Ware has offered: "For centuries throughout
man's history, he has attempted to define human success
as the presence of pleasure and/or the absence of
pain. When one learns how to embrace all of one's
heart and soul, Fear and Anger are naturally transformed
into Love and Gratitude. It doesn't take long to go
from seeing beauty elsewhere in the world to being
a part of Life's wonderment yourself."
"Although the diagnostic process of labeling
human angst has potential professional value, I have
rarely if ever seen diagnosis be an effective intervention
tool. It has more often appeared to serve as a validation
tool for the explanation of continued angst and misery."

many talented, well trained, experienced, wise clinicians “out
there.” I strongly encourage those seeking answers and/or
assistance in enhancing the quality of their lives to seek out a
well-screened clinician that you can communicate with well and
imperative, however, just as in the seeking of information from
any source, that the person seeking the information, advice or
counsel must exercise good judgment and perhaps even caution. It
is the experience and opinion of this clinician that credentials
alone do not define ability. “Buyer be smart.” Dr. Ware
recommends extreme caution in allowing a third party (such as
health insurance companies or managed care companies) that has a
financial interest in clients not accessing health care to
choose with whom the client works.
