Hello! My name is Zubin DeVitre, I am a practicum clinician here at Edgewood College and currently pursuing my PhD in Counseling Psychology from UW-Madison, both in counseling services and in research. I love working with students and am very excited to be working with the Edgewood community!
I received my B.A. in psychology (with a minor in ethnic studies) at Bowling Green State University and my M.S. in clinical/counseling psychology at New Mexico Highlands University. Prior to pursuing my doctorate degree, I worked as an LPC (licensed professional counselor) for one year at the Bowling Green State University Counseling Center. Although I’ve worked with a wide range of individuals and presenting concerns, my general interest/specialties focus on anxiety related disorders and cultural awareness.
I have an eclectic approach to therapy and also work through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) lenses, which help us understand our thought patterns and their connections to our emotions and behaviors. I enjoy helping provide students with a space in which they can discover who they are emotionally, physically, and mentally while at the same time helping them work through any life stressors that they may have or are currently experiencing.
Outside of work, I love to relax by playing tennis, playing video games, and cooking!
