Owen Karcher has worked with 50+ transgender clients in over 5 years. About his practice, Karcher says, "I am a transgender therapist and the vast majority of my clients are transgender. I speak Spanish and offer therapy in Spanish and have written letters in support of halting deportation proceedings or for clients seeking UVISAS after experiencing various types of violence." Karcher writes letters of referral for trans clients seeking hormone therapy, gender-affirming surgery, and updating identity documents. He uses the informed consent model, but also writes letters that meet the WPATH standards to assist trans clients in accessing healthcare. He also uses a social justice model that incorporates the exploration and understanding of oppression and marginalization.
