More about Jonson Job Lin, MD

Dr. Jonson Job Lin got into the mental field for several reasons. When Dr. Lin growing up, it was not the cultural norm to emphasize emotional resilience development. He witnessed the pros and cons of this dynamic, and when he heard about a national shortage of child psychiatrists when he was in pediatric residency training, it was a clear calling to him to shift his career path.

Now, Dr. Lin is a neuroscience-minded child & adult psychiatrist who is trained in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). He understands how negative childhood experiences affect people’s behavior and can lead to addictions. These addictions can be things like playing too many video games, using drugs, or gambling. Dr. Lin works to treat and support these behavioral addictions.

Dr. Lin also offers transformational leadership coaching for mild to moderate brain-based disorders, as well as medication and therapy for modern to severe brain-based disorders. He helps his patients work through unresolved grief to further improve their mental health.

Dr. Jonson Job Lin was drawn to Mindful Health Solutions because of our vision and culture of mindfulness, openness, collaboration, and innovation. He is also interested in doing further research and treating his patients with TMS, esketamine, and other innovative treatments that can improve brain functioning.

Personal Interests

Outside of work, Dr. Lin loves to travel, enjoy the outdoors, and learn about history and different cultures. He also finds it interesting to identify transformational leaders portrayed in movies and world history so that he can share their inspiration with those he cares for. His favorite mindfulness activities include writing poetry, drawing natural landscapes, and practicing meditation with his family. Overall, he loves spending time with his wife and two teenage children, and he bonds with his family through playing the fiddle.


Education & Experience

While beginning his career studying chiropractic sciences, he transitioned to pediatrics while completing a pediatric residency at the University of Medical & Dental School of New Jersey. At Drexel University College of Medicine, he further transitioned his career path to mental health and excelled during his child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship. In 2007, he graduated from the general psychiatry program at Drexel University College of Medicine.  He became a certified cognitive therapist in 2008 and gained experience as an inpatient and outpatient child and adult psychiatrist. Now, Dr. Lin is a psychiatrist at Mindful Health Solution’s Newport Beach clinic.
