While Waiting for Your Therapy Appointment

You’ve decided to see a professional counselor, but your chosen psychotherapist isn’t available for a couple weeks or more. It’s difficult waiting, and you feel a burning need to start. Contact your company’s EAP for short-term support. The EAP won’t provide psychotherapy services, but there is a lot of "pre-therapy" work you might be able to achieve, like getting clarity on the problems and issues you face, thinking about goals, learning about how psychotherapy works, what to expect from therapy, and how to get the most out of it.

UR Medicine EAP is brought to you by Well-U, helping eligible individuals to assess issues, and provide short-term counseling and referrals.
