Martin J. Silva, MA 2016, is a trilingual licensed psychotherapist, spiritual counselor, writer, and singer-songwriter. His work in this world is about supporting people's paths toward health, wholeness, and meaning. He accompanies people going through different processes of emergence, crisis, and self-inquiry.
In his practice, Martin draws from Western, Eastern, indigenous and nature-based approaches to health. He uses techniques such as embodiment practices, mindfulness, meditation, reiki, bioenergetics, as well as elements from depth psychology and transpersonal psychology, to help create a container of self-love, compassion, and grounding for a safe exploration of our inner worlds. Honoring his Peruvian-American heritage, Martin is also called to serve as a bridge between these cultures. He provides preparation and integration counseling to people interested in spiritual tourism and entheogenic experiences.
