Origins of the DC Waterstone name:
The name DC Waterstone reflects the challenging experience of referring organizations and the seemingly impossible expectation of change. While DC represents Dr. Castaldi’s initials, ‘Stone’ represents the harden, immovable and seemingly insurmountable issues people and organizations face.
The expectation of referring organizations is always to provide greater knowledge, insight, hope, direction and sustainable change. DC Waterstone Services exceed expectations, create change and help people and organizations reshape their experience for a healthy future. As such, ‘Waterstone’ captures how flowing water can shape and mould even the hardest and jagged of stones.
