Counseling Services

Our counselors are Mental Health Professionals who provide confidential counseling in-person or over the phone for a variety of stressful issues such as marital, family, substance abuse, depression, stress, grief, health, and more. Each counselor carefully listens to your needs and either offers short-term counseling focused on coping strategies or makes an appropriate referral to long-term counseling or specialized care.  All calls are confidential, and no information is provided to your employer, so you can feel confident sharing your situation and needs with eni’s intake specialists and counselors.

Virtual Concierge Services

The NexGen EAP goes well beyond counseling to minimize employee stress. Virtual Concierge Services allow employees to access Virtual Personal Assistants and request research on any topic ranging from locating community resources, childcare and eldercare, to planning for events, travel or purchases. Requests for research are submitted via the web portal, and the information is compiled and sent to the individual’s email within 5-7 business days.

Regardless of what you are searching for, these services will help you cross items off your to-do list without taking time away from your busy day.
