Rodney Boone, PhD
Director, Cognitive Behavior Therapy Center of Southern California
Narrative of Services:
I am Founder and Director of the Cognitive Behavior Therapy Center of Southern California where I, and the rest of the psychological staff, treat OCD (e.g., obsessions and compulsions related to contamination, order, doubt scrupulosity, and violent and/or sexual thoughts) and Obsessive Compulsive Spectrum Disorders (e.g., Trichotillomania, Skin Picking, Tics, Hoarding, and Body Dysmorphic Disorder). Our treatment for OCD is evidence-based; we utilize "Exposure and Response Prevention" along with a full range of CBT techniques for the treatment of OCD and related disorders. We offer group as well as individual treatment.
I have a wealth of experience working with individuals with OCD- as the treatment of OCD has been a major part of my practice for more than 25 years. Early in my career I received my training from mentors, training courses, and workshops. As an Associate Clinical Professor at the UCLA School of Medicine over the past 15 years, I have presented many training workshops for professionals in both academic and community settings, and, over the years, I have individually supervised the training of many young psychologists and psychiatrists in the cognitive behavioral treatment of OCD.
