Dr. Devins joined Psychological Care Associates in 1997. He provides evaluations and ongoing short term and long term psychotherapy with individual adults and couples. He has been trained in a Couples Developmental style, with an emphasis on teaching communication skills. He has also for many years taught and worked with individuals with anger management issues. He was originally trained in a psychoanalytic/psychodynamic theoretical model, which he now uses to help understand the individual personality and relationship with the therapist. However, his initial goals involve helping alleviate detrimental symptoms using a variety of cognitive behavioral methods prior to engaging in a self exploratory psychotherapy.
