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...

January 5-9

February 9-13

March 9-13

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 days.

Feel free to call or email with any concerns, questions, comments, or suggestions. All input is welcome—Warmly, John C. Friel, Ph.D.
