Boundaries included in Spatial Join

Hello! I'm trying to perform a spatial join (one to many). for the "places" city shapefile and the US counties shapefile. I want to see all of the counties the places shapefiles overlap, but because some of the places share a boundary with the counties, it includes those counties as well (something I'm trying to avoid). How do I omit those counties that only share a border with a place shapefile? I considered converting polygons to points, but then I wouldn't get all of the counties if some place shapefiles overlap. Does this make sense? Thank you!
