When you arrive, you will be asked to sign a Statement of Understanding, to fill out a pre-screen survey and a client intake form.
These forms allow the counselor to gather important information and allows you the time to focus on the issues of most importance to you when you meet with your counselor.
EAP provides counseling for a variety of issues that can be handled within a brief time frame. While some issues brought to EAP can be addressed within a few sessions, other issues are more complicated or longstanding, and cannot be handled within the scope of EAP. If you have an issue that may take longer to address, it is important to start with a counselor who can continue working with you until the issue is resolved - rather than begin with one counselor and then begin again with a long-term therapy provider when your sessions end. If your issue cannot be handled within the EAP, your counselor will make recommendations for resources that can assist you.
