Torey Troggio, MD
Child, Adolescent & Adult Psychiatrist and Co-founder of SportsPsychMDs
Former standout bench warmer for his high school baseball and football teams, Torey brings the steady "glue guy" approach to the SportsPsychMDs' team. He completed his undergraduate and medical school at Indiana University (Go Hoosiers!). Moving from the cornfields of Indiana to the expansive terrain of southern California, Torey found connection in not only the abundance of activities the region has to offer (snowboarding, cycling, bodysurfing, hiking), but more importantly, connection to the people. Working together with people from diverse backgrounds within Los Angeles County, Veterans Affairs (VA) and UCLA has allowed Torey the opportunity to better understand the specific struggles certain groups face. This understanding fuels connection and allows him to become a better psychiatrist and advocate for equality and justice. He draws upon these experiences along with his training in child and adolescent psychiatry to emphasize an all-encompassing approach to mental fitness--from getting to know an individual in relation to their background and environment, to providing educational tools and facilitating community engagement. In his clinical practice, Torey emphasizes skill building, mindfulness and therapy in addition to medication management.
