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.Read more

I’ve been in treatment with Dr Cerfoilo for almost a year now and she has helped me tremendously. I feel very lucky to have found her.

Dr. Cerfolio is both compassionate and knowledgeable!
in Brooklyn, NY |
When I began working with Nina I was completely phobic regarding the drugs that could possibly help my depression (what if they made things worse). With patience and encouragement offered in a compassionate and altogether rational approach she brought me through this challenge and basically cured my depression. That was 1994. She has subsequently been there for me over the years when I needed adjustments or just perspective on life's other challenges. She gives excellent perspective.

Dr. Cerfolio says...

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.
