Search for reviews in Angie's List (Search Now button at left, Health category, psychologist, psychiatrist, pediatrics and counselor subcategories)

I would look to getting referrals from the following:

1) your primary care physician

2) school nurse / psychologist

3) your pastor / priest, particularly if you want a practioner in a certain religion

4) county health department

5) psychological treatment department at your local hospital

6) friends, if you know of any who have gone through the same issue (though being creful about confidentiality issues, so it does not get back to child's friends)

If you are talking self-harm as in cutting or burning or such, you need a professional adolescent psychologist or psychiatrist, not a counselor.
