Compassion Counseling’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) focuses on helping employees handle stressors related to work, family, relationship problems, and drug or alcohol struggles. The employee assistance program aims to assist employees:
- Understand issues that directly impact them, even some underlying issues
- Clarify those issues and explore how to address said issues
- Develop plans to tackle the issues and find helpful solutions
Depending on the EAP agreements, the EAP services may include employees and their family members. The services offered by CC will remain confidential. Even though the employer is paying for the services, they have absolutely no insight into how an employee is specifically using the employee assistance program. Employees may need to know that the number of sessions they can receive may be limited based on EAP agreements, and EAP may not be a long-term counseling solution but will help steer the employee in that direction.
EAP Services will include (individual, couple, family)
- Mental health issues: I.e., depression, anxiety, anger management, low self-esteem, stress management
- Personal or family issues: I.e., physical, or emotional abuse by a partner, domestic violence, separation, divorce, or parenting and step-parenting issues, marriage or couple counseling co-parenting seminars.
- Workplace conflicts: I.e., work-life balance, managing conflict or relationships with a difficult manager or co-workers, performance problems, adjusting to changes in the workplace, bullying and harassment, and managing work-related stress.
- Substance abuse: I. e., alcohol or drug addiction, dealing with an employee’s addiction, or dealing with a family member’s addiction.
- Grief assistance: I. e., supporting employees who have lost a loved one, employees feeling the loss of a co-worker, or a major incidence at work
The therapists at Compassion Counseling are not qualified to provide legal advice or offer financial counseling. However, the EAP service will include making referrals on a needed basis.
- Community Resource Referrals

- Single point of contact for all administrative questions
- Satisfaction surveys with the option to remain anonymous
