She/Her/HersLicensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
Sylvia Currie is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in Naples, FL. Sylvia’s expertise lies in helping clients grow their self-worth and feel confident about who they are and how they live. Many of her clients seek therapy because they no longer recognize themselves, as they’ve made a habit out of people-pleasing. They want help with setting boundaries, both for themselves and others. They might also suffer from depression or anxiety, especially when facing a major life transition like a relationship change, new workplace, or move to a new place.
Sylvia strives to empower her clients to prioritize themselves and their happiness. She teaches clients how to become aware of instances of people-pleasing and instead replace them with authentic, healthy behaviors. As a strengths-based therapy, Sylvia shows clients that they all have innate strengths that can be used to reach their mental health goals. With unconditional positive regard, she also encourages clients to practice self-compassion and build these practices into their daily lives.
Sylvia earned a Master’s degree in Social Work from Florida Gulf Coast University. She enjoys nurturing clients’ senses of self and helping them see the attributes that make them unique and special. She provides a nonjudgmental space for clients of all identities and backgrounds to talk about their feelings and identify what’s holding them back from living joyfully and authentically.
