Hi, I’m Elizabeth Payne! I’m very excited to join the team and serve this community! After spending the past 10 years of my life nestled in the mountains of Virginia and West Virginia, this native-born northerner traded in green hills for sandy beaches as my husband and I embarked on a new adventure in Jacksonville, Florida.
While my college career began in journalism, I was struck by the desire to reach into the lives of others and come alongside individuals and families wherever they might find themselves. A multitude of experiences such as humanitarian work overseas and opportunities to work with youth and adults confirmed my love for this field. I studied psychology and counseling in Virginia, where I met and learned alongside my husband.
High school and college students are a population I love working with, along with parents and families, to facilitate positive change. Faith-based counseling from a biblical perspective is also a personal passion of mine, available to interested clients. I would love the opportunity to sit with you and begin this journey if you are ready to initiate change for the better!
