I am here to be with you and listen to you.

My name is Wini Lin. I am an Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapist, and a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and an associate member of the Canadian Association for Spiritual Care (CASC).

I hold a Master of Pastoral Studies (Buddhist stream) from Emmanuel College, at the University of Toronto, with a Certificate in Spiritual Care & Psychotherapy.

My training consisted of working with different populations at Scarborough Health Network, CAMH, Baycrest, and Southwest Centre for Forensic Mental Health Care.

My Story

I am a first-generation immigrant from Taiwan. I moved to Peterborough, Canada, to pursue my undergraduate degree when I was 18. Through immigration, I gained a depth of experience that helped me to understand human nature better, and especially how important it is to have meaningful connections with self and others. More specifically, I became aware of my core belief: It is essential to take care of one‘s spirit. I nurture my spirit by connecting to nature, creativity, animals, loved ones, and my Higher Power.

My training focused on spirituality-integrated therapy, which aligned with my belief system. I had the privilege to participate in two years of clinical practicum experiences at a variety of hospitals, which reinforced my beliefs, as I encountered many clients who suffered from searching for meaning and purpose in life, and through various experiences to find their own identities. Throughout my program, I also developed skills in applying techniques from various evidence-based modalities of psychotherapy. With these skills, I could be present with clients, listen to what they would like to share, and support them in ways that they find comfortable and effective.

With my personal and clinical experiences, I realized my professional identity and role in providing care to clients ⎯ Metaphorically, I view myself as a walking stick that accompanies wounded individuals on their healing path.

If some of my experiences and beliefs resonate with yours, I would like to invite you to connect with me to see if we are a good fit to work together.
