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.

Nancy has been a great help to my daughter and to our family. I can always count on her to respond in a timely manner and to give me expert advice. She has been a blessing and a great help to our family.
Nancy has been wonderful. It is a blessing to be able to have a Christian based therapist.
Talking and messaging with Nancy is like conversing with an old friend, comforting and consoling. Her spiritual insight is inspiring and helpful.
She has really helped me - reminding me to be good to myself, validating both my pain and my strength. From an outside perspective, this is very valuable. Talking to her helps me find names for things - and naming is power. Nancy is warm and caring, and I feel better by leaps, after speaking with her. Widowhood is hard, but she is helping me remind myself that, with God's love, His strength, I can and will emerge from this pain and loss whole, if changed.
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.
