About Us

Cynthia Devlin, LPC LMFT

Devlin Counseling Center

I have practiced as a psychotherapist, offering both brief and in-depth counseling in a variety of settings.  In 1993 I  opened my private practice in Farmville.    I  offer individual (with adolescent and adult) and  couples counseling but at this time I am not accepting new clients since I am winding down my long-time practice in Farmville of the past 23 years with plans to relocate it later this summer.  

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Marriage and Family Therapist  who has developed an eclectic approach  including Gestalt, Systems, cognitive-behavioral methods enhanced by additional training in holistic methods with dreams,creative arts,yoga  and EMDR. 
My couples work is especially influenced by the modalities of Imago and Emotionally Focused Therapy. I look forward to helping my clients gain awareness and new skills, including navigating a crisis, transitions or deep trauma work.   This work is very satisfying, based on the value of creating  safe, authentic and supportive therapeutic relationships. I am honored to both witness and guide people on their journeys towards wholeness.  

My  approach has a foundation in my own self-care practices and enjoyments such as gardening, walking and bicycling, yoga and the creative arts.
