Trichotillomania is not an easy thing to live with, both for the person it affects as well as their family members. I have spoken with many mothers (including one of my own family members) who has a young pre-teen or teenage daughter who is living with Trich. It is both frustrating and heartbreaking with no easy-fixes in sight.
I have said it before and I will say it again The Trichotillomania Learning Center http://www.trich.org/ is a FANTASTIC resource for anyone dealing with this issue. They provide information on the latest treatment options, educational books and dvds and where to find a support group in your area.
Here at William Collier Design we strive to create a safe and supportive environment where young women (or anyone living with Trich) can learn more about the solutions we offer & re-connect to their joyful, confident selves.
Just last week, one of our young clients (a 15year old girl) came in for her cut-in on her new, gorgeous, human hair wig. She cold not stop grinning and mother said to me “This is the first time I’ve seen her smile in months”.
That made my month! It is what everyone here at William Collier Design lives for!
If you, or someone you know is living with Trichotillomania – please call us for a complimentary consultation to learn more.
As always, I welcome your questions and comments.
