A special message to our Minneapolis clients, past and present...regarding our transition to our Reno/Tahoe Office and Residence...
Linda and I have conducted our Minneapolis
Psychology Practice continuously for the past 35 years
since we began in 1982—the majority of our professional
lives. It has been a challenge and a joy for us
throughout those many years.
As many of you are aware, we have long been amibivalently toying with our dream of relocating permanently to the Reno/Tahoe Area, where John can continue to maintain his private practice there while also having more time for him and Linda to enjoy their empty nest years together.
We will always offer telephone consults on a
regular basis, as needed, for our clients.
John wil be offering our
3-1/2-day Clearlife Clinic Therapy Intensive at
least twice a year in our Reno, Nevada Office, as soon
as we arrange the appropriate space in our current
Kietzke Lane Office Building.
John will also be physically present
at our Minneapolis office for 4 days
each month. I will be leasing space
from a colleague in the beautiful 1926 Art Deco Loring
Medical Building where we have been located for many
years. My 32-year-long men's therapy group will meet
Mondays once per month for 3 hours from 5-8 pm so that
each member will get adequate group time monthly to do
his work. The fee for this group will be $100.
To begin this experiment, John will be available for client sessions in January, February, and March for individuals, couples, or families, in 2, 4, 6, 8, or 12-hour sessions, family reconciliation sessions, and other personalized service combinations, including 8-12 hour weekend intensives with individuals, couples, or families who live locally, or who fly in from other parts of the U.S.
The specific times and openings for my schedule are listed below...
Friday 4-9 pm
Saturday 1-9 p.m.
Sunday 1-9 p.m.
Monday 2-9 p.m. (men's group will be from 5-8 p.m.)
Tuesday 11-3 p.m.
Out of respect for the very compressed time periods available to see me, I will expect that you will not make an appointment unless you are definite about keeping it. I will require a 36-hour (3-day) advance cancellation policy for each appointment hour, and if not honored you will be billed the full fee for that session. For blocks of time larger than 1 hour, the cancellation window will double for each additional hour. It is the only way this could ever possibly work for me and you.
This is, of course, an experiment for all of us.
As long as it remains financially feasible, I will keep
my Minneapolis practice open once per month for those 4
Feel free to call or email with any concerns,
questions, comments, or suggestions. All input is
welcome—Warmly, John C. Friel, Ph.D.
