Days and Hours of Operation
We are open Monday-Friday for day and evening appointment times. Please contact a therapist with questions about more specific appointment time options.
Scheduling an Appointment
All sessions are set times that are scheduled a week or more in advance with your therapist as we do not accept walk-ins or non-client emergencies. If you are not currently a client and are experiencing a crisis or emergency please call 911, your local mental health center or go to the nearest Emergency Room. If you are a client and are in crisis please contact your therapist immediately and leave a detailed message so that we may respond quickly to your call.

About Jackson Ward
The entire Jackson Ward Historic District is only one of two districts that are National Historic Landmarks in the City of Richmond. This formal recognition of its national significance stems from the importance of Jackson Ward in African American history.
In 1769 William Byrd III subdivided the area encompassing present-day Jackson Ward into 100-acre "out lots." Richmond grew toward this area in the early 19th century, and a diverse group of "Free Persons of Color," European immigrants, American- born white artisans, and Richmond businessmen bought lots and built homes in these outlying subdivisions.
Jackson Ward became the largest African American community in Richmond and a nationally important center of African American economic and cultural activity. The neighborhood was home to such distinguished African Americans as Maggie Lena Walker, and Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, the famous actor and dancer.
