Franklin Marriott Cool Springs

“Mindfulness Techniques for Anxiety and Relapse Prevention”

Speaker: Katie Hirst, MD, BOLD Health

Dr. Hirst

Katie Hirst, MD, was trained in Family Medicine and Psychiatry at U.C. San Diego’s Combined Residency Program and founded the UCSD Maternal Mental Health Clinic during her third year of training. While on faculty in three departments at UCSD School of Medicine, Dr. Hirst gave local and international talks, wrote a teaching curriculum, published articles and chapters, supervised numerous trainees, and developed the first Maternal Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program in the Southwestern U.S.

In 2013, Dr. Hirst left academic medicine to seek treatment for opioid use disorder, which she developed following the births of her daughters. Prior to returning to work in late 2015, Dr. Hirst developed a personal mindfulness meditation practice, both taking classes and completing a teacher training. Dr. Hirst incorporates this mindfulness practice and her training in Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) while caring for patients with substance use disorders, women with perinatal mental illness, and patients with significant anxiety and depressive symptoms. She practices psychiatry and teaches mindfulness meditation at BOLD health, a physician-owned and -operated mental health treatment center in Southern California.
