Who Am I?
Photograph of Jane Damude Empey

  • I have lived in Toronto for over 37 years
  • I was born in 1947 in Ontario
  • I grew up in South America: Brazil and Argentina (My father worked for the United Nations)
  • I became interested in Psychotherapy and human behaviour because I learned to value human differences from a young age
  • I started to read about therapy at the age of thirteen (1960) and have been involved in the field since then
  • I lived in Montreal where I learned to speak French and to appreciate the Francophone culture
  • I have two children and I have been married since 1970 ( I know first hand how to make relationships work)
  • My grandfather was an alcoholic; so I have a personal knowledge of addictive patterns in families

Values

  • I maintain a fundamental respect for your value system
  • I am both strong and gentle; I take a direct approach based on kindness
  • I believe strongly in working in partnership with each client
  • I am open minded and creative; I work with the idea that we are all continually in the process of changing - you will determine the direction of that change
  • The feedback I consistently receive is that I provide a high level of comfort and challenge to my clients; they trust my integrity and my personal level of commitment to their learning process. My non-judgmental, inclusive approach is an important part of their comfort with me.
  • I have a high rate of success and work efficiently; I do not waste time
  • I am committed to creating an egalitarian experience between men and women
  • I believe there is something present in the universe, but I don't presume to define it - except that it is infinite. I respect all of our human attempts to give that "great mystery" form, and will work with you as you do your searching. Or I will respect your view that it is either non-existent, or unimportant in your life.
