When someone has experienced a great deal of change and loss in their lives, it can be very disheartening. They can become depressed, hopeless, and unmotivated to work toward their own recovery. Psychotherapy is an important component of treatment to help people find hope and meaningfulness in their experience. Therapy with a clinical neuropsychologist is especially valuable for “busting myths” and clearing up misunderstandings about a new diagnosis. The doctor can also provide “tried and true” methods to help overcome and/or manage feelings of sadness, anxiety, fearfulness, and fatigue, among others.
