finding reliable medical practitioners

Hello! My teen is 17, identifies as transgender, and suffers from anxiety and gender dysphoria.  I am currently looking for a therapist who could work on coping mechanisms for gender dysphoria and anxiety. I am also looking for a psychiatrist who could prescribe medication. Do you still have referrals either for someone in the Denver area or for someone who is willing to work with patients online through video appointments? Thanks!

My teen has a set of other issues as well, particularly anxiety attacks and depression. I would like to find a psychiatrist in the Denver metro area who could work with these other issues and consider whether to recommend antidepressants. A psychologist or analyst who would be committed to discussing possible non-medical ways of dealing with the dysphoria, depression, and anxiety would also be helpful. I am very concerned about what I have heard about hormones and surgeries being recommended to teens, and would like to avoid health care practitioners who would steer my teen in that direction. Does anybody know of reliable psychiatrists or other health care practitioners in the Denver metro area? On a broader note, what experiences have you all had with helping a trans identified teen with anxiety, depression, and gender dysphoria, and have you found medical practitioners who were committed to examining other avenues than referrals to clinics for hormones and surgeries?  
Tamara,
I am also looking for providers in the Denver area. My 16 year old daughter, who suffers from anxiety and depression, also just told us she is trans.  I am happy to share my research with you. Have you had any luck finding help?

I am also looking for providers in the Denver area.  I am happy to share my research with others in Denver looking for therapists as well.

My 16 year old daughter just told us she is trans, she also suffers from depression, anxiety and is completely addicted to the internet.  I feel like she is a very classic case of ROGD and I am very nervous about finding the right support for her. 

I am also interested in learning more about attachment parenting.  I feel like she turned to the internet in 2015 when my husband and I were going through a very rough time in our marriage, I feel like she drifted away when we were guilty of being emotionally unavailable during a very pivotal time in her life. We need guidance in trying to reconnect with her.

I have a 17-year old who suffers from gender dysphoria and anxiety. I am looking for therapist that my teen could talk to as well as a psychiatrist who could prescribe medications for anxiety. We live in the Denver area, but online appointments are also increasingly a possibility given how many therapists now work online due to the pandemic. Any recommendations would be much appreciated!
