Yolanda Gonzalez

(LCSW)

About Me

Hello! My name is Yolanda Gonzalez. I'm a licensed clinical social worker, LCSW in the state of New Jersey. I am also certified in EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) aka Tapping - a stress and pain reduction technique. For over three years, I’ve worked with individuals and families, providing them with a safe and comfortable space where they can be heard and express their feelings freely.

I currently work as an in home therapist traveling all over northern New Jersey providing therapeutic services to families in crisis. I have the most experience working with depression, anxiety, PTSD, family/relationship conflicts, life transitions, and complex trauma/abuse. I also have experience helping individuals identify and release emotional and physical pain that they may not have even been aware of. Previously I worked as a School Social Worker, therefore I also have specialized knowledge of school systems.

I tailor my treatment style to fit your needs. I primarily use evidence based techniques including cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, emotional freedom technique, and solution-focused counseling.

My goal is to be present with you, listening deeply to the challenges you are facing, while providing you with empathy, knowledge,coping skills and strengthening tools.

I’d love to get to know you and assist you throughout your counseling journey. If you think I might be a good fit for you, please contact me!

I look forward to hearing from you,

Yolanda Gonzalez, LCSW

As a front line health care worker who was really struggling after working in a hot spot during the peak of the pandemic in my area, I knew I needed help. A good friend recommended better help. As a night shift worker whose schedule varies from week to week, the texting format Is a huge asset. I was skeptical of ‘being assigned’ a therapist, but Better help’s algorithm paired me with a perfect fit. Yolanda Gonzalez is wonderful! I wouldn’t be on track like I am without her guidance. She is professional, she is kind, she is patient and challenges me to break down my barriers and be more present. I highly highly recommend her and better
Help.
