Professional Experience

Dr. Lin is a counselor educator who joins the Counseling Department at the Lally School of Education in 2017. Walking from a multidiscipline background, she believes that cultural and social contexts play important roles in individuals’ development and wellbeing. Therefore, she makes sure she incorporates these social/cultural factors in working with people from diverse backgrounds and in teaching and supervising next generation counselor-in-training. Lin hopes that she can bridge counseling research and practice to help people in need through their own life voyages in this complex world.

Before joining the College of Saint Rose, Lin taught several courses and supervised Master-level students at the University of Rochester.
