I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who has been in the helping profession for over 20 years. I’ve worked at assisting individuals gain a better understanding of themselves, while addressing challenges that may keep them from moving forward in life.
My career path has been closely related to self-empowerment through the journey of self-healing. Over the years I’ve served individuals, families and couples with an emphasis on women and young adults. I’ve worked as a Director for several non-profit agencies that empowered women causes, Child Protective services, and Behavior Health Clinics.
My innate gift to organically connect with people in pain and my passion to help others thrive, along with my academic training and professional experiences has afforded me with a unique set of clinical skills to empower others in developing lifelong wholeness. I am a personal witness that everyone can change.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!

I have been seeing Dr. DeSilva for almost a year. She listens to me, offers me advice and guidance, and allows me to express myself without judgement. She is honest and always provides me with hard truths that I need to hear. I continue to learn new things about myself and am appreciative for the help and support DeSilva continues to provide me.
Falaya took time to understand exactly what I needed from our sessions. She listened, responded to me with empathy, and challenged me to see what I needed to see and grow. I'm so glad I connected with her.
Falaya is the most incisive therapist I’ve ever had. As a result our sessions are very productive and I’ve seen immediate results in the areas that concern me most. She is tremendously empathetic while also being able to cut through a lot of the noise I generate.
I really enjoy talking with Falaya and think she gives me excellent advice and strategies for coping. I feel I've made huge strides with her in the last 6 weeks!
Falaya is experienced and intuitive. She keeps our sessions moving along in the positive and meaningful direction that I need. She is giving me the guidance I need to assist me in living my best life and I would definitely recommend her to anyone seeking guidance toward self improvement!
She watched me cry, she quietly listened, she made me laugh, and she helped me smile. The road to feeling content can be long and winding, but Falaya walked with me and made sure I was never alone. I'm truly happy now and I'm not sure I would have found my happiness without Falaya and her guidance.
Falaya has genuinely guided and helped me reflect on myself and my environment. Through these sessions, I have been able to grow and overcome each hardship as it comes.
My sessions with Falaya have truly help me as a person and recognize so much about myself. She's a true lifesaver and I would highly recommend her!
Falaya is a wonderful listener and a gentle guiding hand. She holds me accountable and encourages me to be a better version of myself.
I have been having sessions for a couple of weeks and I have noticed a change within myself. Falaya does her best to listen and formulate a meaningful sessions.
She's very sweet and understanding. I feel really comfortable opening up woth her and she is very helpful
