How It Works
EAP support is easy to access. When you first contact EAP, you’ll talk with one of our staff to identify your concerns and match you with the right support. Then, you meet with a local professional counselor in person or by phone, who will provide you with FREE confidential advice, help you develop an action plan, and suggest other helpful resources.
EAP support is short-term and solution-focused. Your benefit includes up to 3 sessions, and covers all household adults. And, EAP can be used multiple times a year if you have new problems to address.
Private and Confidential
Your participation in EAP is voluntary and strictly confidential. We do not report back to your employer about the things you discuss in private counseling conversations. To learn more about how we protect your privacy and the limited exceptions to confidentiality, call us or visit our website.
EAP offers free, confidential resources to help solve life’s problems — no matter how big or small. EAP is a service of Washington State Department of Enterprise Services.
