Dr. Brent Hogarth is a Sport and Clinical Psychologist living in Vancouver, Canada. After completing his undergraduate studies in Kinesiology, he traveled to India where he studied the craft of yoga and meditation. Recognizing the absence of mental training in his athletic career, it was at this moment Brent dedicated himself to becoming a mindfulness-based sport psychologist.
Brent completed his Doctorate at an American Psychological Association accredited institution in the San Francisco Bay Area. He has worked extensively with Division 1 student-athletes and teams, Olympians, executives and high-performers in multiple contexts. Additionally, Brent has supported diverse individuals suffering from severe mental health challenges.
However, Brent's focus has always remained on optimal performance, which culminated in his dissertation on the intersection of mindfulness training and flow-state. Brent grew up as a competitive gymnast, backcountry skier, graffiti artist, rugby scrum half and basketball player. He most recently completed his first full Ironman and is training for an upcoming 100 mile race.
