About the Presenter:

Marla Zometsky has been a clinician with the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board (CSB) for 11 years. She is currently the Manager of the CSB’s Wellness, Health Promotion & Prevention program.

 

In 2015 lead the implementation of the Turning Point program, a Coordinated Specialty Care program for individuals between 16-25 years of age who have experienced the onset of psychosis. During this time, the program was selected to be included in a SAMSHA evaluation study on how CSC programs increase access to essential services and improve client outcomes. Ms. Zometsky previously served as a senior clinician with the CSB’s Intensive Case Management team, supporting homeless adults with serious mental illness. In addition, she has experience working in a residential substance abuse program for adolescent males, providing services through a school-based mental health program and facilitating cultural-adjustment workshops for immigrants and refugees. She is a CSB facilitator for Mental Health First Aid and represents the CSB on the Trauma-Informed Community Network. 

 

Ms. Zometsky is a Licensed Professional Counselor and a certified substance abuse counselor. She earned a Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Counseling and Development from George Mason University and a Master of Public Health (MPH) from George Washington University. She also completed a certificate from the Harvard Program in Refugee Trauma, Global Mental Health: Trauma and Recovery.

 

Before entering the mental health field, she worked as a U.S. Senate staff member and later as a program officer with a nonprofit where supported good governance programs in West Africa.

 

 

Andrea Borrelli, NCC, LMHP-R, is a resident in counseling with a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Marymount University. She has been working in the field of counseling for three years with experience working with youth and families, substance use, trauma, and early-intervention for psychosis. Andrea recently joined the Fairfax County Youth and Family team as a Senior Clinician after coming from Turning Point, where she acted as a clinician and case manager for 16-25 year olds experiencing their first episode of psychosis. During her time with Turning Point, Andrea worked closely with the Coordinated Specialty Care team to provide direct support to individuals and families in an individual therapy, family therapy, group, and, at times, community-based setting.
