I am Felica Horne, and I am the School Counselor at Merrifield Elementary.  This is my 17th year in the field of education. My greatest joy in life is impacting lives by helping our students believe in themselves and find their strengths.

As the school counselor, I will provide a variety of services to our students, teachers, and support staff.  These services include but are not limited to: Individual Counseling, Small Group Counseling, Guidance Lessons, Teacher/Parent Consultations, and Community Resource Referrals.  

I look forward to partnering with you to continue Merrifield Excellence!
