I have worked extensively with children for over 19 years. I am proud to be a nationally certified Parents as Teachers educator that enhances my interactions with the child and parent. I have been fortunate to work with children who are aggressive, cast aside and misunderstood. I am certified to work with children with inappropriate sexual behaviors and proud to serve that population. I approach dealing with children with a great deal of joy that makes them feel non-judged and important. I treat children from ages 3-18.

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.

Directive and non-directive play therapy are the two main ways I work with children in therapy. I use art, sand, toys and games to help children feel safe in the counseling environment. Children express themselves through play, using their imaginations to share with the therapist their thoughts and feelings. Working with young children also heavily involves the parents, teaching them new skills that help with behavior modification.

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.
