Do you have questions that go unanswered? Issues that remain unresolved?
My journey as a healer began with the absolute commitment to healing my own pain. Why, I wondered, had years of therapy not relieved me? I was still prone to great bouts of sadness and unable to fulfill what I knew I was capable of. I also found that every time I tried what I hoped might be the miracle cure, or at least the next step, significant change still did not occur.
Finally, I resolved to live as I was, which to the outside eye appeared to be an accomplished life, rather than disappoint myself further. At this point, my ex-therapist, a man I hadn’t spoken to in years, called me with a proposal.
He wanted me to experience ‘Family Constellation Work’ facilitated by a protégé of its founder, Dr. Bert Hellinger, a renowned German psychotherapist.
The session was profound, insightful, and rooted out longstanding issues, as well as pain I carried for my family. “Is it always this way?” I asked. The answer was, and has continued to be ‘yes.’ The work unerringly goes to the heart of a problem, far beyond a person’s ability to articulate it.
The insights gained are immediate and lead to lasting change. I do this work because it works. The chase for some elusive miracle cure has subsided. I found it was my gift to facilitate this level of healing in others.

How does the Family Constellation system work?
First, let me describe what it isn’t.
It isn’t psychotherapy, hypnosis or fortune telling. There is no patient lying on a couch explaining what he said….she said.
Psychotherapy has tremendous value in rethinking the past and observing how it affects who you are today. Insights learned in this fashion can take years and are colored by your remembrance of them as you reflect them to a therapist.
At the beginning of your session, you will be “centered” or relaxed in a way that allows you to best articulate your goals and desired outcome.
The facilitator then illuminates the soul of the situation, allowing all aspects of it to emerge. You will experience your life in a profoundly truthful way. The answers you seek will be revealed, leading to a course of action that is bright, somatic and unstuck.
Truth moves energy. Clarity and wisdom about your life path are guaranteed. Why? Because it comes from a part of you that you now have access to.
As strange as this sounds, it is. It’s very different than anything you’ve tried and can only be understood by experiencing it.

HOW DOES THE FAMILY CONSTELLATION SYSTEM WORK?
I’m a doctor and try to be as objective as possible, but still can’t seem to understand how you do it. I’m smart enough to find places to go where I’m helped. You offer insights that I can’t find anywhere else. I know many doctors and I place you with few others (not just in L.A., but the country). Thank you again…you are truly gifted.Dr. Rick Morris
One session with Andrea Davis is life changing. As a primary care physician with a keen interest in body-mind-spirit medicine, I’m delighted to be able to send patients to Andrea. She has a special, unusual gift. Better than Prozac, better than psychotherapy, she’s like a vitamin pill for the soul.Dr. Katherine Margolin, M.D.
What does Family Constellation Work have to do with mindfulness and insight meditation?
Andrea’s work is a unique and brilliant dharma play, designed to help you see your mental fabrications in the light of deep caring. When Andrea gives voice to your ‘soul’ — the too-often buried, wide-awake awareness within — your own deepest knowing can be affirmed. Andrea’s work can be a profound validation of your own intuitive sense of things, a great antidote to self-doubt. This work enhances your mindfulness and self-compassion practice by illuminating that which has been outside of awareness. And whatever lies outside of awareness can hold untold power over our lives.Trudy Goodman
I don’t believe in magic. In fact, I’m deeply skeptical about most therapeutic work falling outside of the bounds of mainstream science. But I must say this: Andrea is a magician. To be seen so clearly – more clearly than I could have seen myself – this is precious and rare. Through her words and gestures and presence, I could recognize those forgotten yet vaguely familiar parts of my mind – and through this remembering, a profound sense of wholeness arose. Not all of what we discovered was flattering, but it was uncannily true and ultimately, deeply affirming and liberating. I cannot say if you will have the same experience as I did. I can only say that I found the experience startlingly beautiful.Matthew Brensilver
The clarity with which Andrea saw my situation was astounding. How could she put herself in people’s places? How could she reach into the depths of their souls? The answer is that I really don’t know, but our session had tremendous impact on my self-perception, which has made all the difference. She showed me my ‘true self.’ I’ve never undergone psychoanalysis but can’t imagine it being more effective.Lieba Rudolph
