Amreeta Gill, PsyD

Dr. Gill is a Clinical Health Psychologist at Psychiatric & Psychological Specialties. She obtained her Bachelor’s degree from the University of California Riverside, a Master’s degree in Psychology from Pepperdine University in Los Angeles, CA, and subsequently her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the APA-accredited Wright Institute in Berkeley, CA. She went on to complete her APA-accredited Pre-Doctoral Internship in Health Psychology at the Baylor Scott & White Hospital System, an award winning nationally recognized Level I Trauma Center in Texas. Her diverse training experience spans from treating patients in medical settings such as hospitals, primary care clinics, and governmental agencies, to working with children, families, and geriatric populations in schools, community mental health centers, and assisted living facilities.

Dr. Gill’s approach to treatment is integrative and heavily influenced by Third-Wave Cognitive Behavioral Therapies and the Biopsychosocial Model, which lend to viewing the human experience through a holistic lens and incorporating mindfulness practices to aid in symptom reduction. Her focus remains upon understanding individuals through their unique cultural and social experiences, providing care that is best suited to their strengths and values. Dr. Gill believes that treatment should not only address symptoms, but also serve to deeply expand an individual’s understanding of their difficulties. Through a patient-centered collaborative approach, she works to empower those under her care through meaningful psychoeducation, coping skill instruction, and the development of insight related to interpersonal relationships, thought patterns, emotions, and behavioral trends.

Dr. Gill works with individuals throughout the lifespan who have difficulty with depression, anxiety, emotional regulation related to trauma, life transitions, complicated grief, interpersonal difficulties, acculturation issues, and stress related to complex medical conditions. Additionally, she has significant experience with both psychological and neuropsychological evaluations related to intellectual and learning difficulties, psychiatric disorders, treatment planning, and medical surgeries such as transplant and bariatric evaluations.
Furthermore, Dr. Gill strives to conduct all of her therapeutic interventions through a culturally-informed lens and is also able to effectively provide services fluently in English, Hindi, and Punjabi.
