  • Stress, depression, and personal problems
  • Balancing work and personal needs
  • Alcohol or drug dependencies
  • Family and relationship concerns
  • Workplace conflicts
  • Adoption Assistance
  • Child and elder care resources
  • Pre and postnatal concerns
  • Grief
  • Financial & Legal consultations

Webinars, webcasts, and podcasts are available as well. They can be accessed by registering on the LifeMatters by Empathia website.

All services are kept strictly confidential. Face-to-face counseling with qualified local counselors is also available and provided at no charge. Brochures are available through University Personnel.
