Ann Schroeder, LPC
My Mission: To honor the cultural diversity of each client and offer acceptance, compassion, and support in the counseling relationship. I provide an emotionally safe “listening space” for clients to reconnect with their inner strength, core values, and sense of purpose. I have trust in the counseling process and faith that clients can make positive changes in their lives and move toward their future with hope.
My Focus: I work with adults or couples to address any number of concerns in interpersonal relationship, anxiety, depression, life transition, grief, loss, trauma, caregiver burnout, geriatric, and career.
My experience: Prior to receiving my counseling degree, I worked in various management positions in the oil and gas industry. During that time, I most enjoyed mentoring team members and fostering healthy interpersonal working relationships. I have volunteered with various non-profit organizations, such as the Star of Hope’s Transitional Living Center, where I worked as a mentor to homeless women transitioning into the work force. I am a past president of the Women’s Interest Network, a former constituent group of the University of Houston Alumni Organization. I have also volunteered with Vantage Hospice, where I worked with caregivers and adults struggling with end-of-life concerns. I am a member of the American Counseling Association (ACA).
My Technique: I view the therapeutic relationship as a partnership, where trust is a key ingredient. As I work with my client to create the best possible counseling outcome, I will draw from several “well established” counseling theories and empirically supported protocols to “custom fit” a treatment plan to the unique needs of my client.
About Me: I am still happily married to my high school sweetheart, and we have one son and one precious granddaughter. My husband and I love to travel together and learn about diverse cultures. I have a passion for photography, dance, and life-long learning.
Education: Master of Arts in Counseling, Houston Baptist University; Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting, University of Houston/Central Campus; Gottman Couples Therapy Level I & II; Beck Institute training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for Anxiety; training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) SKILLS and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT); PATH Foundation Certification in Hypnosis and additional training from The American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH); and trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR).
