Francesca has facilitated Family Systems Constellation in Germany, Switzerland, Canada, Singapore, Australia, Italy, Holland, South Africa, Mexico, & throughout the Western U.S.
Francesca facilitates Family & Human Systems Constellation as transformational work. Although Family Constellation may be therapeutic, this indigenous woman does not present it as therapy. Francesca serves to escort persons who are interested in systemic healing for their immediate family, family of origin, community, or organization. She describes this method as ” one of the most profoundly beautiful healing paths that can be taken. This work, for me, is an extension of ceremony- a road of indigenous healing.”
