EAP counseling services are provided for up to six sessions. If a referral for additional services or treatment is necessary, EAP counselors will help employees locate services that are convenient, appropriate and affordable. Counselors are licensed health care professionals including psychologists, clinical social workers,  and marriage and family therapists.

EAP appointments may be made outside of or during work hours. Most supervisors allow employees to use EAP services during work time. For confidentiality purposes, you may treat your EAP appointment as a medical appointment. You should use accrued disability/sick leave for EAP appointments during work hours.
