Debra Jill Green, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Los Angeles
Is it ever difficult to understand your child's behavior or your teen's angst? Do they speak a language or behave in a way you find challenging? Children from infancy through adolescence can seem unmanageable at times causing parents to feel overwhelmed and powerless. Why continue struggling? If your child is having a difficult time at home, in school, or with friends, I can offer insights and recommendations as well as provide a safe space for everyone to learn respectful, meaningful communication directed toward positive change. Let me help you and your family get there together.
In working with children and their families, I have developed experience with infants, parent-infant play and feeding interactions, teen pregnancy and teen parenting, court-ordered or volunteer parenting groups, academic concerns and IEP advocacy, pervasive developmental disorders and Regional Center advocacy, crisis counseling, divorce, couples, adults and family work.
I have a strong interest in the theory of attachment. The quality of attachment in the relationship between a caregiver and child provides valuable information about how future relationships develop. Understanding attachment can help with children and their behavior; parenting ability; and adult interactions, either in friendship or in romance.

Debra Jill Green's Groups

Parenting Support Group

I am offering a supportive and intervention focused parenting group for parents of young children, through elementary school. If there are enough members, the group will be split by age group to offer more specific interventions. I will address relevant topics for each developmental stage and provide a therapeutic environment for group members to share their expereinces and difficulties while feeling supported by other group members and by me as the therapist.

More about this group

Toddler Group

Come join other parents of toddlers and learn ways to manage and understand your toddler's development. Sometimes toddlers' wish for independence and their limited language can seem frustrating to parents who want to help their little ones to function well within the family and out in the world, such as the grocery store or a restaurant! Please bring your toddlers for fun play time while learning hands on techniques to guide them successfully.
