More about me
Years in Practice: 7
Do you find yourself asking questions like this: Why can't I ever relax? Why do I lack motivation or confidence? Why do I allow myself to be treated badly by my partners? How do I overcome this anger I feel about the injustices I am facing? How can my partner and I learn to resolve arguments without hurting each other?
I work with people regardless of ability, gender identity, race, sexual orientation and gender identity. I am committed to offering culturally conscious therapy, overcoming bias and stigma with a healing justice framework. In addition, I use a strengths based approach to build upon skills clients already have to strengthen coping and resilience to trauma.
Welcome and congratulations on your commitment to health and healing! No matter what leads you to counseling, there is always hope for a better day. Sometimes finding the right therapist is difficult. I'm Yanlin and I'm looking forward to meeting you! To tell you a little about myself, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I received my Master's in Social Work at Florida State University and since then I have worked with diverse people for 6 years in a variety of settings. Congratulations for taking the first step! Starting with a new therapist can be uncomfortable, but is well worth the time and energy when you find the right fit. Let me tell you a little about my approach to help you make your decision.
First my goal is to build a supportive relationship, which must include safety, trust and acceptance. I believe that therapy must center on you, your strengths and how you define your own needs. I use a strengths based approach to help you recognize your own resources and supports available to help you achieve your goals. I also like to acknowledge the incredible challenges we face in our world today. Our lives are changing so quickly that it can be difficult to know what the future may hold. I am happy to help you stay resourced and grounded to find the path and coping skills that work best for you. Also know that I am open to working with anyone regardless of race or ethnicity, religious beliefs, politics, ability, career related issues, sexual orientation or gender identity.
My experience includes working with adults who may be facing depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, discrimination, substance abuse, relationship issues, codependency, LGBT related concerns and trauma. My approaches include motivational interviewing, mindfulness therapy, reality therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy. In therapy, I always ask how we can build on the strengths to adapt to the circumstances at hand, while identifying barriers that keep you from achieving your goals. Online therapy offers great options for accessibility. I'm willing to offer multiple modalities, but I also work best if we can have live sessions, either through Phone or Video. I believe you will get more out of therapy that way rather than through messaging alone. Anyone can benefit from this type of therapy and we can work at many levels to see you through to reaching your goals.
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
