Are you looking to heal from past hurt or trauma? Do you feel as though your past makes it difficult to be fully present in the here-and-now? Hard to adjust to new settings and situations? Worry about the stigma of mental health? If so, you’re not alone.
Dr. Silas works primarily with adolescents and adults, including those within the military and public safety and service populations. He has a particular interest in the areas of PTSD, trauma and loss. His interest in this field came about after losing his sister to homicide in 1992. It was at that point that he vowed to not only heal himself through therapy, but to help others who experienced similar losses, and to prevent others from going down that violent path. He grew up in a military family, which explains his fondness for the military population. Overall, his goal is to make you as comfortable as possible while giving you helpful tools to alleviate and heal symptoms.
Dr. Silas has extensive experience in how trauma impacts every aspect of life, often being the basis for many diagnoses including anxiety, depression, and sleep disorders. He utilizes an integrative, holistic approach for each individual. He believes that establishing the mind-body-spirit connection is vital in your recovery.
