The love of my life of for over 30 years is Heidi. We have been blest with three children: Sonja who is married and has two daughters, Wes who is a doctoral student at Carnegie Mellon University, and Linnea who is a college student at St. John's College in Annapolis.

I am humbled by the task of leading the College of Counseling as the Associate Dean. I am overwhelmed with the tremendous faculty, staff and students God has given the College of Counseling. As a faculty team we count it a joy to journey along side our students and watch God work as He transforms students into the people He has made them to be to help transform others by His grace.

One of our family's most memorable adventures was living in Kuwait for the 08-09 school year where we worked for the Kuwait Center for Autism. I served as the staff psychologist, Heidi taught the one English speaking class, and Linnea attended the British School of Kuwait. We love the people of Kuwait and the Center's great work with individuals with autism.

Harvey and Heidi PayneMy wife and I have been involved with various ministries including teaching Sunday school classes, women ministries, youth ministry, marriage classes, and presenting at various seminars and retreats. We currently attend the Columbia Christian Fellowship in downtown Columbia.
For most of my "professional life" I have been a clinical child and consulting psychologist in private practice in Washington County, Maryland and Franklin County, Pennsylvania. My specialization has been in the evaluation and treatment of children for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, autism, learning disabilities, social-emotional and behavioral disorders, developmental delays, and medical-related issues (e.g., pain management, adjustment to chronic illness or acquired injury). I provided agency and staff consultation, program development and staff training for various local agencies, residential facilities and schools. I have also served internationally as a consultant for the Kuwait Center for Autism, the Jeddah Autism Center in Saudi Arabia, and the Oomit Corporation’s development of a center, Green Pastures, for disabled children in Astana, Kazakhstan.
