Counselor/Therapist for Teen with chronic health condition

Hi Neighbors,

We're looking for a therapist to work with our bright, creative, 15 year old who is having a difficult time with the typical teen issues and her physical health. We are looking for a counselor who is open to listening and providing support to a teen with a chronic health condition and the limitations it places on day to day teen life and relationships with family and friends. We look forward to your suggestions.

You might try Korie Leigh. Here is her website and contact information: In addition to being a therapist, Korie is also a certified child life specialists with extensive experience working in medical settings and with families who have faced hospitalization and chronic illness. She is warm, kind and very easy to speak to. If you have any questions, let me know. Take care.

You may want to contact Rachel Zoffness, 510-852-9772, She specializes in working with teens with chronic pain and illness. Best wishes.

I would recommend Dr. Patricia Zurita Ona.  She's in Walnut Creek at the East Bay Behavior Therapy Center. 925-956-4636.

I think Lisa Lancaster in Berkeley would be an ideal fit.
