About Tarrah B Mitchell

Dr. Mitchell is a Clinical Child/Pediatric Psychology Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Clinical and Health Psychology at the University of Florida. Dr. Mitchell earned her Ph.D. in Clinical Child Psychology from the University of Kansas in 2018, following a pre-doctoral internship specializing in pediatric psychology at the University of Florida Health Science Center. Dr. Mitchell’s research focuses on understanding the bidirectional relationships among children’s physical, psychological, social, and academic functioning (health-related quality of life) and their weight-related health behaviors, such as disordered eating, physical activity, and sedentary behavior. An additional research line focuses on strategies to accurately assess these concepts and behaviors in youth. Clinically, Dr. Mitchell provides inpatient and outpatient services for children, adolescents, and young adults with chronic medical conditions (e.g., diabetes, cancer, inflammatory bowel disease) within multi-disciplinary environments to address medical adherence, adjustment concerns, and psychological needs.
