Turning Point Counseling, headquartered in Orange County, has opened one of its 24 satellite offices in Ventura. Pastor Jim Duran and The River Community Church has partnered with Turning Point Counseling to provide space for local resident, Barbara Suggs, M.A., MFT Intern, who provides services to the community in both Spanish and English under the supervision of Turning Point Counseling personnel.
While working at The Kingdom Center (now the City Center) on the start-up team and as mentor coordinator, she felt the need to return to school and pursue a graduate degree in Clinical Psychology through Azusa Pacific University. Early this year she became affiliated with Turning Point Counseling, having the desire to work both within the churches and the community at large.
Barbara works with individuals, couples, and families, to bring hope and healing to the hurting, especially in the areas of relationships, communication, anxiety and depression, grief and loss. She has office hours available at The River Church office, 859 E. Santa Clara, afternoons and evenings by appointment. She can be reached at 800-998-6329, Ext. 321 and leaving a message. Your call will be returned within one business day. An affordable sliding scale fee is available.
This is not the well- known local Turning Point Foundation of Ventura.
