John,
The following hack may help

data = Transpose[Table[x, {x,-3,1,.25}, {y,-2,2,.5}]];
rdata = Reverse/@data;
lcp = ListContourPlot[rdata, MeshRange -> {{-3,1},{-2,2}}]
ot = FullOptions[Graphics[lcp],FrameTicks]/.{a_,b_} :> Cases[a,
{p_,l_?NumberQ, r__}:> {p,l}]

{{1., 1.}, {0., 0}, {-1., -1.}, {-2., -2.}, {-3., -3.}}

rot = Transpose[MapAt[Reverse, Transpose[ot],{2}]]

{{1., -3.}, {0., -2.}, {-1., -1.}, {-2., 0}, {-3., 1.}}

Show[lcp, FrameTicks ->{rot, Automatic}]
