Why Work With Us?
Whole Family Wellness CenterWe will find answers for your health problems by addressing the root causes rather than merely treating your symptoms with medications.
  • We start by listening to your whole story. During your comprehensive 90-minute initial visit, we uncover the detailed contributors to your conditions including genetic predispositions, biochemical & environmental exposure, and diet & lifestyle patterns.
  • Using cutting edge science and functional medicine principles, we discover the crucial deficiencies and imbalances which are the cause of your symptoms. Next, we educate you about how your body works and the necessary steps to restore balance.
  • Together, we will create a realistic, personalized plan to help you recover. This will include a discussion of the essential elements that create optimal health & vitality—what we refer to as the Six Pillars of Health: Food, Sleep & Relaxation, Movement, Community & Relationships, Stress Reduction, Mindfulness.

What Makes Us Different?

Patient-Centered Health

Conventional Western medicine focuses on treating the disease – it asks the question, “What disease does this patient have?” whereas a patient-centered approach asks the question, “Why does this disease have this patient?” The focus is on the uniqueness of the patient. We will treat the whole person and not just the disease.

Identify & Treat Root Causes

Most health practitioners spend about 8-10 minutes with you. They focus on finding a diagnosis, ordering labs & may offer a prescription that addresses your symptoms but doesn’t solve your underlying problem. We will take time to listen to your whole story & get to the root cause.

Provide Both 1-on-1 & Group Classes

We provide you the education, support & empowerment to make the lifestyle changes you need to achieve your health & fitness goals. We work with fitness, health & food preparation partners in our community. Whole Family Center

Telehealth, Webinars, Electronic Health Coaching

We provide phone and web-based consultations for our clients’ convenience. They can create a photo-based food journal, take selfies, and log workouts. They can track individual health metrics and physical activity using wearable devices like Fitbit, and personalized goals for real-time feedback and accountability.

Not all questions occur between 9:00 and 5:00 PM. Our patient portal and mobile app allows you access when you need it, where you need it. Our messaging platform for our clients allows us to securely communicate in-between sessions.

Catherine Schwartzbaum, BS, RN, CRNI

Catherine SchwartzbaumCatherine is dedicated to identifying and addressing the root causes of chronic illness through a cutting edge, whole-systems approach to health called Functional Medicine. After bouts of debilitating fatigue and muscle pain, Catherine took matters into her own hands, did her own research and found answers. For the next 17 years, she worked with hundreds of physicians, practitioners and patients teaching these principles to find answers they need as well. As a patient and lifestyle educator, she is uniquely qualified in educating and empowering patients to stop managing their symptoms and start healing their conditions.


My mission is to address the root cause of your health issues and resolve your underlying physical imbalances. I founded Whole Family Wellness Center to showcase the benefits of functional medicine and lifestyle interventions for every adult and child. Through education, guidance, and support, you will receive the tools to live an extraordinary life. My vision is to help people achieve their full potential through health, because vibrant health is the vehicle that allows one to use their God-given gifts to serve others.

More about Catherine



Here Is What Our Clients Are Saying

I began working with Catherine Schwartzbaum when my daughter was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at the young age of 15. Feeling crushed and afraid, I reached out to Catherine for nutritional advice. I do not have the words to express just how incredible she was during those very difficult days that turned into weeks and eventually months. Katherine put together a plan that really helped my daughter. Along with food suggestions and supplements, we were able to get Rachael in remission within one short year. If you know anything about Crohn’s disease, this is nothing short of a miracle. I do not have anything but positive things to say about Catherine, and I highly recommend her services.

C.G., Valencia

Catherine is one of the wisest and most compassionate people I have ever had the opportunity to meet and for these qualities to be present in my healthcare provider makes me feel like one blessed woman! She has gone above and beyond with me on my journey of healing and I trust she will do the same for you.

T.C., Valencia

Catherine has been helping me recognize what I have been wanting for my health and has helped me in developing my nutritional plan to get there. She asks the right questions and helps me think about things in new ways. I would recommend Catherine to anyone. She is very calm, non- judgmental and quite knowledgeable. I feel fortunate to have her guiding me on my wellness journey!
