Dr. Dawn Stacey is pleased to offer services to certify emotional support animals (ESAs). I understand the incredible benefits that ESAs can provide to individuals experiencing emotional or psychological difficulties.

Please note that these services are designed specifically for emotional support animal certification and are not related to service animals or therapy animals.

Chalk font sketch dot

There are a lot of scams surrounding ESA certification - such as claiming to need to register your pet. There is no national, state, or city level registry for ESAs.

Emotional support animals also do not need framed certificates, pet ID cards, ESA vests, and/or tags.

Certification is based on an ESA letter written specifically for you by a licensed mental health provider that verifies your need for an emotional support animal.

I am well-versed in the requirements and guidelines for ESA certification and can guide you through the process - ensuring that you understand the steps involved and assisting you in obtaining the necessary ESA letter. You can rest assured that you will receive the guidance and documentation necessary to legally and confidently benefit from the companionship and emotional support of your ESA.

Complies with HIPPA regulations

All information exchanged via email, text, phone, and in therapy is confidential and protected by law (when applicable). This includes the client's right to control the release of information, as well as the right to access certain types of information regarding their treatment.

The law protects the relationship between a client and a therapist, so information cannot be disclosed without written permission/consent.
