Emotional Support Animals (ESA) provide support to individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, or other mental health disorders to better cope with the symptoms of their disorder.
Certain aircrafts or non-pet housing require a letter from a licensed mental health professional to allow ones animal to accompany them. Otherwise charged a fee, an Emotional Support Letter (ESL) can waive such fees.*
For a one time flat rate of $100 we will have a 45 minute session where I can properly assess, evaluate, and diagnose the reason for your requested ESL.
Annual renewals are offered for a discounted fee upon expiration.
Upon completion of our session, I’ll provide you with your letter within 24 hours if deemed necessary.
You do not need to be a current client of mine to inquire about this service.
*The Air Carrier Access Act 49 U.S.C. 41705, Dept. of Transportation 14 C.F.R. Part 382, Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988 are the laws that protect an emotionally disabled person and his/her ESA.
*Please note emotional support animals are NOT the same as service animals. This ESL service is for cats and dogs only and for flights and residential housing only. NOT for hotel stays, restaurants, grocery stores etc. To learn more about this and your rights, click here.
