ESAD is actively seeking Master's Level+ Independent Practice Level Licensed Mental Health Professionals to provide Toronto, Canada-based adult assessments for emotional animal support letters of recommendation.

Our telemedicine-based client referrals will be strictly located within your region. We will not refer clients to out-of-state therapists.

NOTE: Unfortunately, if you are an intern or require supervision to provide counseling services, you cannot be a provider with us. Also, we are unable to accept substance abuse counselors, occupational therapists, school counselors, registered nurses, career counselors, Christian counselors and business coaches (unless they have an additional license as a therapist).
