Dr. Brooke Dean Ph. D.
Hello! I am a practicing licensed Clinical Psychologist (SC 753,) based out of my two office locations in Beaufort and Bluffton, South Carolina. My passion for psychology and the human mind began during my academic career at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. I graduated in 1985 with a B.S. degree in Psychology and Sociology. My expertise in the psychological field continued at both Trinity University in San Antonio, TX, and the University of Mississippi in Oxford, MS. At the end of my academic career, I received both a Masters degree and a Ph. D. degree in Clinical Psychology.
Prior to opening an SC-based private practice, I worked in many inpatient and outpatient clinics, which have thoroughly prepared me for the range of psychological issues that individuals face on a day-to-day basis. Throughout my professional experience, I have had extensive training in cognitive behavioral therapy, family systems therapy, and marital therapy. I have worked with countless numbers of patients on issues of addiction, emotional disturbance, and relationship issues, mood and personality disorders, and much more.
My hope is that through our therapeutic relationship, I will be able to help you live a more rewarding and meaningful life, with real and lasting changes. During our sessions, I will use my expertise and experience to tailor your therapy sessions to achieve the best possible outcome. With my therapeutic approach, you can expect a down-to-earth, practical, and compassionate attitude, with a focus on active problem-solving.
