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:
- Anxiety disorders
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Learning disabilities
- Intellectual disabilities
- Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
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.
