Heather R. Fisse, LMHC, LMT, RYT, CPT, MS
I hold a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from a CACREP accredited program at the University of North Florida and am currently licensed in the state of Florida (MH13170). I am currently working towards becoming certified as a Gottman Couples Therapist and expect completion of this training in the Fall of 2015. In addition, I have obtained 100+ hours of psychodrama training in both group and individual therapy.
Further, I have attended multiple trainings on Interpersonal Neurobiology as well as functional medicine approaches to psychological distress and the connection of brain and body dysfunction. These modalities combined with the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy/Mindfulness, and Interpersonal psychology allow for a very holistic approach in connecting with individuals and assisting them as they meet their goals in counseling and life.
I graduated from Southeastern School of Neuromuscular Massage in 2008 and have been practicing as a licensed massage therapist (lic. # MA53350) since that time. In this role I have gained tremendous insight on wellness as well as an appreciation and understanding that a holistic view of my clients promotes the greatest benefits to them and their therapy. My massage therapy not only impacts the physical body through the use of modalities like neuromuscular therapy, trigger point work, and myofascial release by removing physiological tensions, restrictions, and imbalances but it also has a tremendous impact on the psychological and emotional bodies by increasing one’s awareness about self and the value of self-care.
In 2012, I became certified and registered as a Yoga Teacher in the primary methods of Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, and Kripalu yoga. In 2013, I completed a 40hr training in Bhakti flow as well as immersion into the integrative methods of Yoga Nidra. In addition to teaching weekly mind/body classes at Yoga Den I have enjoyed working with individuals at Jacksonville Health & Wellness Center to customize a yoga practice that helps them achieve the greatest level of balance in their lives.

There was a time in my life when my health was not so marvelous. I had been sick for many years before going to the hospital with the uncertainty of death. I went to the emergency room, almost too late! I had lost three units of blood and was diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure, Anemia and Auto-immune issues. I felt like my whole life was gone in a flash. This was the most frightening time of my life. Scared and confused I still felt that I had a strong will to live.
Later, I realized this event was actually a blessing in disguise. My life was transformed, and I am now vibrant and healthy. I wish to share this magical experience with everyone. This adventure is validation that miracles are available for all of us. They are a gift. Our Gift. All we must do is accept it.
After all this turmoil and adversity, my life went in a new direction. The journey started with a plant-based lifestyle and lead to opening the door of truth - to our ability to heal our mind, body, and spirit. Clearing and detoxing of the body began a new exploration to learn about the anatomy of the human body.

Jennifer Costa, B.A., B.S., C.W.E.
My health journey began as a freshman in college. When I was 18 years old, I was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease, and not given much hope from my neurologists. Best-case scenario, they would manage my health with medications, told me to limit my activities, and keep a very inactive lifestyle. Through their care my health got progressively worse, landing me in and out of the hospital for several years.
That’s when I decided that this life was not going to work for me. I began studying, experimenting with foods, supplements, exercise, spirituality, and creating a new life for myself. It took time, patience, dedication, perseverance, and belief every single day to transform my life.
I hold a dual Bachelor's degree from Cairn University Majoring in Liberal Arts and Theology, as well as a minor in Social Work. Before transitioning to Jacksonville, I worked as a Nutritional Assistant to a prominent Functional Medicine Doctor in New York City. As of 2017, I am a Certified Wellness Instructor and the creator of a 4 –week Wellness Transformation Program.
In my spare time I practice yoga, explore this city with the goal of finding the healthiest places to eat, and volunteer with my church.
I feel honored and privileged to have a second chance at life, and my passion is to help others along their journey towards optimal health!
