Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

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

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Dear friend,

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

I believe that I can help you.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

The best way to change your situation is by taking actionl

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

What you need first is a job - any kind of job if you are broke.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

I suggest that you pound the pavement if you must, and find any kind of job, even if it is low paying and temporary.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Just the fact of getting out there and meeting other people, getting some exercise doing it, getting dressed appropriately, etc. will be so very therapeutic for you.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

This is the best way to end the cycle of depression - by attacking the cause and certainly not by taking medications for situational depression.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

If you went to a psychotherapist you would explore the stressors in your life, and this would be the one that you would focus in on and try to remedy by searching for anything to keep you occupied and get you a little bit of money, which is better than none.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

I wish you great courage in getting out and doing your best, ***** ***** you are feeling down. You must fight it with action and not let it pull you further down into the endless pit of despair.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

I shall keep you in my prayers for the perseverance to pull yourself up.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Warm regards,
