"I take the word holistic seriously, aware that a person may come to me with a problem on one level, perhaps physical, but have a more pressing problem on their emotional level. I practice integral nursing, making sure the priorities of the body, mind, spirit, are all attended to, which is why I had the passionate  desire to cultivate skills and trainings which address  the interconnectedness of all life's experience."
