Decades ago, as a newly minted psychologist, Dr. Mitchell made house calls to senior citizens who were too disabled to come to the office for therapy. At that time she discovered that she was able to connect quickly and easily with people of a much older generation, and she enjoyed working with them. She also discovered that they had a wealth of life experience that they generously shared with her. She felt fortunate to have access to this information, and was able to use it in all areas of her practice over the years. Dr. Mitchell went on to work with people at every stage of the life span, and developed a special interest and expertise in working with young teenagers and with assisting their parents to develop more effective parenting skills. Dr. Mitchell has always reserved a place in her heart for older adults, and now that she is herself a senior citizen, she had been able to make easy connections with our residents.
Dr. Mitchell received her Master’s in Counseling Psychology from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, California, and her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne, Florida.
