About Lisa Noble
Understanding and supporting others has been a value I’ve held close to me from a young age. Even before I could spell the word, I’d tell my mom I wanted to be a psychologist when I grew up. I see it as a great privilege to be able to assist children and their families to support the needs of their children and bring joy to their family life.
After completing my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at the University of Alberta (U of A), I set about getting more ‘life experience’ working directly with children, adults, and families. During this time I found myself compelled to improve functioning for children with Autism.
After a few years, I returned to the U of A to complete my graduate degree, then worked as a pediatric psychologist at the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital in Edmonton. In this setting, I gained more experience, training, and supervision with a focus on family centered care.
Psycho-educational assessments, clinical diagnostic assessments, learning supports for children of all ages, and early intervention for children with complex medical diagnoses became my focus. I gained further expertise in the assessment and treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders and Positive Behavioural Supports.
Currently, I work predominantly in early childhood settings, providing evidence-based strategies to support children with various learning, social-emotional and behavioural needs. Diagnostic assessments and treatment for children and adolescents is the main focus of my work here.
In my personal life, I am married and also the proud mother of three incredible young boys. We all enjoy adventures and travel. Many of my skills as a psychologist are used in my everyday life with my family to maintain balance and joy.
