Our Story

Grow Wellness Group was founded by Adam Ratner, LCSW, MBA and Wendy Hayum-Gross, MA, LCPC in Naperville, IL, with a mission focused on two fundamental objectives: 


– providing our clients with the best care possible


– and, ensuring that every clinician at Grow Wellness Group is highly experienced, compassionate, empathic and passionate about the services we provide.


From the very first day of our founding, we made the decision to create a more intimate therapy and counseling environment where we intentionally prioritize our therapists and clinicians well-being with a focus on continuous education and skills development. This approach allows and motivates our therapists’  to provide the best client experience possible with our wonderful group of counselors, therapists, psychologists, psychiatry providers and sports psychology specialists.

We also made the conscious decision to operate in a way that incorporates and benefits the community we live in. We continue to provide pro-bono community workshops for mental wellness education and tools at events, schools, religious establishments and local non-profits, including NAMI, Little Friends and Beyond Sport – to reduce the stigma associated with mental health challenges and to provide resources to help. We seek to make the biggest impact possible in improving the lives of those who live in our community and we are always open to more opportunities to increase that impact.


Our offices are designed to be serene and relaxing settings to ensure that clients are comfortable and at ease. From the warm greeting when you arrive, to the coffee and tea bar, to the cozy couches and amenities in our private offices, we invite you settle in and begin your journey to greater healing, resilience and empowerment.


We invite you to visit us at our west suburban Chicago office in Naperville, Illinois, 200 E 5th Avenue, in the historic Kroehler Manufacturing Building, just steps from the Naperville Metra Station.  We also provide telehealth visits for those who desire an online connection.
