What happens when I call for counseling support?

When you call, you will speak with a GuidanceConsultant, a master’s- or PhD-level counselor will collect some general information about you and will talk with you about your needs. The GuidanceConsultant will provide the name of a counselor who can assist you. You will receive counseling through the EAP up to 3 sessions per issue, per person, per calendar year. You can then set up an appointment to speak with the counselor over the phone or schedule a face-to-face visit.

What counseling services does the EAP provide?

The EAP provides free short-term counseling with counselors in your area who can help you with your emotional concerns.

If the counselor determines that your issues can be resolved with short-term counseling, you will receive counseling through the EAP. However, if it is determined that the problem cannot be resolved in short-term counseling through the EAP and you require longer-term treatment, you will be referred to a specialist early on and your insurance coverage will be activated.
