Clips from Ross's Codependency/Emotional Manipulator Seminar:


Ross Rosenberg has over 26 years of experience as a psychotherapist, counseling practice owner, training company owner, nationally recognized professional trainer, consultant and certified addiction specialist. Ross is the author of "The Human Magnet Syndrome: Why We Love People Who Hurt Us," published in April 2013. Ross's work has been highlighted on various TV programs including, ABC Late Night, Fox News, WGN News and UT-San Diego News. He has appeared in the Chicago Tribune & Publisher Weekly and is a regular contributor for The Huffington Post and

Ross owns Clinical Care Consultants, a full-service counseling center based in the Northwestern suburbs of Chicago. He is a national seminar speaker consultant, and expert psychotherapist in the areas of codependency, sex love addiction and internet addictions, trauma, dysfunctional or problematic relationships, narcissism and borderline personality disorders. The training that inspired his book, "Emotional Manipulators & Codependents: Understanding the Attraction" was hosted in 27 states/60 cities in a two year time span. Ross now owns the Chicago based training company, Advanced Clinical Trainers.

Over the span of his career, Ross has counseled individuals who struggle with substance abuse, addictions, and co-addictions / codependency. His addiction work includes chemical addictions (drugs/alcohol) and process or behavior addictions (sexual, Internet, gambling, and spending). His addiction services include counseling of all types, assessments, clinical supervision / professional consultation and training. He is considered an expert in the field of sex and Internet addictions, for which he provides comprehensive counseling services, trainings, and consultation.

Ross is well known in the local community for his work with hard-to-reach and oppositional adolescents. Typical issues with his adolescent clients include Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADD / ADHD), drugs/alcohol, school challenges, anger control, eating disorders, self-mutilation, communication problems, and family struggles. His work with teens also includes a family/parent focus, whether it is coaching, counseling / psychotherapy, or support.

Ross's work spans problem type, culture, ethnicity, gender, socio economic status, and sexual orientation. Some areas that he specializes in include Marriage/Marital Counseling, Addictions, Codependency / Co-Addictions, Depression, Anxiety, ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), Challenging Teens, Grief and Bereavement, Trauma Survivors (PTSD), Marital and Family Conflict, and LGBTQ issues.

Ross's counseling / psychotherapy work with Codependency has enabled his clients to achieve balance, mutuality, and feelings of respect and appreciation in their lives. Balancing the care of others with the equally important ability to care for oneself is the cornerstone of codependency counseling / psychotherapy. His codependency services include individual, family, couples and/or marital therapies.

Ross's work with adult survivors of trauma and abuse enables his clients to break free from lifelong self-destructive patterns. His healing approach addresses "original wounds" (trauma of the past) which, without resolution, perpetuate emotional pain, suffering, and unsatisfying and dysfunctional relationships. This type of trauma counseling / psychotherapy promotes positive / healthy relationships, a heightened sense of well-being, and feelings of safety, control and happiness.

Another service provided is counseling and coaching for clients with ADD/ADHD. Ross provides assessment, diagnostic and a full range of ADD/ADHD psychotherapeutic services. His collaboration with family members, physicians, school, and employment personnel creates a greater opportunity for success in the treatment of this disorder. Other ADD/ADHD services include coaching, which addresses the following challenges unique to this disorder: communication, organization and follow-through, relationship and family challenges, work demands, and school demands.

Grief, loss, and death and dying are difficult issues that Ross helps his clients work through. Whether it is the loss of a loved one, job, lifestyle, or one's health, vitality and even life, he guides his clients through difficult and often heart-wrenching times. Embracing diversity / cultural competence is a cornerstone of his practice.

Ross's counseling / psychotherapy services enable his clients to achieve balance, inner peace and feelings of personal efficacy. He believes that, "within a warm and respectful therapeutic relationship lies the power to overcome seemingly overwhelming obstacles."

Ross's counseling / psychotherapy style has been described as supportive, solution focused, analytical, and educational, while also being warm, intuitive, healing, spiritual, and compassionate. His spirituality and metaphysical understanding enables him to reach people with diverse religious and spiritual beliefs. Ross believes that "for every problem, there is a solution; and within the safety of a trusting and respectful therapeutic relationship lies the power to overcome the most seemingly overwhelming obstacles."

Seeking an oasis of freedom and hope?
Ross Can Help
"If hope and happiness always seem a tomorrow away,
If too many days end in sadness and a lack of fulfillment,
If your heart and your mind speak different languages,
If love of self and others seems to be beyond your grasp,
If you live in a desert of sadness and loneliness,
but seek an oasis of freedom and hope, I can help."
-- Ross Rosenberg
