Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

If you are enrolled in an accepted insurance company, we can help you determine whether you have EAP benefits available to you. Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a voluntary, work-based program that offers free and confidential short-term counseling. For most insurances, you can initiate an authorization with your insurance to start seeing a therapist. You can also contact our office for assistance. Please be sure to let Clinic staff know that you are using your EAP benefits prior to starting services.
