Like others in this group, she showed absolutely no signs of any sort of gender dysphoria until a LOT of internet use (including watching porn in 6th grade right as she hit puberty, which my husband and I believe turned her away from the idea of any sort of heterosexual relationship). 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.

not yet but will share if I do. Thanks for doing the same!

She changed her name to a boy's name when she was 14 years old, and I didn't realize how serious the problem was back then. Now I'm so worried, and I'm looking for a therapist in Washington DC area (including Maryland and Virgina),  who can help me convince her to wait until later in her life to make such decisions.
I'm in the same boat. If you hear of a therapist, please let me know. I just dropped my "son" at college yesterday. She is still my daughter in my heart, but at 18 now (I was told she was a he, her sophomore year of high school) but she says shes looking for a bust reduction and hormones. I just want her to wait. I'm in NJ but she's in CT. If I find anyone in your area, I'll be sure to let you know.

Both of us highly educated professionals naturally turn to the "Experts", dive into our own research, reading every book we can get our hands on, visiting every website we can muster, reaching out to therapists for feedback...and the more we dig into this world, the more confused we become. Every bit of new information lends to contradict old information just learned. Every turn of a page or click of the mouse results in the nullification of previous pages. My wife often hears me exclaim "this is the worst movie script ever written", and thankfully she still finds some of my lighthearted humor use full - especially during these trying times. 

When did the world turn in on itself? When did political ideologies nullify facts and data? When did intelligent inquiry into the unknowns become toxic and off-limits? Unless we've all been transported back in time a thousand years when the church pulled this same routine - something has occurred....AND UNDER OUR WATCH!

My wife and I are simply seeking information to help our child. We don't care about politics. We don't care about groups placating to their ancient tribal tendencies. We don't care about the newest prevailing winds of the moment which spout about "affirmative care". 

WE CARE ABOUT our child...and all of your children. We CARE ABOUT finding the best help for them as we possibly can and helping them THRIVE in this life. What is so toxic about that? So then why is it so hard to find doctors/therapist who refuse to buy-in and succumb to the pressures of the mainstream hypocrisy of "affirmative care"? 

To all those who have gone before us and have waded through these troubled waters, would anyone be able to recommend, or point towards, any websites or organizations who can help my wife and I locate qualified therapists/doctors for our child?

Any suggestions, assistance, advice or counsel is truly welcomed.

Thanks for your post. I wholeheartedly agree.
