    Dr. Stefania Iovine, ND

    Hi!! I am Dr. Stefania, a Naturopathic Doctor with a love for listening to the body and giving it what it needs to thrive. My goal is to listen to you and your story to try to understand the things that may be contributing to your current state, whether its physical, mental, or emotional. I believe the most therapeutic visits consist of a lot of laughs, cries, and breakthroughs. I want to make sure you leave the clinic feeling understood, educated, and empowered to take control of your health.


    Although I see a wide variety of concerns, I have an interest in chronic pain, chronic fatigue, women’s health, and metabolic concerns. Generally during the first visit I like to focus on the fundamentals with my patients, which usually consists of diet/ lifestyle modifications, lifestyle work, and different targeted herbal remedies or nutrients. Lab work is often run in order to determine next steps. In addition, I have a love for Traditional Chinese Medicine, so I do a lot of work with acupuncture and cupping therapy for concerns such as pain, anxiety, insomnia, facial rejuvenation, etc.


    When I am not working, you will find me at HomeSense, drinking smoothies with way to much ginger, watching reality TV, or spending time with family and friends ☺

    If you would like to learn more about my approach, please book in for a complementary meet and greet. I look forward to being a part of your health journey!

    Dr. Amita Sachdev (RN), ND

    Hi! I’m Dr. Amita. 

    I bring you and your family a variety of in-patient hospital and community experience having worked as a nurse and naturopathic doctor for a combined 30 years.

    I am deeply passionate about helping patients on their journey to optimal wellness and seek to identify and address the root cause of disease to create lasting functional improvements in quality of life and overall health and well-being.

    I see patients in my general family health practice and treat a variety of conditions including mental health, women’s health (PCOS, PMS, endometriosis, fibroids, menopause), men’s health (cardiovascular, prostate), pediatrics, along with a special interest in supporting patients with cancer at all stages. 

     

    I use standard and naturopathic diagnostic tests to formulate diagnoses and can recommend naturopathic treatments that complement conventional medical treatments or be used effectively on their own.

     

    When designing a unique and individualized treatment plan for my patients, I use every tool in my toolkit and may even consider incorporating prescribed bioidentical hormones, including dessicated thyroid, intravenous infusion vitamin therapy (IVIT) and/or injection therapy when needed. 

    I’m also a mom to two amazing teenage boys living a life of fulfillment in following my passion for all things transformational in health and living. 

    I approach life with a strong growth mindset ever seeking self-improvement and thus offer patients a distinctive blend of conventional medical knowledge with traditional healing wisdom to encourage change and provide a truly integrated approach to healthcare.

Psychotherapy

  • Laura Louise Persichetti

    Psychotherapist

    Hi there! My name is Laura Louise Persichetti! I am excited to be part of the NatCan Team and offer services that will support your journey with all the amazing practitioners you are working with here.

    I am a Registered Psychotherapist, trained Life Coach, and Spiritual Guide. This multidisciplinary training allows me to support individuals mentally, emotionally, physically, and energetically; addressing the individual as a whole. As we have come to understand, our thoughts are energy, our words are energy, and our emotions are energy. Not addressing energy when addressing these aspects of ourselves is to miss a valuable component.

    My desire for many, many years was to discover what truly brings happiness in life. I traveled all around the world, studied with many different teachers, and explored a variety of different cultures. In my discovery, I realized happiness was not the answer. The truth is, we are destined to discover JOY. It is my honour and true joy to support people in discovering this joy in their life as well.

    My practice has always been about looking at the individual person as a whole: mind, body, soul, and spirit. You can make all the “right” healthy choices, but if you don’t address your mind and emotions, you’ll be missing a major component. Just like you can talk out your feelings, but if you don’t address your physical health and body, you’ll be missing a huge component there too.

    NATCAN has always been an incredible place to look at all areas of your life for health and wellness. I’m excited to be part of your healthcare team to help you conquer your mind and emotions, align you to your goals, support you in your relationships, and watch you excel when you bring all the pieces together.

    I’ve studied with many amazing teachers and professionals around the world, and have developed a multidisciplinary practice with a variety of experience from supporting people in hospice, to CEOs scaling their business. Life doesn’t come with a handbook. Having a professional in your corner can make all the difference in your health, relationships, family, business and overall fulfillment in life.

    We can book 1:1 virtual psychotherapy sessions and we can book 1:1 in-person sessions to help you balance and align your energy structure through activations and energy healing modalities.

    I look forward to meeting you through NatCan and working together through psychotherapy sessions or individual energyhealing sessions.
