I am having to get my 11 year old daughter to be referred to

This answer was rated:

I am having to get my 11 year old daughter to be referred to a child psychologist because my daughter's behavior is getting worse. She has been diagnoised with Depression and Anxiety Disorder. She has been seeing a counselor at a local mental health facility; however, there is a great turnover there and my daughter had to see 3 different counselors in less than 6 months. I need to locate another child psychologist so when I ask her physician, I can tell him a name. Is there anyway, there is a website that you know of where I can get a list of names and read about their practice?
Thanks for your question, and I'm sorry to hear about what you've been going through with your daughter. In my experience one of the best websites to locate a child psychologist and learn a bit about themselves and their practice is:

Another good resource is http://www.healthgrades.com/ which will also help you to find a child psychologist in your area, and sometimes clients have left reviews that can help you to make more of an informed decision.

If you have any trouble using these websites or locating someone near you please let me know and I'll make sure to help you out.

What is a clinical psychologist? That is all that is around the area?

A clinical psychologist is a regular psychologist who may or may not work with children. If you want to send me your zip code I can try to help you find a child psychologist in your area.
