About Dr. Ouellette:
I went to Tufts Medical School and completed my residency trainIng at Tufts/ New England Medical Center. I am a Board Certified Psychiatrist and a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association. When I first moved to Maine in 1988 I worked at Jackson’s Brook Institute which is now Spring Harbor Hospital . I have been in private practice in Brunswick, Maine and on the staff at Mid Coast Hospital since 1991. My practice has always provided general adult psychiatric care, including diagnostic evaluations, medication treatment, and psychotherapy for mood disorders, anxiety, PTSD, personality disorders and more. However, over the years I have developed more training and expertise in the specialty area of perinatal psychiatry, the treatment of women during pregnancy and in the postpartum period. This also includes dealing with pregnancy loss, infertility, preconception counseling and other issues related to childbearing. More recently as my practice has become very full and referrals for new patients have progressively increased, I give priority to women seeking perinatal psychiatric care since there is little access to that care elsewhere.
I consider it a great privilege to do this kind of work which allows me to be let into my patients’ personal thoughts and feelings in very intimate ways and I find it very gratifying to build trusting relationships which I feel are a huge component of healing in the treatment.
