Dr. Lucie M. Taustine, Ph.D.'s profile picture
Psychoanalyst, New York


My approach to understanding people is grounded in diverse psychoanalytic and psychodynamic theory; I believe in both conscious and unconscious motivations for our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Since not all patients want or need the same type of treatment, my skillset includes: psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, therapeutic hypnosis, holistic approaches, integrative treatment, humanistic, and existential modalities. My practice is fully remote.

Therapist Overview

I believe that we are all much more similar than different. We all want and need many of the same things… self-respect, respect from others, security, love, safety, an internal sense of power and self-efficacy, to know we matter in the world. Within our sameness, though, the spark of uniqueness is what sets us apart, and that flame needs to be fanned and nurtured. I am a straight cis woman, a loud and proud LGBTQ+ ally, a staunch BLM supporter, a social liberal, a vegan and animal rights activist, and a believer in science. My patients may or may not share my belief system, and I remain respectful of others’ positions. My world is populated by a gloriously diverse tapestry of people, and I am steadfastly supportive and encouraging of individuality. My goals for my patients include relief of their symptoms, deeper understanding of themselves, and increased comfort in their lives. I am honored and humbled by the faith and trust my patients place in me, and work assiduously to continue to deserve it.
