Catelynn and Dr. Drew go way back: The two met while taping the "Life after Labor" 16 & Pregnant special in 2009 -- and saw each other at subsequent Teen Mom reunions through the years. And during this week's episode, the young mother turned to the familiar advisor for a helping hand.
What prompted the candid conversation between the two? Tyler suggested that the addiction specialist might be able to assist her, after Cate disclosed that she wasn't feeling like herself. When the MTV duo did connect, Dr. Drew pointblank asked Cate if she was okay because she covers everything with her "delightful smile." And then she let her guard down.
"I'm feeling depressed again, and I don't know what to do," she softly admitted.
From there, he assessed her -- asking about the traumas she has dealt with through the years, any medicine she was taking and if she was attending therapy sessions at the time. When the phone exchange ended, Dr. Drew offered to speak to her longtime counselor Kathleen, and they said they would speak soon.
