Dan Booth Cohen PhD
Business owner, corporate executive, author, peace activist and counselor
Humans evolved with an incredible capacity to heal - both physically and emotionally. No matter how traumatic your personal history or how hopeless any situation appears, there is always a good possibility for a better future. Dr. Dan Booth Cohen helps people understand and resolve difficult problems using a transformational process known as a Systemic Family Constellation. Constellations are a deep, profound and moving experience that expand understanding and restore peace of mind.
At birth, every child loves their parents. Infants' emotional sensors are so sensitive and empathetic that they feel their elders' secret heartbreaks. As long as we breathe, the heart remembers and stirs impulses in resonance with these archaic wounds. Years later, many adults find themselves acting out self-limiting and self-destructive behaviors. When mothers and daughters turn against (or away from) each other, their grandparents' hidden sorrows live in the memory of the heart.
The major insight of Dr. Cohen’s approach is that at the root of problems that resist resolution are trans-generational traumas that reverberate through a family system. When these are clearly understood, the disturbance is transformed. Then, mothers and daughters can behave authentically and express the full range of human emotions.

- A simple exercise to help you deal better with any difficult relationship
- Understand how to heal the effects of trans-generational traumas from in a heartbeat
