Adam Russo, LCSW, works with clients of all ages who face many difficulties, including mood instability, acting out behaviors, adjustment disorders, family conflict, PTSD, legal issues, and social withdrawal.

As a seasoned speaker and author, Adam has presented to hundreds of schools and organizations throughout Chicagoland. His keynote TEDx speech The Importance of Failure conveys a different perspective on success, and the message is customized for student, parent, and educator audiences. He is also the author of Unwritten Rules: Real Strategies to Parent Your Child into a Successful Adult, available on iBooks and Kindle.

Adam also puts a strong focus on giving back to the community. He served as Chairman of the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce (2016-17), and is a member of numerous committees that focus on helping kids grow into adaptive and independent adults, such the Council for College and Career Readiness in Naperville District 203.

In addition, he works with the Illinois Association of School Workers about how to best motivate, discipline, and challenge young people so they thrive in their adult life.
