About Me

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.

I am also the author of the book, Escape from Insanity Illusions and Lies, that's available on Amazon.

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.

With only a few sessions logged, my child and I feel that we are already making progress. Ed Green has been instrumental in our healing process.

I love the way Ed Green handles counseling, I feel like he truly understands me as if he could read my mind and my heart. In such a short period of time I have seen a small improvement within myself, the week between our meetings feels lighter now.

Me and my SO have talked with Ed only two times and already we are communicating better and resolving our "tiffs" quicker. He is caring, patient and has a gentle smile at all the right times.

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.

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.
