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 helped clients re-connect more deeply with others and themselves. I focus on what makes you unique and help you use your own strengths to thrive.

My areas of interest are:

  • Substance Abuse/Addictions
  • Relationship Concerns
  • Low-Self Esteem
  • Stress/Life Transitions

I 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.

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

  • Aetna
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield (all plans)
  • Cigna
  • Medicare
  • Tricare
  • United Healthcare

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.

If you have questions or are ready to begin counseling, contact us today. We accept a variety of insurance plans and our friendly administrative staff will get you scheduled with the best clinician for your goals.  Don’t continue to feel alone in your struggles, we are here to help.


With their permission, here are some experiences of former clients…

Fred seems like a good fit for me. Fred called me before my session so that I could ask some questions before my first consultation which made me feel comfortable when I had my first session. I am looking forward to working with Fred.
