Dr. Catrina N. Luca earned her Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Miami and her Medical Doctorate from University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine through the Honors Program in Medicine (allows its participants to complete both a Bachelor’s degree and a Medical Doctorate in 6 years). She completed her Adult Psychiatry residency and a Child and Adolescent Psychiatry fellowship at the University of Florida serving as both Chief Resident and Chief Fellow, respectively. Post-training, Dr. Luca became an assistant professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Shands Teaching Hospital, University of Florida (now UF/Shands) where she instructed medical students, residents, fellows, and physician assistants in the art and nuances of psychiatric care. It was during this time she developed a keen interest in a holistic, integrative approach to psychiatry with a comprehensive focus on healing mind, body, and spirit. As such, she became a diplomate of the American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine and completed a certification in Pastoral Counseling from Liberty University. Dr. Luca is board-certified in both psychiatric specialties as a diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
Over the last 15+ years, Dr. Luca has had the opportunity to train, work, teach, and lead in multiple settings including: academic medicine, forensic psychiatry, community mental health, and the private sector as Medical Director and Chief Medical Officer. These venues have provided exposure to a wide range of clinical opportunities resulting in a broad clinical experience. Currently, she operates her own private practice, specifically geared toward integrative psychiatry, assisting patients in their journey toward health and wholeness.
