Connie Dawson-Toft, MA
Licensed Mental Health Counselor
Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor
Approved Supervisor for Mental Health, Family and Play Therapy
I have been in the field of mental health for over 20 years and have had the opportunity to receive advanced training in multiple treatment methods. I use an integrative approach including client-determined treatment goals and my role is to bring in available, current and evidence based clinical skills to create change. I am trained in various treatment approaches that all have the common goal of accessing what we now understand about you and how your brain, body, personality and life expreriences come together to create your current state of being.
I work with people of all ages and the treatment approach depends on the age. I am a Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor and provide a playroom in the therapy clinic to ensure children have the best chance to work toward change in a way that is natural for the child.
My training as a child therapist has made my work with adults more rewarding since I bring an understanding of development into adult work. The foundation of my work with adults is to integrate logic, emotion, and awareness of the physical body. This is then combined with learning self compassion to increase resliience and flexibility to promote healthy decision making and relationships.
