Catherine Payne

Hello! I’m Catherine and I’m glad you have found your way here! I work with children and adults to help facilitate healing, self-understanding and growth. Counseling can be such a vulnerable yet powerful tool, and I’m both excited and humbled to join you on your journey.

I found my way to graduate school in Mental Health Counseling after working for an inner city after-school program and for a local private school. I feel passionate about working with people one-on-one and helping them feel comfortable and understood. My desire is to create a trusting relationship to allow clients the space to share and heal well.

My counseling is informed by Person-Centered Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I am grateful to join you in a sacred space and look forward to seeing your growth!

Family brings me the most joy, so I love spending quality time with my husband here in Orlando and with my parents and twin sister in Texas. Originally from Texas, I am accustomed to the sunny weather here and spend time outside running, walking with friends, and occasional beach days. I can also be found in the kitchen cooking new meals and anywhere in the apartment where I have managed to set up my art supplies and paint the day away.
