It really depends on the therapist you will get, typically they might use supportive therapy And a mixture of Cogntive Behavioral therapy, unless of course it is from trauma, then they have a few more options.
Generally conservative measures are tried first such as physical exercise and meditation. IF those prove unhelpful, then trying medications such as SSRI therapy are the most effective and safest medications to try.
