Nicolina Calfa, PhD

Dr. Calfa is a licensed psychologist offering counseling services for adults, with a specialization in health psychology. Dr. Calfa helps clients understand how psychological factors significantly influence their health, including physical illnesses and stress, and aids them in coping with the impact of medical issues on their daily lives. She provides health interventions for individuals coping with acute and/or chronic medical conditions such as headaches, diabetes, gastrointestinal problems, chronic pain, and cystic fibrosis.

In addition to her work in health psychology, Dr. Calfa also maintains a strong interest in treating clients experiencing anxiety, panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression, and situational or chronic stress. Dr. Calfa works with individuals coping with relationship issues, adjustment to significant life changes or losses, and reproductive concerns (including primary and secondary infertility, and use of fertility treatments).

Dr. Calfa’s therapeutic style incorporates cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, and family systems approaches. She incorporates relaxation techniques, including biofeedback, in her work with clients to improve mood regulation and stress management. As a warm, compassionate therapist, Dr. Calfa creates a safe, neutral therapeutic space within the context of a collaborative relationship for each client.

Dr. Calfa received her doctoral degree in counseling psychology from the University of Texas at Austin and master’s degree in counseling from Arizona State University.
