Stevie Stanford, PhD, Licensed Psychologist, EMDR, CSAT-C, CDWF
As a leading trauma expert in the Austin community, Dr. Stanford joins the Driftwood Recovery team to facilitate the trauma program.

In addition to her primary specialty of trauma, Dr. Stanford specializes in addictions, attachment/relationship issues and couples’ therapy. She is an LGBTQ affirming therapist and specializes in shame resilience.
Dr. Stanford is a published author and has presented across the country on topics such as; Healthy Sexuality after Healing from Sexual Trauma, Attachment Disorders in Adopted Teens, Eating Disorders in Males, EMDR and Mindfulness, Working with Transgender Clients in Residential Treatment, and Trauma Treatment for Clients with Addictions.
