“Dr. Silver is a recognized leader in psychotherapy, having been one of the first online therapy businesses in the nation. He is considered a pioneer in telemental health. I have referred clients to him, and have received feedback on how he has helped them get “unstuck” from self defeating behaviors. Aside from his clinical expertise of being certified in CBT and psychoanalysis, he connects with people in an extraordinary way, and has the skills to really understand a client, moving them along in recovery, growth and healing. If you are seeking a therapist that will go beyond the psychobabble to truly help you, call Dr. Silver.” MT.

“I suffer from chronic pain and I am unable to drive. I needed to find help as being isolated at home can take a toll on your morale. After doing a google search for an online therapist, I found Dr. Silver. He advertises that he is available late and he absolutely is! Many times I have emailed him at 9 pm at night and he immediately responds and I have an appointment within the hour. Pain doesn’t exactly give you a lot of warning. He is very engaging and listens. He is straight forward and will tell you in a nice way what he thinks, even if it may not be what you want to hear. He helped me uncover some “blind spots” when it comes to a few relationships. He cares and doesn’t treat you like a number. He follows up and wants to know how you are doing. He’s a good man and if you get to work with him you have made a good choice.” LY.

“What can I say about Dr. John Silver…… Well only that he is the BEST hands down!!!! I came to him well over 20 years ago, a fragile, messed up young adult in need of some serious therapy, and that’s just what I got. He’s a smart, caring, professional, that truly knows his stuff & in my opinion saved my life. Without his help and guidance I don’t know where I would be. Thank You Dr. John from the bottom of my heart.” Rory F.

“Also, I want to tell you how helpful your comments to me about how I’ve been interpreting other people’s behavior. It has really made a difference. This week I noticed feeling happy and not just an absence of unhappiness.” Michael O.
