What I Do?

Dr. Mitchell Harris is a registered psychologist who has been in outpatient private practice since 1985. A native of New York, and long-time resident of California, he has recently relocated to Ontario with his Canadian wife.

Dr. Mitchell has extensive clinical experience and has worked within multiple settings and with a wide range of clients – including in hospitals, college and university student health centers, child and family counselling centers, veteran treatment centers, and immigrant detention facilities. As a result he is skilled in working with many different mental health issues and life situations. At Bayridge, he currently focuses on working with adults, couples, and families facing both traumatic and more ordinary stresses in life. He also likes to help those who wish to integrate their spiritual life with their psychological healing process.

Dr. Mitchell specializes in healing trauma, using Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprogramming (EMDR) which is a powerful tool to treat not only trauma, but addictions, anxiety, depression and many other challenges. It can also be used for performance enhancement in business, entertainment, and sports.

Dr. Mitchell has also provided clinical supervision to doctoral psychology students, Critical Incident debriefings for traumatized employees, human resource consultations and pre-employment evaluations for businesses in his community, forensic services and expert witness testimony for courts, consultation and education for pastors and their congregations, inpatient group therapy in psychiatric hospitals, and psychiatric emergency evaluations at local general hospitals.
