Kiara Panetta, BSc, MA, RP

Registered Psychotherapist

My name is Kiara Panetta and I am a Registered Psychotherapist providing Counselling and Psychotherapy for Valley Connections Counselling in Milton and Dundas. 

It takes courage to reach out and ask for help but when you do, it’s important to find someone you connect with. My goal in therapy is to build a strong and supportive relationship, where clients feel safe to explore their concerns and work toward their goals. Through my experience, I’ve learned that people are incredibly resilient and that establishing healthy connection can begin the path to healing.

I work with adolescents, adults and couples. I have a special interest in working with anxiety, eating disorders, body image issues, women’s issues, relationship issues, depression, stress, and self esteem. I welcome clients from the LGBTQ+ community and am also an approved provider through the NIHB (Non-Insured Health Benefits) program for First Nations clients.

I take a strengths-based approach to therapy and believe that the client is the expert of their story. I pull from a range of therapeutic approaches to address my clients’ needs including Relational-Cultural Therapy, Mindfulness, Attachment-based, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), The Gottman Method, Imago and Trauma-focused.

I’ve received training in The Gottman Couples Method, DBT, Imago, Trauma-Informed Mindfulness, and Emotion Focused Couples Therapy. I completed my undergraduate degree at McMaster University in Psychology, Neuroscience and Behaviour (B.Sc.) and my master’s degree at Yorkville University in Counselling Psychology (M.A.). I am registered with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO).

If you are interested in working together, I provide free 30-minute consultations, to determine if this is the right fit for you. I offer days and evenings in Milton on Mondays and offer days and evenings in Dundas from Tuesday-Friday. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at [email protected]. I look forward to supporting you on your path to wellness.
