Catherine O'Halloran, ND Naturopathic Doctor
Catherine O'Halloran completed her Bachelors of Science in Anatomy and Cell Biology, with a minor in Psychology at McGill University, in Montreal, Canada. Following that, she attended the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto and obtained her degree as a Naturopathic Doctor. CCNM is one of seven naturopathic colleges accredited by the Council of Naturopathic Medical Education.
Catherine chose this profession because she saw the need for a type of health care that treats the entire person, and not just the symptoms of disease. She strives to follow the guiding principles of the profession, especially treating the root cause of disease and utilizing the innate healing power of nature. Through her training at CCNM, Catherine learned each therapeutic modality, including nutrition, botanical medicine, lifestyle counseling, homeopathy and physical medicine. In addition, she has taken courses through the Benson Henry Institute of Mind Body Medicine at Harvard and has started training in craniosacral therapy.
Although Catherine treats a wide variety of patients, with varying diseases, she has a special interest in women's health and pediatrics. In her clinical year at CCNM, Catherine was fortunate to be on a specialty shift in pediatrics, treating conditions such as autism, Asperger's syndrome, ADHD and childhood epilepsy.
Catherine is a member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, the Massachusetts Society of Naturopathic Doctors, the Association of Perinatal Naturopathic Doctors and the Pediatric Association of Naturopathic Physicians. She currently holds a physicians license through Vermont.
