Dedicated to Improving Patient’s Lives

The Ross Center was established by visionary anxiety specialist Jerilyn Ross, whose own struggle with mental illness inspired her to create a world-class treatment center for others whose lives have been disrupted by anxiety and depression.

We pride ourselves on keeping up with the latest research and providing the best practices to our patients and their families.

As anxiety and depression rates have skyrocketed, the need for short-term, effective treatment for mental health disorders has grown. We’ve responded to that need with expanding offices in Washington DC, Northern Virginia, and Manhattan.

Professional Management Team

At The Ross Center, we have a dedicated management team to ensure that each patient receives the highest quality, most effective treatment and personalized, responsive service in all of our locations.
