Licensed Psychologist PSY 27863

John Rettger, Ph.D. received his doctorate in psychology from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology in Palo Alto, CA (now Sofia University). His training background is diverse in that he has worked with children, adolescents and adults from a range of backgrounds who were working with challenges such as anxiety, depression, trauma, life meaning and spirituality, as well as other existential concerns.


Dr. Rettger specializes in combining evidence-based treatment methods (e.g. Cognitive- Behavioral Therapy or Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) with other contemplative traditions such as mindfulness and yoga-based practices and psychodynamic interpretation while holding an Existential-Humanistic and Transpersonal perspective. He applies state of the art treatment interventions and addresses your concerns from a Holistic (Mind-Body-Spirit) perspective.
