Dear friend,

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

You asked a broad question that required more information.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Rather than replying with the needed information you have just given me negative feedback. That was a small clue that you may be suffering from depression, but it is not enough to allow me to help you and give you a proper answer.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Please tell me more about some of your behavior other than saying you have a problem concentrating. The more that you tell me, the better I can help you.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Warm regards,

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :
