The SWC offers wellness check-ins to give you a chance to talk openly with a trained, non-judgmental listener about anything that might be going on in your life. Our graduate student coaches provide co-facilitated check-in sessions with members of the SWC staff for undergraduate and graduate students at Dartmouth. Our staff members also provide wellness check-ins via Zoom, phone, or in-person (masked indoors or unmasked outside). Select your preference during the scheduling process!

Meet The Team
Hi! I'm Charlie (he/him/his) and I'm a 4th year Computer Science PhD student. I research visible light communication and sensing, which basically means I get to play with lasers every day. I'm originally from Buffalo, NY, but went to college at Fordham University in the Bronx. Some fun facts about me: I love to ski, watch the Bruins (and sometimes the Sabres), and I recently adopted two kittens! I'm really excited to be a wellness coach, and help students feel heard, feel confident, and feel cared for.
Hi, I'm William! (He/him/his). I am currently a fourth year medical student at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth. I'm originally from sunny Southern California, so you can bet the seasons took a bit of getting used to. I am applying to psychiatry residency at the moment, and I am most interested in the realms of addiction psychiatry and student mental health. In addition to being a member of the Wellness Check-In team, I am also a BASICS (Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students) graduate student intern. In my free time, I enjoy hiking local trails, playing basketball, watching TV, and playing videogames. As a wellness coach, my goal is to help create a supportive and welcoming environment, making sure students feel heard and cared for."
Hello, I'm Jane (she/her/hers)! I'm from South Korea and currently a second-year Psychological and Brain Sciences Ph.D. student. I'm fascinated by narrative stories for both my research and life, how we understand each other's stories and develop our own. I have been moving around a lot myself (went through 10 campuses) and had adventures in academic and personal environmental changes. One of my goals as a coach is to make sure you don't feel alone in your situation. We will walk through this together.
Hello, my name is Erin (she/her/hers). I am a 7th-year graduate student pursuing my Ph.D. in Chemistry. My research is focused on understanding how healthy cells degrade protein aggregates and prevent the onset of neurodegenerative diseases. I am from a small town in southern Minnesota and attended Saint Mary's College in South Bend, Indiana. When I am not in the lab, I enjoy hiking in the White Mountains, listening to podcasts, testing recipes, and finding the best coffee shops and microbreweries. As a wellness coach, I aim to provide a safe and welcoming environment that helps students feel heard and supported.
Brian tries to keep a low profile considering himself to simply be a counselor who specializes in listening. However, he is occasionally pulled into the spotlight for his significant work in higher education prevention, student wellness and reducing high risk drinking with efficient and effective ways of implementing evidence base programs such as BASICS. He has spent the last decade fine tuning Dartmouth's comprehensive approach to managing and reducing high risk drinking. For over 30 years Brian has held licenses and certifications as a clinical mental health and substance abuse counselor.
Hi! I'm Todd (he/him) and I am a member of the wellbeing team at the Student Wellness Center. I've worked in higher education for about 10 years, designing programs and services that promote student mental health and wellbeing. For me, wellness check-ins are a space where you can talk openly about the things that matter most to you and receive consistent encouragement and support.
LB has been working in the wellbeing field for nine years where she has served a wide range of populations including healthcare employees, veterans, youth, and young adults. She completed her undergraduate degree with a focus on the intersection of mindfulness and holistic mental health counseling at Union Institute & University. LB has also completed a yoga teacher certification through YogaDharma, a wellness coach certification through the National Institute of Whole Health, and just recently completed her Koru Mindfulness training. Her personal mindfulness practice combines with her education and training to provide her with a foundation of expertise and authenticity for her work with others. Currently, LB serves as the Wellbeing + Mindfulness Specialist of the Dartmouth College Student Wellness Center where she is developing programs that enhance students' capacities for mindfulness while also broadly supporting the holistic wellbeing of all students.
Please note: Wellness check-ins are not intended as a substitute for therapy or pastoral counseling. Our staff members and graduate cohort offer check-ins as a non-clinical, private resource, which means we cannot provide the same level of confidentiality as our colleagues at the Counseling Center or the Tucker Center. Please refer to our About Wellness Check-ins page for more information about our work as well as other support service options on campus to choose the resource that is right for you.
