LAGPA Members Moving On Up!
Spring is the time of year when we celebrate newness and joyous life changes. Graduations provide a wonderful opportunity for us to reflect upon these changes. Several LAGPA members have graduated from their academic programs this past year, and we would like to acknowledge the  success of their work and congratulate them on their jobs well done. If we have missed your important occasion, let us know and we will print an announcement in the next edition of Progress Notes.

Jon Moore Ubick, PsyD
Dr. Ubick has been a member of LAGPA for several years now, and is already helping produce next year's conference. Graduating from California School of Professional Psychology, Los Angeles (now Alliant University), his dissertation is titled, Intervention with the Adolescent Male whose Mother is living with Cancer. This project is a comprehensive literature review and critique. He also offers recommendations from a gender and developmental-age syntonic perspective.  Jon is currently working in private practice and accepting referrals. Please email him for more information, or to offer your personal congratulations at uzyrndl@aol.com.

Adam Jacobson, MSW
Mr. Jacobson has been a LAGPA member for several years while attending the aggressive UCLA School of Social Welfare. However, his busy schedule did not deter him from learning more about the community he serves in, and he has actively attended LAGPA's academic forums. Adam interned at the Wright Institute, Los Angeles, and currently works at the Didi Hirsch Community Mental Health Center.

Daniel Lane Gould, MSW
Mr. Gould, who describes himself as the "average nice boy next door", has been a strong voice for transgender education in LAGPA and moderated a thought provoking program at our June conference. He graduated from UCLA, and is currently in private practice, earning his hours towards licensure. Already published in professional and popular journals, he has a promising future as a psychotherapist and activist.

Scott Gregory Shelp, RN, BA
Mr. Shelp graduated from California State University, Northridge, with a BA  in Psychology. He has worked for the past twelve years as a nurse in St. Louis, MO, and in the Southland at Cedars Sinai Medical Center and Providence St. Joseph's Medical Center. He has also been named the Executive Director of the CSUN help line, a service to assist callers with crises and any life change issues. Mr. Shelp has been published in the Journal of Homosexuality for his research on "gaydar." A man of many talents, he also designs successful web pages that "pop" and catch the viewers attention, Scott is currently working on an MA in Psychology at CSUN.

Other persons who have graduated with degrees in Psychology and serve the GLBT community are:
  Patrick Justin Henry, PhD (UCLA)
