Welcome to the Swanson Interventionist, Mental, Health, and ESL team!

We work collaboratively with students, parents, and teachers to help every child reach their highest potential.

Stephanie Becker

I'm excited to be apart of the Swanson team! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker trained to provide mental health counseling. I work at Swanson, but am employed by Jefferson County Mental Health (JCMH). My goal is to help students and families become happier and healthier throughout the year. I can help children learn healthy coping skills, reduce mental health symptoms (anxiety, depression, etc.), and increase their self-esteem.

I have two dogs, Gus and Lola. I was born and raised in Arizona and I love to be outside as much as possible.
