Mental Health

Hello SHE Family, my name is Nicol Bessette and this is my 19th year as a school psychologist.  I will be at SHE on Wednesdays this school year.  I will be supporting students with their social and emotional learning.  I will also collaborate with staff to help support students with their behavior, social, and emotional needs. 



        My name is Stephanie Campbell (previously Stephanie Zundel) and I am
the school counselor at Soaring Hawk Elementary School. As a school
counselor, I have many roles. I focus on three main areas with the
students: academic support, social-emotional well-being, and
college/career readiness. The mission of the Soaring Hawk School
Counseling program is to provide a proactive, comprehensive program
that supports all students academically while focusing on their
social-emotional well-being. This is accomplished through a
partnership with students, families, school personnel, and community
members. The SHE School Counseling program’s vision is to empower all
students to reach their full potential while providing a safe,
supportive environment.
As the school counselor, I will be individually counseling students,
leading small groups on important topics, leading classroom guidance
lessons to teach important life skills, supporting students with
disabilities with their 504/IEP/support plans/teams, leading
parent/staff workshops, advocating for students, and much more. If
there are any specific needs your children have that you would like me
to focus on please send me an email or give me a phone call. My email
address is [email protected] and my phone number is 303-387-5880.

P.S.: Yes, I am blind and I have the cutest guide dog ever named
Marley. When her harness is on, we do not talk to her or pet her
because she is working. When her harness is off, you are free to love
on her as much as you want because she is a pet. Also, ask any
questions you have about my blindness, my guide dog, how I do things,
etc. Encourage your children to ask any questions they may have as
well. I will not get offended. No questions are ever stupid.
