Jacob Crocker, M.A.

University of Houston Ph.D. Student

I am a first-year doctoral student in the Counseling Psychology program at the University of Houston. I was born in Sacramento, California, and raised in Plymouth, California. I earned my B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Multicultural Queer Studies and my M.A. in Academic Research in Psychology with and emphasis in Social Psychology at California Polytechnic University, Humboldt.


My research interests include minority stress, LGBTQ+ health outcomes, substance use, and the role of identity and community in treatment and intervention. I am also currently a research assistant for a U54 NIH funded grant project exploring the effects of minority stress over time on LGBTQ+ health outcomes via biomarkers. In my free time, I enjoy reading, running, visiting museums, and watching YouTube and Netflix.
