He received his Bachelor of Science degree Cum Laude from SUNY Brockport in Brockport, New York. He was awarded both his M.Ed. in School Counseling and his Ph. D.in Educational Psychology, with an emphasis in counseling psychology, from Northern Arizona University.
Dr. Mitchell has practiced in the mental health field since 2002. He most recently worked as Director of Behavioral Health at the North Country Family Health Center in Watertown, New York. He is a Vermont state licensed psychologist. He is well versed in the treatment of many psychological conditions including: anxiety, depression, ADHD, oppositionality, and the challenges of parenting difficult children. He also has extensive experience working with military families. Dan is trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Cognitive Processing Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Cognitive Behavior Therapy, empirically supported approaches to the treatment of depression, anxiety, and trauma. Dr. Mitchell also is well versed in teaching mindful meditation as a means of stress reduction.
“I have been waiting a long time to work at UVM Health Network- Central Vermont Medical Center, a medical facility I consider cutting edge,” Dan said. “I am excited to be working with Integrative Family Health medical director Dr. Jeremiah Eckhaus to create a model of care that integrates behavioral health services directly into the patient work flow. For the patient, this means he or she can see a psychologist during their appointment with their primary care provider. This can reduce the hardships of travel and taking time away from work, school and family and will result in a more collaborative and holistic approach to mental health and wellness.
Dan loves the outdoors and looks forward to gardening, hiking and cross country skiing.
