Dan Cohen, PhD and Emily Blefeld, LICSW are two of the United States’ most skilled innovators in merging advanced consciousness and spiritual principles into therapeutic practice. Scientists by background and Mystics by practice, Dan and Emily approach constellating and consciousness from both experiential and evidentiary standpoints.Their unique therapeutic approach has revolutionized both their practices and created scores of extraordinary success stories.
Together Dan and Emily access the ordinary, ancestral and spiritual dimensions of consciousness to create healing processes that are illuminating and life-transforming. In the field of their Constellations, ancestral presences often become tangibly real. Behind the pain of personal and transgenerational trauma, people can feel love and receive healing from the consciousness that envelops us.
The sincerity of their intention shines on all that happens during the work together. Dedication beyond the ordinary. Talent and expertise and imagination allow them to set the stage for participants to uncover their deeper truth. — Sylvie Erb
Emily Blefeld, LICSW is internationally known as a trainer, Systemic Family Constellations facilitator, and psychotherapist. She specializes in supporting change-agents, visionaries and entrepreneurs to dismantle the old paradigms, outdated narratives, and ancient codes that hold them back and open to the full expression of their life’s purpose and soul’s path. Her intuitive gift of sight and knowledge of the hidden pathways of energy, consciousness, and vibration help clients trace inherited family and soul trauma through multiple generations or incarnations to release the burdens and blocks that interfere with living their truth, expressing their love, and embodying their passion.
Drawing from two decades of experience and training, she combines expert psychotherapy, coaching and mentoring with Constellations, Energy Medicine, and Sound Healing to help free clients from the traps of limiting beliefs, patterns and habits. Emily holds a Masters of Social Work from the University of Minnesota and is certified in multiple therapeutic modalities including Systemic Family Constellations, Core Energetics, Energy Medicine, Yoga and the Synergy of Sound Healing, Compassionate Spirit Release, ADHD treatment, and Women’s Mystery Traditions. She has presented at the Omega Institute, Kripalu, the North American Systemic Constellations Conference and served on the faculty of the North American Constellation Intensive. In addition to her private practice, she regularly travels throughout the US and internationally, including presenting training and workshops in Ireland, Scotland, Norway, Sweden, Hawaii, Hungary, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Brazil.
Working with Emily was like being wrapped in the safest, magical blanket while facing some of the darkest, challenging hiding places of my neurosis and the archetypal issues that we all share. Her knowledge, guidance and indiscriminate love for every client is off the charts. Every shadow faced was accompanied by a healing movement that I felt viscerally in my body and nervous system. I am certain my life would be in very different shape had I not embarked on this journey with Emily. She walks her talk and lives and breathes what she teaches.
– Hazel McCartney, Therapist
Emily is magic. She drops into and feels so many fractals of your existence when you sit with her. Sensing into the words that are said and unsaid. She uncovers the deepest wounds in your ancestry and soul to meet them in understanding, compassion, and fierce love. Emily’s love and support is fierce and vibrant in its’ nature and the brightness of her being gently cuts you out into yours. I am sincerely grateful to have worked with Emily. She has deeply supported the bridging of my own incarnation – from the depth of my power to shining the light out into the creation of the channels to bring my power, my heart, my whole self out onto the Earth.
– Anayza Stewart, Systemic Constellations Facilitator & Energy Healer
A journey with Emily is a journey home to a more powerful, alive and joyous version of yourself. She is one of the most powerful , magical people I know, and if you let her she will weave that power and magic into your life too. If you want to bring work into the world that is more aligned with yourself, the earth and spirit, Emily will show you the tools and the way, because she embodies what she teaches.

Dan’s clinical practice specializes in helping individuals, couples and families heal the effects of inherited trauma and fulfill their desires for having more love and deeper impact in their lives. He has a strong interest in healing generational trauma inherited from war, genocide and the legacy of slavery.

For 40 years, he has dived deep to understand the origins of violent and hostile urges that darken the human heart.
Since 2000, he has become a leading voice for incorporating personal, ancestral and spirit consciousness into therapeutic practices. Dan Cohen holds a PhD in psychology from Saybrook University and an MBA from Boston University. He is author of I Carry Your Heart in My Heart: Family Constellations in Prison and numerous scholarly articles and book chapters.

Dan’s calm, unassuming and down-to-earth demeanor were essential in helping me feel heard, seen and understood during my sessions with him. His knowledge of both the modern sciences and ancient spiritual traditions helped shed new light on important aspects of my life and lineages.
—Frederico Gouveia, Musician
If I had a karmic debt in this lifetime, it found resolve in Dan’s Science, Myth, Magic, and Mystery class. The class was a crucible holding the elements of human desire, deep intention, warm and safe connection, fearless and humble leadership, and amazing attunement and, of course, magic. I received my intention for all that doesn’t matter anymore to fall away and to stand in my strength, my heart and to trust life. I am grateful, and the gratitude is everywhere I look.
—Rebecca Smith-Woody, Therapist and Constellations Facilitator
In Dan’s classes, you are both experiencing a pioneering edge of constellations work and being part exploring the new frontiers. He crafts a place where all manner of souls can safely join in service of a healthier system. It’s like nothing else I’ve experienced, and I love every minute of it.
—Alastair Kidd, Systemic Leadership Coach
Emily and Dan work from the most transparent and vulnerable place that I have experienced with any program leaders. They create a beautiful space which is totally inclusive and inviting. They give each other the space to be completely expressed and that radiates out to the groups they facilitate allowing each person to feel seen and known. — Lori Wells
