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.

Dr. Cerfolio addresses mind, body and soul with expertise, knowledge and compassion. I felt seen for the first time ,without judgment, which made it easier to accept my treatment plan. Dr. Cerfolio also administers medication conservatively , which works well for my constitution. I wholeheartedly recommend her for assessment, treatment, and therapy.

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.
