About Mamie Payne
I am a native Texan, born and raised in Austin and now living in College Station for the last four years, along with my husband, five kids, two cats, one dog, and two gerbils. I love people and am fascinated with the human condition- the good, the bad, and the ugly- and believe ultimately that we share more in common as a human family than the news might suggest. What we all share in common is a fundamental need for connection, love, belonging; as well as a universal experience of struggle in life.
I take an integrative and person-centered approach to therapy, drawing heavily from the humanistic belief that people are good, and use a variety of therapeutic techniques toward the goal of growth and development. I address each client according to the systems, both internal and external, that comprise the organizing principles of their lives. Core tenets of my approach to psychotherapy include: Self-actualization, creativity, resilience, individuality, identifying and embracing core values, becoming, and meaning.
In the course of therapy, I will support you by helping you learn how to gain a greater awareness of your emotions, as well as the impact of emotions on our thoughts and behavior. We will explore limiting beliefs and how you may be holding yourself back from positive change and personal fulfillment. I will help you identify how shame, vulnerability, courage, and creativity impact our ability to grow and reach our full potential, and we will we will work to enhance awareness, emotional agility, and healthy self-direction.
