What makes She Soars Psychiatry different? Let Owner & Founder, Audry Van Houweling, PMHNP-BC exlpain in the video above! 
  1. 1
    Why Functional Medicine?
    Functional medicine aims to target the root cause of an illness or concern. This is especially important in mental health as traditionally, treating mental health conditions is primarily a trial and error process and rarely looks beyond reported symptoms. Psychiatric medications may help improve symptoms, but whether they restore true vitality and wellness  is questionable. Functional medicine offers a powerful, non- invasive, and sustainable route to restore emotional wellness leading to better outcomes and a greater quality of life. ​​​

Men and boys may be seen as part of our Affordable Concierge Care when female family members are also involved. Male family members are also welcome to join sessions per the consent of the woman or girl being treated. 
  8. 8
    Are there medications you do not prescribe?
    Medication management is limited to the management of psychiatric medications. If you are on other medications, we may suggest changes, but will ask that these changes be done by the prescribing provider or a primary care physician.  With the exception of a few special circumstances, there are some medications that are known to be associated with side effects that we feel jeopardize an opportunity for sustaining vitality and wellness. That said, if you would like to seek medication management and are on any of these medications, we would be happy to assist with developing a plan for gradual reduction and discontinuation. We can also assist in finding more sustainable alternatives including non-pharmaceutical options.
