      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Cerfolio's Care Philosophy

      As a board certified psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, I work with patients in a nonjudgmental, collaborative partnership to focus on constructive steps towards improving emotional wellness. For many years, I've been working with patients to relieve emotional suffering through dialogue, self- exploration, and reflection. In my practice, I use psychoanalytic  and solution based therapies to guide my patients to transcend life challenges and emotional obstacles.

      As a psychiatrist with over 29 years of practice, I have extensive medical training as a consultation/ liaison psychiatrist and postgraduate training as a psychoanalyst. My approach to patient care is empathic, holistic, and individualized. Special interests are in fostering creativity as a way to find relief from pain and suffering.

      Dr. Cerfolio says...

      As a national and international trauma psychiatrist, I have worked with the homeless in New York City, victims of ground zero, refugees of the Chechen genocide, and Nepalese people in the most remote region of Nepal who do not recieve medical care. As part of my humanitarian work, I appeared on WNBC news many times in an attempt to calm New Yorkers' fears due to subsequent anthrax poisoning of the postal workers and other perceived terror threats. My counseling workers at Ground Zero was featured in the Yomiuri Shimbun, which is a Japanese national newspaper and has the largest newspaper distribution in the world. In addition, I co-created "The Grief Relief Network" to allow family members who lost loved ones connect with each other to provide additional emotional support.
