I'm already one of Dr. Green's therapy clients, can I take the courses or get coaching? 

If you've been a client in Dr. Green's private practice in the past 5 years, then you can purchase the online courses (with a 50% discount), but you can't purchase coaching services. You can view and contribute to the discussion boards and social media groups, but Dr. Green won't acknowledge that you're a therapy client in those forums to protect your privacy and confidentiality. Instead, you can discuss your specific situation as part of therapy sessions instead of coaching sessions. 

Can I arrange a live presentation or on-site training/coaching? 

Yes! I offer workshops on specific topics if you'd like to dig deeper, provide a live training experience for a group of people or organization, or receive private group coaching for a specific group. Please email me a brief description of what you're interested in scheduling to get a personalized price quote.
