Where in Pennsylvania?
I can recommend someone. Please PM me.  He is actually my counselor as I wanted to find someone to hold my hand through this journey.  I think very highly of him.  He is gender-critical.

Now I just need to find a new counselor for my daughter as the one she picked for herself is just making everything worse.

Hello, did anyone find someone in PA? I’m specifically looking in south, central PA. Need therapist for my 18yr old son who decided a year and half ago he was trans. On autism spectrum and highly gift. No other factors or indicators….other than he lives by anything Discord tells him.

Hi, cirenes,

If you haven't already, try the GETA website. Go to this link and click on "Find therapists" at the top of the page. https://genderexploratory.com/

They don't have a huge list but are adding new names on a regular basis. 

Otherwise, I recommend posting your query in the members-only area, where it will be seen by more of our members. You'll also find tips for interviewing therapists and for finding your own therapist in the event that you don't get a recommendation.

Best wishes,
Marge

I'm mother to a 13 year old who thinks she's a boy. She came out to us last week. I found someone has given her a binder, and her drama club has socially transitioned her behind our backs.

She has other psychological issues, but has never had therapy. Looking for a therapist in San Francisco, but worried I won't find someone following evidence based practices.

If I could please get a recommendation for a therapist in Indiana (Ideally Indianapolis area) but I am willing to drive to IL or OH if needed. I can't lose my child like this!

Hi I am from Manchester New Hampshire. I am looking for a therapist for my daughter, who identifies as they them But likes to be called a boys name. She dresses as a girl and wears make up and jewelry, but would like to be called a boys name She has never been so confused with her identity. She has always identified as she her. This whole trend and social media plus friends have done an amount of damage to her. Can I please get a referral to someone who is in my area.

She wants us to use "they/them" and call her by the name Blake, which she thinks is gender neutral because of Blake Lively. She says that she wants to dress gender neutral, but everything she wears is masculine. Ironically, all through elementary school she would ONLY wear dresses and skirts. My daughter hasn't started talking about hormones, but she is binding her chest with an ace bandage. I am so worried that once she turns 18, I won't be able to stop her from taking drastic measures. 
Anyway, I know that most therapists automatically confirm that these girls are trans with no questions asked. I am looking for a therapist who might have a different viewpoint and explore this deeper with her. Can anyone recommend a therapist in the St. Louis area? I am getting desperate as this is bringing our relationship to a breaking point. I love her and don't want to lose her.

We are also in St. Louis. Did you find anyone? If so, please share. I will do the same.

We are in St Louis as well facing many of the same issues. Have you found a good therapist and if so could you please share info?

Hi all, we're looking for a therapist or any other kind of support for our 13 year old daughter who been identifying as a trans boy for the last few months and has been wanting to start puberty blockers and is also already wanting top surgery. She's never evidenced any kind of GD anytime prior to just a few months ago, so we'd like to explore the deeper layers of what might be happening.

We're in Boulder, CO - any recommendations for resources here in the local area?

Thank you!!
