Rosana Marzullo-Dove's Expert Contributions
  • Should I go to a doctor for a panic attack?

    You should see a therapist (Psychologist, Psychotherapist, Counselor) to help you with panic attacks. You also could benefit from seeing a psychiatrist give you a (temporary) medication for anxiety. Panic attacks are a natural response to dangerous situations. If you are having it and you are not in danger, then you need to get skills to help yourself. Look for someone that you will like to work with. Be well.

  • How can I control my anxiety?

    Anxiety can be "controlled" by learning skills in treatment with a psychologist/therapist. Psychiatrists can give you medicine to help your anxiety to "calm down." But the medicine won't cure anxiety. It's only a band-aid per se. You will have to learn skills in therapy in order to control your anxiety. Consult with a therapist. READ MORE

  • What are bipolar people like?

    People diagnosed with bipolar disorder shows up with mood swings. They are full of energy at times (intense, hyper, spending, sexual, or angry energy) OR they are low in energy and motivation, and presenting with depressive symptoms. Their brain needs specific types of medication that are different than just medication for depression. These swings can last a couple of months. Consult with your therapist. READ MORE

  • Do lonely men tend to commit crimes?

    Not generally. However, I’ve of the traits seen in men committing crimes is that they can get away with it because nobody is checking what they are doing. READ MORE

  • Should I see a psychologist if I can't get over my ex?

    Yes. All life transitions may warrant a story of a psychologist. You are going through a grief moment after a loss of a loved one, a loss of the ideal future you designed for you both, etc. A psychologist can help you. READ MORE

  • How long does therapy take for anxiety?

    Not very long. Anxiety is the easiest treatment in psychotherapy. I’d say you can be well healed in about 6 months. Be well, Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE

  • What is the difference between a psychologist and a neuropsychologist?

    A psychologist will treat all emotional issues, relationship, children, school, grief, transition, acculturation, etc. A neuropsychologist only treats issues caused by traumatic brain injury (natural or not), such as sports concussions, stroke, Alzheimer’s, excessive drug use that caused the brain to suffer, therefore caused issues. READ MORE

  • Can couples therapy make things worse?

    It depends on what you mean by worse. Yes, couples therapy can lead to separation and divorce, or worse, domestic abuse if that is what is happening already. So, couples' therapists are to be very professional, careful, and gentle in how to approach couples' issues. Think of a doctor who put an enormous flashlight to care for a neglected old wound. People at times do not like to have that old stuff come to light. The best part is that you can have clarity on what type of person you are having a relationship with and if that's what you want to continue, providing the person does not want to better themselves or the relationship. Be well. READ MORE

  • Can you recover from anxiety disorder?

    Anxiety disorder is one of the easiest disorder to get treated. You don’t “recover” per day. You learn to manage it and understand it. You also learn skills to avoid it. Go see a therapist. Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE

  • Seeing something that was not there?

    Yes and no. Hallucinations (seeing/hearing things that are not there) can be caused by many different things: One - could be drugs reacting in your brain, another could be depression, or could be some types of mental disorders (usually comes up between ages 20 and 40). If it only happened once, and you were not depressed then, just make a mental note of what type of medication you were on, and observe if it happens again in the future under the same medication. READ MORE

  • How do you deal with short term anxiety?

    Anxiety is alleviated by working through it in therapy. There are some medications you can take, but it only put a small band-aid in it. You'll actually have to see a psychologist help you overcome this issue. Usually, this treatment is not too long if you keep up with the homeworks and are willing to look deep into your past issues. Be well. READ MORE

    Hello, Depression and anxiety are not disability. They are mental health issues.

  • Do antidepressants make you worse before better?

    No. The moment you start taking meds they will start interacting with your brain cells. It might take about 4 weeks before you see concrete improvement. In these 4 weeks, you might feel more depressed off your triggers are still present or even if you believe your meds are not working when in fact they are. Keep taking your meds as prescribed and follow doctor's directions to augment medication amount or strength. Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE

  • Will my depression go on its own?

    It depends. There are researches that tell us that most depression will go away on its own after 4 to 6 months. However, if it's a type of depression that is debilitating you and you cannot function normally, you should look for both psychiatric (meds) and psychological (talk) help to get a good treatment for it. Be well, Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE

  • Can depression be passed down?

    Yes, there's a possibility, because there is a genetic component of depression. Also, when you live with someone with depressive symptoms, that environment itself can be a depressive environment, too - where people cannot talk loud or be lively since the depressive person is down or sleeping. READ MORE

  • What can a psychologist do for anxiety?

    I treat patients with anxiety daily. I use an integrative psychodynamic approach where I teach the patient a handful of skills (coming from CBT, ACT, EFT, mindfulness, etc.) and provide psychoeducation - all necessary to be able to calm your body down. Then I use some psychoanalytic approach to find the origin and maintenance of the anxiety. This treatment is not too long, but very effective. Be well, Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE
