The Counseling Psychology Training Clinic (CPTC) has four permanent clinical staff along with several graduate students in the counseling psychology program. We’re excited to meet you!
Community Support Specialists
Through an innovative partnership between CPTC and University Health Services, the Community Support Specialists provide mental health-related services to UW–Madison students enrolled under Division of Diversity, Equity & Educational Achievement programs such as CeO, Chancellor’s Scholars, First Wave, Pathways, PEOPLE, POSSE, and McNair, and Powers-Knapp Scholars. Services are intended to offer students culturally competent mental health support that enhances their academic engagement and performance.

She is thrilled to serve the DDEEA community and feels honored in joining each individual’s journey of growth and healing. Her primary approach is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). In Zoua’s free time, she likes to listen to crime podcasts, explore skincare, and watch Asian dramas and children’s movies.
Zubin DeVitre, M.S.
Zubin DeVitre is a fourth-year doctoral student in the Counseling Psychology department at UW-Madison. After obtaining his BA in psychology (with a minor in ethnic studies) from Bowling Green State University, Zubin received his M.S. in Clinical/Counseling psychology from New Mexico Highlands University and worked as a college counselor for one year before coming to UW-Madison. During his time at UW-Madison, Zubin has worked with a variety of clients and patients and also worked as lead TA for Academic Enhancement Seminar (AES) and as mentor for the Posse program. Starting his first year at the CPTC, Zubin is excited to implement what he’s learned throughout his time at UW-Madison, finish his final year in Madison at the CPTC, and continue helping the communities that he hopes to serve.
As a second-generation South Asian American, Zubin’s clinical and research interests focus on marginalized populations (specifically South Asian American populations). Specifically, Zubin focuses on helping clients understand, process, and work with their emotions while also working to challenge the systemic barriers that many marginalized populations face. Working out of a cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) lens, Zubin helps clients understand their thoughts and feelings in relation to how they influence our reactions to the world around us.
