Dr. Cynthia Florin, MD

Originally a New Yorker, I received my medical degree from the College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University in New York City, and completed my residency training in Psychiatry at Yale University. After 5 years on the clinical faculty at Yale, I moved to St Louis, Missouri as a faculty member in Psychiatry at Washington University, and pursued Psychoanalytic training at the St. Louis Psychoanalytic Institute. I began in private practice in 1996 and have been selected by my peers as one of the "Best Doctors in America" for 20 straight years.

We may decide to pursue psychotherapy alone, or a trial of medication. We may decide that a combined approach of medication and psychotherapy might be most effective.
