We are a collective of medical providers, mental health professionals, staff, students, and community leaders that represent a partnership between multiple campus departments including Vaden Health Center and Queer Student Resources. Feel free to reach out to us if you have questions about our current projects:
Centering and serving LGBTQIA+ communities has been my passion since I embarked on my own journey of identity exploration back in high school. We have come a long way since then but not far enough. My vision for Weiland is to create a welcoming and supportive environment for students to explore gender and sexuality and how these identities might intersect and interact with other identities, both privileged and marginalized. We aim to reach this this vision through offering mental health and medical services that are affirming across the spectrum identities; training new clinicians on how to provide these services; and also offering campus programming and education that is affirmative of a range of gender and sexual identities.
For 15 years, my clinical practice has revolved around creating brave(r) and safe(r) spaces that are equitable and deeply respectful of marginalized identities, initially at the high school level and then at the college level. My cultural upbringing is a huge part of what informs my commitment to community and social justice and is connected to my drive to be in service to others. I feel engaged in and committed to a kind of radical social work that honors and strives to create space for all voices and experiences, particularly the nuances and complexities of our lives as BGLT/queer folks. I am excited to bring compassion, transparency and intention to my work as part of the Weiland team and to collaborate across all areas of the Stanford community—students, staff, and the larger community—to try and create meaningful change that allows us all to be more of our authentic selves in all spaces.

I am honored to be a part of the Weiland team and connect with the Stanford community as both a queer femme of color and a social justice focused psychologist. Throughout my training and career, I have centered intersections of identity and experience, specifically race, gender, sexuality, and trauma. I look forward to changing services, systems, and beliefs as the needs of Stanford’s diverse communities and unique individuals continue to shift. Through collaborative partnerships across departments, communities, and campus roles, I hope to contribute to a Stanford community where students of all identities thrive.

As a genderqueer mental health provider, educator, and advocate, I could not be happier to be a part of the Weiland team. My background is in LGBTQ+ mental health, with a focus on stigma resilience and services for trans and non-binary folks. I recognize experiences of gender and sexuality vary from person-to-person and across cultures. As such, I strive to understood how multiple intersecting identities inform our ways of relating to ourselves, others, and our communities. It is a privilege to be in a position to support student wellbeing at Stanford and look forward to learning innovative ways to do so.
As a queer child of immigrants, I grew up learning that activism is as much a practice of nurturing our collective wellbeing as a struggle towards our collective liberation. I believe in honoring our capacity, having faith in our abundance, and grounding our love in community and chosen family. As a member of the Weiland team, I am committed to supporting you in your journey, affirming your truth, and growing together. If you’d like to talk, reach out anytime!
As a queer Vietnamese-American, I have struggled to find communities that can whole-heartedly accept me for who I am. And in that struggle, there have been times where I have been forced to ignore parts of my identity in order to try and fit into the neat, confines of our binary-oriented society. It is these experiences that inform the way I hope to support the LGBTQIA+ community at Stanford. Above all, I value an inclusive community that allows each person to explore their identity without fear of judgement. As a WHA, I will strive to build strong support systems and create opportunities for open and honest conversations about pursuing wellness while queer.
As Vaden Health Center’s Medical director, I am committed to maintaining an environment that welcomes Stanford’s diverse community. My involvement with the Weiland Health Initiative allows me to take an active role in refining our services, so we can provide care, support and education to students of all genders and sexual orientations.
The professional staff of Queer Student Resources are proud to act as directing partners with the Weiland Health Initiative.
