Children process their emotions through their work, which is play. They naturally express what is happening internally with specific resources provided for play therapy. With the Child-Centered Play Therapy model I use, children progress through natural and predictable stages of play and expression. Some take longer than others to complete the process, but you can expect 8-12 sessions for lesser issues, and other children, depending on the level of issues, can take up to 30 or so. A key part of growth and healing for the child is the family, which is why I also offer Filial Therapy to help parents with some ways they can support their child's growth at home.

I work with parents to help them feel more confident about parenting their young children. You can learn to fully participate and enjoy these years that will soon be a memory. Parenting is a difficult job but also a very rewarding one. You can learn to empathize more with your child and create a parenting style that works most effectively for you.

If you are feeling exhausted and discouraged in the search for help for your child, we can assist your child to walk throughout whatever they are facing and find strength in doing so. The change may not happen on the first or the second session, but we are here to walk with you and your child on a journey of healing and growth. Depending on your child's needs and goals, we will cooperate with you in creating a plan to help your child overcome the difficulties and become successful students and ultimately - successful adults.

Child Therapist

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

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

In 28262 - Nearby to Matthews.

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.
