Arlene VanderDussen, ARNP
Lake Union Psychiatric Group
I am a psychosocial nurse practitioner with a passion for supporting emotional growth in young people. I received my Master’s Degree in Psychosocial Nursing from University of Washington in 2000. I was certified as a Clinical Nurse Specialist by the American Nurses Association Credentialing Center in 2001. After having a private practice at Greenlake for 6 years, I joined the Lake Union Psychiatric Group in 2006
I see children 6 years and above, adolescents and young adults for medication evaluations. I see adolescents 13 yrs and above and young adults for psychotherapy. I treat many young people with Anxiety disorders, Mood disorders, and Attention Deficit Disorders. I do medication management for youth on the Autism Spectrum who are in therapy with their own therapist. My treatment may include cognitive-behavioral, psycho-educational, and strength-based supportive therapies. My nursing care is founded on relationships of trust between patient, parents and myself. These relationships take time to develop. I take time to see my patients for their strengths, their vulnerabilities and their needs. I believe all people no matter where they begin can grow up to be stronger than they were when they started. You can reach me at email@example.com
