MY NAME IS ELIZABETH PAYNE
I'm a wife, mom of two, and licensed mental health counselor here in the Sunshine State. Whatever drew you here today, thank you for taking the time to tap into this little corner of the web. There's a lot out there these days- a flood of information, wanted (or unwanted?) advice, noisy opinions and a crowd of voices ready to comment on what we do or don't do. It's hard to navigate through all that sometimes, isn't it? I know it is for me.
Honestly starting this site was a step of faith in my own journey. While my college freshman self fantasized a big-city career in journalism, a few unexpected plot twists landed me here- with you. The joy of joining in the journey of someone who's invited you in just seemed incomparable to any other career choice, in my opinion, and by God's grace He led me down a path that allows me now to do what I love and love what I do. The aspiring writer is still in there though, so I'm excited to utilize this platform to delve into some pertinent topics relating to relationships, parenthood, faith, and overall mental health and wellbeing. The visuals and subgenres may change, but I hope the ultimate mission stands firm, that it's a source of light, of encouragement rooted in truth to live life to the fullest.
This is QUITE the lengthy intro, but if there's one takeaway here amidst all the other (many of them amazing) platforms and resources and voices on the internet, let it be this: No matter where you're coming from or what you've been through, YOU are valuable, you are loved, and you are worth fighting for. If you can grab ahold of that truth and want more, don't hesitate to contact me or click below.
I would love to hear from you! Let me know your thoughts, what you'd like to read about, or ask questions about getting started with professional counseling. You can email below or message me through the chat box. Thanks for being part of Well Living!
