Stephanie Renee Payne is a certified life coach, clinical hypnotherapist, writer, speaker, and educator. Her coaching and hypnotherapy practice focuses on facilitating a deep exploration into the self to cultivate self-love, and inner wisdom. Stephanie came to this work while engaged in the writing of a memoir, and found herself confronted with childhood trauma. This discovery led to a five-year trek studying alternative healing practices that ultimately led Stephanie into the healing arts. Stephanie founded One Woman One Voice Project, a support network for women, and is the author of ESP: Extreme Self-Pampering for the Soul. 

Stephanie holds a MFA in writing, has taught creative writing at The New School University in New York City, and academic writing at Temple University in Philadelphia, and is currently faculty in the Writing Program at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. Her short fiction and non-fiction work have appeared, or is forthcoming in Hunger Mountain, Shadowbox Literary Magazine, For Harriet, Woman2Woman Magazine, and the Huffington Post, among others. Her TEDx Talk, The Myth of Male Dominance, is a compassionate examination of gender and behavioral responses to oppressive cultural constructs with an invitation for healing for both men and women.
