Dr. Brent Hogarth
Founder, Sport and Clinical Psychology Post-Doctoral Fellow
As a Sport and Clinical Psychology Post Doctoral Fellow I help athletes develop greater mastery of body, mind and emotions, and craft, in order to support them on their personal journeys. This includes sport psychology performance enhancement training, as well as clinical treatment for mental health challenges such as, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, and substance-abuse.
I employ a mindfulness-based sport psychology approach when working with athletes, which focuses on developing a present moment attention, non-judgement, and a clear purpose or meaning. Through the development of mindfulness, athletes may experience improved emotion regulation and self-control, along with greater flow-state, or optimal experience. When athletes are able to tap into flow they can experience becoming completely engaged in their sport and life, ultimately performing and feeling at their best. It is this flow-state, or zone, that I have received specialized training in as a sport psychologist that, in conjunction with my clinical background, best help athletes achieve the results they are seeking.
Therefore, while I teach traditional sport psychology mental skills including goal setting, positive self-talk, imagery, confidence, arousal regulation and so forth, I do so within a mindfulness worldview. The result of this approach is not only improved sport psychology mental skills, but ultimately an improved process to regulating emotions and self-control that enables athletes to have Psychological Flexibility - the ability to contact the present moment more fully as a conscious human being, and to change or persist in behavior when doing so serves valued ends.
I think that it is also important that potential clients know that I not only teach sport psychology and mindfulness, but that I also do my best to live it. I have spent considerable time in India and Nepal living and training in both yoga and meditation in Buddhist Monasteries. Moreover, I continue diligence in my own athletic journey, most recently completing the 2018 Whistler Ironman.

I have turned my lifelong passion for health into the pursuit of helping others achieve the absolute highest possible levels of well-being and vitality.
My approach is not based on pat rules but instead on sound scientific principles, advanced lab testing and thousands of hours of clinical experience. I am a firm believer in the innate intelligence and healing capacity of the human body. I have seen too many people heal from illness and injury that once seemed hopeless to believe anything different. The most important thing is to get out of our own way and let the body do its job.
Unlike conventional lab testing that focuses on one biomarker at a time, I utilize a systems approach. Advanced metabolic and genomic lab testing can determine how your body systems are working. These results show us where the opportunities for healing and optimization lie. Then we create a bio-individualized plan to help you achieve your highest brain, body and fitness goals.
I serve clients both nationally and internationally via secure video conferencing. I recommend setting up a short conversation to see if working together is right for you.
