Are you depressed, dealing with anxiety, PTSD an Eating Disorder or some other mental health issue? You probably are wondering what type of therapy works best for you. In my practice in Santa Monica, I use dialectical behavior therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and talk therapy. Of course there are others many others (probably somewhere in the neighborhood of 300). The most common other types of therapy you’ll hear about are: Psychodynamic therapy, Psychoanalysis, Interpersonal therapy, Experiential therapy. 

I’d love to know what therapy methods you have experienced (negative and positive). Let’s talk about it in the comments!

Don’t be mean to people who majored in psychology.

There’s a tendency for people to assume that anyone who majors in psych just doesn’t know what else to do with their lives - that they’re going to college because their parents want them to have a degree, so they might as well do something “easy.”

Let me explain you a thing: psychology is NOT easy. We work just as hard, do the same amount of internships and senior thesis research. Increasingly, psychology is being approached as an entirely scientific field (as opposed to the humanities label it previously labored under); as such, most of us are learning a lot of biology and chemistry, sometimes on our own just to keep up. We’re not resting on our laurels and quoting Freud.

(We fucking hate Freud).

So do us all a favor. The next time someone tells you that their major is psychology, don’t roll your eyes. Instead, ask them why. Ask them about something interesting they’ve learned. Ask them if their focus is cognitive psychology, or social psychology, or school psychology, or behavioral neuroscience. Ask them if they want to research and teach, or if they want to be a practitioner. 

Trust me when I say that they’ll be delighted to relieve you of your prejudices.

There’s this iPhone app called iCouch CBT and you basically like train yourself by doing cognitive behavioral therapy. Totally recommend. Just signal boosting for my followers with mental health/emotional issues. Even if you don’t it’s a good way to assess how you’re feeling why you’re feeling it and how you can turn that thought into something positive
