Emotional Support Animal Letters
As a licensed therapist based in Massachusetts, I am dedicated to supporting the mental and emotional well-being of all people. Recognizing the profound impact that animals can have on our health, I offer evaluations for Emotional Support Animal (ESA) letters. These letters affirm that your pet serves as a crucial component of your mental health treatment plan.
The journey to obtaining an ESA letter begins with an assessment to determine whether an ESA would be an appropriate part of your treatment. Understanding that each individual's circumstances are unique, I provide a personalized approach that respects your specific needs and concerns. Should an ESA be beneficial to your mental health, I will furnish you with a letter that includes all the requisite information mandated by Massachusetts law.
This ESA letter will enable you to navigate housing and travel arrangements with greater ease, ensuring that your support animal can accompany you in accordance with federal and state regulations. The document serves as a legal testament to the necessity of your animal's presence for your emotional and psychological health, granting you certain protections under the law.
It's important to note that ESAs are distinct from service animals and do not carry the same legal protections. However, with a valid ESA letter, landlords and travel services are generally required to make reasonable accommodations for your support animal.
I am committed to making this process as smooth and stress-free as possible. If you're a Massachusetts resident seeking an ESA letter, please reach out to schedule an evaluation. Together, we can take the next steps towards nurturing your mental health with the support of your cherished pet.
The fees for this service are $150 for comprehensive assessment & letter.
