Sia Southern, LCSW is a licensed clinical social worker offering services to children, adolescent and adult residents in California. She has a vast array of clinical interests; however, her specializations are anger management, stress management, geriatric therapy, child and adolescent therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). In her practice, Sia’s counseling style is to be warm, approachable and relatable as well as straight forward, supportive and goal oriented. Whatever an individual may be struggling with, she will work with them to create realistic treatment goals.


Sia was raised in a family of social workers and counselors so choosing a career in social work was a natural progression. Working in the mental and behavioral health field gives her the opportunity to work in a variety of settings and work toward multidimensional collaborative change. She is able to empower, advocate, motivate, connect and encourage resilience, as well as fight discrimination, oppression and injustice.


In her free time, Sia enjoys working out regularly and takes boxing classes, and she loves trips to the beach and all water activities. Additionally, she enjoys travelling - Sia once traveled to 10 countries in 68 days!
