I have a 19 years old daughter who declared she is a trans out of the blue after her two friends become transitioning.

I am looking for someone who doesn't use 'gender affirmative' approach, preferably from phsycodynamic school. I currently live in Oregon (Portland metro area). Thank you! This web-site is a huge support for me knowing I am not alone.

Hello, helena, and welcome.

I'm sorry to hear about your daughter but it is great news she's willing to try therapy. I invite you to post your request in the members-only area, as this public area of the forum doesn't get much traffic from our members. You'll have a better chance of getting responses if you post in the members-only area.

Welcome to the forum. You are not alone.
Thanks so much for your support! I am very scared and feel helpless at the moment, but it's very reassuring there people like me out there.

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.
