Is anxiety your constant companion? Are you experiencing gender dysphoria, struggling with your sexual orientation, and/or have a sense that everyone else gets it but you don’t? I can help you discover the answers to these questions and more. My specialties are: Anxiety Disorders, LGBQ and Transgender issues associated with transitioning and Asperger’s Syndrome. For 30+ years I have helped people from all walks of life discover and manifest their most authentic selves and achieve their intentions. I see clients in office and by Telemed. If you choose video counseling, I find it to be equally effective as face-to-face sessions.

My specialties include LGBTQ + issues, depression, anxiety, trauma, anger, food issues, ADHD, personality disorders, gender issues, relationships, & life transitions.
Therapy offers a chance to learn new ways to cope with emotionally charged challenges in life & process those things in life that keep us stuck. In our sessions, I'll help you identify & challenge self-defeating patterns that leave you stuck, unsatisfied, & less than your best. We'll develop a plan based on your needs & what you want out of therapy. I offer a supportive, nonjudgemental space for you to reflect, process, & grow. My approach is strength based, interactive, & collaborative, & I believe that authenticity, respect, & a sense of humor all contribute to a strong therapeutic relationship.

Hey, there. I'm Zach (he/him). Chances are, if you're here, you've found yourself at a point in your life where you want, or perhaps need, to make a change, even if you don't quite know what that change is yet. That's alright. A good therapist is like having a trusted guide by your side to help you figure out the best path forward and to ease you through the harder spots. I'll help you figure out where you need to be, plot the best route to get you there, and support you every step of the way. If the story of your life isn't what you think it should be, let me help you rewrite it in a way that better fits.

Way to go, you have taken the first (and often the most difficult) step towards emotional growth and self-discovery! For most individuals emotions are so much more than "happy", "sad", or "mad". Navigating the complexity of those thoughts, feelings, and emotions alone can be quite a daunting and overwhelming task...that's where I come in. I'm Taylor Callais-Rusich and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Lafayette, LA. Therapy is a process of self-discovery where you, as the client, can have a safe space to allow your true self to explore without fear of judgement.

I specialize in anxiety, depression, life transitions, grief & bereavement, relationship issues, and LGBTQ + issues.
Deciding you want to come to therapy, finding the right therapist, and going to that first session with them is a stressful process. It can be hard to know what to expect. It's not easy to open yourself up to someone that's basically a stranger. I know this, and that's why my first goal when I meet any new client is always to create an environment where they can feel completely comfortable being exactly who they are. Together we will walk through your struggle towards a future that inspires hope.
