Dr. Tracy Cook, B.Sc., ND.

As a Naturopathic Doctor and woman who walks around on this planet, I have passion for plants and a belief in a good quality of life. I work hard to teach my children the joys of an active living, nurture their connection with the wilderness and instill a love of learning and reading. My greatest addictions are skiing and hiking. I love a good cup of tea and a book to read (oh, and chocolate, too!)

I returned to Thunder Bay to practice as a Naturopathic Doctor in 2001. I consider myself a general practitioner who can help patients cope with a wide variety of health concerns. I have particular experience treating anxiety, stress, insomnia, arthritis and fatigue. I also offer Naturopathic care for chronic illnesses like diabetes, cardiovascular disease and Multiple Sclerosis. My practice also includes a focus on women’s health issues such as infertility, menopause, painful or irregular periods and PMS.

I believe people have the power within to change themselves and their health, all they need is knowledge, sound advice and encouragement.


Dr. Jessica Carfagnini, H.BA, ND.

I studied psychology at the University of Ottawa and then established myself in my 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 I decided it was time to gain more tools to help people on their healing journeys. I was drawn to Naturopathic Medicine because of the focus on the patient’s empowerment and the use of natural and traditional medicines.

In my practice I focus on women's health issues such as fertility, pre-natal health, hormone balancing and menopause. Since giving birth to my daughter in 2013 I have developed a passion for pediatrics as well. I also have an interest in helping people with cancer increase their quality of life and improve their health. Thanks to my background in working as a counsellor, I'm able to bring counselling skills to the care of my patients here at Thunder Bay Naturopathic Clinic and have been able to help people suffering from anxiety, depression and PTSD.

I feel lucky to have been raised in Thunder Bay and even more fortunate to have this opportunity to give back to the community that I love in my career as a Naturopathic Doctor.

Dr. Jordan Sokoloski, HBSc, ND.

I completed my undergraduate degree at McMaster University in Hamilton and am a graduate of the Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine program at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto. I grew up here in Thunder Bay, and after completing my schooling, I moved back to start my practice. In 2016, my wife and I welcomed our first child into the world, Theo. When I am not busy at work, I enjoy spending time with family, in the outdoors, at a movie, or with a good board game or book.

I have experience working with patients of all ages and with a variety of health concerns. Areas of special interest are in the treatment of digestive concerns such as irritable bowel syndrome, indigestion, dysbiosis and SIBO, and food sensitivities as well as stress-related concerns such as fatigue, anxiety and poor sleep. I have additional training in chronic pain management and sports medicine/nutrition, including the treatment of all forms of arthritis and repetitive strain injuries.

Acupuncture is one of the most effective therapies for both pain management and stress-related concerns through its anti-inflammatory actions and beneficial effects on the nervous system. A comprehensive approach to treatment may include acupuncture as well as herbal or nutrient prescriptions, dietary therapy, stress management techniques, and exercise therapy such as stretching. The focus is on finding and treating the underlying cause for your concerns along with symptom management. An evidence-based approach to patient care is always emphasized — decisions are made collaboratively and are based upon the recently published research, clinical experience and every patient’s unique preferences.

I am passionate about naturopathic medicine and its role in the future of health care in Canada. If you are interested in naturopathic medicine or have questions about what naturopathic medicine can do for your health, do not hesitate to call the clinic to arrange a free 10-minute consultation in person or over the phone.

Trish Eaton, RMT

Since a young age I have had a passion for assisting others and as a former EMT I realized I wanted a career helping people with injury, rehabilitation and overall wellness.

I have been in practice since graduating in 2007 from the Massage Therapy program at CDI College. My practice has a primary focus on injury and pathology rehabilitation, Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) treatment and preventative maintenance but I am always up for a challenge. Much of my continuing education has been focused on Myofascial Release, which I use in my daily practice with great result. Since the first day of my practice I knew I had made the right decision, and to this day I still love my work.

Massage Therapy has so many benefits, be it stress reduction, wellness or rehabilitation, acute or chronic conditions. I truly believe that therapeutic massage as part of your health care maintenance plan can have tremendous results.

Trudy Kergon, MSW, RSW

Born and raised in Northwestern Ontario and having lived in Thunder Bay for 30 years, I see myself as a true Northerner. I love everything here: the woods, the lakes, the trees and animals, and especially the people. I am passionate about camping, canoeing, skiing, horseback riding, and particularly my family. I’ve left the city a couple of times to study, work and travel, but I keep coming back because I feel privileged to be able to live and work with the people right here!

I studied Social Work at Lakehead University and at the University of Toronto. I have gained incredible experience while working as a clinical counselor at the Faye Peterson Transition House, the Lakehead Psychiatric Hospital, the Thunder Bay Counselling Centre and at the Lakehead University Student Health and Counselling Centre. And now I am thrilled to become a part of the team at the Thunder Bay Naturopathic Clinic!

While I have studied many counseling therapies, I am proud to say that the basis of my counseling is rooted in Mindfulness, and Compassion Therapy.

If you have a problem or concern, come in and let’s talk. Live. Life. Now.

Amy Ritchie, NNCP

I'm Amy and I'm a Clinical Holistic Nutritionist by trade and a foodie at heart. I completed the Holistic & Integrative Medicine program at Pacific Rim in Victoria BC and use food to help my clients achieve their health goals while addressing any symptoms or conditions they are experiencing.

Holistic nutrition involves looking at a person's unique needs including tastes, budget, time, goals, who you're eating with or cooking for, cravings, emotions and more. When working with clients I never seperate emotional well-being from physical well-being. I create individualized nutrition plans for my clients while educating them so they can understand their conditions, symptoms, cravings and how dietary interventions can help.
I have a special focus on women's health, sustainable weight loss, eating psychology and nutritional support for anxiety and depression.
