GETME is Gestalt/Experiential Therapy of Maine, and also Gestalt/Experiential Training of Maine. The name points toward our theoretical roots, and toward the very human wish to be seen, heard, and understood. GETME is a place to receive counseling & psychotherapy, as well as a training center for professionals who offer these services.
In our view, change is the result of an affective (feelings) process that takes place within the context of an ongoing personal relationship. We endeavor to offer the conditions for this change to happen. We work with individuals and couples to transform emotional pain into clarity, peace, and even joy. We support emotional health, strong interpersonal connections, & clear, independent identities.
As a training center, GETME offers a foundation for therapists to become the most effective helpers they can be, through experiential learning of empirically-supported methods.
