Dr. Juanto Laver has a special interest in identity issues, relationship concerns, depression, anxiety, phase of life concerns, and pain management. He is also highly interested in psychological testing and can administer and interpret a number of psychological tests. This includes but is not limited to; ADHD-evaluations, personality testing, and learning disorder evaluations.

I primarily see therapy as a collaborative effort in which I and my patients together explore how we can create meaning of what is ailing them and how to best respond. I do not see myself as the expert; rather, I see the patient as the expert and myself as a collaborator and fellow human being.


Dr. Nils-Erik (Nils) Juanto Laver received his PhD from the University of North Dakota in 2013. He became a licensed psychologist in 2014. He currently lives in Fargo, ND, with his wife.

In my spare time, I enjoy watching classic movies, reading, working out, and spending time with my wife.
