Linda Trozzolino, PhD
Assistant Professor of Psychiatry- UCLA
Narrative of Services:
Currently I am an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at UCLA, where I lecture and supervise psychiatry residents in the Anxiety Disorders Clinic. This clinic specializes in the treatment of OCD and other anxiety disorders. I have been in private practice in Brentwood for more than 30 years, and have always specialized in the CBT model. I have lectured on the treatment of OCD using the CBT model in the UCLA Anxiety Disorders Clinic as well as at other venues, including continuing education of psychologists, sponsored by the LA Society of Clinical Psychologists and by the Center for the Partially Sighted, Los Angeles.
I received my PhD from the Clinical Psychology program of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles. My APA approved internship was at LAC-USC Medical Center, Los Angeles, where the orientation I focused on was behavioral. My dissertation research topic investigated the efficacy of a cognitive behavioral therapy model as applied to the treatment of ADHD. Throughout my education and practice thereafter, I have specialized in the application of CBT to a variety of disorders, including the anxiety disorders. Numerous workshops deepened my knowledge of CBT as well as my research and practice. As Director of Behavior Modification at Cedars Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, I developed several treatment programs utilizing CBT.
