Michael Van Gelder, Psychiatric ARNP
As an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner, my philosophy is grounded in the science of nursing. I provide holistic treatment that addresses each person’s unique physical, mental, social, emotional, cultural, and spiritual needs. Mental health treatment is a process that requires knowledge and collaboration. I firmly believe in involving my clients in decision making about their care. I am excited to be in a practice where I am able to collaborate with other treatment providers to provide the best care possible.
I am a board-certified Psychiatric Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (Psych ARNP-BC). I graduated from EWU in 2008 with my Masters of Science in Clinical Psychology. Shortly after I completed that program I was accepted into an accelerated nursing program to receive another Masters degree in nursing with a specialty in psychiatry. I graduated from the Masters of Nursing program at Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) in Portland OR in 2012. As a psychiatric ARNP, I have practiced in a variety of community mental health settings both in Portland OR and in Spokane WA. I have spent majority of my time caring for uninsured and under-served populations where I have worked collaboratively with therapists, primary care providers and specialists to help manage psychiatric treatment of medically complex patients.
