Tarboro Pediatric Psychology was founded by Dr. Paige Temple, who grew up in Tarboro and returned in 2004 to start a private practice serving children and families in Edgecombe County.  Due to our unique array of pediatric services, populations served have expanded to include those from Tarboro, Rocky Mount, Greenville, Wilson, Roanoke Rapids, Ahoskie and areas further east.  

Our mission is to provide high quality, evidence-based assessment and treatment in a caring environment.  We take pride in offering cutting edge services that are based on individual needs.
