Laura Bickle Psychological Services has been in operation since 2006 and has been maintained solely on word-of-mouth referrals from the many parents, teachers, school administrators, and physicians that have come to trust our service. As the practice has grown over the years, we have decided to create this website to make access to our services more efficient for our clients. The brief descriptions below are designed to help you get to know our experience and credentials.
Laura Bickle, M.A., C. Psych.
Laura is a registered Psychologist with the College of Psychologists of Ontario. Laura is registered in Clinical, Counselling and School Psychology, with children, adolescents and families as her client groups.
Laura received her B.A. (Honours) from Queen’s University (1999) and her M.A. in Psychology from the University of Waterloo (2003). Laura worked for Child and Adolescent Services at Grand River Hospital for a number of years before taking a position with the Waterloo Region District School Board in 2008. Laura began her private practice in 2006 and has become known for her warmth, compassion, and down-to-earth style in working with children and families. Laura has received a reputation for providing high quality assessments and for writing reports that families and schools can understand and work with to help children reach their potential. She has also become well-known for assessment and treatment of autism spectrum disorders.
“With two children of my own, I know that there is nothing more important in the world than your child’s health, happiness, and success. I treat every child that I see with the same care and respect that I would want for my own children. My job is to figure out what a child’s strengths and struggles are so that we can make sure we are doing everything we can to support that child’s needs. I do this job because I care about kids. Simple!”
At Laura Bickle Psychological Services we are dedicated to the growth and development of psychological services in our community. As such, we offer training opportunities for senior Ph.D. students in local graduate programs in psychology and for individuals completing their supervised practice requirements for the College of Psychologists of Ontario. All clinicians still in training work under the direct clinical supervision of Laura Bickle.
