About Me

My name is Lynette Pitre and I am a licensed professional counselor in Louisiana. I have worked in the helping field for 20+ years. During my career I have been fortunate to work with a myriad of individuals. My experience includes working in psychiatric hospitals, nursing homes, out-patient clinics, and at a private practice. I have helped individuals manage their depression, anxiety, and anger. I have helped people overcome the struggles of living with ADHD. Also, I have aided those who have bipolar or postpartum depression.

My counseling approach is solution focused which is often integrated with CBT. I see us working as a team to accomplish the goals you want to reach. Together we will identify strengths and develop those strengths into tools that will get you through a variety of life’s challenges.

I look forward to joining your team!

If I had to write a review for Lynette properly, I can write a full book chapter. She has been a big part of improvements in my life the past 1.5+ years and a constant voice of reason and support. I have seen improvement in myself and my mental health, priorities owing to our past and still ongoing sessions. Not only myself, she has indirectly helped my friends too. The voice inside me which I learnt to call the bully voice from her, has matured and nowadays is learning to behave as a reasonable voice, much like her. If you are looking for someone like that, someone with warmth, kindness, who will listen to you and cater her expertise and experience to your specific needs, choose her. Take care. :)

Very good counsellor, I have confidence in her abilities and feel respected and understood.
She’s compassionate but professional, and does what she can to meet my needs when it comes to scheduling and the issues that come up during our sessions.
This has been one of the best experiences I’ve had with a counsellor.

She has been helpful and attentive. I would recommend her to others and I do not feel I would want to change. I could not have asked for a better counselor and its because of her I want to continue with betterhelp.

Written by L.I. on Apr 06, 2020 after therapy with Lynette for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Lynette is a very caring person,I say that because she takes the time to check on me even when I’m not available but she’s always the first to contact me and check up on. I find that extremely important and she’s not just doing it because it’s her job but because she cares about the well being of her patients. It’s been great to work with her and I see myself progressing as I keep in contact with her.

Work with me!
