If you’re in private practice, you wear a lot of hats. And some of those hats are totally great. But some — like filing taxes and running payroll, for example — not so great. That’s where Gusto comes in. Gusto makes payroll, taxes, and HR actually easy for small businesses. Fast, simple payroll processing, benefits, and expert HR support all in one place. Gusto automatically pays and files your federal, state, and local taxes so you don’t have to worry about it. Plus they make it easy to add on health benefits and even 401(k)s for your team. So let them wear one of your many hats — you have better things to do. Listeners get three months free when they run their first payroll. Try a demo and see for yourself at gusto.com/pps.

PPS Paperwork – Knowing you need legal, ethical, and competent paperwork is overwhelming, time consuming, and expensive! We’re clinicians, not lawyers. We put in 100+ hours of work, combed through the laws and ethics, and paid thousands of dollars in expensive attorney fees so you don’t have to.

Startup Nation, Meet:
Rebecca Stone, LMHC

Rebecca Stone, or Becky, as most people call her, provides counseling services to clients, as well as consulting for mental health professionals.

 

Becky presented about Emotional Support Animals at the 9th annual American College Counseling Association national conference, helped create a university's ESA policy, and specializes in ESAs in her private practice.

 

With her consulting, she strives to help mental health professionals go from confused and stressed out by Emotional Support Animal requests to competent and confident with ESA assessments while preparing their practices to welcome ESA requests along the way!

Show Notes:

Concern 1: Uncertainty around what Emotional Support Animals are.
This might sound like: 
"What is an Emotional Support Animal (ESA) and how is it different than Service or Therapy Animals?"

Concern 2: Scope of Practice and Liability Issues
This might sound like: 
"I automatically say 'no' when a client asks for an ESA letter because it’s not within my scope of practice." OR
"I don’t want to be held liable if an animal causes harm to someone." OR
"I won’t provide a letter unless I meet with the animal and observe its behavior first."

Concern 3: The letter!
This might sound like:
"What should be included in an ESA letter?" OR
"Where can I get an ESA letter template I can use to write a letter for my client?"
