Meet In-Person, By Phone or Zoom!
The SWC offers wellness check-ins for undergraduate and graduate students that give you a chance to talk openly with a trained, non-judgmental listener about anything that might be going on in your life. Our team makes wellness check-ins available via Zoom, phone, or in-person (masked indoors or unmasked outside). Select your preference during the scheduling process!

Meet The Team
Hi, I'm Brian (he/him/his). I try to keep a low profile, considering myself to simply be a counselor who specializes in listening. However, I am occasionally pulled into the spotlight for my 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. I have spent the last decade fine tuning Dartmouth's comprehensive approach to managing and reducing high risk drinking, and have held licenses and certifications as a clinical mental health and substance abuse counselor for over 30 years.
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.
