“The feedback from the patients that Lynn treats was very positive with respect to his clinical skill. At least one patient and maybe more said they receive more benefit from one or two sessions with Lynn than they had previously received in many sessions with prior therapists. This is quite a compliment to Lynn which I have seldom heard regarding any therapist”

“Lynn’s knowledge of both psychodynamics and psychopathology is excellent. He has consistently demonstrated the ability to assess, diagnose and plan treatment in a comprehensive and efficient manner. As a therapist Lynn is sensitive, energetic and spontaneous, with an approach that empowers his patients to deal with their most difficult challenges. In addition, he is willing to extend himself and does not hesitate to advocate for the needs of his patients when it is warranted.”
