Ann Schroeder, LPC Intern
Supervisor: Roxy Riefkohl-Siegrist, Ph.D., LPC-S
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 the area of interpersonal relationship, life transition, grief, loss, trauma, caregiver burnout, geriatric, anxiety, depression, 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 currently volunteer with Vantage Hospice, where I work with caregivers and adults struggling with end-of-life concerns. I also volunteer at Bo’s Place, where I facilitate bereavement support groups for adults. I am a student member of the American Counseling Association, the Association for Specialists in Group Work, and the Fort Bend Counseling Association.
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 precious10-year-old 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 CBT Training (currently in progress).
