This answer was rated:

I would like to find a therapist using mdma near Washington DC, realize it would have to be underground. Can anyone help ?
Elliott Sewell, LPCC, NCC :

Seeking expert counseling is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.

Elliott Sewell, LPCC, NCC :

Dear friend,

Elliott Sewell, LPCC, NCC :

I strongly empathize with your plight, and realize that MDMA therapy is the next logical step after what you have been through. I assume that you have PTSD.

Elliott Sewell, LPCC, NCC :

There are government projects that you might get on, particularly if you are ex-military. There is ongoing research going on, and you will have to make a lot of inquiries and may just be fortunate enough to contact the right person.

Customer:

yes, chronic and acute

Elliott Sewell, LPCC, NCC :

There have been studies going on in Switzerland and Israel that I have heard of, and there has been much anecdotal evidence to support pursing this avenue further.

Elliott Sewell, LPCC, NCC :

I understand how much you are suffering on a day to day basis, with person experience with a close friend, and with some clients.

Elliott Sewell, LPCC, NCC :

Let me give you a website with links to the best information on the subject. This is the best I can do for you but wanted you to have some kind of lead.

Customer:

Pardon me, but I am specifically looking for contact info for underground MDMA therapists. I know all about MAPS and NIMH and various other trials.

Elliott Sewell, LPCC, NCC :

Then I will opt out and let someone else assist you. I just wanted to help you as one caring person to another who is suffering.

Elliott Sewell, LPCC, NCC :

I wish you great success.

Elliott Sewell, LPCC, NCC :

Warm regards,

Elliott Sewell, LPCC, NCC :

Customer:

I have met many who mean well, and I appreciate your comments, but I am way past looking for warm regards...I have plenty of that already.

Elliott Sewell, LPCC, NCC :

So, you have punished me for trying to give you helpful information. I opted out to give you the opportunity to get other help.

Elliott Sewell, LPCC, NCC :

You are so inappropriately wrong to dis me with negative feedback when my only concern was to lend you a helping hand and some encouragement and give you some information that I did not know you already had. You have the opportunity to give me my deserved positive feedback which is the only way to remove the negative. I did not expect to have my hand bitten when I was only trying to help you. I understand how much you suffer every day, and didn't think my kindness would be returned with negative feedback on my record.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Elliot, I didn't mean to dis you, but I am being specific about my request, and dont need all the other advice. You are clearly doing your best to help, and no intention to mislead or harm.

I have subsequently sought this info elsewhere and found what I need.

thank you, Mark

Dear *****,

I forgive you for putting negative feedback on my permanent record. I know that you are overwrought.

You can change it if you wish.

God bless you and help you find peace and healing.

Warm regards.
