"Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced."
- James Baldwin

For more than three decades, Marvin L. Logel, PhD, has treated patients with understanding, skill and compassion in a setting affording emotional safety and confidentiality. By helping patients identify their specific treatment needs, he has assisted them in meaningfully addressing the problems in their lives that have prompted them to seek the services of a professional psychologist.

Dr. Logel has offices in Miami, Florida and Edina, Minnesota and sees patients online in other locales of both of these states. The addresses and contact information for both offices can be found in the Contact Us section of this website.


The first step in the therapeutic process is completion of an initial consultation, which typically involves 1-3 office visits. Based on what is revealed in the initial consultation, we work together to determine the type of treatment that is best suited to the specific problem and to develop a therapeutic strategy that fits within whatever practical constraints may be present in the situation.

This may be short-term psychotherapy focused on delimited problems, or long-term psychoanalytic psychotherapy or psychoanalysis intended to address issues of a more persistent and pervasive nature. In either instance, the objective of the treatment is to facilitate psychological growth through resolution of symptoms and actualization of potentials commensurate with an individual's talents and abilities, and to achieve peace of mind.
