Become a Counseling Provider
The role of a NuVantage counseling provider is to use the available employee assistance program (EAP) counseling sessions to conduct a thorough assessment of the situation and to assist members in the development of an action plan. In many cases, an individual’s situation can be resolved, or greatly improved, within the available number of employer-covered EAP sessions. The number of employer-covered sessions varies by employer, but is typically at least three sessions.
