Page 8 THE VILLADOM TIMES II • August 5, 2009 Business Marinaro to head partial care at West Bergen Donna Marinaro, MSW, has been named director of West Bergen Mental Healthcare’s Partial Care Program. West Bergen is a non-profit agency providing counseling and psychiatric services for individuals and families in need. In announcing the new appointment, Michael J. Tozzoli, West Bergen’s CEO, said, “All of us at West Bergen are so pleased to have an individual of Ms. Marinaro’s knowledge and experience join our team. She brings to the agency more than 30 years of expertise.” Prior to beginning her career with West Bergen, Marinaro served as program director for Emergency Services in Lawrence, Massachusetts. As program director, she was responsible for the oversight of 30 emergency services crisis clinicians and providing administrative collaboration with hospitals, the Department of Mental Health and other state departments. She has also held managerial positions with social service agencies including La Bella Cucina di Amici in New Hampshire, and Community Harvest in Maine, which she co-founded and served as president of the board for six years. A clinician, Marinaro served as a therapist with a number of individual and family counseling service centers in New Hampshire and Maine. The Structured Day Treatment Program Marinaro will be heading offers a broad range of mental health and support services tailored to the needs of individuals requiring a more intensive level of care. “I am looking forward to working with the professional staff at West Bergen so we may increase attendance and community awareness for the Partial Care Program. The program consists of a multidisciplinary team, which focuses on wellness and recovery for all individuals through case management and group work to include independent skill building, co-occurring disorder support, pre-vocational skill development, substance abuse therapy and education, medication education and counseling, laughter, music, and art therapy, and so much more,” Marinaro said. “I have introduced the Young Adult Partial Care Track for young adults ages 18-35,” she added. YADT is offered on Wednesday and Thursday from 2 to 5 p.m., and the program offers an individualized recovery plan to meet the needs of young adults with busy social, work and school schedules. “I am so appreciative to work along with a highly motivated, compassionate and talented clinical team.” Originally from New Jersey, Marinaro began her career as an activities coordinator at Saint Joseph’s Medical Center in Paterson. Marinaro earned her undergraduate degree in art education from Montclair State University and her master of social work degree from the University of New England in Maine. Established in 1963 as a child guidance clinic, today West Bergen provides comprehensive services for all age groups with various levels of need. West Bergen offers services at three convenient locations: West Bergen Mental Healthcare, 120 Chestnut Street, Ridgewood, (201) 444-3550; West Bergen Center for Children and Youth, One Cherry Lane, Ramsey, (201) 9341160; and West Bergen Counseling Group, 3 Post Road, Oakland, (201) 651-1900. R&S helps educate local campers R&S Landscaping recently gave lessons on water conservation and the importance of plantings and clean air to campers at Ridgewood Day Camp in Ridgewood. “We want the kids to know that Earth Day is more than just one day in April,” said Landscape Designer Karen Codd, “The earth is our home, and its precious resources are limited. We want to teach the kids to conserve and protect those resources now so they can take care of the water and air when they grow up and have kids of their own.” Through a series of scale models, students learned how water travels through neighborhoods and towns and eventually penetrates the earth’s soil. Lauren Trionfo, an associate of R&S Landscaping, taught the children how to read a water meter and how to check for leaks in their own homes. Codd discussed the important roles of trees and plants as our greatest oxygen resource. The children were each sent home with a marigold to plant. One group was allowed to add their plantings along the walkway into The Stable next to the Graydon Pool. “It is our hope,” Codd explained, “that these boys and girls will realize the positive impact they can make to their home planet by experiencing planting firsthand.” R&S Landscaping is located at 27 Greenwood Avenue in Midland Park. Eco Earth Design, a division of R&S, collaborates with architects, building managers, contractors, engineers, green consultants and property owners to create an integrated approach to landscape development.
