Sibling Therapy in New Brunswick, NJ

At Gaming Approaches Towards Education, LLC (GATE), we specialize in sibling therapy in New Brunswick, NJ, that fosters healthier relationships between siblings. Our therapists are experienced in mediating sibling conflicts, resolving disputes, and creating tailored therapy plans. Our goal is to help you and your sibling(s) resolve the underlying issues that result in conflict or poor mental health.

Sibling Conflict Therapy Plans

When you pursue sibling therapy in New Brunswick, NJ, our experienced therapists will work with you to determine your needs and goals for therapy and tailor our sibling therapy services accordingly.

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy consists of a one-on-one therapy session with one of our experienced therapists. This is beneficial to reflect on you and your sibling’s relationship and the conflict within it. Then, we’ll find ways to improve your relationship and mental health in a manner that is best for both parties.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive-behavioral therapy, or CBT, helps you understand the connection between your thoughts and actions. By using metacognition or thinking about thinking, our therapists help you understand why you act the way you do toward your sibling. Then, once you know the reasons behind your actions, we work toward changing your negative thought processes to healthier ones for conflict resolution and improved overall mental health.

Group Therapy

Sibling group therapy in New Brunswick, NJ, can work in one of two ways. First, a therapist that specializes in conflict resolution can work with you and your sibling through your conflicts in a safe and private environment. If there are children, this session can be a family therapy session. There is also an opportunity for a larger group therapy session with other groups of siblings. These types of sessions are great for learning from others.

Play Therapy

Play therapy combines therapy and gaming to help our clients learn valuable coping, conflict resolution, and communication skills. These games typically include board games, storytelling, role-playing, sand trays, and expressive arts.

Therapy Based on Your Needs

No two sibling relationships are the same, so we tailor our sibling therapy services to your unique situation. Our licensed therapists will create a unique therapy plan for you and your sibling during your initial consultation.

GATE Therapy Process

GATE’s therapy process works in three parts to deliver tailored therapy for our clients. This includes consultation, evaluation, and initial appointment.


First, one of our therapists, counselors, or social workers will collect information about your medical history, any previous diagnoses, your goals for therapy, and your preference for in-person or online telehealth therapy sessions. We use an online confidential web program, TheraNest, to store your information.


Next, you’ll undergo a guided self-evaluation and another evaluation administered by one of our therapists. The goal of the evaluation is to determine your needs, therapy goals, and mental health in order to tailor our services to you.


After the evaluation, you’ll be able to make therapy appointments around your schedule. You can use our web program TheraNest to schedule, reschedule, and cancel appointments with ease. You may also input credit card information there to make paying for copayments much easier.
