Contact Virginia R. Youngren, PhD

I have a parking space that you may use. The space is #16 in the lot directly behind the building, reached from Massachusetts Ave by way of Trowbridge Street.

I take Blue Cross-Blue Shield insurances, including most recently developed managed-care plans. I also take United Healthcare and Value Options.

With plans continually changing, it is in your interest to consult directly with your plan administrator about your benefits. I will provide you with necessary paperwork in those cases where I do not bill your insurance company directly. I also offer self-pay that includes an incentive for you to pay me directly and then get reimbursed by your insurance company. Please feel free to ask me for more information about this incentive.

Missed Appointments
In most cases, I will have to charge for appointments cancelled with less than 24-hour notice. Insurance does not cover these missed appointments.

Self-Pay and Co-Payments
If you want to pay by credit card, you may do so at my office. In addition, I can receive payments online via Paypal or Google Checkout.

My Credentials

I hold a Ph.D. from Rutgers University in English literature (Nineteenth Century Studies) and a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Boston College. I did my Doctoral Internship and Postdoctoral Clinical Training in the Department of Psychology at McLean Hospital. I have experience in behavioral medicine and in short- and long-term psychotherapy and psychoanalysis of adults and adolescents.
