Lingyan Yu, M.A.

Mental Health Practitioner and Doctoral Practicum Trainee

Lingyan is PhD student in clinical psychology from the University of Minnesota, and Lingyan is at Natalis as a doctoral psychology trainee. Lingyan received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Washington University in St. Louis.

Lingyan has an integrated approach to treatment and believes clients will not be served fully unless they are taken as a whole person plus their past experience and current environment. Lingyan value identifying strengths, locating resources, and building cognitive-behavioral skills with clients, and particularly enjoys working with adolescents and young adults. Lingyan sees emerging adulthood as an important life stage of transition, stress, and development, and a critical period for risk detection and early interventions. Lingyan’s goal is to promote the internal and external resilience of clients to help resolve or reduce the burden of mental health and maladaptive behavioral patterns early in life. Lingyan has experience working with clients with depression, anxiety, identity-based stress, safety concerns, and psychotic symptoms.

Lingyan is practicing under the supervision of Dr. Lisa Johnson, PsyD, LP, LMFT and sees clients at the University Avenue location.
