Right now, our turnaround to be contacted by a therapist to schedule a phone session is around 2 business days. If approved, you will be able to download a digital copy of your letter right away via email. We will also send a hard copy via USPS Mail. The shipping time usually takes 2-3 business days.
Our LMHPs consist of Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, Licensed Clinical Social Workers, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselors, and Licensed Mental Health Counselors.
All of our Licensed Mental Health Professionals are fully qualified and have passed board exams. The LMHP we select will be one that is legally qualified to approve ESA Letters for your state.
If you live in rented housing, then you should get the Housing Letter Consultation. This will allow your ESA to live with you even in housing where there’s a ‘no pets’ policy.
The ESA Letter is issued directly from a LMHP with their license number and their contact information included. The letter will come on the professional letterhead of the Licensed Mental Health Professional and contain everything legally required for an ESA prescription within the body of the letter.
Your ESA Letter will last for one year. You then have the opportunity to renew your ESA Letter via USA Service Dog Registration at a discounted rate. We will send you an email notification when it is time to renew with discounted offer.
Yes, to use an emotional support animal letter for university housing, select the ‘Campus Housing Letter’ option during your Assessment.
You will be able to download a digital copy of your letter right away via email. We will also send a hard copy upon via USPS Mail. The shipping time usually takes 2-3 business days. For landlords, we strongly recommend that you present the letter immediately in-person. Nearly all landlords are extremely accommodating.
Because HUD states that Emotional Support Animals require “reasonable accommodation,” your ESA Letter entitles you to live with your ESA even in housing where there’s a ‘no pets’ policy. You also cannot be charged a Pet Fee for your ESA.
