My goal is to create a space in which students can feel comfortable discussing challenging experiences and relationships, build resilience and learn how to cope, and develop their own individual identity. I hope to make this a collaborative experience, one where we can engage in problem solving and exploration around all aspects of personal and professional development, while also sharing in some laughter.
Dr. Silver received her Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology from La Salle University in Philadelphia, PA, completed her pre-doctoral internship at the University of Delaware’s counseling center, and completed her postdoctoral training at Temple University in Philadelphia. As she has worked primarily with college and graduate students, Dr. Silver is passionate about young adult identity development and helping students work through anything that accompanies building a healthy adult trajectory. Dr. Silver works from an integrative theoretical orientation, primarily consisting of interpersonal, emotion-focused, psychodynamic, CBT, and DBT interventions, as she feels treatment must be flexible and tailored to each individual client. She also enjoys taking a positive psychology approach, utilizing strengths-based interventions or humor to help students build resiliency. As a bicultural and bilingual (English and Japanese) clinician, she appreciates the importance of one’s background in developing one’s world view. In her free time, Dr. Silver enjoys exploring new food opportunities, staying active, listening to country music, and watching football and hockey.
