Hi! My name is Sirena and I'm a Licensed Independent Social Worker. I graduated from Ohio State with my Bachelor's Degree in 2008, from Capital University Law School with my JD in 2011, from Ohio University with my Master's in Social Work in 2014 and from the University of Cincinnati with my Master's in Healthcare Administration in 2019. Since then, I have practiced extensively with a variety of populations. I primarily work with adults, and have a lot of experience in trauma processing, couples work, and working with those who have both mental illness and a history of substance abuse. I have worked with teenagers and families, couples, individuals, LGBTQ, the elderly, and those with complex treatment needs. I believe in developing an integrative and collaborative relationship with my clients that is built on mutual trust and respect.

Sirena has been a wonderful counselor. She listens well, provides time for reflection, and gives specific solutions to the struggles between my partner and me. I would 100% recommend her to anyone who is having relationship struggles.
She has been so warm and easy to communicate with
She’s what I needed and was looking for. Has a professional approach and at the same time delivers and caters to you in a firm and friendly disposition. Thank you sirena
Sirena is hands down the best counselor I have had in my entire life. And this is saying a lot considering I have been in counseling off and on for the better part of 30 years. I also used to work as a counselor so I would like to think I know a good counselor when I meet one. I have been talking with Sirena for almost 6 months and I can honestly say that the personal improvements I have made in that short amount of time is beyond impressive. And these have been really big changes, life-changing changes that I have been putting off for years. Just 6 months with Sirena and I found the strength, the resources, and the voice I never knew I had.
She's been great!
Early days, but Sirena has so far assisted us to talk openly about issues in our relationship which has helped me immensely.
In depth exercises and worksheets helped us gain a lot of understanding. Thank you Sirena.
She is a good listener, very personable, and great at coaching through my situation.
