Eileen's goal is to support parents in feeling more competent and confident in connecting with their child from a brain-based perspective, while simultaneously honoring and addressing the experience of parenting a child with challenging behavioral symptoms and the impact this has on a parent's sense of self and well-being.

Therapist | Support Coach | Parent

Eileen Devine, LCSW, has over a dozen years of clinical experience and is the adoptive mother of a child with fetal alcohol syndrome. She believes that kids do well if they can, and that when we understand the way a child's brain works, we then understand the meaning behind challenging behaviors. Eileen is a certified facilitator in the teaching and application of the neurobehavioral model, as developed by FASCETS founder, Diane Malbin. She has also completed Tier 1 training in Think:Kids Collaborative Problem Solving. Eileen is an instructor for the Post-Master Certificate in Adoption and Foster Therapy through Portland State University's Child Welfare Partnership, training other therapists on the neurobehavioral model.
