Dr. Gross has over 25 years of experience in taking care of patients with psychiatric and addictive disorders.

Now she is in private practice in Ridgeland, where she also sees patients in A Bridge to Recovery’s Intensive Outpatient Program.

“I am not a gardener,” says Dr. Gross, “but I come from a long line of women who were, and it is a joy and a privilege for me to work with people who are struggling, to watch them turn toward the light and grow into lives of fulfillment and peace.”
