"As a counselling art therapist, I promote self-empowerment and build autonomy with my clients. Creating art is like a bridge to my subconscious, so I look for creative ways to help others express and understand better what they are going through by working with the creative forces within them. Central to my practice, I aim to be known as an authentic counsellor, valuing cultural and identity diversities, providing unconditional support, whilst holding a safe space for my clients as they head towards living a life with meaning and purpose."

Linda Lin

 

Education
 

• Adler University: Masters degree in Counselling Psychology: Art Therapy

• Simon Fraser University: B.A. in Health Sciences

Advocator for mental health and wellbeing, I work with the narrative therapy model, transforming problem saturated stories into stories of hope and possibility. I am also deeply rooted in existential therapy, encouraging others to develop self-awareness, connecting the body, mind and soul.

Counselling Experience

Facilitated art therapy open studios and workshops around the Lower Mainland. Counsellor for undergraduate students at VFS. Works with children to adolescents with special needs.
 

Hobbies

"I am a huge animal lover, and living a low-waste sustainable lifestyle. In my downtime, I would probably be drinking tea lattes while adding details into my art pieces. I am always reading and learning to be as competent as I can for my clients. "
