What our clients say...

  • anger

    I'm in customer service and you can't believe the things people say on the phone to me. Today's anger management workshop gave me concrete tools for dealing with callers more effectively, while at the same time lowering my stress levels and saving my sanity!

    Turns out my son developed a pretty serious problem with prescription drugs. It turned our family upside down and after spending several hours calling hotlines and searching online for a rehab, I saw the EAP poster in our break room. The counselor could not have been nicer and I was able to bring my son in that night! My son isn't out of the woods yet, but things are better and we are finally sleeping again.

    My employer has had an EAP for ten years and I never thought to use it until my Mom moved back home and I really needed some guidance and support. Thanks for helping me through a tough time and pointing me in the right direction!
