Intimate relationships are an integral part of the human experience. The need and desire for connection to another is as much a part of our lives as is our need for safety, well-being and satisfaction. FEAP provides confidential, face to face consultations for individuals or couples wanting to address relationship concerns. Educational seminars on topics specific to relationships are also provided upon request. Services are designed to aid couples in clarifying their needs and providing referral to additional resources if desired.

The goal of FEAP is to support the health and well-being of the organization through service to its employees.  At some point all employees will experience developmentally expected changes in their primary relationship.  Many will experience an unexpected or sudden change, or relationship discord that may heavily impact daily functioning at work.  Some will also choose to end relationships through separation or divorce.  FEAP interventions are designed to identify, educate and assist individuals and couples at all stages of their relationships.
