Jaime Lam is an advanced doctoral student in the Dept. of Counseling Psychology at UW-Madison. He completed his undergraduate degree in Psychology at Middlebury College in Vermont before spending 5 years working in Mie Prefecture, Japan to develop anti-racism interventions for schools and government agencies. His return to graduate studies in Counseling Psychology was motivated by a desire to use research and clinical practice to increase access to mental health services for historically underserved populations and provide care that is more responsive to marginalized clients’ experiences with stigma and discrimination. Jaime’s approach to therapy focuses on helping clients identify, and let go of, the unhelpful beliefs about self-worth that make it difficult to meet our emotional and psychological needs. He sees therapy as a collaborative process of exploration that enhances clients’ natural ability to heal and grow. In his spare time, Jaime enjoys playing with his energetic dog, doing martial arts, and cooking/eating food.

Anna (Kawennison) Fetter is an advanced doctoral student in Counseling Psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She was born in rural Upstate New York and is a member of the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe or Kanienʼkehá꞉ka people. Anna completed her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Native American Studies at Dartmouth College, and received her Master’s in Education from Harvard University. Anna then moved to Oregon and worked in Student Affairs for several years before coming to Madison. Throughout the years, Anna has been passionate about working with college students. As a counselor, Anna values understanding each individual’s unique experiences, and seeks to create a space where students feel seen, empowered, as well as supported. Anna integrates various approaches into her therapeutic work, and believes in the power of understanding our past experiences and our current patterns of engagement in the world. Within this framework, Anna believes we can shift or strengthen our patterns to allow for healing and growth. Anna’s particular areas of interest within therapy include identity development, experiences with trauma (whether present or past), emotional expression and management (DBT Skills), depression and anxiety, and concerns related to relationships with family, friends, or partners. In her free time, Anna also enjoys exercise, spending time outside, and good conversations with friends.
