i have seen defenders counter-attacking with their forehand, but i think that because attacker is more closer to the table, he would attack more effectively. Is counter-attacking as a defender a good option?

Yes counterattacking as a defender makes it more awkward for the attacking player usually.

If the attacking player can get into a rhythm of attacking and controlling the rally then the defenders attack can break that up.

Often the attack of a defender is a little different to a usual topspin attack so it is something that the attacker doesn't see very often.
