Employee Assistance Program

From time to time, each of us experience difficulties that we are unable to handle on our own. Employee Assistance Service (EASE) is a voluntary, private and confidential program provided through Center for Families and Children (CFC). This service provides counseling and community resources for benefits-eligible employees and family members to help identify problems and develop plans for resolution.

EASE uses the services of more than 40 licensed, credentialed counseling professionals including psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers and other trained counselors in more than 30 Northeast Ohio locations. In addition, EASE has a national counseling network with several hundred providers.

Concerns may include:

  • Personal issues

  • Anxiety
  • Marital matters
  • Divorce adjustment and options
  • Retirement coaching 
  • Chemical dependency and abuse
  • Parenting issues
  • Work-related stress
  • Legal and financial questions
