Professional statement

Ana Maria Serrano is a Licensed Professional Counselor located in Pearland, TX. Ana Maria is passionate about helping individuals and couples become “unstuck” in their lives. Many of the clients that see Ana Maria feel unfulfilled in their lives, without motivation to make changes. Sometimes, this is the result of a mental health condition or a response to the after-effects of a traumatic experience. Other times, this occurs because of the impact that being of a minority race or identity has on everyday life. Ana Maria provides a compassionate, kind space for clients to talk about their feelings and to find the motivation they need to reach their goals.

Ana Maria’s approach to working with couples comes from The Gottman Method, a modality that focuses on bond-building and empathy in relationships. This is especially helpful in times of conflict or during major relationship transitions like marriage. Ana Maria helps couples and individuals alike identify and address the roadblocks that keep them from feeling joyful, fulfilled, or connected. She also brings mindfulness practices into her sessions, which boosts client self-awareness and is a useful tool for finding relaxation and introspection.

Ana Maria earned her Master’s degree from Long Island University Brooklyn. She is particularly interested in working with women of color, as she recognizes the unique life experience that comes with such an identity. She offers clients a transformative experience where they’ll leave therapy feeling inspired to reach their goals.
