Katerina Fager, Individual and Couples Counseling,  Marriage Counseling Semillas Counseling, PLLC

Katerina Fager, LCPC,

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, State of Illinois # 180012423 , Divorce Mediator.


I specialize in Couple's Therapy and am pursuing the Gottman Therapy Certification and utilize this approach in my work with couples.  Sessions are focused on strengthening specific tools to deepen the friendship and intimacy in your relationship as you learn to productively manage and resolve conflicts.  I gently support each partner in their ability to discover new vulnerabilities and appreciate each other’s strengths.


I have over 6 years of experience in treating adults, children, and families from diverse backgrounds. In addition to couple’s work, my clinical focus also includes anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), relationship challenges, and adjustment difficulties.  She is a trauma-informed therapist and has training in Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy.​ 


Services are available in English, Polish, Czech, Slovak, Serbian, Croatian and Bosnian.
