My name is Dr. Manreet Riar, PhD, registered psychologist (#3011) with the College of Alberta Psychologists. I live and practice in Calgary, Alberta, and I have over 22 years of experience in the field of mental health.
I have worked in community & treatment settings. For the past 15 years, I have worked as director of an intensive residential treatment facility with a non-profit agency.
I strongly believe in the
vast potential of humankind.
I am committed to providing ethical, evidence-based and effective treatment services. My practice provides psychological assessment & treatment of children, youth, and adults, and is family focussed. My approach integrates diversity and a multicultural framework.
My clinical practice entails the use of:
Cognitive Behaviour therapy
Solution Focussed therapy
Applied Behaviour analysis
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR)
Neurosequential Model of Therapy™ (NMT)
NMT is a way to organize a child’s history and current functioning. It is a clinical framework which includes a developmentally sensitive way of organizing a child's history and current functioning while being mindful of the impact adverse events & trauma have on the developing brain. It was developed by Dr Bruce Perry of the Child Trauma Academy in Houston, TX, and I am trained and certified in the NMT approach.
