Children & Adolescents I love helping children, teens, and parents through early life issues. A balanced child will enjoy much greater success in relationships and performance. I have been blessed to work with numerous children with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) as we work on growing focus abilities and learning to act more age appropriate. Younger children respond well to play therapy and look forward to sessions with me. Teens have responded well to working through issues while being treated with respect and compassion.

Flora Dunbar, MA, LPA, LCMHC, BC-TMH

Psychological Associate, Clinical Mental Health Counselor, Board Certified Telemental Health Provider

Available for Online Therapy

For 15 years I was the staff psychologist for a program serving children, ages birth to six, who were at risk for or experiencing problems with social-emotional development. I worked with children individually in play therapy and provided parent-child intervention therapy to help parents enhance their child’s secure attachment. In the absence of a play therapy room, I do not accept children as Telemental health clients, but I do offer consultation to NC parents of young children regarding their child’s social and emotional health. To be clear, the service is parent consultation and not child or adult therapy. I was trained in and rely on Attachment theory, Filial Therapy and the Circle of Security model to guide the parent consultation.

From my bantage point, working with the mental health issues of young children involve the developing of parenting skills in the behavioral management of their children. For instance, children with high anxiety and ADHD need parental management promoting understimulation and a definite enviromental structure. These children need continual prompting as to tasks, espectations, wakeup time and bedtime. Even children with depression would benefit from these approaches. Parents and therapist meet to define the child's problem and need and the protolcol to be executed toward the changing and repairing of child behavior.

Male teens are getting into emotional and social difficulties through sex ting, pornography, sending personal photos to each other and early sexual encounters. Parents should realize that these early sexual activities profoundly influence the teens adult decisions including mate selection and employment success or failure. Helping the teen to mature early will help their life time of happiness.
