Louise Kotel, LSW
Although just starting my career at Alta, I have had experience with Alta when it was D&E Counseling Center. I assisted with Camp Challenge for three summers (2004-2006) along with completing my Graduate internship at D&E from 2006-2007. My Social Work career started in 2005, with my first employment at a domestic violence/rape crisis shelter while studying for my undergraduate degree in Social Work at Bowling Green State University. I completed my Masters in Social Work at the University of Akron. Upon graduating from the University of Akron, I started a job in Akron working with the DD population. I was working in group homes and workshops proving behavioral management and counseling; along with providing outpatient counseling at the office. After seven years in Akron, I accepted a job closer to home and became an in home therapist in Columbiana County. I worked with foster kids, high risk youth, parents and high risk adults to provide intensive home therapy.
