Before opening her own practice, Teresa spent a number of years as an outpatient therapist with Catholic Social Services of Oakland County.
Green has extensive experience working with children and adolescents in diverse settings. She runs workshops on treating children and adolescents with mental health issues and has worked as a board social worker reviewing treatment provision standards for compliance in an aquatic rehabilitation facility.
