Hi there, we are Claudio & Tricia !

In 2019, we met during a training program for therapists who wanted to become certified in emotionally focused therapy. Claudio invited Tricia to join him in conducting workshops for couples. In 2020, we started recording a video podcast for couples struggling with the stress of being stuck at home due to the pandemic. In 2021, we facilitated the first Hold Me Tight workshop for couples. After that, we started the Thriving Your Love podcast. We always have new ideas for supporting couples, families, and individuals to have happier lives and relationships.

Some Facts about me

WhatsApp Image 2024-01-09 at 16_edited.j


I have been classically trained as a lyric soprano since I was in my early twenties. One of my hopes is to put on a cabaret show in the near future.


I am currently working on a grief and loss autobiography, interviewing 6 close family, friends and colleagues who have lost a parent, and also capturing my own story of this profound loss. This project is in dedication to my late father who died suddenly at the age of 61 yo of a heart attack.


I have loved all things Disney since I was 4 years old and a proud Magic Key Pass Holder. You can be confident I have seen the latest Disney movie and intimately know great tips about both Disneyland and DisneyWorld.


I love cats and am a proud Fur Mama to Loke (13), a  Flame Pointe Siamese rescue, and Mocha (10), a beautiful black tabby rescue. I also take great delight in learning more about your fur children and/or your human children 🙂.

Meet Claudio Silva !

I greatly appreciate your interest in knowing more about me and how I can help you. I am passionate about helping couples, families, children, and youth. I have invested much of my time and resources in learning to better support these populations. I am certified as an emotionally focused therapist to help couples, families, and individuals. I am certified as an EFT supervisor to help therapists learn the model. I am trained in child-centered play therapy (CCPT) which is a modality that helps children through play. I'm also trained in filial therapy (FT) to help children and parents connect  through play. I give the How To Talk So Kids Will Listen workshop based on the best-selling book written by  Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish.

Some Facts about me


As a child, I dreamed about being a concert pianist. I have worked for many years as a musician and piano teacher.


I studied theology and I worked as an evangelical pastor before moving to the U.S.


I meditate every day for one hour. This helps me to be more aware of my feelings and to help my clients.


I participate in a group supervision of therapists who show recordings of our sessions to learn from each other.
