Marriage & Family Therapist in Hoffman Estates, IL

Katia specializes in counseling couples & families. Call (888) 870-1775 to arrange for an appointment with her.
I have always been passionate about helping people. My goal in therapy is to create a non-judgmental, compassionate and comfortable atmosphere in which clients can safely explore and work through various feelings, thoughts and beliefs. I believe that anyone can change and better their lives; they just sometimes need a little guidance. As a family therapist I believe in systemic, or relational, therapy and believe that throughout life we exist in a number of relationships that directly and indirectly impact our well-being. Our relationships with family, friends, co-workers and neighbors influence and create our individual experience.
I graduated with a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Northern Illinois University. Prior to that, I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with a minor in Business Administration, also from Northern Illinois University. While in my graduate studies, I completed an internship in a community mental health center working with children in foster care and their families. I also have experience facilitating Partner Abuse Intervention Program (PAIP), Domestic Violence Education (DVEd), Helping Abusive Parents (HAP), and Anger Management groups. I love working with individuals, couples and families on various mental health issues.
I provide individual counseling and couples counseling. You can make an appointment to see me at the Hoffman Estates office.
