Tom Kubasik, LCPC

Director of GETME

Tom Kubasik, LCPC, received his MS in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Southern Maine in 2006, where he focused on Person-Centered Therapy. After two year of practice, he pursued a two-year Gestalt Therapy training program at the Gestalt Institute of New England in Somerville, MA.

Since then, Tom has focused primarily on the study of Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), an empirically supported integration of Person-Centered Therapy and Gestalt Therapy.

This has included trainings with EFT’s primary originator, Les Greenberg, along with Serine Warwar, at the Emotion-Focused Clinic at York University in Toronto. Tom also consults regularly with another major EFT theorist, Rhonda Goldman.

Tom completed an externship in Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples with Sue Johnson through the Ackerman Institute for the Family (NYC), and Advanced Core Skills in EFT through the New York Center for EFT with George Faller and Debi-Scimeca-Diaz, (NYC).

Tom also studied Gene Gendlin’s Focusing with Ruth Hirsch though the Focusing Institute.

Tom trained in clinical supervision through Chandler Bay Resources, with Jeri Stevens, Randi Cohen, and Deborah Drew.

Tom founded GETME in 2014 in order to share the warmth and power of humanistic therapy with his fellow Maine therapists.
