We all experience personal stress at some point in our lives. For those times when you might need a little extra support and guidance, your EAP is just a phone call away.

Many people call the EAP seeking assistance with the following personal concerns:
  • Emotional health issues such as depression and anxiety
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Family/Parenting concerns
  • Work-related stress
  • Substance abuse issues
  • Gambling problems
  • Changes at home or work
  • Lifestyle changes such as eating habits, smoking cessation and stress management

Assessment process
A professional EAP counselor can help you clarify the nature of your concern. Our caring counselors help you evaluate what options are available to help you address these concerns. This assessment can be done by phone or in person at a time and location convenient for you.

Short-term counseling
If it is determined that your issue can be addressed or resolved within a short-term framework, then short-term counseling is available within the EAP. Your counselor will help you explore options for change and help you make the choices needed to move forward.

Sometimes further assistance is needed beyond the EAP. Every eftort is made to provide the most appropriate and cost effective resources available to address your concerns. Our EAP counselors will take the time to present a variety of options as well as prepare you to take the next step.
