Chicago Tribune Interviews Dr. Kerulis on Pride and Insecurity

Chicago Tribune columnist Rex Huppke had a very tongue-in-cheek conversation with Michele Kerulis, Ed.D., about feeling insecure over Chicago's new Ferris Wheel, which is still smaller than those of other major cities.

“People often wonder about how they compare to others, and that can have a lot to do with self-esteem,” said Kerulis. “We might look at our own Ferris wheel and see that it's not as big as New York's, but that's OK. There are other things that matter.”

Dr. Kerulis is a licensed clinical professional counselor and certified sport psychology consultant. She is also program director of Adler University's counseling specialization in sport and health psychology.
