Dr. Jessica Carfagnini, ND
Dr Carfagnini studied psychology at the University of Ottawa and then established herself in her first career as a counsellor and advocate for women who had survived violence. After 7 very rewarding years working with the Sexual Assault Support Centre of Ottawa she decided it was time to gain more tools to help people on their healing journeys. Dr. Carfagnini was drawn to Naturopathic Medicine because of the focus on the patient’s empowerment and the use of natural and traditional medicines.
In her practice she focuses on women’s health issues such as fertility, pre-natal health, hormone balancing and menopause. Since giving birth to her daughter in 2013 Dr. Carfagnini has developed a passion for pediatrics as well. She also have an interest in helping people with cancer increase their quality of life and improve their health. Thanks to her background in working as a counsellor, she is able to bring counselling skills to the care of her patients at the Thunder Bay Naturopathic Clinic and has been able to help people suffering from anxiety, depression and PTSD.
