Located in Cedar Knolls, New Jersey.
ADHD, Mood & Behavior Center has a brick and mortar location in Cedar Knolls, New Jersey, where we pioneer comprehensive therapy children and adolescents with emotional, behavioral, social and academic difficulties, and for their families. We service patients throughout New Jersey and New York with both in-person and virtual therapeutic programs.
Our professional staff includes board certified child and adolescent psychiatrists, highly specialized child & adolescent behavior therapists and psychotherapists, learning consultants, organizational skills coaches, speech & language therapists, occupational therapists and nutritionists.
Though our clinical professionals are experts in diagnosis and treatment of childhood disorders, we know from our vast experience that all children and adolescents do not necessarily fit neatly into particular diagnostic categories. As such, we believe in not simply looking for a “diagnosis”. Rather, we strive to understand each child and adolescent and his or her needs, as well as those of their family, and to identify their specific problem areas, whether they are emotional, behavioral, social or academic. From this understanding, we design an individualized treatment plan that effectively and practically helps each of our New Jersey and New York patients.
Children and adolescents who struggle with their MOODS may be experiencing one of a variety of mood disorders such as depression, anxiety disorders and childhood bipolar disorder, though it can simply be ‘an excess of emotion’ which causes a child or adolescent to experience life as an emotional ‘roller coaster’ that interferes with daily life.
Our goal in treatment is to help these children become more aware of their moods and learn how to influence, regulate and control them. Where appropriate, our board certified child psychiatrists will expertly and judiciously consider with you the appropriate use of medication as part of a treatment plan.
We teach what depression, anxiety and childhood bipolar disorder are and how they can affect a child’s daily life. We have adolescent groups that meet regularly where teens can meet and discuss their experiences with bipolar disorder or depression, or simply their experiences with excessive mood swings.
Difficult, oppositional and defiant BEHAVIOR can disrupt a child’s interactions with teachers and classmates, with peers and with family. The tantrums or even rages of a child with Oppositional Defiant Disorder or Childhood Bipolar Disorder, or of a child with Asperger’s Disorder or Autism Spectrum Disorders can tear a family apart with tension and frustration. We teach children new ways of managing their anger and teach parents specialized techniques to help them maintain their child’s behavioral control.
For children who lack the social skills or the self-confidence necessary to forge healthy relationships with peers, we help these children develop healthier and more effective social skills, within the framework of a group setting, where the intricacies of social interaction, as well as anger management and conflict resolution techniques, are taught.
