Dr. Opare says “My practice/life work is informed by spirit. I am in close contact with the God within. I am profoundly spiritual and understand we all have the innate and inborn ability to heal all illnesses, dis-eases, and injuries, limited only by our belief system and thoughts. I see my role as a guide who helps you reconnect with, regain faith in and empower your divinely given instinctual and intuitive healing wisdom/intelligence.”
