ND, First-Year Resident
Dr. Silva is a first year resident and clinic supervisor at Bastyr University Clinic.
Dr. Silva is originally from Peru, where her interest grew for natural medicine. She is fluent in Spanish and loves to work in community clinics helping the underserved, especially, helping those whose first language is Spanish. Dr. Silva believes that creating a safe space for patients to share their story is critical to the healing process. Her healing philosophy involves deep listening as well as using more gentle interventions such as homeopathy and craniosacral therapy, but she will use stronger interventions when deemed appropriate. She is a general practitioner who is passionate about helping patients from children to older adults. In her free time, Dr. Silva enjoys salsa dancing, hiking, and spending time with friends and family.
