John Otte

PsyD

Dr. Otte is a clinical psychologist who has been practicing in the Denver area for coming up on 30 years. His specialties are addictions and mood disorders, specifically Bipolar Disorder. In the past few years Dr. Otte has worked to integrate spirituality into his therapeutic approach, trying to combine the therapeutic value of the 12 steps with a psycho-dynamic orientation. Dr. Otte brings a warm, irreverent, and compassionate approach to therapy with clients. He will tell you that, even after 30 years, he still loves therapy and continues to learn from the people he works with. Most of all, Dr. Otte is awed by the power of the human spirit and believes that all people, no matter how injured, can, with a little willingness, be healed and live happy, productive, fulfilling, and healthy lives. He is very excited to join the Valiant treatment team.

“Watching people change and get well is the most beautiful and stunning process in the universe. I am continually humbled by the beauty of the people I work with; their courage, honesty, and most of all, their spirit. It leaves me speechless – which is hard to do”.
