Thank you for reviewing my profile. Hopefully you’ll find my experience and skills are what you seek to address your concerns. In my years as a psychotherapist and working and helping others I realize it takes much courage to open your life to someone you don’t know so, if this is your first psychotherapy experience, I congratulate you on taking this first step towards achieving the life you want to live.
Throughout my career I have provided services to all ages and many varied populations, including children, teens, adults, families and couples.
I'm a graduate of the University of Texas at Arlington Graduate School of Social Work and hold a Masters of Science of Social Work Degree. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Texas and a member of the National Association of Social Workers.
My 30+ years of providing psychotherapy services include work on children’s psychiatric hospital units, both as staff and as a visiting therapist, as a unit director of a children's and adolescent's residential treatment facility, as staff therapist and director of several community mental health centers, and operate my own private practice. As a martial artist, I created and implemented a program for children and adolescents that featured Tai Chi in combination with group therapy to facilitate change by transferring the principles of discipline learned in Tai Chi to experience success at home and in other areas of their life. Though this program was specifically designed for children experiencing ADHD, it was found to be successful with children experiencing other emotional and behavioral issues.
As a result, these experiences have provided me with a working understanding of some of the challenges faced by teenagers and their families, as well as, the training in methods and techniques to help them meet and overcome these challenges, such as behavior management, behavior modification, social and interpersonal relationship skills training.
The most important aspect of helping teens appropriately deal with the stresses and obstacles in their life is promoting and encouraging positive family relationships and communications I find is often the catalyst for positive change.
It would be my pleasure to talk with you and your teen about the concerns placing stress on you and your family and help you achieve the quality of life you seek.

Mr. Green is very knowledgeable. He helped me to break apart the litany of issues that I had to just start with one that would produce multiple responses. He was very helpful.
Ed is compassionate in his approach to provide help. He listens and seeks to understand how you feel. He has helped me to work through and to make sense of a challenging season. I am truly grateful for his support and guidance.
Ed has been such a help in our limited time together, I look forward to working with him in the future
We love ED Green!!!
My first two sessions have been great. Ed has provided things to work on during the week and helpful resources for deeper understanding on what I'm working through. His knowledge & expertise has been very insightful and his calm, caring demeanor instantly made me feel comfortable opening up & getting to work on becoming the best version of myself!
It’s been a tremendous experience thus far working with Ed Green. I’d be here all day explaining the many things that he’s done for me in such a short frame of time but instead I’ll say if you do get the opportunity to have him as your counselor, look no further and if he is unable to help you he won’t force it but truly help you find what you need to get the help you need.
I really feel like he understands me and he listens to me and is able to help me express what I’m trying to say this has all been new to me and he’s been very helpful.
