Jamie Pouliot, LCMHC
I have been working in the counseling field since 2003. Throughout that time
I have learned that the relationship between myself and my client is one
of the most important agents of change. When asked, “What do you recall
about your experience in therapy?” More often than not, clients remember the
positive supportive statements of their therapist.
My goal with every client is to provide an engaging, supportive and empathetic
environment where the client feels relevant. I believe that therapy is about discovery
and growth and both can happen when working in an appropriate environment.
Throughout my career I have worked extensively with families well as individual clients and couples. While working with families I developed a deeper curiosity about interpersonal relationships and relational difficulties which led me to start focusing more of my practice on working with couples. As most clinician do, over time I developed specific areas of clinical interest which include: anxiety disorders, individuals affected by trauma, self-esteem issues, depression, infidelity, divorce, sexual dysfunction and issues related to infertility and reproductive health.
When I am not working I enjoy being outside. Whether it be hiking, kayaking,
or just soaking up the sun. In 2013 I fulfilled a childhood dream and became certified as a PADI scuba diver. I have always had an appreciation for
the ocean and the life in it and find my time underwater to be a place of serenity. The forest and mountains also provide me with a sense of peace. My husband
and I try to get to the White Mountains a few times a year to work toward
our goal of hiking New Hampshire's 4000 footers.
Finding the balance in life can be difficult and when we are not functioning at
our best it can affect us emotionally and physically and interfere with our relationships. If you are seeking a new direction, the ability to heal or the desire to reconnect with your spouse I would like to assist you on your journey.
