T. Hilda White, M.D., Board Certified Psychiatrist and Psychoanalyst

Hilda first developed an interest in mindfulness through her experience as a psychiatrist. After graduating from the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, Ga., she began a diverse career in several areas of the field including public psychiatry, administrative psychiatry at several facilities and psychoanalytic psychotherapy in her private practice. She completed her subspecialty training in psychoanalysis. Hilda has also worked as an Associate Professor at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine. With a growing interest in mindfulness practices, she completed a week-long professional MBSR training program under founder Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn and field leader Saki Santorelli in 2004. Hilda’s studies of meditative practices and her personal meditation practice have continued to be a vital part of her life. Hilda wanted to share her personal passion for MBSR professionally, and hopes to influence her students’ lives through MBSR at Upstream.
