Director of Practicum Training and Associate Professor Gary Howell, Psy.D. of the Florida School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University was named President-Elect of American Psychological Association’s (APA) Division 44, the Society for the Psychology of Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity.

Howell is an early career psychologist who has dedicated himself to advocacy and support of the LGBT community for over 20 years. As an undergraduate student, he found himself on the front lines of HIV prevention work where he provided community workshops and volunteered at an AIDS service organization spanning 7,000 square miles in rural Texas.

For the past several years, he has worked to create a safe space in Tampa for LGBT individuals in need of mental health services. Over the past year, he has made a tremendous mark in his work with the transgender community by providing free group therapy to transgender and gender diverse youth as well as their parents. 

As an openly gay psychologist, educator, and LGBT expert, Howell strives to shed light on bullying, suicide, and homophobia when possible. He is working to expand his practice, the Center for Psychological Growth, in Tampa to make an even larger presence in the LGBT community and has begun the final stages of setting up a non-profit, Institute for LGBT Health and Wellbeing, with an emphasis on training, education, and LGBT research regarding health, wellness, and healthcare disparities. The ultimate goal of the nonprofit is to create a summer retreat or camp for LGBT youth and serve as a conduit for social change.

He has used his role as an associate professor and Director of Practicum Training at the Florida School of Professional Psychology to create LGBT courses for doctoral students and develop clinical training opportunities for doctoral students to receive competency training with LGBT patients.
