Tarik Goulbourne, M.S.

University of Houston Ph.D. Student


I am a doctoral student in the Counseling Psychology program at the University of Houston (UH). I am originally from Florida. I earned my B.S. in Biology with a minor in psychology and my M.S. in Community Psychology from Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU). While at FAMU, I worked as a graduate assistant for a professor researching data dissemination and the psychological implications of social media on individuals of African descent. Prior to beginning graduate study at UH, I worked as an Admission and Discharge Coordinator for an inpatient crisis stabilization unit at the Apalachee Center Inc. in Tallahassee, FL. My research interests focus on factors affecting LGBTQ+ health, and I am particularly interested in substance use and the experiences of those with intersecting marginalized identities. In my free time, I enjoy listening to audiobooks, watching tv shows and movies, going to community events in the park, exploring the city, working out, and spending time with friends and family.
