Hello, I am Dr. Neil Stafford. I am a licensed clinical psychologist with 12 years of experience providing therapy to a wide range of individuals and families in the state of Arizona. I am also a certified school psychologist. I am an Arizona native. I received my doctoral degree in southern California at Fuller Theological Seminary, and then returned to Arizona to start our family and go into practice.
An emphasis of my training in graduate school and in my current practice is the integration of faith and psychology. I believe my faith informs my practice. It allows me to practice at a deeper level with many clients. Matthew 22: 37-39 is very important to my practice. "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself."
I have a well rounded experience of work with with a wide range of individuals and families from age 5 to 70. My training includes CBT, family therapy, mindfulness, interpersonal neurobiology, parenting, behavior management, crisis intervention, anger management. I provide client centered approach specializing in family issues, parenting, school, and individual work in depression, stress, and anxiety. The emphasis is on acceptance, genuineness, and finding a path to live a life full of love. We will focus on the here and now. We will collaborate together to devise a plan that is focused on your priorities. What's most important is you, and how I can help you. The person you want to be is already there. Our work together will be to bring that person out in a positive way.
I am an active member of professional associations. I regularly speak and educate other professionals to improve their approaches. I also supervise psychologists in training as I'm dedicated to improving the field.
I look forward to working with you.
