Kari Ayoroa LCPC, LPC, CIMHP
85% of my clients are diagnosed with OCD, 15% of my clients are diagnosed with anxiety and/or depression.
I have been treating adolescents and adults with OCD for the past 15 years, utilizing my training in CBT for OCD, ERP, Mindfulness, and Solution Focused Therapy.
I was born in South Africa and lived between there, the US, and in different parts of Africa until I was 18. My background with cultural diversity and the relevance of that continues past my childhood and into my practice as a clinician in Kentucky, marrying into a Latino family and now living in the DMV area.
I have extensive training in cultural competency, but more importantly I have experience with many different cultures within my practice. From growing up in Africa to marrying into a Latino family to the community mental health work in rural Kentucky, I have many varied and unique experiences that allow me to not only be sensitive to the unique needs of others but able to understand the journey that we are all on.
