1. Initial assessment and ongoing therapy sessions.
2. Comprehensive evaluation of your need for an ESA.
3. Discussion of potential benefits and risks associated with having an ESA.

The cost for an ESA letter is $100. Additional fees may apply if further information is requested by your landlord or the requesting entity. These fees cover the time and resources required to provide detailed documentation and communication.

Due to the potential risks and unanticipated outcomes, the HAIC strongly suggests that counselors abstain from writing letters for individuals seeking counseling or assessment solely for the purpose of obtaining an ESA recommendation letter. We adhere to this guideline to ensure ethical and responsible practice.

By following these guidelines, we aim to provide responsible and ethical support to our clients while ensuring their well-being and the integrity of our practice.
