Welcome to You Matter

We're here to answer life's most difficult questions so that you can figure out who you want to become. Talk with one of our professional counsellors and get the advice you need without being judged, told what to do, or having your secrets shared with others. We help because YOU Matter!

The Jewish Family Service Agency (JFSA) in Vancouver offers youth at-risk counselling services for Jewish youth in the Vancouver area. We are reaching out to Jewish teens who are struggling with sexual identity issues, relationships, alcohol and drug misuse, unsafe sexual practices, un-planned pregnancy, violence, bullying, eating disorders, depression and anxiety. This unique program focuses on identifying and preventing these at-risk behaviours.

Whether you want information, have questions or just want to talk to a real person we encourage you to contact us. Your inquiries will be treated with respect, counselling sessions are confidential and are arranged to protect your privacy.

Our staff are well qualified registered therapists with degrees in counselling, social work and related disciplines. YOU Matter coordinator Nava Rozen has over twenty years’ experience working with youth and families. Nava is passionate about her work with Jewish youth.
