When you first moved in did you put them together from the start or were they separated?  Even if they are choosing to not interact, being physically separated so they can’t see each other is beneficial when introducing cat.  Some cats can take weeks of separation before they can be slowly introduced (moving toys from one side of a closed door to the other to let them smell each other, feeding them on opposite sides of the door).  I was able to introduce my cats after two days of separation and they love each other.  They sleep together, groom each other, and play together a lot.  Other people I know have had to separate cats for weeks to have a positive introduction, and others have never successfully integrated two cats.

You said your cat chooses to keep to herself, but there have been altercations.  You could try going back to square one.  Physically separating the cats by closing off doors or rooms so they do not have the oppurtunity to get into a fight.
