Confidential Counseling

Free, confidential counseling is available through the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) in two ways:

  1. at an outpatient clinic location, or
  2. via an online teletherapy session.

What issues can be addressed?

Any issue may be addressed. Common issues include:

  • Marital, family or relationship issues
  • Legal and financial difficulties
  • Alcohol/substance use
  • Work-related problems
  • Emotional problems (depression, anxiety, etc.)
  • Grief and loss counseling

What is the cost to me?

In any given year, up to three (3) sessions per episode of care are provided at no cost for you and all within your household. Often these sessions are all you need.

What if a different problem arises after my covered sessions are used up?

You are not limited to the number of times you can call with a new episode of care. You are limited to three sessions for any one episode of care.

Will my employer be notified?

All contacts and sessions are confidential. Reports made by the EAP to your employer do not contain any names or specific details.
