Your mind races thinking…
What if? What if? What if?
Possibilities of roads not taken – paths you can no longer take echo through your mind.
Why me? Why me? Why me?
So, what now?
All the cards are on the table, and honestly, it still feels a little overwhelming.
What’s the next step?
Friends and family keep suggesting you “talk to someone,” but that’s what you were trying to do in the first place.
It feels like no one even wants to understand.
You finally make an appointment.
You want to live to thrive, not just survive. Unsure of what the process is supposed to look like, you come online, and this might be the first time you’ve ever reached out to a therapist.
That’s awesome! This time is precious. It can be challenging, but so, so rewarding.
Look, I can’t promise you the smoothest road ahead because I can’t tell what’s coming exactly. But I can help you feel more prepared to tackle the more challenging days behind you and the hard days that may lie ahead.
Each client is unique.
Therapy looks a little different for each person that comes in. The issues brought up, the time you stay, the “modalities” the therapist might use vary. What matters is you and what you bring to the table.
Therapy is a collaborative place, unique to any other process.
Think of my therapy room as a safe space to explore the emotions you’ve been unable to elsewhere – either for fear of being judged or for being unsure of how to say it.
I’m not an expert on you. You’re still the expert on who you are. Only you know your experiences, thoughts, and feelings. Still, as an unbiased professional, I can offer you a unique perspective on circumstances and provide a comfortable space to discuss even your most profound thoughts through an online platform.
About Sylvia Currie, LCSW
Helping others is my passion.
I’ve always known I wanted to help folks in some capacity – several of my family members growing up were chronically ill in some capacity.
I’ve met many providers, including therapists, social workers, and medical providers, and the ones that always seemed to take the time were the social workers. It only made sense for me to give back as a therapist.
I’ve lived and worked my whole life in Florida and consider it home. I’ve worked in the mental health and medical fields for over ten years. I have had my License in Clinical Social Work since 2016, after graduating from Florida Gulf Coast University in early 2014.
My life outside of therapy is rewarding.
I’ve recently been enjoying more time in nature, but mostly I’m an indoorsy-type person.
I enjoy science fiction like Star Trek or X-Files. But most of all, I love spending time with my spouse and two cats, Jadzia and Kahless.
