finding reliable medical practitioners
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?
