About Our Counseling Center

Amy Wine Counseling Center is a group counseling practice located in Cypress, Texas. We specialize in working with children, teens, adults and families to help you meet your daily challenges and lead a rich, more fulfilling life. Each of our counselors brings a unique set of strengths and extensive training to their practice and works with you to support you in getting from where you are to where you want to be.

At Amy Wine Counseling, we are committed to offering you the best counseling experience we can, while respecting and affirming your personal values, faith, spirituality, racial and ethnic background, sexual identity and orientation in a supportive, non-judgmental setting.

A brief review of our counselor’s bios will help you learn a bit about them as people, as well as their focus on individual, couples or family therapy and whether they work with children, teens or adults. We strive to make your counseling experience positive and progressive. Finding the right fit in your counselor is the first step on your journey.

At Amy Wine Counseling Center, we believe that every person can strive toward and reach their full potential. We help you get there by supporting you in:

  • Establishing and maintaining healthier relationships
  • Enhancing communication and understanding
  • Balancing power struggles in the family and between partners
  • Working through difficult emotions and traumatic experiences
  • Helping you lead a richer and more joyful life

Our counselors can help you navigate those times when life doesn’t turn out quite how you expected. We walk with you on your journey through anxiety, stress, sadness, grief, depression and all the other tough emotions that might come your way. In addition to traditional counseling, Amy Wine Counseling Center also offers ADHD evaluations, Speech and Language Services and specialize in the treatment and support of Autism Spectrum Disorders.

If you’re feeling stuck and overwhelmed the counselors at Amy Wine Counseling center offer a thoughtful and engaging outlet for you to move past the obstacles you may find yourself confronting and into a better place.Whether you have your own challenges, are concerned about your child or teen or need help in marriage or relationship, we can work with you to move toward greater peace and a more balanced life.

The counselors at Amy Wine Counseling Center have extensive training in different kinds of therapy. For the most part, we do what’s known as ‘talk therapy’, where we will sit with you as an individual, couple or family and discuss the issues at hand. With children and teens, we sometimes engage in more creative outlets, like play therapy and expressive arts.

Your therapy is your own and we encourage you to move at your own pace, guiding you in the direction you need to go, but not directing you or giving you advice. We help you reveal the tools and techniques that work best for you as an individual, couple or family. In a physically and emotionally comfortable environment, we help you realize your personal vision for your life and support you in your journey to health and happiness.

Just like you, I live in the real world. I make mistakes with my friends, my spouse, my children, and my extended family. It is what we do with our mistakes that defines who we are, and where our healing starts.

People are like constantly changing jigsaw puzzles. They have all these little pieces that go together to create a complete picture. Sometimes it’s difficult to see where the pieces fit. At other times, the pieces don’t seem to fit quite right, or even at all. Counseling is a safe, nonjudgmental place where you can re-arrange your personal puzzle pieces, putting them back together in whatever way works best for you. [Read more…]

Sarah Howard

I help clients reframe the challenges they are confronting and develop problem-solving strategies that support them in changing the thoughts, feelings and actions that are keeping them stuck.
Something else I focus on with clients, when it’s appropriate, is helping them understand how their spiritual life can help them making the changes they want. My background in Christian Counseling provides me with a unique perspective for those clients who wish to approach their issues and concerns through the lens of biblical teachings. [Read more…]

We are all able to pinpoint something in our lives that we want to change: we want to suffer less, laugh more, love more fully and avoid anxiety. When we realize that whatever it is we have been trying to do to get rid of that anxiety isn’t working, that’s when we start looking for other solutions. Perhaps this is the path you’re finding yourself on right now. [Read more…]

Have you ever gotten to a point in your life where things just aren’t going the way you would like them?

Maybe you are feeling down and do not know why. Maybe you are going through a difficult time with your partner and need help navigating those challenges.

Most people that engage in therapy are just ordinary people who are struggling with common, every day issues. There are times when we need someone to talk to who will truly listen without judgment. [Read more…]

Deciding to seek help is the first and often hardest step in the counseling process.
Finding a counselor that you or your child connects with can also be an intimidating and overwhelming

If you are checking out counselors in your area, you have already taken an important step in seeking help for yourself, your child, or a relationship.

Seeking counseling is the first step to making important changes in your life, but it can be an anxiety-provoking process. You may wonder what the counselor may think of you or ask you to do. I view counseling as a collaborative process in which I work with you to reach your goals .[Read more…]

Despite technological advances which have provided us more ways to connect with others than ever before, we are often still silent about our struggles. We do our best to keep it together – to be resilient and strong, forging ahead through life’s ups and downs.  However, sometimes we get trapped in our own heads, we struggle to connect with others, and we just feel a little “stuck.” These are things we all go through.

Life is not a simple thing, it is full of mystery, joy, pain, sadness, obstacles, and successes and people are no different. It is my philosophy that people are unique and we all have our own path on which we tread; however that path exists inside a world that is created by something outside ourselves. [Read more…]
