Even though loneliness is a personal topic - it’s widely universal.
Sylvia is doing last revise on her book Lonely AF. The moment Dr. Sylvia committed to writing a book about loneliness, she immediately looked like the blonde facepalm emoji. Why would she want to write about her biggest pain point? Dr. Sylvia admits that she spent the majority of her life feeling Lonely AF. However, her book is not about going backwards or staying stuck in the problem. Lonely AF sits at the solution end of loneliness where Dr. Sylvia blends her working knowledge of the complexity of loneliness with her personal lived experiences. Because what is personal is most often universal. Look for her LONELY AF Challenge via her Instagram and website. Sylvia holds a B.S. in Radio Television and Film from The University of Texas at Austin, a M.A. in Counseling Psychology from PacificaGraduate Institute, and a Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy from Nova Southeastern University.
