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.
