CHRISTINE

My therapist was not what I expected at all, in the best way possible.  I didn't get some 'know it all' doctor that spewed generic textbook knowledge.  I got an actual human being that I was able to relate to; he understood and listened to what I had to say.  He helped me find different methods to calm myself down and productively process my emotions.  Thanks to my therapist and Turning Point I was able to pull myself out of the seemingly inescapable rut I was in and I was able to take ahold of my life again."  

HOWARD

"One of the finest examples of complete mental health care in Broward County. From a staff that really cares and sees the person as a whole.  If you need help, or just need to talk to someone, this is the place for you to go to. From the friendly front office personnel, to the most caring counselors and therapists out there, look no further."  -  Howard

ALEX

"I have been going to Turning Point for a few years now.  I had gone to plenty of other therapists before so I was feeling a bit jaded about starting again but decided to give Turning Point a chance since I hadn't gone there before.   The first therapist that I was paired with was Noah Goldberg, and I knew immediately that there was a difference in the therapeutic approach.   Noah was knowledgeable but also personable.  He became my favorite therapist and I felt comfortable opening up to him.   I felt a lot of more progress after working with Noah and working with Turning Point than I had before. I highly recommend this place "
