About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Linda is phenomenal. She is a compassionate and caring listener, who will provide the intellectual feedback you are yearning for. In my experience of only 3 sessions with her, I have already acquired skills in better understanding myself and others. I recommend completing the worksheets she provides. They help you reflect on each session, with a positive outlook in moving forward. Whatever your situation may be Linda is very open, accepting, and willing to help. She is just a great human being to her core. For once, I feel like I am not alone and I have never felt more positive about my life in a long time. Thank you Linda.

Linda has a gentle nature and positive outlook. The resources she shared with me after our first session helped me greatly within just a few weeks.

I have only been working with Linda for a few weeks and I am very impressed so far. Starting therapy is a scary and awkward time and she has made things feel very comfortable. She has a calm demeanor and seems to really care about her clients. I look forward to continuing to work with her.

For my first appointment I have to say she was very engaged. She really listen. She asked a question and literally let me answer without stopping me. I look forward working with her.

She's the best! She has helped me a lot.

D.A.·May 31, 2022


Linda was the 3rd person I talked to on BetterHelp. She is the BEST! Very kind, informative, and caring. Linda was very easy to connect with and I never felt awkward. Linda was very flexible with helping me find appointment times that worked with both our schedules. I would Highly recommend Linda to others!

She is wonderful and applies the her psychological knowledge to my current situation exquisitely.

J.U.·Mar 18, 2022


Linda has been incredibly helpful. When I am feeling overwhelmed by the week she coaches through the session to break all my problems down individually and make them feel manageable again. She gives continuously gives me tools to eliminate my stress as well.

A.M.·Mar 16, 2022


She is amazing and so easy to connect with…I feel she hears me and genuinely wants to help. A lot of breakthroughs in such a small period of time.

B.R.·Feb 25, 2022


Linda has been extremely professional and has helped guided me in the right direction with my grieving process. Linda has shown she is very knowledgeable on various situations and listens to what your concerns are. I strongly recommend Linda and I’m so incredibly thankful I was paired with her.

C.Y.·Feb 07, 2022


Linda is an extremely efficient listener and very good at allowing her client to conduct introspection. I’m very glad to have been able to experience her work and she has phenomenal resources that allowed me to answer many questions myself. Absolutely would recommend her sessions to anyone.

N.I.·Feb 03, 2022


always takes care to listen to the issue, offer realistic solutions & has helped me have many realizations about things I never considered or even realized were a problem until explored on deeper level.

N.I.·Jan 16, 2022


Linda is a great therapist. In the short time I have worked with her, she's given me very tangible tools and resources to help me with my anxiety, as well as take gentle steps toward healing my past traumas. I don't feel forced to talk about anything that I don't want to, and she is great with feedback about what I'd like to dig deeper into, for our next session. I enjoy talking to her as she is a great listener and makes me feel safe as well as validated in my feelings.

M.A.·Jan 06, 2022


Linda Gonzalez is a wonderful therapist. She is very knowledgable and helpful. And I feel very comfortable with her, somehow I can’t stop talking during our time together, which is weird for me. She’s great at asking questions that keep the conversation naturally moving, without prying. Linda has offered me wonderful advice and feedback about meditation, directing awareness and being present in the moment. I have seen a change for the better in the very short time I’ve been working with her.

J.U.·Dec 03, 2021


So far so good although Ive only had one session!

R.Y.·Nov 09, 2021


In two sessions Linda has given me several tools to help me define and work through my issues. She quickly gets to the heart of my situation so we can target resolution.

R.E.·Nov 07, 2021


I really like working with Linda. She is so kind and allows me to just ramble on when I’m nervous. She lets me take the time to speak and then gives me ways to ground myself and work on my mind and body together. I love her and I would highly recommend her.

M.A.·Oct 25, 2021


Linda is talented and a great match for me.

O.M.·Aug 18, 2021


Linda is one of the best therapists I have ever had! She is kind and always reminds me to center myself. The mindfulness techniques she has taught me have helped me develop skills that help me live with my mental illness. I am so grateful to her for helping me change my perspective and gear it towards authenticity and mindfulness.

S.A.·Jul 15, 2021


Despite having one talk she listened to what I had to say and gave me information that I thought was great.

S.A.·Jun 25, 2021


Linda has changed my life and only been in it a couple months! I truly appreciate every session we have and look forward to updating her every week. She always shares great resources and truly listens each week!

K.E.·Feb 27, 2021


Linda is warm, kind, and informative. She connected me with several resources to help. She is clearly an expert in her field. Highly recommended.

D.A.·Feb 11, 2021


Linda listened to the experiences I shared with her and worked with me to come up with ways to overcome my struggles. She also provided me with resources to read on my own time which I really appreciated as it helped me gain better insight to her treatment modality. She was comforting and warm and I really enjoyed talking to her!

A.B.·Jan 29, 2021


So far Linda does a good job listening to what I have to say and giving effective feedback with the worksheets and during the calls. The exercises are helpful and she cares about what you have to say.

K.A.·Dec 06, 2020


Linda is amazing. She’s helped me deal with a lot.

K.E.·Nov 01, 2020


This was my first experience with counseling and Linda was terrific.

A.L.·Oct 09, 2020


Linda has been a wonderful counselor. She is compassionate in her work and is extremely helpful. She provides a nonjudgmental environment for her patients. I would highly recommend her!

J.E.·Sep 17, 2020


I was completely new to counseling and Linda made it such a warm and inviting process. The things we worked on were tangible and she is just a overall joy to work with! I can’t recommend her enough.

A.N.·Sep 11, 2020


Linda has a very gentle approach to her counseling style, very in tune to tech resources available (spotify) for free, and is just overall a very warm presence. It can be hard to convey that over video, but she definitely does :)

A.B.·Jul 27, 2020


Linda is a wonderful counselor, and even after only 2 sessions I feel very listened to and understood. As a queer person, it is refreshing to feel so respected and free to be myself in a situation where being yourself is key. My favorite thing about Linda is that she gets to the heart of problems instead of just treating symptoms. She also balances her advice and counseling with tools to use on your own, so that you are never left empty handed after a session. Linda is down-to-earth, and knows how to bring a splash of levity when it is both necessary and appropriate.
