Kauai Counseling is centrally located in the Lihue Plantation Building, behind the Lihue Post Office and First Hawaiian Bank. We have both daytime and evening appointments available. A session lasts 50 minutes. We work with clients on a variety of issues, including:
Personal problems can and do interfere with an employee's ability to perform on the job. To help employees perform at their best, many employers offer what is known as an employee assistance program. The EAP provides confidential assessment, referral, and help in solving personal and/or work problems that can interfere with job performance.
The services received from Kauai Counseling & EAP are protected by state and federal laws concerning confidentiality. Any information shared between an employee and the staff is strictly confidential. Kauai Counseling & EAP will not release any information without written permission from the employees.
Kauai Counseling & EAP serves all employees and their household members. You may call to make an appointment. There is no charge for this service.
Participation will not jeopardize your job. In fact, any assistance you receive in correcting a job performance problem may be looked upon as favorable. However, your participation in the EAP will not protect you from disciplinary action if you are referred to the program because of substandard job performance.
Counselors are Master's level licensed therapists as well as Certified Substance Abuse Counselors (CSACs).
