Gender Affirming Care Q &A

What is gender affirming care?

Gender affirming care focuses on the treatment of patients whose gender identity differs from their sex assigned at birth. The board certified psychiatric nurse practitioners and psychotherapists at Owl & Eagle Health and Wellness provide friendly, understanding, and expert gender-affirming treatment, including psychiatric care, psychotherapy, hormone treatment, gender marker change letters, anti-discrimination letters, and referrals for gender-affirming surgeries. We provide caring support as you transition into your true self.

What are the benefits of gender affirming care?

Gender-affirming care can have positive effects in all areas of health and wellness. Owl & Eagle Health and Wellness providers understand that living in the wrong body and dealing with ignorance and discrimination is incredibly stressful. This stress can lead to mental health challenges. Our board certified psychiatric nurse practitioners and psychotherapists understand that having a mental health condition or psychiatric disorder is not a reason to deny gender-affirming care, and that receiving gender affirming care helps improve mental health and well-being.

What is your approach to gender affirming care?

Owl & Eagle Health and Wellness follows World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) guidelines and the informed consent model. The informed consent model respects your autonomy and self-determination, and assumes you are the expert on your own needs. We follow the informed consent model when providing psychiatric treatment and hormone therapy. Following WPATH guidelines is required for health insurance companies to cover gender affirming surgeries, and by most surgeons who perform gender affirming surgeries. Owl & Eagle Health and Wellness providers support patients as they navigate the sometimes complex and frustrating processes involved in obtaining gender affirming surgeries.
