Recommendation For Therapists For PD Caregiver Spouses In The Bay Area Ca

My mother in law is taking care of her husband with PD. She has become depressed and traumatized by his risk of injury (falling) and had become angry with him. Is there a therapist in the north bay (near San Francisco) who specializes in caregiving (or PD caregiving) that she could see?
