The licensed therapists at GATE specialize in helping to mediate sibling conflicts for siblings of all ages. Whether you are looking to help your children develop a healthier relationship, or you are an adult seeking to resolve disputes with your sibling(s), GATE can help you devise a therapy treatment plan that suits you and your sibling’s needs and mental health.
Sibling Conflict Therapy Plans
We approach sibling conflict in three different ways depending on you and your siblings’ needs. GATE utilizes the following types of therapy to treat sibling conflict.
The therapists at GATE can work one-on-one with you and your sibling(s) to help plan and prepare strategies for conflict resolution. We will address your perception of the relationship and your place in it to help you discover the best path forward in your relationship with your sibling(s) and your personal mental health.
CBT therapy examines the relationship between your thoughts and the resulting behaviors that come from them. By helping to change your thought process, you can make noticeable changes to your behavior. This is useful for analyzing why you act the way you do in your relationship with your sibling(s). Using meta-cognition, or thinking about thinking, we can help you prepare to address the conflict.
For sibling conflicts, group therapy can work in two complementary ways. A therapist specializing in conflict remediation can help guide you and your sibling(s) to a resolution in a group setting. For children, this might take the form of family therapy. Additionally, you and your sibling(s) can enter a larger group session consisting of a group therapy counselor and other siblings working on their relationships. This group perspective can change how you see your relationship.
At GATE, we combine therapy and gaming. We use tools such as board games, storytelling, role-playing, sand trays, and expressive arts in our therapy services.

GATE Therapy Intake Process
The licensed therapists, social workers, and counselors at GATE follow a three-step process to deliver the proper therapy care to our clients. This process works as follows: consultation, evaluation, and initial appointment.
This phase helps us determine what type of therapy works best for you. We go over insurance, medical history, therapy goals and decide whether or not you’d prefer in-person sessions or remote sessions during this step. Your medical data is kept localized and confidential using TheraNest.
During the evaluation phase, we help build a treatment plan based on your needs, therapy goals, and mental health evaluation. This phase helps ensure that you receive the best care in the way most suited to your needs.
In the appointment phase, we work session by session to meet your treatment plan goals. Using TheraNest, you can schedule, reschedule, and make payments online at your convenience.
