SWC Wellness Check-ins

Meet In-Person, Phone or Zoom!

Members of our SWC team are offering wellness check-ins to give you immediate opportunities to talk with a trained, non-judgmental listener. If you're struggling with motivation, relationships, worries, or anything else, we are here. If you're just looking for an opportunity to talk about life, we're here for you too. Our goal is to support you in navigating any transitions you may be facing and to empower you to more fully take ownership of yourself and your life.

Our graduate student coaches have participated in wellness coach training and provide co-facilitated check-in sessions with members of the SWC staff for both graduate and undergraduate Dartmouth students. These sessions are available via Zoom or by phone. Several SWC staff members also provide wellness check-ins via Zoom, phone, or in-person. You can choose the option you prefer as part of the scheduling process.

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.

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.

 

 

Todd has held many professional roles ranging from full time volunteer work in West Africa to executive coaching for Fortune 5 companies. For the past 10 years, Todd has focused on higher education, with a primary focus on developing innovative approaches to promoting college student mental health and wellbeing. He completed his Masters of Clinical Mental Health Counseling and a Doctorate in Counselor Education at The Ohio State University, and has applied that education in both clinical and public health settings.

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.
