I have been a member of the Counselor Education Faculty at Chobanian and Avedisian School of Medicine for over 20 years. For the past 12 years I have served as Director of the Mental Health Counseling and Behavioral Medicine Program as well as an Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Graduate Medical Sciences. I am the current Chair-Elect of the faculty at Boston University. I am the past Chair of the American Mental Health Counseling Associations Professional Development Committee and past Chair of the APA Counsel on AIDS. I am an active clinician who primarily counsels gay men. My research interest has focused on HIV and serious mental disorders where I have led or been part of several federally funded projects. I am currently the Principal Investigator for an NIH R01 study for 2010-2015 examining Motivational Approaches for HIV prevention for mentally ill and homeless adults.

I received my B.A. in Sociology from the University of Florida in Gainesville FL, and my M.A. and doctoral degrees from the University of California, Santa Barbara, CA.
