Hi there, I'm Silva!

Hello. I'm Silva and I have 18 years of experience working with teens and adults. I enjoy supporting and guiding individuals in their healing journey.

My approach

The approach I use is mindfulness-based therapy. This is an evidence-based treatment that integrates meditation techniques and Eastern philosophies with Western psychology. I will help you understand the root of your current struggles to heal your inner child's wounds so that you can live a more authentic life.

My focus

My focus of practice is helping individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, or a history of childhood trauma.

My communication style

I will help you by listening with curiosity, compassion, and without judgment. With some guidance and support, you can gain clarity and inner peace in order to live the life that YOU want.

My journey to mental healthcare

I will guide you through various exercises, including but not limited to brief meditations, role-plays, and visualization exercises in order to heal the wounds of your inner child. Once your inner child feels seen, heard, worthy, and loved, you will begin to live a more authentic life. The goal of therapy will be for you to feel more inner peace and your most authentic self.

My goals for you

My first session with you

In the first session, we will get to know each other and determine if we are a good fit for your healing journey. I will share with you more about my approach and will answer your questions. We will explore what brings you to therapy and ways in which I can support you in your healing.
