CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - A group is offering free counseling sessions to people in the Charlottesville community through a service named "Help Heal Charlottesville." 

The Counseling Alliance of Virginia, or CAVA, is extending its services to those who have been “triggered or traumatized by unrest in the community.

CAVA’s mental health clinicians have made themselves available for free sessions in the Charlottesville office.
