Sandy Howard psychiatry & recovery specialist, Nurse Practitioner, Board Certified  

The right medication can help ease symptoms and restore balance in your life. My philosophy for prescribing medication incorporates evidence-based science, and wellness... the connection of mind, body, and spirit. Using a medical app we can be in contact quickly and securely giving you peace of mind with quick results in-between face to face appointments. I have appointments available in person and through tele-health.

I support the LGBTQAI+ community with a safe and compassionate space to receive treatment.

I am proud to partner with THE MEND COLLECTIVE of Asheville for your therapy needs.

I feel connected to nature, animals and music. I live in the mountains of WNC with my wife, 2 dogs and 2 cats. Check out our band, Deep River on the YouTube link below.
