My name is James Governale. I’m the founder and creator of High Heart Wellness. I’m a holistic health counselor and career coach, living in Brooklyn, New York and working with health practitioners throughout the world to improve the quality of their practices and services. I received my training at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I’m fortunate to satisfy one of my career goals in working as an on-line educator assisting others in their training.
During my training at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. My teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities. My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.
In addition to this, I work one-on-one with individual clients who want to increase their capacity to provide services to others while maintaining their own health and growth. I conduct programs for wellness practitioners who choose to overcome barriers in their career. Programs primarily focused on how to increase skills that provide higher client compliance and retention. Greater confidence and effective time management comes with the understanding and practice of these methods. I hold seminars and tele-conferences on mindfulness techniques and how to apply holistic health theory to create a tangible skill set for professional development. I supply the content of these events as digital downloads and e-books for anyone interested to purchase them.
