EMPOWER YOURSELF WITH CHALLENGER POINT PRACTICE

 

ABOUT

Challenger Point is a 14,087' mountain in Colorado. It is named in honor of the astronauts aboard the Space Shuttle Challenger that exploded in 1986. At the summit, a plaque reads "Ad Astra Per Aspera", which is Latin for "To the stars through adversity." This phrase captures the mission of Challenger Point Practice, the personality of founder Matthew William Carlson, all Challenger Point Practice personnel, and the attitude we want to help you have when you're facing hard times.

We are specialized in disability related services. This includes emotional support animals, psychiatric service dogs, along with accommodations for housing, employment, school, and travel. We also work with client's that need to request short-term disability from work to address mental health concerns. We are skilled in working with insurance companies, disability claims processors, human resources, and supervisors to ensure that adequate workplace accommodations are established, thus allowing clients to have equal opportunities as those without disabilities.

PSYCHIATRIC SERVICE DOGS & EMOTIONAL SUPPORT ANIMALS

If you're seeking a psychiatric service dog or emotional support animal approval, you're in the right place! 

We require a minimum of two appointments with a matched licensed mental health provider in your State to be approved. The first appointment is a psychiatric diagnostic assessment and is conducted using HIPAA compliant methods. The second appointment is to discuss your treatment plan. If approved, your provider will send you a signed recommendation letter which you can use to show proof of ESA/PSD status and is valid for 12 months.


We are currently accepting new clients in Colorado, Texas, Florida, and Virginia. 


We charge $89 total. Some of the cost may be billed to your health insurance if your provider is credentialed. Our staff will work with you to verify your insurance benefits, determine copay, coinsurance, and your deductible information before your assessment.
