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.
