Ross Rosenberg, M.Ed., LCPC, CADC, CSAT, is a psychotherapist, international speaker, best-selling author, and professional trainer, considered an expert in the fields of codependency, trauma, narcissism, gaslighting, and sex addiction. His work on codependency, narcissism, trauma, Self-Love Recovery™, and his "Codependency Cure™" has earned him international recognition. The Codependency Cure reformulates, redefines, and ultimately renames “codependency” to “Self-Love Deficit Disorder™." Other original theories/concepts, like the “Relationship Compatibility Theory,” “The Ten Stage Self-Love Recovery Model,” “The Observe Don’t Absorb Technique,” and many others, have reshaped what we know about codependency and trauma recovery, narcissism, dysfunctional relationships, and narcissistic abuse.
Ross's first book, “The Human Magnet Syndrome: Why We Love People Who Hurt Us (2013)" has sold over 70K copies and is published in French, Spanish and soon, Czech. His latest book, "The Human Magnet Syndrome: The Codependent Narcissist Trap," a complete re-write of his first HMS work, was published January 15, 2018. His YouTube channel, with more than 10 million video views/105,000 subscribers, has established him as a global phenomenon.
Ross owns Clinical Care Consultants, a multi-location Chicago suburb counseling center, and the Self-Love Recovery Institute, an educational company promoting personal and professional development. He has traveled to 30 states and twice to Europe to present his workshops. Ross is regularly featured on national TV and radio and also blogs/writes for several prominent online publications.
Ross has one son and lives happily in a northwest suburb of Chicago.
