Looks like you're ready to begin your therapy journey. I am a trauma-informed therapist who works with a variety of clients 12+ who are experiencing 'dips' in their functioning or feeling 'stuck' and ready for some improvement in their well-being! Most of these challenges stem from anxiety, depression, relationship conflict/issues, self-esteem, attachment issues, lack of fulfillment, work/school-place problems, post-traumatic stress, etc. I value an authentic and empathetic approach to the therapeutic relationship to assist in you gaining self-awareness and insight, which can then create changes and make improvements in your days.

The success of the Therapeutic Journey is measured by a person coming through the door to the session feeling uncertain, unsure and directionless but leaving out of the door with an improved sense of confidence, certainty, purpose and direction. Through regular sessions, you will begin to heal and develop a heightened sense of self-awareness. I employ insight-oriented and strengths-based approaches to help guide your journey. The goal is to assist you in eliminating maladaptive behaviors, and altering the patterns that keep you feeling stuck. The journey towards wholeness and wellness begins with a free consultation call.

Empowering you to find your inner strength is one of my main goals as a therapist. I believe that each one of us possess an array of innate strengths that guide us in our lives and help us overcome our biggest struggles. Throughout the session, I will help you build self-awareness and self-esteem, along with the hope that you can break through all the barriers that are holding you back. Building deep connections to the self and understanding our core wounds isn't always easy, but they provide for us the opportunity to heal, grow and reach our full potential. You are most certainly don’t have to go through this alone.

Life is a journey. Sometimes the path is clear, and at times we may encounter twists and turns that can feel difficult to endure and impossible to manage. Maybe you’re feeling sad, lonely, lack motivation and not sure why. Perhaps you find that you worry more than the average person. Perhaps you are coping in ways that aren’t helping such as overeating, excessive alcohol use, or feel like you have nowhere to turn. Whether you’re having difficulty adjusting to a major life transition or just simply feeling overwhelmed, you're not alone. Together, we will identify the areas that are keeping you stuck so you can thrive.

People often come to my practice when their problems seem daunting and discouraging. They have often tried solving their problems on their own but despite their well-meaning efforts still find themselves facing the same problems and repeating the same patterns. If you are reading this, chances are you are either feeling stuck or are in a difficult point in your life. You are in the right place. Therapy can be of great help by helping you pinpoint the issues that need to be worked on and challenging you to make choices that will lead to a more fulfilling life.

Hi, my name is Lin. Therapy is a unique and extremely individualized experience. There is a therapeutic power in being fully seen and understood. Others seem to think you are holding it together and doing good, but sometimes you feel like an imposter. These feelings keep you from forming deep connections with your loved ones, furthering your career, or living your life the way you wish. Having a designated safe space for you to share scary, confusing, or “bad” thoughts can be freeing.

Are you navigating challenges associated with gender identity, sexuality, or relationships and looking for somebody to talk to who understands? Or maybe you are coming to therapy for help with other challenges and would feel more comfortable with a therapist who is part of the LGBTQ+ community. Either way, I am here to provide a warm, supportive, and collaborative space, where you feel safe to discuss and explore the things that are most important to you. It is often difficult to recognize the behaviors or thought patterns keeping us stuck.

Hello, I am a bilingual and bicultural therapist whose goal is to support my patients/clients to feel heard and validated. I want my patients to progress and understand that their diagnosis does not define nor control them.

I graduated in May of 2020, with my Master of Science in Marriage, Family, and Couples, I have been working with patients on a therapeutic level for about 2 years. However, I have worked in case management roles and child protection collectively for over 20 years.

What type of Clifton mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Clifton?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
