About me

Welcome! Thank you for taking a minute to explore a bit about who I am. My name is Paul Deutsch and I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor for the past 15 years. I recently received my Doctorate of Education in Counselor Education and Supervision from Viterbo University. I have been working in a community based rural setting for my career. I have been a member of clinical teams and have been working in a solo practice for the past 4 years. I have a broad base of clinical skills with an emphasis on complex challenges like personality disorders (and related concerns like self-harm), depression, anxiety and panic, LGBTQ stressors, family dynamics and the various forms of marital conflict.

My theory of practice is based in a Humanistic approach. I could be seen as a Post-modern (Solution-Focused, Narrative) but also have strong ties to interventions related to Cognitive Behavioral Theory and Radical Acceptance. I am deeply connected to the metaphysical qualities and energy work associated with our mental process, both as it relates to our relationship with our intuition and our interactions with our external worlds. These skills connected with my understanding of neuroscience and brain functionality have supported my effective use of language to develop deep and supportive rapports with my clients.

I spend my time off from counseling as a Personal Trainer and Strength and Conditioning coach and have extensive training in nutrition and physical wellbeing. I also love to ski and ride fat tire bike. An additional skill set is within Business Coaching and have helped many clients improve their work lives, keep jobs or change to better ones while supporting an improved sense of self. I look forward to having the opportunity to find ways that I can support your journey. The road is hard and living a life brings suffering but these days we don't have to do that alone.

Be well, Paul

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Paul Deutsch. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Dr. Deutsch is very knowledgable and it was clear from the start that he has lots of experience in this field. The approach we used was strength focused which was incredibly helpful. I'd recommend him to anyone looking for a "spotter" - to notice your thought processes, and walk you through them with honesty and respect.

I completely trust Dr. Deutsch. His expertise is apparent in how he gently challenges my beliefs and offers education to support my questions or concerns as they come up.

This Gentleman was able to give me the tools needed to handle the experiences I was going through. He also took the time to help me realize where I was shorting myself and some ways to rethink my feelings. Overall I had a positive experience with him and wanted to say Thank You.

I have been seeing Dr. Deutsch for about four months now and I love his style and his advice. He has so much experience. There are times when I feel that I don’t have much to talk about because my life is running smoothly, but I choose to keep the sessions going because I always get something out of it.
I’m really glad that I chose to do BetterHelp and I really cannot recommend BetterHelp as well as my therapist in particular.

Dr paul is the best!! He actually listens and give advice as other therapists that I’ve seen in person just listen and really don’t give much advice. He is definitely helpful and has a great engaging personality. Thx dr paul.
