Seeking low-key therapist /counselor for young teen
We are seeking a low-key therapist for our young teen daughter. There is nothing wrong, per se, but she has an older sister with bipolar disorder who causes a lot of stress in the family and we thought it would be beneficial for the younger one to have someone to talk with about her feelings who is from outside the family. We are seeking someone who will give her an outlet, maybe advice about what to so when her sister acts out, etc.. We want to make sure she does not feel like she "needs help" because something is "wrong" with her, or how she moves through life, but, rather we want her to see that this is just an additional support resource. We desire a counselor who will support that vision of the therapy process. We prefer someone from Lamorinda, but thanks to the fourth bore, could go to Berkeley or Oakland.
Please send recommendations. Thank you.
