an appointment with Ms. Devlin:
I've maintained a general practice, counseling adolescents, adults, and couples and families- helping people work through a variety of issues.
I appreciate the trust that has been shown by those who have used our services. I look forward to working with you in a way that will help lead you to living a more satisfying and healthful life.
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.
Ms. Devlin previously counseled in a variety of settings including The Center for Parents and Children, Lutheran Social Services, Ruth Dykeman In-home Services, The Bridge for Runaway Youth, and locally at Longwood College and Hampden-Sydney College Counseling Centers.
