Yunjing (Chloe) Lin, M.S., MHC-LP

Therapeutic Style: My therapeutic style is informed by psychodynamic, relational and existential theories. I view therapy as an opportunity to access difficult and unexamined feelings, develop insights into how systemic and familial experiences contributed to our suffering, and explore ways to make peace between different parts of ourselves and the world. I strive to arrive with my most attuned and authentic self in sessions and create collaborative therapeutic relationships in which students feel safe to challenge and be challenged by the therapist.

Professional Interests: My areas of clinical interest include interpersonal relationships, grief/loss, identity development, body image issues and mood disorders. As a bilingual (Mandarin/English) therapist, I also enjoy working with international and multicultural students. I am interested in the ethics and politics of mental health, as well as incorporating expressive writing in the therapy process. Before coming to Syracuse University, I completed my internship in the college counseling center at the University of Rochester, where I facilitated a process group for international students.

Educational Background: I hold a bachelor’s degree in Humanities Major: Interdisciplinary Studies in Culture from Scripps College, and a master’s degree in mental health counseling from the University of Rochester.
