Rosana Marzullo-Dove's Expert Contributions
  • 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

  • Is anxiety and depression a disability?

    Hello, Depression and anxiety are not disability. They are mental health issues. However, you may get qualified as disabled (by social security office) if your symptoms are debilitating and persistent regardless of medication and therapy. There are many types of treatment for them. I hope I answered your question. Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE

  • 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

  • Mental health issues from date rape drugs?

    Hello, I'm sorry to hear you went through this experience. This must have left you feeling more vulnerable and anxious about the works and people around you. A sense of safety is one of our primary needs. When that gets violated, it can leave you with a sense on uncertainty and build up a lot anxiety. It is imperative that you engage in therapy to process this vulnerability and any anxiety steamed from this experience. Regards, Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE

  • Does cognitive behavior therapy help couples?

    Yes. CBT will challenge your thoughts, biases, and schemas and will help you look into the behaviors that are necessary to change in order to have a better relationship. CBT is a small part of Gottman therapy, that uses an array of techniques for different issues. Try to find a good personality to help you both and hello your relationship. Be well, Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE

  • Is generalized anxiety disorder different from just anxiety?

    In a nutshell, it is the same thing. The difference is that some people may only have anxiety about something specific, such as crossing a bridge, or walking by a dog, whereas other people (like you) might have more than one situation that brings you anxiety (therefore, generalized). Anxiety is one of the easiest disorder to treat with a psychologist. Find one that fits what you're looking for and start your process right away. Be well, Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE

  • What constitutes as a severe mental illness?

    Most "mental illnesses" are in a continuum - there are mild cases and there are severe cases. A lot of people (50% of the population will at some point suffer from a form of "mental illness" in their lifetime) suffer from depression and after a while (3 to 6 months) the depression goes away. The severe case is when it does not go away, and causes many issues in other parts of their life: such as work, relationship, or even development of psychosis). Other severe mental illness is like what you'd see in people suffering from schizophrenia, or other debilitating illness. Be well, Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE

  • Depression and anxiety with nurses? Impaired?

    Working with a psychologist is confidential! Unless you want to use health insurance, of course! I suggest my patients pay out of pocket instead of using their insurance if they can, so that will guarantee a wholesome treatment without the fear of outside interferences. It is the best investment you will ever do for yourself. I'm sure it is not easy to live with the symptoms you are presenting. Be well, Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE
