Welcome to Yukon Counselling and Psychotherapy

Aware of the need for increased access to mental health services for Yukon residents, including LGBTQQ2S+ folx as the Hon. Jeanie McLean communicated in the Government of Yukon's 2021 LGBTQ2S+ Inclusion Plan, we officially launched our online / electronic-based counselling and psychotherapy practice (i.e., online video or telephone services only). Not sure if online therapy is right for you? Click here to learn more.

Through a trauma-informed, anti-oppressive lens, we offer individual therapy for issues related to anxiety and depression, gender and sexuality, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and trauma in addition to couples therapy.

All Yukon residents seeking positive change are welcome and encouraged to get in touch with us by email (info@yukoncp.ca) or telephone (+1-867-687-3463).

Cancellation Policy

When you book a session, your clinician reserves their time for you. In the event that you will be unable to keep an appointment, please notify your clinician at least 24 hours in advance, so that someone else may utilize the time. Similarly, when your clinician is unable to keep the appointment with you, they will give you more than a 24-hour notice and rebook to another date and time.

In the case whereby you are unable to provide 24-hour cancellation notice (e.g., you cancel an appointment on the day of the appointment [i.e., the same day] or do not show up for a scheduled appointment), unless for emergency reasons (e.g., medical or family emergencies), you will be charged the fee for your session and payment will be required at your next scheduled session.

Note: Employee Assistance Programs and other insurance-based programs will not reimburse you, the client, for missed appointment costs.

Land Acknowledgement

Yukon Counselling and Psychotherapy is located on the traditional territory of the Selkirk, Taa'an Kwächän, and Kwanlin Dün peoples.

We recognize that Indigenous communities experience higher rates of mental health issues and we strive to offer mental health services that are culturally informed and mindful of the specific issues impacting Indigenous communities. We strive to increase accessibility to mental health services through our collaborative work with NIHB / IRS RHSP and our federal charity Bridging With Support.

We acknowledge that many past and current counselling practices have been impacted, influenced, and shaped by colonialism. Through continuing education and supervision from Indigenous leaders in our field, we hope to continue our healing contributions to Indigenous populations of Canada.
