Stanford students seeking additional support for maintaining a healthy and balanced life can now consult with three new student support specialists.

MAIJA CRUZ, ’12, BRIANNA GRIFFIN, ’11, and SANNE LIM will assist students with managing stress and anxiety, help guide them through life transitions and advise them with their interpersonal concerns through coaching sessions, programs and events, and discussion groups and workshops.

Cruz will serve the community centers and ethnic theme dorms. Her work will focus on holistic wellness, mental health, resiliency, cultural and positive psychology, intersectionality, supporting those who feel “othered” and encouraging the indigenization of mindsets and processes.

Griffin will provide coaching to undergraduate students. Her specialties and interests include goal-oriented coaching, reclaiming one’s values, self-compassion, resilience, stress and anxiety, relationships and navigating cultural differences.

Sanne Lim will work with the Graduate Life Office and Well-Being at Stanford to provide graduate students with ongoing and developmental coaching. She will coach students in such areas as personal and professional development, handling stress, loss and grief, communication skills, cultural adjustments and relationships.
