Lev Pouliot, CPC
Certified Peer Counselor | Telehealth Team
Lev Pouliot (they/them) is a non-binary, mixed-race native Michigander currently residing in Washington, where they studied communication at The Evergreen State College, and have been working in mental health—formally and informally— for 6 years. Empowerment, directness, and curiosity are core elements of their peer counseling style, which they use to support clients in making equal space both for where they are and where they want to be.
“How can we feel more connected? How can we tell ourselves kinder stories about who we are and what we’re capable of?”
Lev believes that every individual can exist in a world where the intangible can become tangible, their experiences are a source of strength and wisdom, and they can be guided by their skills and innate power. The complexity of Lev’s own recovery has given them the flexibility to support others in creating uniquely therapeutic goals.
Lev specializes in shadow work, relationships (including navigating non-monogamy), QTBIPOC experiences, family dynamics and generational trauma, anxiety, and the process of finding joy in unexpected and difficult places—especially within capitalism and systemic oppression.
In addition to their counseling work, Lev enjoys speculative fiction, dancing, mountain drives, meditation, harm reduction, improv games, and writing.
