Welcome to BetterHelp! My name is Anique Gonzalez and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas. I have earned my Master's degree in Counseling from Texas A&M University, a CACREP university. My experience has been working with mental health disorders, specifically Major Depressive Disorder, Bipolar Disorder and Schizophrenia. I also have experience working with individuals struggling with emotional distress, stress, anxiety, trauma/abuse and relationship issues. I have been fortunate to work in outpatient, inpatient and private settings. Counseling is my passion and I wholeheartedly believe in the benefits of the therapeutic process when work is put in.
I implement a person-centered, cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused and holistic approach to the therapeutic process. The therapeutic process is most effective when treatment and approaches are tailored to the client. Implementing person centered therapy with my clients is used to identify their struggles, goals for the therapeutic process and began working at a stage and pace that is best suited for them. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an evidenced based technique which helps implement change in our thought processes, feelings and behaviors. I believe in people, their resiliency, and their ability to change their situation and habits. I believe in everyone’s ability to recover and evolve from difficult life situations when provided with support. As humans, life experiences can be traumatic, significantly stressful, and impact our ability to navigate the waters at times. My passion is to aid people in their road to recovery and the pursuit of healthier outcomes for themselves and those they love. Counseling is not a one size fits all. It is vital to tailor counseling services to the needs of my client and offer them a safe, non-judgmental space to work through their struggles and find healing. I am a counselor that believes the therapeutic process takes time in order to see changes in problem areas. Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip toe if you must, but take the step! The journey does not have to be taken alone and I look forward to working with you!

Anique is so helpful and understanding of what I need out of our sessions. She very patient even when I dont want to talk, she doesn't try to force me out of my shell. I'm so lucky to have her on my team.
Anique is such a patient, not judgmental, caring therapist! She have me practical steps in how to approach CBT that I could apply to manage my anxiety, as well as explored some of the baggage I was handling in real time. She is knowledgeable, kind, and extremely helpful in providing help with anxiety. A Godsend!
Anique is amazing. I love our video sessions. She does really well at validating my feelings and offering realistic coping mechanisms and suggestions that I can use everyday. She gives me time to express myself and explore my feelings.
She is so supportive and understanding. It feels very comfortable to open up to her.
Anique is great a providing different ways to see a problem and see a solution. I've learned something helpful and eye-opening in every one of my sessions.
Anique is probably my favorite person in my life right now. She has helped me heal things that i didn’t even know were broken. I don’t know where I would be today without therapy and without Anique.
I definitely recommend Anique. I did therapy with her for a few months last year and she really helped. I was able to find the strength to leave an abusive relationship because of her. She helped through the process of some other issues. I'm back in therapy and hope to continue my healing with her help that I'm so grateful for.
When I initially started Better Help I was paired with Anique, I wasn’t ready for services so I left. When I was ready, I requested her after being paired with someone with limited communication.. Not knowing anything but her profile. It has been a handful of months now and she has helped me process SO MUCH. I have really improved on my thought process while understanding and creating boundaries. I cannot tell you enough how beneficial therapy with Anique has been for me.
Anique has been incredibly helpful for me. She listens to me, checks in, and presents new perspective to my thinking. I am so grateful to have her help.
Anique is incredible at her job and I would recommend her to anyone. She is relatable, empathetic, and professional. I’ve never felt care or experienced growth at this level with a mental health professional before.
Anique has helped me in ways I could never have done on my own! She's made me feel like I am the one in power and not anxiety. I feel comfortable and safe when I speak with her and I trust and follow what she says because the advice really has improved my state of mind.
Anique has been such a delight to talk to! Definitely a great listen and offers her expertise to better your overall well-being/mental health. Anique is kind and extremely respectful: she really creates a safe space for any concerns.
She lets me talk to her about anything that’s on my mind or what’s bothering me! I do t have to stick to just one topic
Anique is great! She has been so helpful and kind. She really listens to you! She checks in when she has not heard from you in a while. I would highly recommend her!
I haven't been counseling with Anique for very long but so far I can tell you I am very happy. She responds to my questions and is always very willing to help. I look forward to working with her more.
She is helpful engaging and has a special energy about her that makes you feel safe to share freely
Antique is an amazing therapist. She is helping me out a lot during a very hard time. I enjoy the homework she gives me, and she has helped me do a lot better with my thinking patterns.
She has been extremely helpful and just simply amazing. I had never done counseling before but talking to Anique has been so easily. She made me feel comfortable enough that I felt like I was talking to a friend. She really listens to what I had say and was very understanding.
