About Lynn Min

Lynn Min is licensed in mental health counseling (NY) and  certified in: CBT, IFS, EFT, RTT, Hypnotherapy, Breathwork, Energy Healing, Chakra Alignment, Sound Healing. She says: 

"My promise to every person sitting in front of me is, “You. Make. Sense."

I help people make sense out of themselves through inner justice work, where by reconciling the stories of your past, your present emotions, and your dreams for the future, all the pieces of yourself can belong in profound self-love.  You’re your own healer.  You’re your own drug.  You’re the one you’ve been waiting for.    Combining brain-based psychology, the laws of energy and spirituality, the power of Breath and movement, and plant medicine, I journey with people in "divine therapy" (or deification) -  a process where we radically Presence our human parts to boldly embody divinity."
