Efren Olmos is a life counselor and addiction specialist with over 12 years of experience working in the treatment industry. Efren has extensive experience working with young and middle-aged adults struggling with life transition issues and addictions. He has trained with clinicians and coaches from all over the United States, many of whom are specialists in the field of addiction, life coaching, and Neurofeedback.
He has a 28 year “career studying addiction” from the first-person perspective, and a 12- year journey of active recovery that has taught him the valuable “first principles” of what it means to be emotionally healthy, what it means to “succeed,” and how to overcome challenges. In terms of more formal education, Efren studied at Pierce College earning his credential in addiction counseling.
He’s currently studying at the Ryokan School of Psychology to bolster his life experience with academics.
Efren currently serves as the lead addictions and neurofeedback counselor at PCI Westlake Centers, a treatment center and institute of mental health research located in Westlake Village and Malibu, California. He sees addiction as a complicated situation of struggling with feelings, beliefs, behaviors, relationships, and other aspects of living, not just a “disease.” In this view, he sees “recovery” from addiction as an integrative process of learning new ways of seeing the world, trying new ways of living, working, relating, and taking care of oneself.
He integrates what the U.S. Surgeon General calls the “Brain Disease” concept of addiction and affect dysregulation with social psychology and 12-step recovery principles. This process encourages his clients learn to try as many new “perspectives on living” as necessary to grow. Most importantly, because most people have a desire to grow, Efren focuses on how to help clients, regardless of their particular problem(s), move from a mindset of “crisis” or “problem-based thinking” to a mindset of “solution” and “solution-focused” thinking.
