One of the leading causes of depression involves relationship conflict or brokenness. We understand how devastating it can be when a relationship separates or falls apart. We specialize in helping people overcome their depression and regain the happy energy that life once held for them. It's not as hopeless as it feels. We've helped countless people recover and thrive from a broken relationship.

Depression numbs and immobilizes. You may feel stuck, without light, hope, or energy. This phenomena is both physical and mental. Dr. Staat can help you get unstuck by teaching you to deal with both sides: (1) to notice and change negative thought patterns; and, (2) to pay attention to how suppressed emotions express themselves through your body. Learning to express thoughts and release suppressed feelings can lead to permanent recovery. Medication can also be an important adjunct to treatment, especially when depression is severe.

At the beginning of treatment, I work to stabilize someone experiencing depression or depressed mood. We discuss the benefits of a daily routine, scheduling pleasant activities, social support, nutrition, exercise, overall wellness & spirituality. We then move into work understanding the history of the depression & potential causes, as well as triggers of the depressed mood. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which has been researched & is an evidence based treatment for depression. This therapy teaches you how to become aware of your thoughts & the way they impact your mood. It is not difficult to learn & you will see benefits from the tools & techniques we discuss when you apply them!

I work with clients with a range of mood disorders to include depression and will work with you to help you get back to living life fully, the way you remembered it before you felt depressed. When you have depression, it can be a daunting task to even get out of bed in the mornings and my job is to make that easier for you. The goal is for you to live a happy, healthy and fulfilled life that you feel is worth living. Together we will work to achieve this outcome.

This is confusing for most people who don't suffer from it. Can't we all relate to feelings of depression?How many of you hear stories of how someone has pulled out of it with their own will power or been given suggestions to take a bath or serve others? If you are struggling with the condition, this can make you feel misunderstood, angry, invalidated and alone. Depression is not anyone's fault. Look in your family tree. Anyone else seem to fighting this? It runs in families because it is about heritable sensitivities in your body, like allergies or cancers. If you struggle with depression, even if it seems to come and go, please get help. There are people who get it and are there for you.
