Employee Assistance

The Employee Assistance Center is always here to listen. Always ready to help.

We all face situations in our lives that cause us concern and emotional pain. We resolve most of those ourselves. But some require special attention—especially when our jobs and personal lives are affected.

The Employee Assistance Center (EAC) is a comfortable, confidential place with compassionate and highly trained staff members who understand what you’re experiencing. They will take the time to listen. The EAC provides assessment, short-term counseling and referral services in a judgement-free space

Our services are provided by your employer at no charge to you

An in-person counseling session is most effective. Being in the counselor’s office, away from your normal environment and its distractions, can help you get more perspective on your issues. Most clients prefer to meet in person, a choice we encourage.

Should you choose phone counseling, please review the privacy policy and agreement documents on the Forms page first so you are assured of the confidential nature of your counseling sessions.

Please explore the resources we’ve provided

The information, helpful links, and self-assessment tools, all are from credible, reputable sources including Mayo Clinic, and recommended by our team of counselors. They will get you started exploring your personal challenges and give you an introduction to some ways of thinking and talking about the issues bothering you. Then, let us help you sort them out and find the resolution you’re looking for.
