Seeking Recommendations for Female Therapist with openings
I need to find a new therapist and am having a very hard time finding someone taking new clients (have tried four so far who all have full practices). Prefer female, but open. "Issues" are long-standing depression and anxiety, complex family relationships, recent divorce, parenting challenges, and general middle age stuff. Looking for someone supportive and kind, who will also be honest and challenge me. Also looking for someone super professional who respects boundaries. Generally have preferred MFT or LCSW who take a practical approach, but open (particularly to somatic practices). Relatively close to Alameda would be great for when in-person visits are doable again, but flexible given everything is video right now. Paying out of pocket so insurance not an issue. At this point, biggest selling point would be someone with openings in their practice who is willing to even talk to a potential new client. Thanks BPN!
