Tarik Goulbourne

UH PhD Student

I am an incoming first-year 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 in Tallahassee, FL. My research interests include the influence of cultural values on trauma resilience and well-being in individuals with intersecting identities, specifically ethnic and sexual minorities. In my free time, I enjoy listening to audiobooks, trying new recipes, working out, and spending time with friends and family.
