What our therapists say

Helpful, patient and professional

It is my pleasure to work with Mr. Chaz Stevens, Founder and CEO of ESADoggy. Mr. Stevens has been helpful, patient and professional throughout the many interactions I have had from onboarding to training to day-to-day work life. My clients always speak highly of their contact with him, and I am very happy to be a part of this organization. Mr. Stevens is always available to therapists, and the compensation plan is fair and comprehensive. I look forward to continuing to work and grow with this company.

Thank you,
MS, LMHC

You will love your work with ESADoggy

I am one of Chaz’s early clinicians and I have watched ESADoggy grow from nearly the beginning. I want to share my experience so that you, as a new clinician, can benefit from my perspective.

Working with ESADoggy is unlike any other experience you will have. Like a Charles Dickens novel, it is the best and the worst of times. The best part is helping people who legitimately need the help of an emotional support animal to improve their lives. The ‘worst’ part is the inconsistent nature of the work; don’t expect regular full time work. Once you get into the flow of the work, you get to focus on the best part and it becomes very rewarding and fulfilling.

Chaz is your best and number one support. He is very vested in doing things the right way as opposed to the easy way. Unbeknownst to most of the clinicians, Chaz is constantly looking for ways to improve services and ensure ethical compliance. You won’t find that at other ESA companies!

The actual work is as streamlined as possible. Chaz has designed it so that we can focus on providing services to clients instead of ‘busy work.’ He has automated portions of the system and has streamlined processes so that we can do what we do best….mental health care. Chaz is happy to defer to the mental health professionals so that the processes and systems are in sync with best practices and ethical guidelines.

Chaz in an internet marketing genius, and his work on the back end is what generates referrals for the clinicians. Because this process is subject to human nature and the internet, referrals come in sporadically. Trust me, they do come in, but it will fluctuate. As the system works, there will be more consistent referrals. It takes time for the internet to work.

You will love your work with ESADoggy and will find satisfaction in the services you provide. Welcome to the team!

Beyond supportive of all contractors

Working with ESA doggy since 2017 has been a great experience. Chaz is beyond supportive of all contractors and willing to go the extra mile for clientele as well as engage in team work to ensure the highest quality of service. The reliability and work ethic of this company has allowed contractors to serve numerous clients in need all under one roof.

Notes

1. Letters issued by our contract therapists must include their contact information (business address, phone, email), which may present issues for individuals working from home. Unfortunately, given the nature (scam, fraud) of the online ESA business, we have found letters that do not contain this information raise unnecessary red flags.
