My name is Nancy Gaudet and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) in Maine, as well as Nationally Certified Counselor, (NCC). I have been in practice for 7 years in different settings, such as running group sessions, community agency, as well as my own practice. Prior to becoming a Psychotherapist, I taught in the Public Schools, worked as a Corporate Manager, raised 4 sons as a stay at home Mom, survived divorce and began to find my voice as a Single Mom and a Cancer Survivor. I will probably always be an educator. My passion for becoming a Psychotherapist actually occurred during a season of being a Single Mom and leading a Single Mom’s Group! I believe life situations happen for a reason. Challenges can help us grow stronger and bring more balance into our lives.
My favorite quote is by Viktor Frankl: Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.
My therapy approach is strength-based. This simply means that you and I will collaborate and find solutions in a strength positive manner.
During each of our sessions, we will discuss your current challenges, determine your goals, and develop an individual treatment plan. I am trained to use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and (what I refer to as) ‘cousins to CBT’, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I also use Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). All are empirically based, goal-directed and collaborative approaches to psychotherapeutic interventions.
My counseling style is open and nonjudgmental. I look forward to assisting you in acquiring the tools to become empowered to face life’s problems in a healthier and productive way.

I am pleased with the help and ideas on work I can do to improve my view of my circumstances.
Nancy is very kind and an extremely intentional listener.
Nancy has been wonderful. It is a blessing to be able to have a Christian based therapist.
I have only been working with Nancy a short time and already I am feeling the benefits from strategies she has suggested to me. I am really thankful to have found her!
Nancy helps making therapy a comfortable, safe space for vulnerability and self reflection.
