About Us









License #4140

Psychology for Living provides psychological assessment, diagnosis, and treatment to adolescents and adults for a wide range of mental health problems, including but not limited to depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, phobias, and addictions.

We employ cognitive-behavioral, evidence-based treatment with a humanistic, experiential emphasis in order to reduce symptoms, improve daily functioning, and maximize personal potential in a comfortable and caring environment. We believe that in order to treat any psychological problem, the entire person and their circumstances must be considered in order to bring about lasting change through realistic intervention.  We specialize in the relationship between mental health problems, addictive behaviors, and how these impact intra- and interpersonal functioning. 

Our office is conveniently located at 191 East Chestnut Street between Merrimon Avenue and Charlotte Street north of I-240 in Asheville, North Carolina.
