Ross Rosenberg, M.Ed., LCPC, CADC, CSAT, is the owner of Clinical Care Consultants, a dual-location Chicago suburban counseling center, and The Self-Love Recovery Institute, an educational company promoting personal and professional development. A psychotherapist since 1988, Ross is also an international speaker, author, and professional trainer. He is considered an expert in codependency (Self-Love Deficit Disorder (SLDD)™), narcissism, trauma and sex addiction. Ross’s Human Magnet Syndrome books (2013 and 2018) have sold over 90,000 copies and are translated into five other languages.
Ross’s latest “Codependency Cure™” work, like The Human Magnet Syndrome, breaks new ground in the mental health fields. This groundbreaking work reformulates, redefines, and ultimately renames “codependency” to “Self-Love Deficit Disorder™." His original theories and concepts, such as the “Relationship Compatibility Theory,” “The Ten Stage SLDD Recovery Model,” “The Observe Don’t Absorb Technique,” and many others, have reshaped what we know about codependency, codependency recovery, narcissism, dysfunctional relationships, and narcissistic abuse.
Ross’s trainings, which feature all original work, have been presented in 30 states and twice in Europe and he is regularly featured on TV, radio and online. His educational YouTube videos have been viewed over 14 million times, attracting more than 140,000 subscribers. Ross’s second, best-selling book, The Human Magnet Syndrome: The Codependent Narcissist Trap, is available for purchase on the Self-Love Recovery Institute website.
When You Unmask a Covert Narcissist, RUN, But Quietly!
"I am a social worker at a high school and have worked with Ross Rosenberg for several years. I have referred numerous students and families to him and I have received nothing but rave reviews. Ross is intelligent, compassionate and willing to help clients do really difficult work. I especially think he does great work with gifted adolescent males who are struggling to make sense of their world. I count on Ross to help out my students and families and I feel 100% confident that they will receive the best of care when I make a referral to Ross Rosenberg. He is tremendous."
