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, and then returned to Arizona to start our family and go into practice.

I approach this work from a problem solving and communication enhancing mode. We want to increase the quality of communication, and help them become mature problem solvers. 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 actualize your potential. 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.

Replies quickly. I have already recommended to 2 families for their teens.
I have greatly appreciated Dr. Stafford's support and help to date.
Dr. Stanford is exactly what I wanted when I signed up for this app. He listens and he responds very precise and quickly.
He is awesome!
Dr. Stafford is the best counselor I've ever had. He listens to my concerns and gives me good advice about what I should do in the situation.
Dr. Stafford has been so helpful in the short time we have been talking. He is always right there to help. I'm feeling better.
Dr. Stafford is amazing. I accomplished more with him in a week than I did with others in months. He’s there for me. Never belittles me. And always listens.
What most people had all around them, I have had to hunt down and hold onto fiercely. The void left by toxic family members and former close friends is filled with the gratitude I have for those that chose to invest in my life. I think the closest people in our lives are those we choose to make a part of it, and those that choose to be part of it. The power of individual choice is very great. Thank you Dr. Stafford for being part of my journey.
Dr. Stafford has been a great help, I enjoy our conversations and I really like that he continues to send me messages even when I am not as responsive due to things going on in my life. Highly recommend Dr. Stafford and this program. And already have shown a few people this service as a tool to improve their mental well being..
Dr. Stafford has been very responsive to the issues I am working through. He is knowledgeable, empathetic, and follows up regularly. I am encouraged by his support.
Really nice and understanding.
Dr. Stafford truly cares about our well being. This is not a means to an end for him, he truly cares. He has answered my worst call and he'll answer my happiest update in the same positive manner. I don't know where I'd be without him.
Neil is very helpful!! Thanks.
Dr Stafford is easy to talk to and provides a good sounding board for figuring out issues to resolve and goals to achieve.

Dr Stafford has helped and encouraged me to uncover my own answers to life's problems. He has helped me explore my emotions and enabled me to make positive change. I don't often write reviews, however Dr. Stafford has been so incredibly powerful in aiding my healing process. Please consider him for your counselor.
Dr. Stafford has been very good asking the right questions to validate my feelings and help guide me in the right direction. It's very comforting putting my thoughts on paper knowing there is an experienced counselor on the other end who will provide an objective assessment. I recommend teen counseling - and Dr. Stafford - for anyone facing life transitions that may need support in making the correct choices.
Dr. Stafford understands what my concerns are and goes through every little thing and tries to find anything possible to help in any way!
