Tiffany Jones is an advanced doctoral student in Counseling Psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. Tiffany completed a Bachelor’s degree in psychology from Cornell University. Throughout her clinical training, she has nurtured a passion for working with college students from diverse academic, social, and racial backgrounds. While she integrates different approaches into her therapeutic work, she commonly explores how past attachment experiences influence how individuals interact on both an interpersonal and intrapersonal level in their present lives. Within this framework, she also draws upon a strengths-based worldview, such that she does not emphasize deficits, but tends to focus on how individuals are adaptive and doing the best they can with the resources and insights available to them. In her various roles on campus, she strives to break down stigma and foster honest conversations about the importance of mental health and well-being. In order to model the importance of well-being and self-care, she enjoys cooking new recipes, hair styling, attending music festivals, and spending time with loved ones in her free time. 

​Ivan Enzo Cabrera is an advanced doctoral student in the Dept. of Counseling Psychology at UW-Madison. He was born in Peru, but was raised in Los Angeles, CA. Ivan completed his degree in Bio-Psychology at UC-Santa Barbara, and received his Master’s in Clinical Psychology at Pepperdine University in California. While in California, Ivan dedicated much of his time working with under-resourced and under-represented families. After completing his degrees in California, he moved to Boston to work at Boston Children Hospital on an NIH study investigating the effects of intergenerational stress. Currently Ivan is interested in learning and understanding how students from historically under-represented groups navigate the institutions of higher education. As a counselor, Ivan believes that the emotional connections we have with our identities, and our past experiences, influence the patterns through which we respond to the world. In his free time, Ivan enjoys sports, music, movies and checking out new restaurants​.
