Brooke Sanderson, PsyD
Owner and Licensed Psychologist
Hi! I am the owner of Sanderson Psychological and am a licensed Psychologist. I received my undergraduate psychology degree from Penn State University, and I graduated from Carlow University with my Masters of Science degree in Professional Counseling, as well as my doctorate in Counseling Psychology. After being in a solo private practice for a few years, starting Sanderson Psychological has been one of the great blessings in my life. I work with hardworking, amazing people, and I am so proud of the work we do, and the business we have built.
Throughout my time as a student, I had the opportunity to work with many college students (of many different ages and of many diverse backgrounds) while completing practicum hours at California University of Pennsylvania’s Counseling Center and Carnegie Mellon’s Counseling Center. I also completed an APPIC accredited internship at Cleveland State University’s Counseling Center.
I have helped people who have struggled with anxiety, depression, psychosis, self-esteem issues, relationship issues, sexual identity concerns, personality disorders, thought disorders, grief and loss, parenting concerns, trauma, sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse, substance abuse and dependence, addictions (gambling, sex, internet, video games), self-harm behaviors, suicidal ideation, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, spirituality concerns, abortion concerns, sleep issues, family conflict, couples issues, infidelity and divorce, chronic pain issues, ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, and behavioral issues in children.
I am passionate about working with new mothers, and I also love helping parents navigate the difficult, amazing, and confusing journey of parenthood. I also have a special place in my heart for working with adolescents and the LGBTQIA+ population.
Outside of work, I enjoy being with my family and friends. I love to be active and enjoy running around with my little boys, but I also love to stay up too late binge-watching TV shows! I am an animal and nature lover and believe that snuggling with pets can cure some of what ails you <3
