PLEASE, NO CALLS OR LIVE WEBCHAT.
A minimum of five years of experience is required.
We are currently not accepting resumes for the following states:
- New York
Due to the amazing response, please allow up to two weeks for our response. Also, please read the job requirements in its entirety.
Unfortunately, if you are an intern or if you require supervision to provide counseling services, you cannot be a provider with us at this time. Also, we are unable to accept occupational therapists, substance abuse counselors, school counselors, registered nurses, career counselors, Christian counselors and business coaches (unless they have an additional license as a therapist).
ESAD is actively seeking Master's Level+ Licensed Mental Health Professionals to provide telemedicine-based emotional support animal assessments and sessions for clients in your local region. This is an excellent opportunity, with great upside potential, for individuals looking to augment their income and expand their client base. We are a start-up endeavor, and this is not a full-time position.
We're hiring on a local/regional area in the US, Canada, and England (soon to be the UK).
Your licensure must match your business address. Having multiple states licenses is irrelevant.
If you live/work in NY, but have a FL license, we appreciate your situation, but we won't be making use of your FL license. We understand there's nothing improper/etc. with having two+ licenses. However, in the post-peacock-airline era, writing letters for Florida clients while practicing in Yonkers raises too many red flags for us.
- Determine nature of clients' functional impairments by reviewing client-provided biopsychosocial and thru telemedicine consultations.
- When qualified, provide emotional support animal letters of recommendations (we will supply you with proper documentation)
- Currently optional, though likely to become mandatory, clients can purchase additional therapeutic sessions. Our near-term business model is firmly leaning in this direction.
Salary (Part-time, flex hours, PRN)
Up to $65/hr
We’re in startup mode, expanding our marketing efforts from a statewide basis to city/county-wide focus. So likely, in the beginning, referrals will start slow and increase as we build awareness.
