Seeking excellent couples therapist (albany/Berkeley)
I am seeking a smart, no nonsense therapist who can help my partner and I as we navigate the blending of our families. (We are not divorced and have 5 offspring total aged17-27 ) I don’t want someone who just listens and acknowledges our feelings. I would like someone to call each of us on our own baggage/ behavior and give us practical guidance. We recently spent several months with a lovely kind and smart therapist but ultimately we felt we needed someone less neutral and more challenging. My partner has a very strong personality and we need someone who is not intimidated by him. Lastly- We don’t relate well to too much touchy feely therapists. Just not our style. Any recommendations greatly appreciated!
