Bridgitte Green, AMFT
You are here because the experience of becoming a parent is just not what you expected: perhaps you are feeling fear, exhaustion, disappointment, guilt, having relationship difficulties, and challenges managing friendships. I am here to assist as you navigate these difficult emotions and provide a safe space to talk and develop coping skills.
Hi! My name is Bridgitte and I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist working under the supervision of Lisa Bertelle, LMFT. This is my third career and I have gained experience and knowledge in various professions that have proven helpful as a therapist. I enjoy working with others as they navigate the road to parenthood by helping with the emotions, experiences, and difficulties that no one told us about.
I became a mother through the birth of my son at 26 weeks, adoption, and foster care. My son is now an adult with autism. I was not prepared for his birth and recovery, which changed my life and parenting forever. Therefore, I understand getting pregnant, completing a pregnancy, and parenting are difficult for everyone involved. I have the skill and personal knowledge to provide support to clients who experience pregnancy loss, stillbirth, miscarriage, pregnancy, birth trauma, mood disorders, couples therapy, and women's issues. I look forward to offering non-judgmental support to individuals and couples as they navigate pregnancy and parenthood. I use various therapeutic perspectives to support you through your journey, however, remaining strengths-based is important to me.
I am a native Californian, born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. I attended California State University Dominguez Hills where I received my Bachelor’s degree in Human Services. I also attended Pepperdine University and received Master’s degrees in Education and Psychology, with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my daughter and the foster girls who come through my home. We enjoy movies, the park, amusement parks and the beach. I also make sure to have self-care time childfree (don’t ever forget you are allowed to need that time!). I look forward to working with you and providing support.
