Michael Stephen Oden, MA, Coach, Counsel, Consult, Author, Marriage & Family Therapist Intern in Redondo Beach
Are you or a loved one suffering from drug or alcohol addiction.? Is it tearing your family apart? Our program can help you with Addiction, Anger Management, Childhood Trauma, Relationships, and Perceived Roadblocks. I focus on the client's needs at the time he/she is consuming illicit drugs and demonstrating an unwanted behavior. Learn to live "DRUG FREE and at PEACE" with your past. Counselor, Speaker, Life Coach, and Award-winning Author. Don't live in fear of your past or allow the past to affect your present and future. Think to be Different
I focus on the "why" an individual started their self destructive behavior. Having 8500+ interviews with emotionally affected clients over the past 15 years, I help make sense of when chemical dependency or anger has become a survival mechanism. Live a happy, peaceful, drug-free life without anger or violence.
The Needs Based Method® is a therapeudic modality developed by me which I have been using on my clients since 1998. With this modality I have been able to achieve an 85% success rate. There is no blaming, shaming or labeling.
