I am dedicated to promoting consciousness and integration of ancestral wisdom into western culture. The hologram of our ancestral blueprints is always with us, and we are in resonance with these blueprints more often than our minds can know or understand. Compassionate acceptance of whomever and whatever has been excluded is our human family’s calling.
In the words of Charlotte the Spider (from Charlotte’s Web): “I know a good thing when I see it, and my web is a good thing.”
- Facilitator Since: 1999
- Promoter Since: 1998
Since 1998, I have worked multiple times with Bert Hellinger, Dietrich Weth, Hunter Beaumont, Heinz Stark, Albrecht Mahr, Ursula Franke, Gunthard Weber, Francesca Mason Boring, and other internationally recognized teachers in the Systemic Constellations field. I have organized multiple workshops and trainings for Daan Van Kampenhout, Sneh Victoria Schnabel, and Gabrielle Borkan; attended Germany’s First International Training Intensive for English speakers in 2001; and attended the Second Conference on Spirituality & Constellation Work in 2006, also in Germany.
Additional relevant education, training, seminars, etc:
I received my Masters in Social Work from the University of Washington in 1992 and am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. My B.A. degree is from the University of Minnesota, a double major in Sociology and English and minor in Women’s Studies. From 1993-2000, my psychotherapy practice was held at Seattle’s Samaritan Center of Puget Sound, formerly Presbyterian Counseling Service. Since 2000, my psychotherapy practice and Constellation offerings are based out of Bellingham, WA. I have a Level II Certification in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, EMDR (1996); acreditation in Emotional Intelligence (Hay McBer Consultants, 1999); and longstanding expertise in trauma recovery.
Other Services Offered:
Individual consultations regarding ancestral entanglements (in person and phone); Constellation inspired groups; mentorship for Constellation facilitators; and pyschotherapy. There is a strong teaching component to all my offerings.
I have led workshops throughout the Pacific Northwest and in Atlanta, Denver, Washington, D.C., and the Upper Midwest. My work is based out of Bellingham, Washington, located between Seattle and Vancouver, B.C., and I am available to facilitate and teach in other regions.
Interests / Hobbies: Spending time and playing with family and friends is central to my life. Music, nature, prayer, yoga, drinking good coffee with my husband, reading to our eight year old daughter, and throwing the tennis ball for our puppy are part of daily living.
The Constellation work came into my life before my husband and I had our daughter in 2000. I am deeply grateful for the way in which motherhood and Constellation practice inform and expand each other.
Our fullblooded border collie puppy has the strongest identity in our household; my husband, daughter, and I are all mixed breeds.
My book, Ancestral Blueprints: Invisible Truths in America’s Soul, will be released June of 2009, and my weekly radio show, Life Conversations presents Ancestral Blueprints, can be heard at blogtalkradio – Life Conversations Radio Online
