Califonia-based CertaPet has officially announced the company’s recent expansion of their teletherapy coverage. The platform is now serving residents in Texas, Ohio, and Oklahoma, helping them obtain easy access to Licensed Mental Health Professionals in their state. The company has focused their efforts on increasing access to care for those who currently reside in hard-to-reach rural areas as well as promoting pet therapy for residents who face emotional and mental disabilities.
“Statistics show that 1 in 4 adults and over 17 million children suffer from diagnosable mental and emotional illnesses. Unfortunately, less than 8 percent of the people who need it ever receive care for their condition,” said Julie Martinez of CertaPet. “It’s clear that the mental health care system in this country needs work, and we can’t continue to rely on medication as the answer. This is where having an Emotional Support Animal can help. Owning an ESA can provide much-needed physical and emotional companionship while reducing anxiety. With CertaPet’s recent expansion, we can now help even more people get access to this kind of therapy through the recommendation of a Licensed Mental Health Professional in their area.”
CertaPet.com provides a robust teletherapy platform needed to help connect those with mental and emotional disabilities to a Licensed Mental Health Professional who can assess their needs and give them access to the level of care they require. These professionals use a carefully-crafted screening and consultation process to help residents determine if an emotional support animal is right for them as well as help them obtain the legal documents necessary to register their pet as an ESA.

Martinez went on to say, “We see it as our mission to provide mental and emotional health care access to as many people as possible. With that idea in mind, our entire team is ecstatic about the opportunity that we have to serve the people of Texas, Ohio and Oklahoma and help them get what they need to reduce their anxiety and feel more secure. We know the difference that an emotional support animal can make in someone’s life, and we are proud to be expanding our efforts to help those who need these animals to better manage the symptoms of their condition.”
Residents in Texas, Ohio, and Oklahoma are encouraged to visit the CertaPet Facebook Page to learn more about ESA laws and to keep up with what’s going on with CertaPet.
