Gerilyn A. Suschke, MA, NCC, LPC, ACS Clinical Director
New Jersey native, Gerilyn Suschke, MA, NCC, LPC, ACS, is a 23-year veteran working in addiction and mental health treatment. She holds a Master's Degree in Counseling and Personnel Services, a Bachelors in Sociology/Criminal Justice and is a member of the American Counseling Association and the Association for Counselor Education and Supervision.
Before completing her Master's Degree in 1999, she worked in Case Management in Allentown, PA for the Boys and Girls Clubs. She saw how the children of substance and alcohol users were affected every day by the disease in so many aspects of their lives. Witnessing the destruction these children go through, she knew she wanted to dedicate her career to helping people recover from their substance and alcohol use.
Gerilyn has developed several training programs including Treatment Planning, Documentation for Clinical Mental Health, and Working with Difficult Client Populations. As an expert in these topics, she provides unparalleled support, guidance, and encouragement to the clinical staff of The Counseling Center, ensuring that each client is receiving the treatment needed to recover.
Beth Frankel, LAC, Counselor
Counselor Beth Frankel, LAC, has held numerous volunteer positions for substance use and mental health counseling including a job in India for a nonprofit humanitarian organization. While in India she had the privilege of offering free counseling services to adults and adolescents who had neither the access nor resources to receive mental health and substance use counseling
As a counselor, she conducts group sessions and does case management, but where she thrives is in a client’s individual session. Her areas of concentration are more diverse than just addictions themselves; she uncovers the root underlying their substance and alcohol use. Beth incorporates many co-occurring issues such as trauma, depression, anxiety, marital/family conflict and spiritual matters as part of her treatment plan.
After losing friends to substance use, both through death and through their isolation, she wanted to give back and developed an ability to see the best in people even when they are unable to see it within themselves. With substance use becoming an increasingly prevalent problem in New Jersey, Beth is grateful for the chance to help prevent others from succumbing to the disease and get them on the right track for recovery.
