In 2011, Dr. Silva founded SD Center for Counseling, a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization developed to provide no cost therapy services to children who are impacted by traumatic events. SDCC’s mission is to help children and their families heal from traumatic events so that the cycle of abuse can end and the path of healing can begin. SDCC integrated San Diego Center for Neurofeedback (established in 2013) and became San Diego Therapy Center in 2022 to provide counseling and neurofeedback. Neurofeedback is a non medication based treatment to assist with physiological self-regulation, psychological resolution, decreasing symptoms, and increasing your functioning for better quality of life. 

Dr. Silva is the Chief Behavioral Health Officer of Fusion Care Group. Fusion Care Group (formerly SD Psychological Services) was opened in 2007 as a group private practice that provides therapy to children, adolescents, and adults to enable them to work through, and grow from, difficult life events. 

In 2006, Dr. Christiana K. Silva was awarded her doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology by the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University (PSY21878).
