Background: Mary E. Stafford, M.Ed., is an Arizona State Licensed Professional Counselor with 23 years experience. She is a member of the American Counselors Association, Arizona Counselors Association, and the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology. Counseling is her second career. Her first career was in biochemistry. She has a Ph.D. in Biochemistry from University of California, Irvine, and worked in that field for 10 years before making a career change to a field she felt would be more fulfilling. At that time she went back to school and earned an M.Ed. in Counseling and Guidance from the University of Arizona.
Since 1981, Mary has worked as a counselor in various settings including as a crisis counselor for a state agency where she routinely had clients in extreme states of distress. Late in 1996 she learned Thought Field TherapyTM (TFT) and began using it with amazing results. She trained with Dr. Roger Callahan, the developer of TFT, in 1997, so that she could offer the training to other professionals. Since then she has been counseling individuals and groups in her private practice, MindBody Therapies, and training other mental health professionals in TFT and Emotional Freedom TechniquesTM (EFT). Mary has earned the basic level certification in EFT (E.F.T.-cc) and the Advanced Level (E.F.T.-adv). She has been training professionals in EFT since 1997. On September 1, 2006, she earned the title, 'EFT-Master', and, on December 1, 2006, she was awarded the designation, Diplomate - Comprehensive Energy Psychology.
She is a warm and caring person. With her skills in counseling and her knowledge of these new MindBody approaches to emotional well being, she is readily able to help clients reach their goals.
