045: Take care of yourself first with Eric Connor

Better Leaders Better Schools guest Eric Connor is a clinical therapist with advanced training in trauma resolution, sexual addiction and other compulsive behaviors.  He seeks to use modern technology and evidence-based approaches to facilitate healing and growth.  He has a Masters in Computer Science from the University of Chicago and earned his Masters degree in Counseling from National-Louis University.  Eric is a CSAT therapist and is EMDR trained.
Eric believes that our brains and emotional selves will always seek healing and growth given the opportunity.  The more we discover how this happens, the more effective and efficient therapy can be.  He is a frequent speaker on the topics of shame, codependency and addiction.
Additionally, Eric coaches individuals looking to change career paths or find more rewarding work.  As co-founder of Flank 5 Academy, he has helped dozens of people reevaluate their desires and goals in order to pursue compelling and meaningful vocations.
Despite his technical focus, Eric still believes that the relationship between therapist and client is of the utmost importance for effective counseling.  He understands that love, trust and compassion are absolute prerequisites before any true transformation can be accomplished.  Eric considers it a privilege to be a part of this process.
