Denise Otero, LMHC
Welcome, I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Florida. I specialize in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Therapy. EMDR is a psychotherapy that enables clients to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress resulting from disturbing life experiences. EMDR is different from “talk therapy.”. It uses bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements, auditory sounds, or hand tapping, to help clients process unresolved memories from adverse experiences such as trauma.
I hope to have the opportunity to work with you, build respect, trust, and positive change. The journey to self-discovery is a collaborative relationship that I approach with genuine interest, acceptance, and compassion.
I believe that therapy should address the person as a whole, including aspects of mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. I think all clients are unique, and my therapeutic approach is adaptive to each client’s situation.
In my practice, I provide counseling for anger, anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, family counseling, grief and loss, life transitions, marital and relationship counseling, self-image, substance abuse, trauma, and managing work/life balance. I have a passion for working with clients experiencing alcohol use challenges and supporting them as they recover. I work with the client and their support system to heal from the addiction and make better choices in the future. In the past, I have worked in a correctional setting, outpatient counseling center, and inpatient substance treatment centers.
I would encourage you to be brave and take that first step to a healthier and more hopeful you. It would be my privilege to walk this journey with you. There is hope. There is healing. Counseling sessions may be in person at our office in Ormond Beach, or Online Telehealth Counseling is available through a Secure HIPAA Compliant Video platform. I offer daytime and evening appointments to support your busy schedule. If I am not in-network with your insurance, we can provide you a detailed receipt. You may be able to submit the receipt to your insurance for partial reimbursement. It is best to contact your health insurance to ask questions about the behavioral health benefits available to you.
