“Mental health is a process, a delicate balance between our brain, body and soul, influenced by our journey through life. The right medication can ease symptoms and restore balance."               ~Sandy Howard

“One small crack does not mean that you are broken, it means that you were put to the test and you didn’t fall apart.” 

                                     ~ Linda Poindexter


Sandy Howard psychiatry & recovery specialist 

My philosophy for prescribing medication 

incorporates evidence-based science, and wellness... the connection of mind, body and spirit. I take the time to assess what influences your unique concept of self, your strengths, your vulnerabilities, and your outlook on life. The right medication can help ease symptoms so you can restore the balance you need to pursue a fulfilling, meaningful, and successful life. I deliver concierge care by staying connected one on one with you through the process of finding the right medication. I am proud to partner with THE MEND COLLECTIVE of Asheville for your therapy needs. 

"Out of your vulnerabilities will come strength."
                                             ~Sigmund Freud
