Assessment & Session (Travel – Includes Letter, Signed Airline Form, & Psychotherapy Session – US)SKU: ES-0034
This service includes a comprehensive mental health intake with a local, licensed mental health care professional, and an ESA travel letters (and airline forms) for those that qualify.
ESA Travel Letter
Thanks to the emotional support peacock, squirrel, and snake, traveling by air with your emotional support animal has become more time-consuming and more expensive. US airlines now require mental health care providers to certify the passenger is currently undergoing professional care for ongoing treatment regarding a mental health-related disability.
Most airlines follow American Airlines‘ ESA documentation validation which includes “contacting your mental health professional.” Given our total compliance with federal HIPAA data privacy guidelines, unless a passenger/client purchases the additional airline verification service, our clinicians cannot legally answer any airline queries.
