Breaking Down Barriers
Mr Rogers

In 1969, when racial tensions were at a boiling point and black Americans were prevented from swimming alongside whites, Mr. Rogers decided to invite Officer Clemmons to join him and cool his feet in a pool, breaking a well known barrier.

Williamsburg Counseling is working to continue to breakdown barriers and invites those struggling with mental health issues related to minority discrimination and systemic oppression to contact us for low cost professional help.

Every single one of our therapists has stepped up to provide hopeful, encouraging, confidential, and professional counseling services for $10 per session to those experiencing anxiety, depression, anger, PTSD, or other mental health issues due minority discrimination and systemic oppression. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Center for Child and Family Services (CCFS).

CCFS is a local organization that offers 22+ comprehensive and diverse programs to assist families in overcoming challenges, making responsible choices, and improving quality of life through better employment, parenting skills, mental health/psychotherapy, violence prevention, ex-offender adult and juvenile job training/mentoring, adult and juvenile anger management, adolescent and young adult substance abuse, shoplifting intervention, prostitution intervention, prostitution solicitation intervention, substance abuse outpatient groups, trauma support/psychotherapy, budget and credit counseling, housing counseling, representative payee services, child care training and support services, a comprehensive program for youth aging out of systems of care such as foster care or incarceration, Hispanic outreach, and supervised child visitation programs. Donate directly to CCFS.
