Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

When I began sessions with Dr. Zinn, I was struggling with high levels of anxiety, resulting in panic attacks, depression and deep seeded resentment towards family members. Dr. Zinn, with his excellent listening skills and unique therapeutic methods was able to help me separate the powerful emotions that were overwhelming me. In my sessions with Dr. Zinn, I learned how to recognize, separate and manage these emotions. I no longer felt overwhelmed and found the peace I longed for. -Joan

Dr. Zinn is professional and very caring. He helped me through a very tough time and used encouraging helpful techniques that made a huge difference. I couldn't have gotten through this time without Dr. Zinn's help. I worked with Dr. Zinn a long time so I got to know him well. He was exactly what I needed to heal and grow. Thank you so much!!!!!!

I have known of Dr. Zinn's since 1987. He truly is a GODSEND to me, my husband & family. He has guided us through the trials & tribulations that have come our way. In 1987 Dr. Zinn helped me cope with the tragic death of my brother in a motorcycle accident. In 1989 I witnessed death and distruction after a massacre in a foreign land...I suffered (what would now be known as PTSD.) He saved me from giving up. Dr Zinn is a LIFESAVER. Today, he continues to help and guide all of us

He has no professionalism. What I mean by this is he doesn't attain the ability to remove himself from siding with clientele. He is vindictive and a liar. This is coming from personal experience in dealing with him. He shouldn't be dealing with any family members, especially any high conflict or divorce, separation matters with children involved.
