Welcome to Rod Louden, Psychotherapist

People are loving Monster Relationships!



"Rod Louden has helped me take the monster from within me, and shove him back under the bed where he belongs!"

--Jeff Nimoy—Emmy Award winning writer/producer/actor


"Wonderful book! Rod's ability to attune to the reader is fantastic. His use of metaphors is golden, and his authentic and genuine care for the audience is heartfelt. Read this!"

--James J. Sanders, LMFT, author of I Already am What I  Want: a letter from you to me. 

"The  book taught me many things about myself that I didn't know--ingrained  patterns and habits from my past relationships that needed to be changed  or completely eradicated. I believe that the lessons I learned from  Monster Relationships will stay with me throughout my life and will  improve my future relationships immensely."

--Dean Paul Burton - Author of Dreams Descending 

"Monster Relationships:  Taming the Beasts that are Killing Your Relationships is inspiring and  provocative. It makes you think! You are encouraged to visit places in  your psyche that will test your commitment to yourself, and to your  growth as a person. It doesn't promise you a magic wand. Instead, it  shows you ways to achieve positive life changes that will help you  create loving and lasting relationships." 

-- Brigitta Gregory, Ph.D., Life Coach and Teacher. Author, Get Your Relationships Right: Inside and Out. 

"A  unique and imaginative book for anyone who has ever wondered why they  have experienced so many failed relationships. It is also a rare  opportunity to understand relationship counseling from the perspective  of how Rod Louden would work in a therapeutic setting as your  relationship Tour Guide. So, what are you waiting for? -- It doesn't get  any easier than this." 

-- Richard Greene, Psy.D., Marriage and Family Therapist, Director, Abuse Prevention Associates

"Once  I Started reading Monster Relationships, I couldn't put it down. It led  me to answers that two years of therapy failed to produce. It was an  incredible weekend of therapy that touched my heart and soul." 

--Deborah Green, Executive Assistant


"Monster Relationships:  Taming the Beasts that are Killing Your Relationships is an insightful  look into the dynamics of how people enter into relationships--and why  they fail to create a lasting one. Rod Louden has presented a new way to  view oneself. His use of metaphors, personal experiences, and his  unique writing style makes Monster Relationships an easy and enjoyable  read. If you're looking to break away from your past and have the desire  to create a new positive, and lasting relationship, Monster  Relationships is a must read." 

-- Joe Lotta, M.A., Marriage and Family Therapist, Supervising Children's Social Worker, Los Angeles, California.

"Monster Relationships blew  me away! I've read Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, and other  self-enlightenment books in an attempt to improve my life journey. While  I enjoyed these writers, Rod Louden took it to an entirely new level.  He took me on an amazing journey across what he calls the 'Emotional  Desert.' Along the way, Mr. Louden gave me easy to understand metaphors,  and helped me to focus on how to make positive changes in my life. I  realized that the journey which he asked me to take with him was one  that I was already on, but did not know how to put into words." 

-- Stephen Gomez, Youth Guidance Counselor
