Meet the Counselors
Annette King McHan, LPC-S
I am a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a sister, an aunt, a cousin, a church member, a club member etc. My point is that I live and learn just as everyone else. I am a lifetime student and feel that I embrace life in a positive fashion. We all face heartache and joy. We have very few choices as to what circumstances come to us in life, we do however have choices as to how we respond to those circumstances. Another aspect of counseling is teaching my clients how to respond in productive manners.
I counsel individuals and families. I see adults and children. As a small community counselor, I see most issues that are presented in counseling. My specialty is counseling for divorce recovery with children and adults. I feel this gives me a true passion for marriage counseling as well.
Counseling is a process of change. My position is to facilitate that change by incorporating myself into the issues through my clients painting a picture of their life.
Laura McHan Doss, MA, ALC, NCC
I am an extroverted friend to all, an empathic lover of all things living, a dedicted wife and mother, and I am an associate licensed counselor, under supervision to obtain full professional licensure in Alabama. I am also a Nationally Certified Counselor. I obtained a bachelors in science in modern languages and classics from the University of Alabama in 2011, and a Masters of Arts in Mental Health Counseling from Adams State University in 2017.
I have lived and studied all over the United States and Europe, where I have mentored students, counseled children on the Autism spectrum, as well as their parents, and worked with kids and adults of all ages with a variety of past traumas, marital stress, anxiety, depression, and many other illnesses.
My work with individuals, couples, and families has taught me the value of the therapeutic relationship. Through this relationship, my approach to counseling is to help clients to find their inner strength to heal, grow, and flourish as holistic human beings.
