Clarity Okanagan provides counselling services to youth, adults, families and those in relationships, inclusive of those in non-monogamous relationships. In addition, we provide affirmative care planning, as well as hormone and surgical readiness assessments to individuals seeking affirmative care, and work with families on these topics as needed.

Some providers may be covered by FNHA or CVAP funding. Please contact directly for more information.

We have a team of counsellors with various experience working with 2S/LGBTQ+ clients. If you'd like more information about a specific counsellor's expertise, please contact us.

Want to learn more about this service’s work with Two-Spirit, trans, LGBQ+ people?

We invite all service providers listed on MindMapBC  to answer the following questions. These questions were developed in collaboration with community members, researchers, and mental health and other service providers. They're intended to help us understand what a service provider or organization is doing to affirm and support sexual and gender diverse service users.

See below for responses for this listing.
