Trichotillomania - Psychologists?

Hi everyone,

My 12 yo daughter started pulling her eyebrows and eyelashes out last year. They are now essentially completely gone. It seems to be something that runs in my family (we're all pickers to varying levels; my sister has no eyebrows or eyelashes due to trich; so i have some knowledge of how "tricky" this devastating condition can be). My daughter was also diagnosed with Autism late last year and sees a psychologist for general support with that. However i am struggling to find a psychologist in Adelaide that has ANY experience with Trich. Does anyone know of a good psychologist either in SA or interstate for video conference appointments, with experience with Trich? Many thanks

Hey @Nae1 what a difficult situation and condition to be dealing with, and so young.

 

I don't have much experience or advice either sorry, however I though it might be worth asking over on the Family and Careers side of the forum to see if anyone over there has any experience or recommendations for you.

 

All the best 🙏
