My name is Michael DeVine and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas and the author of Failure to Launch. I operate a private counseling & consulting practice in the Plano/North Dallas metro area. I am originally from Columbus, Ohio where I was born and raised. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Otterbein College: A small private school in the suburbs of Columbus. After braving the winters of the Midwest, I decided it was time to move to warmer and greener pastures of Dallas, Texas. I received my Master’s Degree in Psychology from the University of North Texas where I gained specialized training in Marriage & Family Counseling, Individual Psychodynamic/Cognitive Behavioral Counseling, College Counseling, and Psychological Assessment.
I spent the majority of my clinical training and internship working in many different settings to gather additional training to become the best possible therapist that I could be for my clients. Some of the settings that I have worked in are listed below:
- UNT Counseling & Testing Center
- UNT Psychology Clinic
- DFW Center for Autism
- Nelson Residential Treatment Center for Children
- Hickory Trail Mental Hospital
- Adapt Mobile Crisis Assessment
- The Irving Family Advocacy Center
- The Mind Matters Clinic of Texas
In addition to my clinical practice, I am an affiliate executive consultant with the Hay Group, consultant to local area schools and professional organizations, public speaker, and my first book “Failure To Launch” came out in Spring 2013 through Jason Aronson Publishing.
