Welcome to John A. Loraas, Ph.D., PA

Dr. John Loraas, Ph.D., is a Minnesota Licensed Psychologist. He specializes in Child/Adolescent, Young Adult, Adult, and Family therapy and assessment. He has worked in the field for over 25 years. 

When you call Dr. Loraas’ office, you will likely speak to the Office Manager—Arlene. Arlene has worked with Dr. Loraas for almost 9 years, and she can often answer the questions you may have about appointments, billing, insurance, and so forth. 

Dr. Loraas is committed to providing you effective, confidential, personalized services, using the most current methods. He is focused on understanding the concerns of his clients, and assisting them with finding solutions, gaining relief, and bolstering their insight.

Dr. Loraas views himself as a consultant to assist you through life stage transitions and in confronting and coping with life crises, building on your strengths and resiliencies.

If needed, Dr. Loraas will work with you and your family, your medical team, your child’s teachers, or other relevant individuals that you deem important in creating the results you want.

Dr. Loraas believes that effective therapy must fully involve you in the planning process, and he will work with you to chart a course in creating the results you desire. While Dr. Loraas’ approaches are generally focused on rapid results, he also recognizes and has a long clinical work history addressing the more complex, long-standing issues that may require longer term psychotherapy.
