At RJimenez Counseling, we follow a comprehensive ESA assessment model that includes four key components: 1. We recognize and apply the laws that regulate ESAs. 2. We conduct thorough disability and mental health assessments of the person requesting the ESA certification. 3. We discuss the animal and the client's responsibilities. We also review the therapeutic benefits of having the animal. 4. We'll review the client's health history and other relevant medical records, including the medication list. We assess the client-animal interaction and the specific disability-related function the animal serves. The above model aligns with the standards of psychological assessment and legal requirements. The assessment process usually takes approximately 3-4 sessions and may take longer if treatment records are unavailable or further assessment is needed. Pet Therapy & Psychoeducational Services At Rjimenez Counseling, we offer Pet Therapy (PT) and Pet Therapy Education (PTE). Our program evaluates and treats patients using animals as a vital part of the treatment process. Pet therapy aims to enhance human physical, social, emotional, and cognitive functions. The PT and PTE may be provided in different settings, individually or in groups, in-person, or via telehealth.
