Greta Hirsch, PhD, PMH-C

Psychologist, Clinical Director Emeritus



Washington, D.C.

Age Range:


Practice Philosophy:

Dr. Greta Hirsch is a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in treating adults with anxiety, panic disorder, social anxiety, and PTSD, as well as individuals struggling with life transitions. An accomplished therapist, she draws from her vast experience in customizing a treatment plan that is tailored to the needs of each client. She understands the breadth of life transitions and challenges that we meet at various seasons of our life, and provides practical advice and strategies that lead to improved coping skills and self-confidence. Whether treating a 20-year-old college student or a new retiree, she offers effective, short-term treatment that impacts anxiety and worry. She provides her patients with valuable insights and new approaches, so they begin to recognize and alter the thought patterns that have been holding them back.

Areas of Expertise:

Dr. Hirsch is well known for providing patients with the experience of “in vivo” treatment, accompanying patients in situations where they experience the most anxiety.  Using progressive exposure therapy, she will join a patient while driving, flying, or in the dentist’s office to augment treatment and enhance success. This form of cognitive behavior therapy is the most effective for those suffering from the debilitating effects of phobias, panic, and generalized anxiety, and offers excellent results.  Additionally, Dr. Hirsch provides compassionate, supportive treatment for individuals who are in the midst of life transitions in careers, relationships, parenting stages, or retirement, and has a special interest in women’s perinatal health.

Experience and Training:

Dr. Hirsch is the Clinical Director Emeritus of The Ross Center, with training in a multitude of treatment protocols, including Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Additionally, she is a certified Perinatal Mental Health professional. Dr. Hirsch is an active member of the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA) and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Dr. Hirsch has completed continuing education requirements that meet the initiatives of The Ross Center’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force.
