To get to the root of a problem, it is important to see what is really going on.
"I open myself to a situation in darkness, not knowing what is going on. The question is: How do I get to a truth concealed in darkness? I dive into a flowing field. I become part of it, and it reaches out beyond me." --Bert Hellinger, Loves Hidden Symmetry, 1998
Simply stated, Family Constellation Work and Psychogenealogy are therapeutic frameworks from which we seek to identify and treat the adverse impacts of transgenerational transmission within an individual's life.
Family/Systemic Constellation work is a powerful healing modality that focuses on the deeper roots of health and well-being by addressing the underlying patterns of your family and other groups and systems which are integral to your life. By illuminating the inner dynamics of yourself, along with your family, business, organization, community, etc., you can gain insight into what is causing dysfunction within those systems and create a greater state of balance and wholeness.
This approach is based on the premise that family groups share a morphogenic field that transmits ancestrally encoded transmissions within family groups referred to as "orders of love".
"When the family has been brought into its natural order, the individual can leave it behind him while still feeling the strength of his family supporting him. Only when the connection to his family is acknowledged, and the person's responsibility seen clearly and then distributed, can the individual feel unburdened and go about his personal affairs without anything from the past weighing him down or holding him back." - Bert Hellinger
A Family Constellation is a three-dimensional group or individual 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.
Consequences of entanglements may include: holding back in life, being stuck in self-defeating patterns, low-self esteem and financial failure. Bonded by deep love, a child will often unknowingly sacrifice his own best interests in a vain attempt to ease the suffering of a parent or other family member.
Family Constellations and Psychogenealogy allow us to break these patterns so that we can live healthier, happier. more fulfilled lives. In a moment of insight, a new life course can be set in motion. The results can be life changing.
Individual or Group Constellations available. Constellations may be conducted in person or via virtual office on Skype/FaceTime. Call for appointment.

Family & Organizational Constellation Testimonials:
"The Organizational Constellations facilitated on-site by Jeanie have been, by far, the best investment we could have made in the health of our organization! Many of our staff members were apprehensive and somewhat skeptical about the approach, and Jeanie expertly encouraged all participants to remain open; facilitating a full day workshop for our staff. Much to our astonishment, the constellations revealed many unresolved issues blocking our business growth and financial success. As each issue was brought to the forefront and resolved, the members of our team grew more enthusiastic about participating.
The changes our firm experienced AFTER Jeanie's Organizational Constellations far exceeded our expectations; we suddenly found ourselves exceeding our sales goals each month in extraordinary ways. Our teams now function better, we have developed new products and everything seems to happen with ease. If you are struggling with financial success, I highly recommend an individual and/or Organizational Constellation to clear your way. It will be a worthwhile investment having Jeanie facilitate for you! Now she works with our staff on-site quarterly to Constellate our business and marketing approaches. It takes the guesswork out of the process." - Fran M.
"My pre-teen daughter was suffering from with unexplained depression, extreme anxiety and suicidal ideation. She was being treated by a Psychiatrist, her pediatrician and our minister but nothing seemed to be working very well. She began wearing baggy clothes with the hood over her head as if she wanted to disappear, and our family was suffering from the prolonged stress and sense of hopelessness. A friend of a family friend had heard about Jeanie Ballard and suggested that we schedule a session with her -- that she might be able to offer us insight into our daughter's issues. Both my husband and I are very skeptical about alternative modalities, but we were desperately afraid of losing our child, so we scheduled a session with Jeanie. She was very thorough in her intake session, asking us both unusual questions and also educating us about recent epigenetic research. She insisted that we continue working with her Psychiatrist and Pediatrician as we worked together to seek the cause of our daughter's suffering. This put us at ease and it also helped to know that she has appreciation for traditional care but seeks to bridge it with integrative therapies.
Jeanie facilitated a Family Constellation for our family and what was uncovered was nothing short of miraculous. She guided us through one of the most amazing and draw dropping experiences of our lives. We were able to gain insight as to the core issues affecting our child and create a resolution for something that occurred in the history of our ancestry. Our daughter was present and able to observe what energy patterns were affecting her, and was able to feel great relief. Within two weeks of the session, our daughter's sadness lifted and she no longer suffered from thoughts of harming herself. She returned to the bright, happy and social child she had been before the onset of her condition--only freer and lighter than before. I highly recommend Jeanie Ballard if someone you know.is suffering from an unexplainable condition. It completely changed our lives and the doctors have dramatically reduced the medications our daughter had been prescribed. If you don't believe in Angels now.... you soon will!" - Leandro M.
"I was struggling in my personal career and experiencing financial overwhelm. I was referred to Jeanie by a colleague who had worked with her previously and whom I noticed had mysteriously changed the course of their career and attitude. The Family Constellation Jeanie facilitated revealed that I had an unconscious bond to my grandfather who had also struggled in a similar way. With Jeanie's guidance, I was able to clear this pattern and within a short period of time after my constellation, my career suddenly shifted into high gear and I am now feeling happier and experiencing much more financial freedom. It is a miracle to be free of the stress and anxiety I used to feel. This work is amazing and nothing short of miraculous!" - Loren D.
"For me, working with Jeanie has been extraordinary. . .Family Constellation work with Jeanie led me to clear a puzzling undercurrent of anger that I didn't recognize that was marring my own authenticity and affecting my quality of life. I feel blessed that Jeanie's family constellation work with me truly freed me from burdens I no longer needed to carry." - Susan J.
"I was desperate and Jeanie suggested an individual constellation in my search for healing of a prolonged persistent health condition that would not respond to regular medical treatment. Her depth of knowledge, combined with her extraordinary intuition, allowed us to discover what could not be seen; I was astonished that the condition resolved immediately DURING my session with Jeanie! I highly recommend Family Constellation work with Jeanie Ballard! It was an extraordinary experience and was definitely worth it; ultimately saving me a considerable amount of time and money!!" - Melissa R.
"My Family Constellation session with Jeanie was unbelievable! Jeanie guided me through an individual Constellation via Virtual Office/Skype and I was able to uncover a trauma related to my grandmother that was severely impacting my health in the form of extreme anxiety. Afterwards, she applied Ascential Integration and assisted me to return to peace, as well as transform my mind and spirit. I recommend Jeanie Ballard to everyone. Her Integrative Healing Therapies is a multi-dimensional experience! " - Dian C.
"Having stage IV sarcoma cancer in the lungs, diaphragm and lymph nodes has been a challenging ride with lots of ups and downs. Jeanie has helped me greatly through Family Constellation work. We were able to get to the root cause of my health issues (stage IV sarcoma cancer), which was caused by the dysfunction of my family system. By consciously breaking the pattern, I have experienced a positive shift in my health and am now living a more fulfilled life since doing the work!" - AnaMarisa V.
