Annell grew up in West Texas and attended five different colleges/universities while raising a family. After her divorce, she returned to college in her 40's and got a Bachelor's Degree in History. She intended to teach at a junior college, but took an introduction to counseling class and was hooked. She earned a Master's Degree in Counseling and became a Licensed Professional Counselor. She has been with us since 2003. Her specialty is mature women, mostly dual diagnosis. Annell also teaches the Survivor’s focus group for women due to her training in domestic violence and sexual assault. She volunteers with the local hospital’s No One Dies Alone program.
