Dr. Catania's interest in becoming a naturopathic doctor and acupuncturist grew from her desire to help others heal. Dr. Catania began studying holistic health and nutritional counseling through program created by Dr. Gary Null at Pratt Institute, NYC. She graduated from Bastyr University in 1994 and has been naturopathic physician for over 25 years.
Her pursuit of healing others continued with the study of acupuncture as she came to appreciate the wonders of acupuncture as a modality for improving and even resolving chronic pain, injuries and other health issues.
Dr. Catania believes in the individual's power to heal and in the power of the sacred space to tell their story. Knowing the best results come with trust, education, and support of the process, she works with patients every step of the way, to help them achieve optimal health.
