finding reliable medical practitioners
(09-Jun-2022, 03:54 PM)lrebaglia Wrote: My 13 year old daughter began expressing gender dysphoria at 11, just before her father passed away. She was already suffering with depression and anxiety and under the care of a psychiatrist and a pediatric therapist. She had never expressed a discomfort in her body at all to me prior to this, and it was never a topic discussed in therapy or psychiatric check in appointments. My child has a history of obsessive trend behavior, and so that is what I am thinking this is.  I have gone through 3 therapists, and a family therapist and everyone seems hell bent on affirmative care.  I have allowed my child to dress in a manner that makes them comfortable and we use a different name, but she needs someone to help her understand WHY she is having these feelings.  I have already had multiple doctors and psych try to get me setup with hormones and P blockers, and it is insane. So I need to find a psychiatrist and therapist in or near Gastonia, NC.  Suggestions needed!

Hello, Irebaglia, and welcome to the forum. Your account has been activated.

The immediate push for blockers and hormones is insane, isn't it? 

Now that your membership has been activated, I encourage you to post your question in the membrs-only area, since members don't frequent this public area too often. Nonaffimring clinicians can be difficult to find, but hopefully a fellow parent on the board will have someone to recommend. 

If you end up having to find clinicians on your own, there is advice for going about this in some of the members-only threads, and also there is some helpful guidance here: https://genderexploratory.com/browse/

I'm sorry you are dealing with this, but glad you found the board. I hope you find it helpful.

Best wishes.
