Need therapist for gifted 13 year old boy with depression and anx

Trying to find the right therapist for my 13 year old gifted 2E kid. He's suddenly gone from optimistic, to depressed, although I suspect the anxiety has been around for a while.

He would prefer a male therapist who can work intensively on these issues. I think CBT would helpful, He's started putting on the front he believes everyone wants from him, and so straight talk therapist is unlikely to help.
