About Eileen Devine, Licenced Clinical Social Worker
Eileen Devine is a therapist in Portland, Oregon USA who works with parents of children with neurobehavioral challenges through her private clinical practice, FASD Northwest. She has over a dozen years of clinical experience, with a special emphasis on working with families impacted by Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) and other brain-based, neurobehavioral conditions that have challenging and confusing behavioural symptoms. With the use of teleconferencing technology, she consults with parents nationally and internationally, providing them with the support they need to implement the neurobehavioral model into their everyday parenting and interactions with their child. Eileen is an instructor for the Post-Master’s Certificate in Adoption and Foster Family Therapy through Portland State University’s Child Welfare Partnership where she teaches other providers about FASD and how to use the neurobehavioral model in their work with families impacted by this disability. She has the great fortune of facilitating dozens of other trainings and workshops for parents and providers each year on a variety of topics that are relevant to the experience of being a parent of a child with a neurobehavioral condition. In addition to this professional experience, Eileen has the lived experience of parenting a child with a diagnosis of FASD, so understands intimately the day-to-day struggles her clients are working through. Her goal is to support parents and caregivers of children with these frequently misunderstood brain-based conditions on their unique parenting journey so that they, their children, and their family can thrive.
