Claudio Vargas Silva, MS, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in San Jose
I have a passion for helping couples. I have thousands of hours of experience helping couples and I have many stories of success. I teach couples communication skills that will help them to listen with compassion, speak with respect and problem solve. I also help couples to be vulnerable and express their most tender feelings without fear of being rejected.
Nearly half of couples divorce and only 15% of them are happy. Most relationships can be saved if they seek help. There are abundant resources nowadays to help couples. An experienced and competent therapist specialized in couples can help you to not only save your relationship, but also be happy and satisfied.
When you choose a therapist, you want to be sure that this person is well trained and competent to help you. For this reason, I have spent many hours and resources taking courses and attending to training to be well prepared to help couples, parents and children.
