual Abuse Recovery, Depression, Anxiety, Couples Therapy and Relationship Issues, Grief and Loss, Sexual Issues and Dysfunction, Addiction Issues, Personality and Mood Disorders, Self-harm and Eating Disorders, Spiritual Issues, Addiction, Mediation, Career Counseling and Life Coaching.
I thoroughly enjoy what I do, and consider it a privilege to walk alongside someone through sometimes the most difficult time in their life. It is an honor to be trusted to encourage and provide tools to help people transform their lives. Both reactive therapy (helping people recover and thrive in life) and proactive coaching (helping people achieve their goals) are enjoyable for me, so no matter what your goals are, if you feel I am a fit for you, I will do my best to help you achieve those goals as quickly as possible. I work from a brief therapy model, but will extend the treatment plan as agreed and needed if other issues present.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you move forward from a place of feeling "stuck" to achieving wellness. Let's get started!

Highly professional, attentive and caring. Debra understands where your concerns are and takes the steps to address them. Love getting the notes and helpful reading material she sends through.
I have been really impressed with my experience with Better help and Debra, definitely recommend it.
So far I’ve loved chatting with Debra about my personal and relationship issues.
I appreciate Debra understanding me and listening to me.
Debra is awesome! She listens well and has helped me a lot in the short amount of time that I have been on here for. I highly recommend her!
She is amazing. She has helped me through a very tough time in my life.
Debra has helped me put into words the feelings I’ve been experiencing so that I can get what I need out of therapy. Her therapy equipped me with the necessary tools to assist me in my day to day activities and help me get back to a normal I’m happy with.
Debra is amazing, She is helping me walk through tough things.
Debra is very compassionate and understanding. I feel very comfortable opening up to her
Debra is caring, intelligent and supportive. She is like a good friend who is able to guide a person through difficult situations. She is wise when providing insight and advice. She answers my questions in a quick and thoughtful manner. I have recommended her to a friend and I am confident that she will be able to help her. She has provided me with help and hope during one of the most difficult times in my life and I am forever grateful for finding this excellent therapist.
Debra has helped me in so many ways. She truly tells me what i need to hear and helps me to process through daily life. I am so so grateful for her and how quickly she gets back to me
Still early, but so far seems to pick up on things quickly.
She cares and is very helpful.
Thank you for being so kind and understanding
Debra has been awesome for me so far! She really helps me to narrow down my focus and thinks of things that are best for me when I am thinking of what is most beneficial for so many other people. She allows me an open and objective safe space to get objective input and I really appreciate her filtering some things for me and allowing me to dig deeper into thoughts or ideas that perhaps I have not thought through completely or I may have a misguided understanding of. I will be using her regularly and she makes herself available daily for me! I do not know what I would do if I did not have her during this difficult time. She is nurturing, considerate, caring, and has been doing an awesome job!
I like her a lot :) she feels like a friend I can relate you and connect with
Debra has helped me so much in a very short period of time. She's been wonderful.
Really great counselor! She’s there to listen and help, and I’ve been using the techniques that she’s suggested to calm down my anxiety. Would definitely recommend her.
I just started counseling with Debra and it’s so much better than expected! I feel like I’m getting real help and support. It’s just what I needed. She’s amazing.
Debra Arseneaux is very helpful and supportive, and very good at giving new or different perspectives on looking at things. She’s genuinely loving and concerned, and empathetic. That either comes natural or you’re gifted with it, or it takes years of experience to imitate those feelings properly.. and if it doesn’t come naturally, it’ll make you exhausted. She never seems exhausted.
She’s extremely caring and listens to what you have to say she asks all the right questions to help you think about your current situation. I really enjoy having her as my counselor.
Debra has leveled me out! My moods tend to vary and if I disagree with someone it can either really bring me down, or I can flip out on them. Since her she’s taught me to see their side and just disagree gracefully. I haven’t screamed at my boyfriend since starting better help and I’m so happy we can finally communicate better!
I appreciate you helping me diagnose my OCD and compulsive behaviour but I'm hoping for more ways to improve my behaviour and thoughts. I understand it’s only been a couple of weeks but I’m really hoping that I’m able to change the way my mind works.
Debra has been the first professional to finally help me and actually make me feel like I'm not broken.
I’m glad to be back with her.
After only one session by phone with Deborah she was able to zero in on my concerns and struggles and set up a plan of action for me and a way for us to communicate daily so I can share my progress with her each day, which allows her to reevaluate and continue to offer helpful strategies.
I am progressing at this time and am satisfied with my therapist.
My counselor has been very helpful and insightful. She responds back within a day and is compassionate.
Working with Debra has been a valuable experience, especially in such uncertain times. She is respectful and caring and it is great to have someone to turn to any time of the day.
Debra is amazing. I actually feel like she’s listening.
Debra offers amazing guidance. Her responses are always spot on. It’s like I’m speaking to an old friend that I can share anything with, and I am typically a pretty private person. Debra's words are kind and knowledgeable. She just gets me!
I was at a point in depression where I had lost the motivation to do anything in life or even to live, and I firmly believed that I could not be helped unless the cause of my depression goes away. But Debra listened patiently to me and slowly helped me get out of it. It is unbelievable for me to think of how much my mental health improved just in a matter of months. She is very kind and motivating. She never made me feel pressurized for anything, and allowed me get over my issues by her insightful discussions and worksheets.
Debra is the best counselor I found on here so far!!! She actually cares about what I say and I dont feel like she's just here to collect a paycheck. I would recommend her 100%!
Debra has been a big help to me in such a short time. Shes helped me put things in perspective and help me realize my own self worth and give me hope that things will get better.
Debra is excellent. She listens and is non judgmental and extremely knowledgeable. I look forward to talking to her.
Debra is an outstanding counselor, she always gives me more than one point of view. Never gives me what I want to hear, but what I need to hear. I truly appreciate her as my counselor.
Debra has been a supportive and flexible counselor for me. She is quick minded, caring and puts things in ways that I can hear. I strongly recommend her.
Really great person to talk to and really understand what i was feel and going through. I would definitely recommend Debra to anyone and will continue with her. Thank you Debra and BetterHelp for these amazing program.
It has been great working with Debra. This is my first time trying BetterHelp or any remote therapy at all, and Debra has made it a great experience. She sends me useful work sheets and asks me good questions to get me rethinking things. She also responds to me quickly and checks in regularly.
She is very good at intuitively listening and getting to what needs to be worked on without pushing too hard. Debra has made herself available and I feel that she is completely non-judgmental which is key in a successful counselor.
Debra Arseneaux has helped me focus on my personal goals in life instead of the troubling things going on. With her guidance, I was able to accomplish many of my goals and have was able to improve my life significantly. I believe she is very open minded and is able to truly provide help and guidance to those who need it. I thank her for getting out of my “stuck” place, and helping me get on the right path :)
We have a great time learning from Deb!
Wonderful counselor, gets right to the point in a loving and respectful way. Debra has made a huge impact in helping me overcome issues that brought me to counseling.
Debra is patient and understanding. I recommend!
I really appreciate all of the attentiveness Debra has shown me, I appreciate how she always check in on me and makes me feel like I have a safe non judgmental place and person to talk to.
My first experience of BetterHelp is really helpful and the way she just changes the way you think and changes your negative mindset in to positive one is impressive.
