Motivational Interviewing

Motivational interviewing is often used to address addiction and the management of physical health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and asthma. This intervention helps people become motivated to change the behaviors that are preventing them from making healthier choices.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a short-term form of psychotherapy directed at present-time issues and based on the idea that the way an individual thinks and feels affects the way he or she behaves. The focus is on problem solving, and the goal is to change clients' thought patterns in order to change their responses to difficult situations.


Mindfulness is frequently used in meditation and certain kinds of therapy. It has many positive benefits, including lowering stress levels, reducing harmful ruminating, and protecting against depression and anxiety. Research even suggests that mindfulness can help people better cope with rejection and social isolation.


Effective supervisors observe, mentor, coach, evaluate, inspire, and create an atmosphere that promotes self-motivation, learning, and professional development. Qualified supervision is available for LCSW and MFT.


Groups can act as a support network and a sounding board. Other members of the group often help you come up with specific ideas for improving a difficult situation or life challenge, and hold you accountable along the way. Groups will be held as needed.


Telehealth is the use of digital information and communication technologies, such as computers and mobile devices, to access health care services remotely and manage your health care needs.


Clinical hypnosis is a powerful method of bringing about desired changes in feelings or behavior. It has proved extremely valuable for individuals wishing to lose weight, stop smoking, improve performance, or eliminate anxiety. Some individual may need Rapid Resolution Therapy to be rid of anxiety based on a variety of factors. Because the hypnotic process affects the subconscious mind, changes are automatic, natural, and lasting. Dr. (Elwell) Payne offers a 15-minute free consultation for anyone considering hypnotherapy to answer any questions and relieve any concerns regarding the process.

Usual duration of appointments ranges from just 1 to 5 sessions as the methods used are powerful and tend to give rapid results.

Mind/Body Healing

The method of Mind/Body Healing used includes a form of hypnosis that is thought to reach the subconscious mind to automatically cause the body to respond, engaging the parasympathetic nervous system, helping increase healing while helping “tone down” the response of the “pain messenger”. If there is no need to inform the person that there is an issue (meaning the person has been told medically that they are doing, or have done, what there is to do given their situation). Therefore, the person responds feeling more comfortable and seems to have more energy available for healing and enjoying life.

Usual duration of appointments ranges from just 1 to 5 sessions as the methods used are powerful and tend to give rapid results.

BodyTalk is a relatively new and powerful truly holistic and natural method of physical and emotional healing which can stand alone or compliment western or eastern medicine.

Rapid Resolution Therapy

Also known as Rapid Trauma Resolution, Rapid Resolution Therapy can help you bring about desired change, not only in the things you do, but even in those things you feel. Long-standing habits can be changed and so can your emotional responses.
