About Us

Mental Healthcare should be affordable, accessible, and inclusive to all.

There are no marked or closed doors. 

All are welcome. All are valued. 

"But still, like air, I’ll rise" ~ Maya Angelou


We all have our briar patches. These are those places we find ourselves stuck because they are familiar. Your briar patch could be an abusive relationship, substance abuse, or systemic racism or other forms of oppression in the educational or workplace.

At Briarpatch Solutions we treat patients rather than provide services to clients. There is a difference. Come to the Briarpatch to discover, see, and feel the difference.

The Briarpatch Philosophy 

At Briarpatch Solutions we take a systems approach infused with restorative justice in treating individuals as well as couples and families. 

We work to remain culturally competent ever-striving to meet the unique challenges that face our diverse communities. 

Beginning therapy is scary. Trying to make it through a difficult time without a therapist, can be even scarier. 

Do not wait until you are in crisis to start therapy, begin by reaching out today!

At Briarpatch Solutions we pride ourselves on our work with BIPOC, LBGTQ, and other oppressed communities. 

We are here for you.
