My name is Stephanie Laborge, and I am a Registered Psychologist working with youth and their families in the Calgary and Okotoks area. I love working with children, and am honoured when asked to partner with families to uncover solutions and answer questions about learning and development.
I have experience in private settings, as well as working directly within the school system, conducting psycho-educational assessments and providing counselling and support to children and adolescents, along with their families. Some of the areas that have I helped families with include:
- Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Learning disabilities (reading, writing, math)
- Intellectual disabilities
- Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- School refusal
- Social skills
- Anger management
- And so on…
I received my Master of Education in School and Applied Child Psychology from the University of Calgary, and am registered with the College of Alberta Psychologists, as well as a member of the Canadian Psychological Association. I have received a post-graduate certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) from Wilfrid Laurier University, and have additional specific training for OCD, Exposure and Response Prevention (E/RP), anxiety, trauma, non-violent crisis intervention, risk assessment and suicide intervention.
In addition to being a registered child psychologist, I am also a mother of three beautiful children who constantly keep me on my toes, and often serve as my motivation to continue to learn, grow, and better myself as a person and as a professional.
I am passionate about working with individuals and families to better understand their cognitive and learning profiles through the assessment process, and look forward to helping your child launch to their full potential.
