Dedication. Expertise. Passion.
Dr Patricia Barreto
Hi. I am Doctor Patricia Barreto, owner and creator of MAPS Integrated Wellness. I hold a Medical/Clinical Psychology doctorate from the University of Alabama at Birmingham and have had a passion for wellness since I was a young trainee. In my practice, I conduct psychological, pre-surgical, and forensic evaluations as well as Psychotherapy. I also collaborate with other providers to deliver integrated care to patients. I was born and raised in Havana Cuba but became an adult in the United States. I have traveled to many countries and I find pride in having met many interesting people over the years. I trained in Ballet in Havana during my adolescence. Artistic expression will always be close to my heart and I use it in many of my programs. When I am not at the beach, I can be found with my loved ones, having deep conversations with friends, running around Amelia Park, reading, and playing with my dog. I wish I could go to a play, the ballet, or the symphony more often. My kids and husband are present in almost everything I do. We live in Amelia Island and we love it here. Hope to meet you soon!

Hello. My name is Beth Matricia and I’m the office manager here at MAPS. I’ve lived in Amelia Island my entire life. I’m an island girl through-and-through and enjoy traveling, scuba diving, yoga, and spending time with my “mini- me”. I truly believe in MAPS and everything we stand for. As Greg Anderson once said, “Wellness is the complete integration of body, mind, and spirit- the realization that everything we do, think, feel, and believe has an effect on our state of well-being.”
Hi. I am Ashley, Registered Dietitian and Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist, as well as a Certified Lactation Counselor with nearly two decades of experience in public (Florida Department of Health) and private sectors. I obtained a dietetic nutrition degree from Clemson University, as well as a Master of Public Health degree (community health emphasis) from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. Having grown up in rural Vermont, I developed an appreciation for holistic health (body, mind, and Spirit), including restoring one’s body from the inside-out. I specialize in wellness coaching, medical nutrition therapy (especially GI disorders and gut health), and empowering people to create a lifestyle of intuitive and mindful eating. My goal is to empower individuals to connect to their unique blueprints and create fulfilled lives that embrace love, self-care, and delicious foods. One of my nutrition strategies includes intuitive eating, where I teach people to break free from dieting and replace it with nourishing food choices that strengthen one’s body. I have traveled to over 20 different countries, including Italy where I studied abroad and refined my Mediterranean cooking skills.
Hi. I am Christina Wright and I have been in the fitness field for 25 years. I am certified in group fitness by the American Council on Exercise since 1999, and in Personal Training by the National Academy of Sports Medicine since 2018. My clients range from beginner exercisers to past athletes. I am a former Adjunct Professor in the School of Health Studies at the University of Memphis, teaching classes on topics related to overall health and wellness concepts, including nutrition and stress management.
I see health and fitness as lifelong, holistic pursuits. I enjoy the challenge of finding out what works best for my clients and creating workouts using a mix of bodyweight exercises and simple equipment. Programs must be effective, but also have to be fun - bringing elements of overall health into life outside the gym as well as inside. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to fitness.
Intuitive Art Instructor
Sandi is a healing artist. Her love of intuitive painting combined with experiences of moving energy caused by emotional and physical trauma, has led her on a journey of self-discovery through creativity and visual expression. Sandi started by creating wall murals in 1989. As her spiritual life matured, she began to feel her ability to offer healing through her gift. Sandi’s love of people led her to being a soulful artist who has begun studying spiritual art. A concentration on women and marginalized groups makes this form of artistic interpretation a perfect selection for Sandi. It will be her absolute joy and pleasure to guide you in finding ways of expressing yourself using images and intuition. Stay tuned for class times on the schedule.

Dr Patricia Marterer
Dr. Marterer grew up near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She received her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in 1991 from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville after completing her Internship at Tulane Medical School Department of Psychiatry and Neurology in New Orleans. She has been a licensed psychologist since 1992, and has had experience working with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. As a therapist she draws particularly from the teachings of Analyst Heinz Kohut, who believed genuine empathy to be the core healing element in all therapeutic relationships.
Dr. Marterer has special interest in grief and loss therapy; helping people to understand and heal from trauma; the impact of early obesity on body image; and helping men define healthy masculine identity in relationships.
Dr. Marterer has several rescue pets and looks forward to walking her dog Ramona on the beach. She is a singer/songwriter who currently most enjoys singing Jazz Standards.
Many people ask who took the captivating pictures we have at the center. Her name is Stacey Rushing (here with the pic that has become our logo, hangs in our waiting room) and she is a wonderful person and talented artist. I asked her to send me description of what she loves and this is what she said: " I am a nature photographer based out of Jacksonville Florida. My family and I are usually out exploring the beaches and nature preserves so I can find those magic moments to capture.
I hope that you enjoy my work as it is truly my passion."
