Collaboration & Competence in One Place

Our Deepest Fear

By Marianne Williamson

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frighten us.

We ask ourselves Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.

Your playing small… Does not serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine, As children do. We were born to make manifest
The glory of God that is within us.

It’s not just in some of us; It’s in everyone.

Dr. Camille Payne MPH, MSN, APRN, PMHNP, FNP, DNP Nurse Practitioner

As a board-certified Nurse Practitioner with a background in Family Medicine, Psychiatry, and Public Health, Dr. Camille Payne is well-acquainted with the challenges of care delivery in the United States’ healthcare landscape.

As many of her patients have come to appreciate, Dr. Camille has a lighthearted manner in caring for her patients but knows that getting the best health outcome is serious business. She is thoughtful, has many insights, and takes a “solution-oriented” approach in getting her patients on the road to wellness by “partnering” with them in their care.

Dr. Camille received her Doctorate in Nursing from Quinnipiac University in Connecticut. She has expertise in Primary and Urgent Care and worked extensively as part of the Surgical Oncology Specialties and Psychological Medicine Service at Yale-New Haven Health. Dr. Camille has also worked in caring for patients with extensive behavioral and psychiatric histories at other agencies. As a longtime proponent of the cause of under-served populations, and bridging inequities in health, Dr. Payne deepened her commitment several years ago by becoming a healthcare provider dedicated to helping her patients become better consumers of health. Her work broadened in sharing that passion for caring with future generations of nursing students as part of her role in academia.

Her research interests explore the needs of vulnerable populations; factors of human error-making and implications on patient outcomes, health policy and advocacy.

Dr. Camille has also participated in health missions to Central America, and volunteers her time in various church and local community outreaches educating attendees on preventive health topics in Hartford & New Haven Counties and as requested nationwide.

In being #Intentional #Deliberate & #Purposeful, Dr. Camille through her non-profit work and community service efforts works to raise up future generations of leaders through mentoring youth across various socio-economic backgrounds to help them sparkle and shine!

“And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others”
-Marianne Williamson

She is a Theophilus, travel enthusiast, and all-around family woman who enjoys throwing down with family & friends, trying her hand at various cuisines.  Her favorite verse is “…And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” – R828
