Butterfly Effect, The - Psychologist Knows About Past Lives?
As we know, Evan can change his past to create new lives for him and those around him. As the movie progresses, we learn that Evan's new lives take their natural course until the moment he returns to the present.
Now, towards the end of the movie, when Evan is in the psychologist's office after being accused of killing Kayleigh, the doctor mentions several of Evan's other lives as being "invented" to block out the truth.
If his life took its natural course until that point, even Evan would not have remembered his other lives until then, so how could he have mentioned to the doctor before now?

It's made clear in the movie that Evan still remembers memories are erased or overwritten. That's why he goes into seizures and gets a nose bleed upon his "return"...the massive influx of years worth of new memories. At one point in the movie the doctor even mentions something along the lines of massive changes in Evan's brainwaves or CAT scan or something, and Evan explains to his mom that it's the result of packing 30 years of memory into the span of 1 year (or something like that). At another point in the movie, Evan explains to the hooker Kaleigh about their frat boy/sorority alternate life. In other words, it's made crystal clear in the movie that Evan DOES remember everything from all the alternate lives he lives.
