I was raised in a Christian family and as an adult, I came to know Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. Having said this, and if you also are a Believer in Christ, aren’t we supposed to have everything figured out?
Common myths about Christians seeking the help of a Psychotherapist:
I have the Lord; I don’t need any help…. I just need to pray harder…. If I seek counseling then it means that I don’t trust God.
Hello, 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 facilitating both Christian and secular therapy groups, community agency, as well as my own clinical practice.
My therapy approach is empirically and strength based. This simply means that you and I will collaborate and find solutions in a strength positive manner that will be based upon God’s Word. During each of our sessions, we will discuss your current challenges, determine your goals, and develop an individual treatment plan. I am a trained Cognitive Behavioral Therapist (CBT) that integrates a faith-based treatment modality.
If you are like me, you are not perfect. We need other people along with the body of Christ to do this thing called life. Whether you are a Christian or not, spirituality is vital to health and well-being.
I’m so glad you are seeking therapy. I am here to respect your values, beliefs and to support you in a journey to better emotional health.

Nancy is great! She has always been so encouraging and understanding of my circumstances, and has given me tools and exercises in which I can deal with them in an appropriate and healthy manner.
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.
