Lisa Noble, M.Ed. R.Psych.
From a very young age, I would tell my mom that I wanted to be a psychologist when I grew up.
I always liked the idea of understanding and supporting others, and this career helps me do that every day. To achieve this goal, I first completed my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at the University of Alberta (U of A). I knew I needed to get more ‘life experience’ after this, so I spent several years working with children, adults, and families. I focused my work on strategies to improve functioning for children with Autism. After a few years, I returned to the U of A to complete my graduate degree.
Following this, I worked as a pediatric psychologist at the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital in Edmonton. This gave me more training, experience, and supervision with a focus on family centered care. I was able to gain extensive experience in psycho-educational assessments, clinical diagnostic assessments, learning supports for children of all ages, and early intervention for children with complex medical diagnoses in a transdisciplinary setting.
I gained expertise in the assessment and treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders and Positive Behavioural Supports.
In my private practice, I work in a variety of Early Childhood Settings, providing evidence-based strategies to support children with various learning, social-emotional and behavioural needs. I continue to provide diagnostic assessment for children and adolescents, as well as support families in supporting the needs of their children.
In my personal life, I am married and I am the proud mother of three incredible young boys. We all enjoy adventures and exploring the globe. I use many of my skills as a psychologist in my everyday life with my children and husband to maintain balance and joy. I bring the same energy to the work I do with children and families.
