In this episode, Nina and Corinna interview Stephanie Winn, who is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, advocate for victims of gender medicine, and podcaster. 

There's a fair bit of information mentioned on ways to find responsible mental health professional - particularly for detransitioners. But also, lots of useful information on how to get support for your rights as a consumer of mental health services which is available through state regulators, etc.

And, if nothing else, Ms. Winn provides some valuable advice on how to question a therapist . . . 

Worth catching, and it might be useful.

Hello,
As previous members I am looking for therapist for my child who doesn’t accept her body plus we struggle with anxiety. I live in Wa State. Any recommendations?

Hello, I am looking for a therapist in the Reno, NV area for my 18 year old daughter

For the last year (her senior year) she has been dressing more boyish, I didn't think much about it as it was similar to her friends. A couple of weeks ago she told me that she really hated her breasts and was feeling like she should be a man. I was shocked to say the least as there had never been any signs. As a child she was mostly a normal girl, she wasn't girly but she didn't favor a boy either. She was very artsy and placed with craft and art things, not really toys so there isn't really a way I would have noticed anything there. She always preferred dresses, not frilly ones just skirts and dresses. We found that she had some auditory and tactile sensory issues and was diagnosed with SPD as well as anxiety and ocd (obsessive hand washer). She hated getting her hands dirty. Through puberty there was never an issue with regards to starting her period or breast development. She never had large breasts and still doesn't. She want's to be done with her period (what girl doesn't??) and get rid of her chest. She did not ask me to change pronouns or call her a different name. I asked if she came up with a different name and she told me that she hadn't decided between 2 of them but didn't tell me what they were. With her new job she did put pronouns if He/him and a new name on her name tag as well as at the Dr when she went in.

I believe that it may be RODG an part of what contributed to her dysphoria was friends. I'm not saying that it is the only reason since I don't really know but within the last year her entire friend group all came out as something within the LGBTQ area. Maybe they became friends because of like minds or maybe they just decided they wanted to be something else. She is in a very small school with a super high % of kids that identify LGBTQ in the last few years (about 30% mostly girls).

I have been supportive but not over the top "Yay, let's get going and you transitioned!". I am less than thrilled about the issue but if it is truly a problem then we will deal with it. She doesn't appear to be depressed or have suicide ideation (as well the questionnaire they do at the Dr showed mild depression) But I am being as supportive as possible . As she is considered an adult, I told her she is responsible for all her medical stuff now, appointments and therapy that she has referrals on. I don't plan to lead her through this, she is legally and adult and in my opinion its an adult decision. She is not a fan of medical procedures or anything medical so I am hoping that will help slow things down so she can think.

Any suggestions would be wonderful.

Kathy

Hi, my name is Kathy and I am in the reno area. I am looking for someone who is familiar with RODG and not someone who will push her right through to therapy. My daughter just told us she thinks she is trans and I noticed this last year (senior year) that she is started dressing more in mens clothes. I also see that her entire friend circle has come out as LGBTQIA+ (not all trans but others in the community. My concern is that she had never shown an incline of this and has always been relatively happy. She does have sensory processing disorder, anxiety and mild depression but is not suicidal and never has been. We used to talk about everything and anything, she told me things I would never have told my mom! She had never had a boy or girl friend, never kissed or held hands with anyone. This year she has pulled away though. She is already talking hormones so she went to see her GP, unfortunately she referred her to and endo and gender therapist. Does anyone live in this area and have suggestions?

- thanks for any help! Kathy

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.

Could you please PM me the therapist that you know of for Pennsylvania.

Thank you

I am looking for a therapist in the North Metro Atlanta, Ga area for my son who has identified as trans. We have thought for a long time he has ASD (Adult Spectrum Disorder) Please PM me any recommendations and I have activated my account so I think I can join the members only area, please advise if I am not in the correct area.

Our son is gay and came out to us about a year ago. He is turning 17 soon. We expressed our love and support for him and promised him that we will always love him even though we have religious convictions about the lifestyle. Our relationship with our son is the most important thing, and we want show him love no matter what.

Recently, his circle of friends are almost exclusive transgender. Whenever he talks about his freinds, we hardly know who they are anymore, because they have new names which makes parenting somewhat difficult. Some have identified as trans since we've known them and others have come out.

We have concerns about this rapid onset of changing gender identities, but work hard to remain respectful. I found this forum when scouring for resources. Some of his teen friends (we believe) are receiving hormonal treatments, puberty blockers, etc. This is not something that we readily support, but those are not our children.

Recently, our son asked to visit a therapist. Whether it's anxiety, depression, etc... We want to help him, but we're concerned an underlying motive is seeking a therapist who quickly supports and affirms self diagnosis of gender issues. He specifically asked for a therapist not affiliated with a (our) church.

But we do want to offer him help that he might need. Any recommendations for therapists in the Kansas City area?
