FROM THE COUNSELOR'S DESKMy name is Marissa DiFilippo, and I am your School Counselor at Downes Elementary. I am honored to serve you and your child! I am available to assist students with whatever type of need they may have - academic, social, emotional, behavioral, grief, etc.
- Short-term individual and group counseling
- Classroom lessons on social-emotional learning topics vital to a child's development
- Community resource information (including longer-term therapy services)

Parent or Guardian permission is required before students can participate in individual or small-group counseling. Parents and families can request information from me on a variety of topics regarding their child's development and functioning. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions, would like additional information, or would like to schedule a meeting with me.
