Climate Anxiety and Grief
The existential experience of grasping and coping with climate change is very different than the grief or anxiety typically seen in a therapists office. Psychotherapy methods like CBT can actually be harmful in this situation because they are designed to challenge the truth of thoughts and beliefs. But climate change IS real, so at best CBT is not helpful, but more likely it is a gaslighting experience.

People often say "I should" or "a part of me feels". We'll explore the various sides of you that seem to contradict each other using holistic psychotherapy called Internal Family Systems (IFS).
If you've done counseling, you've likely experienced cognitive or CBT work. IFS goes much deeper than thoughts so you won't have to manage positivity or hide your genuine Self.
