Special COVID-19 note at June 1, 2021:     My sessions  continue to be conducted mainly through a secure internet-based platform or by telephone.  As numbers of new cases decline, I am seeing a small number of clients, where it is warranted and deemed safe to do so, in-person.  If you are a potential new client, please let me know your preference and we can discuss whether it would be a safe option. As more of us receive our second vaccination, I am hoping to make in-person appointments increasingly available towards end of summer.

Hello and welcome to my website.  I’m Dr. Josef Zaide, a registered psychologist practicing in Vancouver, British Columbia.

For over 35 years I’ve worked with children, teens and adults in private practice, hospital, and school settings, providing  assessments, counselling and psychotherapy.

In private practice now, my work is dedicated solely to psychotherapy and counselling in youth, adults and couples who come from a wide variety of backgrounds and have a range of different concerns and aspirations.

The core values and attitudes that are important to me are kindness, acceptance, and an authentic connection. From this foundation we will discuss what’s important to you and address the particular issues and stressful feelings that you are facing so that you can experience a greater sense of ease and move with greater flexibility and choice in key life directions.
