Dr. Basria is a very thoughtful, intelligent, compassionate, supportive counselor. She responds in a timely manner, and really connects with you and what you are grappling with. I feel like she really genuinely cares about what I am working through, and is able to hear my complex thoughts and feelings and really understand them. She also provides feedback that is nuanced and that really addresses what I am experiencing rather than simplifying it. I recommend her completely.

I haven’t had much time with Dr. Basria but our first session by phone was great. She really took the time to get to know me to understand and also know exactly what I should work on. The worksheets she sent me have been very helpful. I’m looking forward to our next session.
