Hi - I’m in Nor cal/Silicon Valley. Our current tx is great (Laura Machado, PsyD, in Campbell) but she’s going to be taking a few months off in Jan so may not be accepting new clients. You might also check with Healthy Teen Project and the Community Health Collaborative (their outpatient branch)  https://www.commhc.org

Thank you for the suggestions!
