My name is Sasha Ayad and I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor. I work primarily with teens who are experiencing gender confusion or Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria. Rather than rushing to affirm trans identities and medicalize a teen's trans declaration, I aim for a process of discovery, curiosity, and deeper understanding. 

I've worked with hundreds of families and through my direct experience with trans-identified teens, I've come to see many young people desist and re-adopt their birth sex identity once they've resolved underlying issues. Parents can play a crucial role in making space and constructing safe boundaries within which their teen can work through her gender issues.  

This page will be dedicated to sharing what I've learned and providing parents advice on how to support adolescents through this confusing gender journey.  

How to get the most from this Patreon account: 
- I recommend all parents start with the Boundaries video first. It includes some timeline-sensitive interventions that can save your teen a lot of time, energy, and distress. 
- Next, go down to the bottom of the page and check out the other videos in chronological order, with the oldest first.
