    Since 2001, he has been working with patients integrating a new paradigm of healthcare based on dietary and lifestyle medicine along with various “hands-on” therapies and modalities. He fosters partnerships with his patients and is determined to find the true causative nature of each person’s health challenge while helping to uncover or unlock their highest self/potential. He has developed an educational curriculum for his patients through one-on-one counseling, workshops, weekend cooking classes, manuals, recipes, and books. He uses the unique “5 Steps to Wellness” paradigm along with a revolutionary plant based dietary intervention called the 100% DIET. It was developed over a 15 year period in working with 1000’s of patients and conditions (heart disease, autoimmunity, hormonal dysfunctions, weight loss, fatigue, depression, diabetes, etc.). The 100% DIET is based on eating 100% of our foods from 100% natural sources. Treatment plans are individually tailored for each individual focusing on the whole person – mind, body and spirit.

    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 uncertainty of death. I went to the emergency room , almost too late!  I had lost all but three units of blood and had a weak pulse! I was then 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 in this transformation, I found my true path in this beautiful life . Now that I am vibrant and healthy I wish to share this magical experience with everyone. This adventure is validation that miracles are out there 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 acquired a new direction. The journey started with the plant based lifestyle. This opened new doors of truth about our own ability to heal our mind, body and spirit. Clearing and detoxing of the body begun a new exploration to learn about the anatomy of the human body. This adventure led me to the Hippocrate Health Institute in 2007 where I learned more about the plant based lifestyle and integrative techniques.  Supreme Science Food Healing in 2013 expanded more knowledge on phyto-nutrients and how this serves our overall health.

    I graduated from Florida Cost Career Tech of Clinical Massage in 2011 becoming a Licensed Massage Therapist (MA66518), this open so many doors of certifications. In 2013 I obtained a certification in Ashiastu (BareFoot) Massage . The anatomy of the body sparked a new interest of energetic modalities where I achieved the Foundation Certification of Clinical Acupressure from Soul Lightening International in 2014. Then in 2015  I obtained a certification as a Licensed Spiritual Health Coach ( SCH 2067) at The Universal Gnostic Fellowship, which provided me with the education on metaphysical modalities. The Jacksonville Wellness Center will be a great addition to my integrative educational  journey

    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 Bachelors 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 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!

    Bachelor of Science in Theology

    Jennifer is married to her high school sweetheart and together they have two children. Her favorite pastimes are camping, traveling, boating and hoop dancing (which she also loves to teach).

    In her own words:
    In an effort to heal my own body from endometriosis, PCOS, hormone imbalance, acne and anxiety, I spent years researching nutrition and alternative medicine. Over time I did heal myself and no longer suffer from any of those things.

    I also spent years doing research to help my son heal from a vaccine injury that sent him spiraling down a path of multiple health issues, including damage to his gut. As his mother I knew there had to be more answers, and better help. What I found on this health journey with my son, is that the body will heal itself if given the right fuel and time to heal. I am happy to say that today he is no longer suffering. He is a happy, healthy, and active teenage boy.  

    I know what it is like to hear medical doctors say there is nothing else they can do, or when they suggest things that don't sit well with your heart. I know what it's like to feel desperate and overwhelmed with information in a society where Googling your symptoms to try and find answers is commonplace and everyone is selling a quick fix. There is a better way, and that is why I decided to help people on their own health journeys.

    I absolutely love my work as a heath coach and yoga teacher. My education and training at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and Regenerative Living School has given me a voice for whole-health advocacy. Mind-body-spirit connection is everything! I truly believe that I have found my dharma, my purpose in life.
