Founder, Sport Psychologist

Justin Anderson, Psy.D., LP is the director and founder of Premier Sport Psychology, based in Minneapolis, MN. He is a licensed psychologist who specializes in High-Performance Psychology and Leadership. Over the last 20 years, he’s had the opportunity to work with the best of the best in sport, sport psychology, and in business. He’s helped countless professional, Olympic, and collegiate athletes gain an advantage in their mindset and mental preparation.

“Our biggest opponent is often ourselves. Having your mind work for you, rather than against you, is the key to any elite performance.”

Premier Sport Psychology is currently contracted by several professional and Olympic teams/organizations where Justin and the rest of the Premier Sport Psychology team do psychological profiling for NBA/NFL drafts, as well as individual and team development work to improve performance and wellness. In addition, Premier Sport Psychology currently provides all in-house sport psychology services to the University of Minnesota Athletic Department. Prior to opening Premier Sport Psychology, he was employed by several NCAA Division I Universities as a psychologist and sport psychology consultant.

Justin is a frequent keynote speaker at many national sport and business conferences where he shares stories of how the best of the best compete and manage adversity. He has been interviewed by a number of national media publications discussing topics related to sport/high-performance psychology, wellness, and leadership.

Justin was a collegiate football quarterback at the University of Minnesota-Duluth and a three-sport athlete (football, basketball, baseball) in high school. He currently loves to play golf and play sports with his two daughters.
