Frederick V. Suter, LISW, ACSW

Licensed Independent Social Worker (with advanced study in addictions counseling)

Do you want to better understand your emotions and relationship issues?

Do you want to deepen your life experience?

Do you have a problem with alcohol and drugs but can’t imagine living without them?

I will help you gain greater control over your emotions so you can move away from being reactive and uncover your true self. For over 40 years I have counseled clients struggling in a wide variety of areas, including substance abuse and other addictions, difficulty in relationships and low self esteem, and helped them re-connect more deeply with others and themselves. I will focus on what makes you unique and help you use your strengths to thrive.

I also have extensive experience and advanced training in working with addictions of all types…wherever you are in the recovery process, I will support you in healing and getting your life back.

Previous clients have described me as knowledgeable, compassionate and accepting.

I have a Bachelor’s degree from Fordham University at Lincoln Center and a Master’s degree from Hunter College, City University of NY, in Social Work.

In addition to self-pay clients, I am a provider for:

  • Medicaid (most types)
  • Blue Cross/Blue Shield (all types)
  • Tricare
  • Medicare
