Hi! My name is Simone Zeschuk and I am a registered Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with 9 years of systems counseling experience working in both the US and Canada.
My family and I moved to Austin, Texas in 2012 and it has been my joy to call Austin my home. Prior to our move, I was employed as an independent counselor in the Canadian social system where I had the privilege of working with adolescents, adults, couples, and families who presented with a variety of concerns, including; addictions, eating disorders, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, parenting difficulties, anxiety, depression, relational difficulties, and psychosis.
My experience working through my own pain and hurt invoked a passion to want to help others. After a very long journey of academia, I graduated from Loma Linda University in Loma Linda, CA with a Masters in Science in Marital and Family Therapy in 2006. From there I embarked on the road to pursuing my passion which led to working with teens, couples and families for Alberta Mental Health in Alberta, Canada. I then moved on and was employed with Fraser Health Authority in Abbotsford, British Columbia as a Family and Group Therapist for the Early Psychosis Intervention Program. It was at this point where I left counseling for a period of 6 years to concentrate on my other role; a mom and moved to beautiful Austin. Here I began the humbling journey to gain licensure in Texas and began training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy; a theory of practice that I have embraced both personally and professionally.
In my free time, when I'm not working, you can find me spending time with my 3 daughters, at the gym hitting the weights, or relaxing with my husband and 2 puppies. I love to travel and learn about different cultures. I consider myself to be a very open, kind, and genuinely compassionate individual and would be honored to work with you!
