finding reliable medical practitioners
(23-Jun-2021, 08:22 PM)MomToTroubledTeen Wrote: Hello Rachel's Mom, I can't help with your primary ask: for a gender critical therapist in Denver, CO, but I can tell you that if my child were still a minor I would take very direct action to change her world. That means: choke the internet. Block sites like Youtube, tumblr, tic toc, discord, and all the others. Get her off of social media. Shut off all devices except for during very limited hours for school or other necessary work. Do not compromise on this. If you have a religious practice, look to spiritual advisors and mentors for your daughter. Look to outdoors programs that engage her in strenuous physical activity. If merited, do diagnostic testing to see if there are other physical or mental problems: personality disorder, neurological disorder, chronic stress (there's a blood test for this), history of trauma that merits trauma treatment, or other conditions. What I'm saying is: there is a LOT you can do without a therapist. If you get a therapist who believes strongly in "affirmative care" then your daughter will be encouraged in her delusional preoccupations. So, no therapist is better than a bad therapist.

Great post, MomToTroubledTeen. Well put.
