Cypress Family Guidance Couseling
This place is absolutely terrible. I followed all of their instructions on their website and still got no where. I was already anxious to make this appointment and have really struggled lately. The poor quality of service just adds insult to injury. After muddling through the confusion instructions on the website, I called my insurance, paid the $3 fee to access the patient portal and filled out the information requested and scheduled an appointment. I was so proud of myself and felt good. That evening I received the new patient packet which was very confusing to fill out and nothing was explained in terms of using the electronic signature. I asked a friend to help and messaged the counselor back in hopes to get more information because scouring the website gave zero results. I wouldn't have asked if I had found my answer on the website. I received a message basically telling me that the information I needed was on the website and another message mentioning that although in network, they may not be able to help me because of one thing or another that I did not understand. Fast forward to a day later and I received a request for more information regarding the message they sent about the insurance information. You'd think a business, especially one for mental health services, would have better etiquette and more compassion. None of my questions were answered. Because I was so desperate I even asked friends to help. They, as well, tried to call to no avail and were sent to voicemail 4 times. Along with this, they state that the office doesn't even listen to their voicemail messages. Why even set one up in that case? Honestly one of the worst experiences I have ever had and if I were someone needing mental health services, I would NOT waste my time on this place.However, I am thoroughly surprised that after messaging the online portal and cancelling my appointment, I finally received communication and it seems things are getting worked out.

Government assistance is government assistance, you guys. What are we to do BUT get a job! GET A JOB so that you do not have to deal with these people in ANY way! In my opinion, the government really doesn't want to have to issue out money to anybody, so they make it difficult. I agree with them in a way! Nobody is given handouts, but at the same token stuff happens in life to people; therefore, people need the help. At least help exists. If you get denied look for other alternatives. The government will not deny you for no reason. I mainly wish that the government's employees were all on the same page via information because unfortunately, they are not. Also, I wish that the government's employees had BETTER communication! In other words, it may help to give a little heads up to look out for something that we are going to receive in the mail, especially if we have to respond to it by a certain DATE! THIS HELPS!!!!

Peter Cousins PhD ABPP
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Cousins. I saw him for about a year and I found him to be very knowledgable and insightful. Dr. Cousins helped me with anxiety, depression, and childhood trauma. He had a way of explaining things to me in a way I could understand. What I liked most about his style were the practical exercises he recommended, especially for dealing with anxiety on a daily basis. I also appreciated his relaxed, open, and nonjudgmental attitude. It was clear that his ultimate motivation was helping me become more centered, whole, and alive. I definitely made huge progress while seeing Dr. Cousins. If I still lived in Houston, he would definitely still be my therapist. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a good psychologist.

Harris County Assessor And Collector of Taxes
If you don't want to stand in line long, and you want agents who will treat you with kindness and show patience when you need additional information, the Cypresswood Branch of the Harris County tax collector is where you should go. I was in and out in less than 15 minutes! Earlier in the day, I went to the Tomball branch and will not go back. I was in line for half an hour, then found out the people in front of me had been there for over 2 hours. They still had at least 9 people in front of them, which meant I had 15 people in front of me! The line didn't move the entire time I was there. Oh, and there was only one agent servicing because at 11:00, two others had gone to lunch.

Psychic Readings & Healing
wow, tried the others listed above this one and it was a total waste of money. Realized later they were paid ads and most dont even have reviews. I highly advise to go with the ones with reviews when choosing . This reading was amazing. She is honest, caring and very wise. She told me what she saw in the cards and also got info from my guides, higher self or whatever on what i need to do . Really constructive and practical help !

There comes a time in a person's life when a decision needs to be made regarding one's relationship. The decision to work with Ms Granado definitely was overwhelmingly insightful. To be able to visualize what can be, with the assistance of a professional, is well worth the time required to find a conclusion. I 100% recommend Ms Granado for families, men, women and couples (children as well).
Tips & Advices
Group counseling is when one or more counselors lead a group discussion, usually between five and 15 people. The group may focus on a shared experience or situation, and provide support and encouragement to the other attendees.
Each state defines its own requirements for what licenses and education are needed to be a counselor. It's common for counselors to have a bachelor's degree in psychology or a similar field, as well as a master's degree. After that, counselors should obtain their state license, and can move on to achieving other licenses like the:
  • National Certified Counselor (NCC) license
  • Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) license
  • Master Addictions Counselor (MAC) license
  • Forensic Health Evaluators (FHE) license
  • Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) license
  • Certified Family Therapist (CFT) license
This all depends on the patient's goals and circumstances. Some people are happy with their results after just a few sessions; others continue to meet with their counselors for years. There is no right or wrong length of time to go to counseling.
Anyone can benefit from counseling services. Counseling can help you gain greater insight into yourself; deal with feelings of sadness, worry, depression or anxiety; as well as work out relationship problems, trauma or addiction. Not every type of counseling service works with every person.
Yes. Except in very specific situations, a counselor will never repeat conversations from a counseling session. Situations where information from sessions might be shared include:
  • If the counselor believes the patient might harm him or herself, or someone else.
  • If the counselor wants to get a second opinion on the patient's treatment. If this is the case, the counselor should seek the patient's written permission before consulting another professional.
