Tori Silvati, M.A.


University of Indianapolis

Professional Interests

In general, I have enjoyed working with adolescents and emerging adults as they transition to college by helping them understand their values, beliefs, and intersecting identities. Although I enjoy working with college students who present with a variety of concerns, I have a great passion for working with individuals who have experienced trauma. I continually admire their resilience, perseverance, and vulnerability, and am honored to be a part of the healing process.

Theoretical Orientation

First and foremost, I draw on aspects of client-centered therapy and strengths-based approaches to foster self-esteem and empowerment within each client. I also rely heavily on interpersonal process therapy and psychodynamic theory to encourage clients to reflect on their relationships with others to understand their current functioning.

Personal Interests

Personally, I have realized the intertwined nature of mental and physical health. So, when I am not at work, I focus on different ways to move and fuel my body. I’m a huge foodie so I love trying different restaurants and recipes! Recently, I’ve been attempting to become a plant person, (although I most definitely do not have a green thumb), but I’m working on it! I also tend to spend much time outdoors or reading on my balcony!
