Eileen Brown MA, LMFT
Eileen C. Brown is a licensed psychotherapist currently in private practice in Marin and Berkeley, seeing children, their families, and adults.
Eileen has a BA in Social Work from Humboldt State University. She worked with a variety of diverse populations for ten years (battered women, pregnant and parenting teens, low-income preschool children and their families ), before deciding to become a psychotherapist.
Eileen received her MA from Pacifica Graduate Institute in 2006, and trained in a variety of settings with children, families and adults. As an intern, she treated severely emotionally disturbed teen boys in a group home setting, children and families at Head Start in Richmond, and adults and children in community clinic settings. She completed the intensive two-year Post-Graduate Training Program in psychodynamic psychotherapy at The Psychotherapy Institute, and served on their Executive Board.
In her private practice today, Eileen sees folks with a variety of issues. In addition, she has counseled youth and families transitioning to or from inpatient care, high school students at The Bay School, and preteen girls in her Artemis Circle groups. Eileen supervises interns at the Community Institute for Psychotherapy, and contributes to the training of unlicensed therapists there by leading case consultations and teaching about the treatment of eating disorders. She also provides pro bono therapy to refugees through the East Bay Refugee Treatment Group in Berkeley, and provides pro bono psychological evaluations to refugees seeking asylum through Research Institute Without Walls. Her blog, Raising Artemis, focuses on issues specific to raising strong, healthy girls in today’s changing and challenging world.
The mother of two wonderful young adults, Eileen enjoys spending time with her family, riding her mountain bike, hiking and being in nature.
Eileen now brings her experience working with youth and teens, with a special focus on anxiety, eating disorders and self-harming behaviors to our Novato location. If you have questions or concerns about your child, please talk to their doctor, and feel free to call Eileen directly at: (510)269-7029.
