Hey Group Practice listeners! In this episode, I talk with Rebecca Stone all about emotional support animals.

Here’s what we’ll discuss:

  • How are emotional support animals different than service animals?
  • How are emotional support animals different than therapy animals?
  • Are there specific trainings/assessments clinicians should be using before writing an ESA letter?
  • What are recommended training courses?

This episode is sponsored by TherapyNotes. TherapyNotes is an EHR software that helps behavioral health professionals manage their practice with confidence and efficiency. I use TherapyNotes in my own group practice and love its amazing support team, billing features, and scheduling capabilities. It serves us well as a large group practice owner.

The show

The podcast is structured so that you get practice building tips in small doses, where an episode can be listened to (and a group practice building lesson can be learned) in a single car ride.

Episodes are structured into categories: coaching sessions where I coach a group practice owner on a specific topic, tips of the day by yours truly, real talk where you get to be a fly on the wall while an established group practice owner and I talk about the highs and lows of ownership, and trainings done by experts in the field.
