I would refer her to Stella O'Malley - or check with her.  She's excellent and has a concern for autistic girls.  bayswatersupport.org.uk/

Hello, ABhopeful, and welcome. I'm sorry to hear about your daughter's troubles but glad to hear she is improving. Because forum members don't visit this public portion of the board very often, I invite you to join this forum as a member, so you will have access to the members-only area. In the members-only area, you'll find support and information from parents who are in similar situations. 

Post back if you have any questions about joining or need help joining.

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.
hi there, i don't know if you still look at these posts.. but how did your situation work out? my daughter is 14 and our story is unfolding similarily to yours... how is your daughter now?

I have a 14 yo daughter who is witty, smart, beautiful and has always suffered from FOMO (fear of missing out). We live in Ontario Canada (near Toronto) and have been in pandemic lockdown since March 2020. Our family has gone through drastic changes since 2016 (divorce, two house moves, job loss (dad), girlfriends, job changes, and ... puberty!). Summer 2020 she comes out as bi-sexual. Fall 2020 ... she starts insisting that she cuts her hair shorter and shorter. Winter 2020/2021 she comes out as trans. This is happening all so fast. She is the kid who fights for the underdog and would be burning her bra if we were in 1960. She is (IMO) not trans but rather... lonely, wanting, needing... feeling lost and disconnected. She is acting as though she is in a cult and drinking the kool aid by the gallon. She wants desperately to be the 'cool' kid... the outrageous one... the brave one... the one that is a bit different and gets the attention she desires. But is looking for affirmation in all the wrong places. Is there any other parent in the Toronto area that has or is dealing with this? While I don't believe she is trans and I'm pretty sure she doesn't believe she is trans... she would rather save face and do something crazy (b/c she's 14) than admit she might not be. At this point I feel like we are in a game of chicken or go and it's about saving face. Has anyone else experienced this as well? My end goal.. to keep her safe, healthy and her options OPEN!

Try contacting Dr. Marcus Evans in Beckenham, Bromley.  He's at Evans Psychotherapy.  He recently gave a interview on Triggernometry which was outstanding.  I would encourage you to watch it on youtube.  The interview was given in January of this year.  He is definitely non-affirming and believes this behaviour is caused by a number of underlying issues.  If he is not accepting new patients he may well be able to refer you to another provider.  Best of luck.  I know this is a very difficult road to travel.

He is seeing a gender affirming therapist and just getting worse. Would anyone have a recommendation for a therapist in the Boston Massachusetts area? Thank you.
I am also looking for a reliable therapist in the Boston area who could help. It is more difficult as my son just turned 25. He has been seeing an affirmation therapist since July and just told me he is trans on Jan 1. I am concerned she is not even asking about his other possible mental health conditions and he has always struggled with his emotions and sharing how he feels, that I doubt he could express anything to her. Please if you find someone let me know.

Here is a video from Partners for Ethical Care discussing the challenges in finding a therapist for your child who will not immediately affirm them, and strategies to help increase your chances of finding one.
