A central aim of my mission is to share research and group trends with the communities who I study and work with. I present on a variety of topics typically focusing on counseling/mental health, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, or same-sex attracted identities, faith/spirituality, or some combination of the three. I currently reside in Memphis, Tennessee.

I am interested in continuing to share my knowledge and experience with others. If you or your group are interested in having me come to present, get in contact with me here.
