Licensed Professional Counselor, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor
Louva attended Southern Methodist University where she received a bachelor degree in English, Spanish and Secondary Education. Her first career was that of a stay-at-home-mom for her family of eight children. As that career was winding down she returned to school at West Texas A & M University to complete a master’s degree in English and Spanish.
In 1971 as a voluntary G.E.D. and ESL instructor for the Cactus community, she also volunteered to help write the grant that resulted in a Title XX Day Care Center for Cactus. As pro-temp director for that day care, she became involved with the families, their culture and the many social needs of that Hispanic community. It was this experience that spawned her interest in becoming a counselor.
During the 1980’s Louva returned to WTAMU to pursue a graduate degree in Psychology and Mental Health Counseling. During this time she worked at the Palo Duro Hospital Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Center, and later the Dual Diagnosis Treatment Center. There she did her first counseling as a Certified and Alcohol Abuse Counselor, and after receiving her LPC, LMFT and LCDC licenses did her first work with psychiatric patients.
Louva joined the staff of Family Support Services in 1996, where her varied background met an even more variable clientele. Louva provides individual, family and group counseling.The ages of clients served can extend across the life span. Here Louva takes delight in being able to work with clients in all of the areas of her training and experience and to be able to do this bilingually in the Spanish language.
