"All people carry with them an energetic field or blueprint of their biological families... that has an enormous unconscious effect on each family members’ life and all the people they interact with."  -Bert Hellinger

A Family Constellation is a three-dimensional group process that has the power to shift generations of suffering and unhappiness. Bert Hellinger, the founder of this work, who studied and treated families for more than 50 years, observed that many of us unconsciously "take on" destructive familial patterns of anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, aloneness, alcoholism and even illness as a way of "belonging" in our families. Bonded by a deep love, a child will often sacrifice his own best interests in a vain attempt to ease the suffering of a parent or other family member.

Family Constellation is an amazing energy modality to assist in recognizing difficult entanglements with family members and/or current relationships. It is similar to Gestalt therapy and is loosely based on the African tradition of Sankofa, which literally means”go back and fetch it” and translates as “ we must go back to the past so that we may understand how we became what we are and move forward to a better future.”

Linda Puechl dreamed of making music an exciting course for students instead of an “easy A”. She planned on being an awesome music teacher, so went to Penn State to study music education with a major in voice and a minor in piano. When she could not find a position in music, she ended up getting her Master’s degree in Business and spent the bulk of her working life in Accounting and Finance. After many years as a business line controller and financial analyst, she realized that she was no longer getting any personal satisfaction out of this line of work and began studying Family Constellation Therapy at the Hellinger Institute. Having completed her certification, she is working on bringing Family Constellation Therapy to the general public through education, workshops and even private sessions.

    What I have read about Family Constellation sounds interesting to me, but unfortunately I won’t be able to attend the workshop on 5 March as i’ll be out of town for a work appointment. Will there be any other possibilities or how could I contact Linda Puechl to understand further about the method and possibly try it out?
    Thank you

      Hello, Alfredo. Thank you for your interest. I am sorry that you won’t be able to attend. I do not have any other sessions scheduled in the near future. You can email me at and I will be happy to answer any questions you might have. I also know that there will be a full day session scheduled through the scheduled on April 25th in the South Hills. You may contact them for more information and experience this amazing technique there.

        Linda, thanks for your reply.
        Eventually things went in a different way then initially expected, as my trip has been rescheduled and most likely I’ll be able to attend your workshop. I look forward to. Thank you

    Hello Linda,

    I am a Hellinger trained Family Constellation Facilitator practicing in Pittsburgh. I saw your offering for this workshop and was curious…how long have you been in Pittsburgh? Which Hellinger Institute did you study at? Was Mark Wolynn one of your teachers?
    There are a few of us in Pittsburgh who were trained by him about 15 years ago. We do try to support each other in getting this work out there to the public!

    I wish you great luck for your Workshop. I will be doing a full day Family Constellation Workshop on April 25th in the South Hills of Pittsburgh. If you would like to join us on the 25th, please come as my guest.

    Best wishes,

      OMG! I didn’t know anyone else who studied this technique was still in Pittsburgh, and practicing no less! I studied at the Hellinger Institute in Squirrel Hill under Mark Wolynn in 2009 and again in 2010. I initially heard about Family Constellation therapy through my medical doctor, Amy Stine. She facilitated my first constellation, which changed my life. Did you by chance study with her?

      I would love to attend your workshop on April 25th. You can send the particulars to me via email at I am currently scheduled to be out of town that weekend but I will see if I can rearrange my plans. Do you have any other workshops scheduled in case I am unable to change those plans? I look forward to meeting you and others who are doing this work!
