Steven Pline, DNP, ARNP, PMHNP-BC

I am a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) with full prescriptive authority, and am licensed in Washington State to serve as an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP). I am board certified throughout the United States as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner for all age groups (PMHNP-BC).

The University of Washington provided my nursing education utilizing experience in private outpatient practice, community health, and inpatient settings, including Downtown Emergency Services Center and Seattle Children’s Hospital. Idaho State University provided much of my counseling education.

I stay up to date with professional practice through these and other professional and community affiliations:

  • Member, Association of Advanced Practice Psychiatric Nurses
  • Member, American Psychiatric Nurses Association
  • Member, National Alliance on Mental Illness

Away from work, I enjoy cooking, exploring new areas on foot or by bicycle, and long evenings of conversation

I have a passion for work with children, teens, young adults, and their families to support the development of healthy minds for those challenged by a potential or diagnosed mental illness or addiction within the family.

Philosophy and Approach

My first treatment goal is to understand your story truly. Your current concerns, goals for the future, and past context define the course of treatment. As your psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner, I can help you make informed treatment selection and symptom management decisions. Medication can be a great help for many mental health concerns and provides relief both short and long-term. For a whole experience of wellness and recovery, the evidence indicates that complementary resources, such as exercise, nutrition, sleep, social connectedness, mindfulness, and psychotherapy are helpful.

Commitment

I am committed to providing compassionate and comprehensive care individualized to your specific needs and preferences. I am honored to serve individuals of any gender expression, race, ethnicity, culture, sexual orientation, or religion. I am thankful for and indebted to many patients who have shared a portion of their life journey with me.

Families of any size (1+) and composition are welcome here. Your family is what you define it to be. I will do my best to support you, your cared-for-ones, and care providers. Yet, the person identified as the patient is my priority.

I commit to humbly supporting your efforts for wellness and health. Should my expertise or skills be insufficient to support you adequately, I will help you locate a more beneficial level of care.
