    Adult, Child & Adolescent Psychotherapist

    “I strongly believe that one of the key components to thriving socially and emotionally in life is through the relationship we build with ourselves.  I approach therapy as a collaboration, working closely with each patient and their families to uncover underlying barriers impacting behaviors and moods. My treatment is tailored to the specific needs of each patient, but always honing in on my training in Child Parent Psychotherapy, trauma informed modalities, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, dyadic therapy, play therapy, family systems, floor time model, and attachment based theories.

    I am interested in working with children and young adults displaying symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma, and disruptive behaviors.”

    Siuna has been in clinical practice since 2014 in a variety of settings including schools, home, and office based.  She obtained her BA in Psychology and Social Behavior from the University of California Irvine,  and  a Master’s degree in Social Work from California State University of Long Beach.
