Private Confidential Service

Our confidential service allows you to talk in comfort and safety.

Comfortable Casual Setting

The Creekside office is set in the beautiful Dunedin Ravine on the Bruce Trail. We can meet in a comfortable office, or If you are prefer walking and talking we can do that.  Or we can sit outside in the Garden.  The comfortable atmosphere makes it easier to talk about serious things.

The Therapy

The style of therapy is matched to the clients' needs and their comfort level.  We can just talk, or we can do some more active things like art work or role plays.  We include whoever wants to come to therapy, and sort out an approach together. 


Liz has done a lot of therapy work with teens and she connects well with them.  She has a lot of experience helping teens with their addictions.  

Pet Therapy

There are a few "assistants" at Creekside Therapy.  Toby the Australian Shepherd has a LOT of love to give.  Petal  the cat is super sweet, and Pippin the cat will happily leave you alone.  Don't worry -- if you don't like animals we can leave them out of the process.
