Project Description

Breathe First is a modern, studio-based wellness project offering a truly holistic model of service. Our mission is to create spaces that normalize mental healthcare as part of a well-rounded lifestyle and foster a sense of community in the process. 

Our studio will be a place of guidance, support, and healing as we work together to end the dangerous stigma that lingers around the ideas of mental health and self-care, one client at a time.

Breathe First will offer traditional forms of talk therapy supplemented with services like yoga, meditation, massage, acupuncture, and creative arts. 

We are raising funds to purchase a physical space where can centralize our operations. In eliminating a major source of overhead, we plan to compensate a team of dedicated professionals in a way that allows them to offer excellent care to clients while also taking care of themselves. By owning our space, we will also be able to offer subsidized services to those who are invested in wellness but cannot afford the cost of mainstream options. 

Everyone at Breathe First believes in the power of pausing. We are a team of experienced and passionate professionals in the fields of mental health and mindfulness. Our goal is to partner with each client to identify and address the steps that will lead them to their highest self.

Your interest and support is more meaningful to us than we can express in words. Every dollar, every mention, every vote of confidence helps us get one step closer to opening our doors and welcoming people into a safe, transformative place where they can slow down, create change, and begin to truly heal.
