Bravo on taking the first step of your journey! Finding the right therapist is not easy, and there is hope! Our team is here to help. We hope to give you enough information here to determine if we would be a good fit. Feel free to book a free 15 minute video consultation or book a session at www.thecouplewellnessexperts.com. We work with individuals and couples on-line. Kristen Parselias is under the direct supervision of the Clinic Director, Melissa Johari.

We primarily use the Gottman Method, in combination with Emotionally Focused Therapy, PrepEnrich, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Strengths-Based, Solution Focused, and Internal Systems Therapy.
My team and I would love to work with you to support you in achieving your individual or couple goals. You can have a free 15 minute consultation to determine whether we would be a good fit.
