Seeking expert counseling is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.
I know how difficult this is for your daughter and for you.
There are places and people who can help you.
Please tell me where you live (city and state to which you would be willing to travel if needed), and I shall continue to help you.
I shall keep the chat open so that you can resume later when we are both online at the same time, or if not, if you leave the information I can still get you answers.

I will give you two sources of information: The first is a list of therapists and clinics in and around Redding that deal with various developmental disorders for children and may offer an alternative to the therapy she is currently receiving.
The second is a few therapists who might be ideal to help her.

And some therapists:
Now for a therapist. The first I would call is Mr. Michael Kuiper. I like his approach and he may be the one to help your daughter.
I am also impressed with Caty Cundy and your daughter might prefer a woman:
My final recommendation is Ms. Bobbie Gray who also seems excellent and appropriate.
I hope that this helps and believe that any of those three therapists would be very beneficial for you daughter.
I shall keep her and your family in my prayers.
