Our Philosophy

Responsiveness:

Unlike larger, national EAPs, we have deliberately kept our services regional so as to ensure the delivery of the highest quality service. Our clients have come to rely on our responsiveness and competency to effectively address their needs.

Approachability:

Our service is designed and promoted as a resource, verses a mental health service, which we know effectively lessens the stigma attached to seeking assistance. We understand that whether you are an executive dealing with a corporate issue, a manager addressing an employee’s work performance, or an employee struggling with a troubled child, it is hard to ask for help.

Respect:

We have built our reputation on treating each client as we would want ourselves and our family members treated. We believe our strength is found in our diversity and we bring to our work a diverse set of backgrounds, perspectives and talents.

Continuous Improvement:

We work within an environment that fosters continuous growth and learning. We solicit and listen to feedback on how to improve our services.
