Pragmatic therapist for pessimistic, isolated young adult?
I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a therapist that fulfills the following criteria: -- Located in Albany, Kensington, El Cerrito, Berkeley, or possibly Rockridge or Piedmont. -- Offering in-person sessions. -- Experienced in helping intelligent, non-substance-abusing, joyless young adults find purpose, a little optimism, and the best way forward in life. -- Not too "alternative" or emotionally touchy-feeling in approach; my child is a cynic. -- Helpful with severe social anxiety but willing to take things slowly (not just pure, efficient cognitive behavioral therapy). My 20-year-old was socially anxious and withdrawn before the pandemic, got worse during quarantine, and now could really use a jump-start toward future happiness. I'm thinking maybe something in between therapy and life-coaching -- but maybe that's just what therapy is? All suggestions appreciated!
