About me

My flat-fee is affordable ($78) and all inclusive for 1 year. My fee is half of what others charge, and I keep the cost low so that most people have access to the help they need. Also, because each landlord has their own process, form, letter, and communication preference, I make sure all steps are successful for your Emotional Support Animal or Service Animal. I am also easy to get a hold of personally via email, call, or text. In addition to helping people with ESAs and Service Dogs, I see individuals for other mental health needs at my counseling practice, Texas Strengths Based Counseling.

Miki Tesh, PhD, LCSW, Emotional Support Animals of Texas

I received my PhD at the University of Texas at Austin, School of Social Work, where I also taught social work clinical practice (including about the benefits of animal assisted therapy). In addition, I have been practicing as a mental health provider for over 20 years, seeing client’s for depression, anxiety, trauma, and other mental health and medical issues. At this location, I take insurance and see clients long term. My clinical license to practice in TX can be see as active here: LCSW license is #53341, which you can also verify at bhec.texas.gov/verify-a-license

For fun I like hiking with my pets and helping dog and cat rescues at a local animal shelter.
