 "I believe in looking at the whole person, as well as integrating all aspects of their well-being, including physical, environmental, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social health, in to their care. By emphasizing teaching and education of their illness and health, and encouraging responsibility for personal efforts one can achieve well being that will benefit themselves and their family."
