Even though you don’t feel like yourself right now, you aren’t broken. And you aren’t weak or crazy either. You are human.
I know you are probably the person that people go to when they need help. But it ok to ask for what you need. And it’s ok to receive support, not just during stressful times but anytime.
Counseling is not a place where you or your experiences will be judged. Instead, going to counseling is an act of self-love. By creating the space to invest in yourself, you are investing in the life you desire to create.
Welcome, I’m Marci Payne, a Licensed Professional Counselor in Missouri
I help you create a space where you feel heard both inside and out.
I witness the challenges you are facing. And I reflect your strengths to you.
And together, we illuminate the places you feel stuck. By shining light on the ways that you get in your own way and the patterns that hold you back.
I guide you to access your own wisdom and truth. So, you find your way back to yourself.
And once again, you feel empowered to create and lead a life that is more aligned with what matters to you. By doing only your part to create more fulfilling relationships that support you instead of drain you.
What is my special blend of therapy skills?
I help you create fulfilling relationships by first transforming the relationship with yourself. And I do this by blending family systems, self-love practices, and mindfulness.
If you are looking to heal and transform the parts of yourself or your life that are no longer working for you, then schedule a free 15-minute phone consult with Marci. Together we will decide if I’m the best therapist to help you go from surviving to thriving.
