About Dr. Ana Silva

I am a Licensed Psychologist, Board Certified in Clinical Psychology. 

My experience comes from having worked in private practice, hospitals, residential facilities, and outpatient agencies providing psychotherapy to children, adolescents, and adults through individual, couples, and family formats. My specialties include the treatment of eating disorders, depression, anxiety, and personality disorders. Additionally, I also specialize in family forensic psychology.

 I utilize a variety of treatment approaches through the use of Psychodynamic Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), and Family Systems. I also provide therapy fluently in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.

I take a comprehensive, warm, culturally-sensitive, individualized, and collaborative approach to provide a safe environment, where my clients can feel comfortable discussing their life goals.

I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and foreign languages from the University of Miami, in Coral Gables, Florida. I completed my Doctor of Psychology degree at the Nova Southeastern University (NSU), in Davie, Florida. ​

I completed a one-year pre-doctoral internship at the APA-accredited NSU's Psychology Services Center. Through this internship, I gained expertise in working with long-term mental illness, such as Schizophrenia and other thought disorders. Additionally, I worked with individuals and families involved in the Family Court system, by providing psychological and parenting assessments, social investigations, parent reunification, and treatment, through the Child and Adolescent Traumatic Stress Program (CATSP). Following internship, I remained at NSU for a one-year Postdoctoral Fellowship to gain further expertise in treating  long term-mental illness and personality disorders, such as Borderline Personality Disorder. 

Since the completion of my training, I began working with Eating Disorders at the Oliver-Pyatt Centers, in South Miami. I worked extensively with women and adolescent girls who had been diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, Exercise Addiction, and Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID). 

In the past, I served as the Clinical Coordinator of the Crisis Screening & Stabilization Unit at Henderson Behavioral Health and as a Licensed Supervisor at NSU, where I supervised graduate students, as well as served as a Clinical Supervisor at the Faulk Center for Counseling in Boca Raton, Florida where I managed the Co-Located Schools Program.

Currently, I am working at my private practice, where I continue treating eating disorders, long-term mental illness, interpersonal difficulties, personality disorders, as well as working with families involved in the Family Court system.
