About Me

Hello, My name is Dr. Ambreen Basria and I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have specialized in working with relationships, family conflict, depression, anxiety, and other mood related disorders. I work from a solution focused approach and am here to help you discover ways to resolve the issues in your life. My approach includes working with you to develop these solutions, and solutions that you feel comfortable implementing into your life. I am here to support you through your journey and achieve your life goals.

I have a Bachelors in Public Health Policy from the University of California, Irvine, a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Loma Linda University, a certificate in Drug and Alcohol Counseling from Loma Linda University, and a Doctorate in Applied Clinical Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, Irvine. I have worked with high risk children, adolescents, families, and adults in the community setting, forensic setting, outpatient setting, and the inpatient setting. The diagnoses I have worked with have ranged from severe childhood schizophrenia, to depression. I have worked with mood disorders, anxiety disorders, LGBTQ issues, and a variety of other issues.

My goal in couples counseling is to help you and your partner work better together, explore attachment and sexuality related areas of your relationship, and provide support and guidance on leading a happier and healthier life with each other. I use a variety of different philosophies such as John Gottman and the 7 principles to making a marriage work, as well as Emotionally focused couples therapy to assist couples in developing their relationship. If separation is the goal, I work with partners to reduce conflict and address areas of co-parenting.

Dr. Basria never passes judgement and makes us both feel heard and understood. Dr. Basria is responsive, professional and most importantly to us, open-minded. She made us feel safe talking about our sex life. When appropriate she would suggest a call to help facilitate the discussion so it never felt like we couldn’t have the traditional counseling experience.
