Mind Over Money Financial Coaching

Financial coaching strives to help students develop skills and behaviors they can improve upon independently over time.

Grad Coaching

Graduate programs, whether masters, professional, or Ph.D., will challenge you in ways that are very different from undergraduate college. Common challenges include undefined schedules and greater independence, or, alternatively, tight timelines to finish your program while job hunting or addressing other, non-academic needs. Your Academic Coach will engage you in an understanding conversation that elicits your own insights and builds on your strengths. We can help you build your new insights and strategies into habitual ways of thinking and choosing, resulting in a more rewarding and productive graduate experience.

Academic Coaching

Academic life at Stanford can be challenging. The pace, complexity, and volume of material encountered in the quarter system challenges students to learn more effectively and efficiently. Our academic coaches help you navigate these challenges by providing you with the tools to balance the many demands that are placed on you as a Stanford student. We work one-on-one with you to help you improve your academic strategies, suggest changes to your approach, find school/life balance, and provide encouragement as you implement new ways of learning.

Career Coaching at Stanford Career Education

We engage with students to help them design their career pathways, venture into new opportunities, and pursue their job search. Stanford Career Education guides students to make connections that will serve them on the path to meaningful work.

Pastoral Care at Office for Religious & Spiritual Life

The Office for Religious & Spiritual Life (ORSL) is available to provide pastoral/spiritual care to the Stanford community. Pastoral/spiritual care is a type of confidential care and counseling provided by spiritual and religious leaders. It involves non-judgmental and compassionate listening that allows people to share their joys, concerns, and hopes in the context of their full humanity, and for many, their spirituality or philosophy, with the goal of fostering a person’s spiritual and existential wellbeing. Pastoral care can offer support for topics including grief and loss, relationships (including romantic and non-romantic, family) vocational questions, meaning and purpose, stress, religious traditions and difference; ethical dilemmas, sexual/gender identity and religious upbringing in conflict.
