Lori Aitken MA, LMHC
Lori is the Co-Owner of Anxiety Center of Tampa. The practice is focused solely on clients with OCD and related disorders.
Lori has treated hundreds of clients with OCD and related disorders over the course of her30 year career.
At Anxiety Center of Tampa, all clients are preliminarily screened for the presence of co-occurring disorders as part of the initial phone call and intake paperwork. Where appropriate, clients are assigned to clinicians with expertise in a client’s co-occurring disorder. If the clinician, in consultation with others in the practice, feels that the client’s issues are outside the scope of competency, referrals will be made to other providers.
Lori has close to 30 years of clinical experience; the past 15 of which have been devoted to treating OCD and related disorders.
Lori moved to Tampa in 2017, and worked in Rogers Behavioral Health’s Anxiety and OCD Program before founding Anxiety Center of Tampa.
Lori has completed the BTTI training, as well as advanced training in CBT and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy). Lori now offers Inference-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for OCD (ICBT), a newer, evidence-based approach.
Lori is a long-standing member of IOCDF and is on the Board of Directors of the IOCDF’s Central and South Florida affiliate.
