Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Seeking expert counseling is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.
I am so sorry to hear about your daughters apparent breakdown into depression.
I believe that I can give you some resources who can help her.
I am working on it right now.
Please give me a few minutes.
Rev. Rebecca Spooner, LPCC, NCC
She is located at:
The Laurence Schmidt Center1501 N. University Ave. Suite 570Little Rock, Arkansas 72207
This is related to the Presbyterian Church, but she provides professional licensed counseling.
This is the person I have already referred her to. She has left a voicemail on both her office and cell phone yesterday, and sent an email today.
Would you like me to search a bit further afield, beyond El Dorado?
Rev. Spooner will surely reply to you.
What is the closest larger town to you?
Is there a walk-in clinic in El Dorado that she might be able to go to? I don't think she will drive beyond El Dorado. I don't think she is being reasonable about waiting for an appointment because she wants to talk to someone now.
I have found some more in El Dorado

Now you have some options
How else can I help you?
Thank you so much. One more question: Do you feel that an LPC is the best professional for her? She was going to a psychiatrist before, but he only prescribed medicine and was too busy to talk to her about her feelings. I know she needs counseling too.
Psychiatrists usually do not give therapy. An LPC or psychologist would talk to her and help get to the base causes of her condition. Drugs only mask symptoms, no cure disorders.
I shall keep her in my prayers.
