My name is Jenny Istre. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I am from Lafayette, Louisiana and am proud to be a Ragin Cajun. I attended UNO and received my Master’s Degree in Counselor Education in 2004 and began my journey to becoming a professional counselor. I enjoyed my time living in New Orleans and unexpectedly moved back home to Lafayette after being affected by Hurricane Katrina. Since being home I have had great experience working with people of all ages. I have experience in the juvenile court system working with At-Risk Youth and really enjoy being a positive seed in their life journeys. I have great experience in working with couples find peace in their relationships and families find middle ground. In my personal life I live with my husband and two daughters. My daughters are 12 and 1. After struggling with fertility issues, God blessed us with our second daughter. Throughout my own life journey I have struggled with great difficulties and will always share what has helped me through. Self-care is extremely important in everyone’s journey. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, music, art, movies, being with nature, singing and laughing. I also have a huge passion for travel and would like to see as much of this world as possible.
