Who We Are
Located in McLean, Virginia, Pasadena Villa Outpatient – McLean specializes in treating adults, 18 years and older, who have mood disorders, personality disorders, psychotic disorders, and co-occurring autism spectrum disorder.
Group settings are notoriously difficult to consistently meet the needs of each individual and focus on a curriculum created for specific diagnoses. At McLean, we assess the needs of everyone daily to prepare the next day’s sessions while also ensuring that each day seamlessly builds off the previous. We are committed to providing compassionate, comprehensive, and high quality individualized psychiatric and psychotherapeutic care for adults who suffer from severe and persistent mental illness while maximizing social functioning in the real world.
What We Treat

The multimodality approach involving group, individual, and family therapy along with psychiatric services allows our clinical team to effectively understand and address challenging behavioral issues. Often, it’s the combination of multiple mental health conditions or co-occurring autism spectrum disorder that hinders progress with traditional services. At our facility we treat:
- Anxiety Disorders
- Bipolar Disorder
- Depressive Disorders
- Personality Disorders including Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Co-occurring Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
Levels of Care
At Pasadena Villa Outpatient – McLean, we provide customized care that’s designed to meet each client’s specific needs and unique goals. We understand that people are not their diagnosis; they’re a combination of all that’s happened in their lives and their future journeys. Because of this, our clinical team of board-certified psychiatrists, licensed clinical social workers, registered art therapists, and licensed professional counselors partner with clients and their families to designtreatment plans that provide a successful pathway to recovery.
Our clinical team creates intensive treatment plans that allows each client to explore new ways to enjoy life. In a supportive and healing environment, we take a whole-person approach to treatment using evidence-based modalities that facilitate progress from clinical care towards independent self-care. Our program provides tailored psychotherapy groups that meet each week to teach our clients practical ways to handle life’s challenges, ensuring they address each client’s needs. Group-based therapy, individual psychotherapy, and family sessions ensure optimal progress in treatment and help improve each client’s quality of life.
The treatment process begins with the primary therapist conducting a comprehensive assessment that, upon permission from each client, includes consultation with the client’s prescriber, psychotherapist, significant others, and other service providers. Our experienced psychiatrists oversee all treatment, conduct psychiatric evaluations, and provide careful medication management as needed. Our psychiatrists communicate with the community prescriber ensuring medication changes fit within their treatment plan. Additionally, we value and foster collaboration with community providers as we serve as an extension of each client’s treatment team. The two-way communication ensures clients receive seamless continuity of care as they transition into and out of our program.
Pasadena Villa Outpatient – McLean is now in-network with Anthem, Humana, and Kaiser Permanente. We also accept out-of-network benefits from other major insurance companies. For clients who prefer to pay for treatment directly, we offer a private-pay rate.
