Constellation Therapy begins with the idea that difficult problems don’t necessarily originate from a person’s biographical past from birth to present, but are often rooted in painful, unresolved issues out of the family’s generational history.

Unresolved past events may manifest in our current lives as illness, relationship problems, addiction, financial instability, school failure, lack of purpose, depression, anxiety, etc.. In organizations they give rise to problems such as stagnation, low morale, or diminished profits.

You are not alone

If you have been to a Family Constellations event, you have experienced the power of this method. As a long-time psychotherapist and partner in The Constellations Group, I am offering ongoing groups that use Constellations as the major vehicle for change.

Most therapy groups are “just talking” and most Constellations Workshops are for one day only. By combining the two methods, the benefits of each are greatly enhanced. I have been leading an ongoing group like this for nearly 2 years and it has been a valuable experience for all. I ask people for a 10-week commitment if they want to join the current group or another group of a similar nature.  People who join are invited to define goals, specific & general, which will be supported by the group as a whole.

Constellations are appropriate for a wide range of clients and issues: individuals, couples and families, public organizations, leaders and consultants, social and political institutions, communities, and corporations. New insights and perspectives, healing, and resolution are possible for all.

As an experienced group therapist I know that it can take a long time for group members to bond in a way that is truly helpful. People who attend one-day Constellations Workshops tend to bond quickly as they literally become representatives in each others’ families or work lives. By combining the two, participants achieve goals more quickly and cement these goals over time. 


There are no limits to the kinds of issues participants may wish to work on. We deal with current concerns as well as issues that have lingered over time. We use

Constellations of different types including but not limited to:

  • current family concerns

  • intergenerational trauma

  • couples/ relationships

  • decision-making

  • obstacles to reaching goals

  • business/work problems

  • illness/symptoms

  • internal conflicts/parts of self
