ADHD Therapy NJ
Types of ADHD Treatment
This type of ADHD therapy allows you to sit down with one of our therapists one-on-one. Individual therapy can help you recognize symptoms and learn how to cope and focus on your strengths. These therapy sessions also help with emotional struggles related to having ADHD, such as self-esteem.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy focuses on how your thoughts impact your behavior. Our therapists will help you find better ways to cope and address situations related to your ADHD by identifying and changing negative thought patterns.
ADHD group therapy is a form of therapy that allows you to connect with others who also have ADHD. A psychotherapist will supervise the group, but this space is mostly for you to get support from other group members and for you to share your experiences and thoughts.
Our licensed counselors use board games, storytelling, role-playing, sand trays, and expressive arts for treating children and adults. This form of ADHD therapy helps our clients engage and practice skills they've learned throughout their treatment.
ADHD Therapy Based on Your Needs
You don’t have to worry about fitting into a pre-set ADHD therapy plan. Our licensed counselors will create a unique treatment plan for your exact mental health needs and therapy goals.
When it comes to mental health disorders, we want to make it as easy and stress-free as possible for you to get the care you need. That's why we accept insurance, including Horizon and CIGNA. To learn more about our payment options, contact us today.

Types of ADHD We Treat
At Gaming Approaches Towards Education, LLC (GATE), our licensed counselors have experience providing support to clients with all three types of ADHD: impulsive, inattentive, and combined. During our initial evaluation process, we’ll work with you to determine the best ADHD therapy services for your mental health needs.
We treat the following types of ADHD in the below areas in NJ:
Also known as hyperactive, impulsive ADHD is commonly characterized by the interrupting, taking unnecessary risks, fidgeting or squirming, and difficulties staying on task. During an in-person ADHD therapy session, we’ll help you or your child learn how to change negative behaviors, like blurting things out at inappropriate times, for healthy behaviors like waiting your turn to speak. You’ll gain tools and coping strategies to help you focus, channel your energy, and improve your relationships with others.
If you have inattentive ADHD you likely struggle to pay attention to small details, make careless mistakes, follow instructions, getting distracted, and being forgetful. Our ADHD therapists will work with you in cognitive-behavioral therapy, group therapy, and individual therapy to develop new skills and coping strategies that will help you focus, stay on task, and listen better.
Combined ADHD is the most common type of ADHD. It combines the symptoms of impulsive and inattentive ADHD. During our ADHD therapy, we’ll help you address the symptoms of both types. Whether you struggle with interrupting and following instructions or taking unnecessary risk and getting distracted, we’ll help you find the tools you need to cope with your diagnosis and improve upon negative behaviors.
