CENTRE FOR ADVANCED ASSESSMENT

Claire Sira, Ph.D.

Registered Psychologist

Dr. Claire Sira completed her Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree in Clinical Psychology with a specialization in Neuropsychology at the University of Victoria in 2007, having completed a predoctoral internship in these areas at the Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary, Alberta. She has completed numerous comprehensive neuropsychological assessments and provided the reports of these assessments to lawyers in order to assist the court.

She has a particular interest in assessing the neuropsychological status of high achieving individuals who have sustained a brain injury. These individuals have highly developed and varied skills, which present additional complexity when attempting to document their remaining strengths and areas of potential diminishment that could affect their ability to return to work. Dr. Sira is a registered psychologist in BC (CPBC #1837), and her clinical office is located in Victoria, British Columbia.
