Kristen Wiens Green, PhD, ABPP, Psychologist in Gainesville
I am a Board Certified Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychologist specializing in individual therapy and psychological testing with children and adolescents with a variety of presenting problems. I have specialty training in working with children and adolescents ages 2-18. I have worked successfully with children with developmental delays, behavioral problems, mood disorders, ADHD, adjustment issues (divorce, death, illness, general stressors), anxiety/OCD, and autism spectrum conditions. In therapy, I tend predominantly toward a cognitive-behavioral approach in a developmental framework. I also utilize mindfulness techniques, play therapy, and psychodynamic techniques as well.
I specialize in differential diagnosis, and I believe a proper understanding of the origins and nature of a child's difficulties are key to effective intervention. I approach my work with assessment and therapy clients with the goal of fully understanding each client and his/her unique circumstances.
I work closely with the parents/families of the children in my practice. Children and adolescents are most successful in therapy when their parents/families are committed to being involved and supporting their children in the therapeutic process.
