Ms. Silva is certified in EMDR and is a consultant-in-training through the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA). She served many years in VA Connecticut's PTSD Residential Rehabilitation Treatment Program before transitioning to a senior role in the outpatient PTSD and Anxiety Firm, where she continues to be involved in the education, supervision, and delivery of evidence-based psychotherapies for PTSD.
