Licensed Psychologist (Founder-CEO)
Dr. Ailyn Payan, Psy.D. is a Licensed Psychologist with eight years of experience offering therapeutic services and psychological testing. She was born in Havana, Cuba, and at a very young age, she and her family moved to the cold winters of Ontario, Canada, where she struggled to find her own identity in a highly diverse multicultural society. When she was yet an adolescent and through her early experiences, she found her passion in psychology and sought to become a psychologist which she achieved when she moved to Miami, FL and founded Mindful Amity Psychological Services. Dr. Payan graduated with Distinction from Albizu University, formerly Carlos Albizu University, and specializes in children and adolescents. It is a common misconception that a child that receives treatment is often seen on an individual basis. Dr. Payan works closely with every child’s family to ensure positive treatment outcomes and best results. Despite her love in working with children, she has extensive experience helping adults with a variety of difficulties. Dr. Payan has attended numerous trainings to enhance her knowledge in the field of psychology. One of these trainings included an Infant Mental Health Program led by local and national experts in the field which allows her to work as an Infant Mental Health therapist. Dr. Payan is further interested in strengthening positive relationships and reducing the negative impact of emotional psychological abuse in children and adults.
