introduced to Carla and this work, it has been amazing... she
has a kind and compassionate manner of assisting individuals and
families through the healing process. I am so grateful for the

is such a swift way to bring the family to harmony, clarity and

Seeking guidance through a method that involves pure love, spirituality, and compassion has helped me with being easier on myself and has taught me how to love myself unconditionally. I see the world through a very different perspective. Carla has enlightened me with her kind, wise, and supportive way. I know she was put in my path for a reason. Her work is truly profound therapy for the heart and soul.
Thank you Carla. A.Rosa MA Psychotherapist
"I've been to 2 other local licensed counselors over the past year with extremely surface level results. To truly get to the root of the issues, I decided to research online for accredited counselors that not only dealt with the psychological aspect of healing, but the spiritual aspect as well. After interviewing her over the phone and asking several key questions, I felt confident in attending one of her sessions.
Within that first session, I was already making complete and profound life changing realizations about past thinking patterns and choices that ultimately effect my everyday. Carla approaches counsel by taking a holistic view based on values, influences, goals, and relationships and has been amazing at uncovering deep seeded obstructions that block potential healing. She provides activities during both the sessions and for homework that help open doors for positive navigation of life's challenges no matter the situation or spiritual belief. She truly cares, is compassionate, friendly, trust worthy and takes an extremely neutral position throughout the entire process."

"I was first introduced to Carla when a friend told me I should go to one of her Family Constellations workshops. The first workshop I attended moved me very much. The group of people involved were strangers at the beginning and by the end we had laughed and cried (and everything in between!) together. The workshop was amazing and clearly healing for all who were present. Since then I have attended many of Carla’s workshops. I find her work very enlightening, non-biased and incredibly helpful. With the constellations, you see the dynamics at play in a situation very very clearly. Its hard to describe this work, you really just have to go to a workshop to see for yourself!
Carla herself is one of the most vibrant, dynamic, positive people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. To me she is a teacher, a colleague, and a friend. She is always an uplifting and inspiring presence. Her work reflects both her ability to go very deep with people and her incredible compassion. This is someone doing healing work who is totally heart-centered. Carla is very willing to speak the truth but always seems to do so with love and kindness.
The best word I can think of to describe Carla’s work is “empowering”. Her work helps you to see your life and your circumstances clearly and then gives you the tools to change for the better. For anyone looking for emotional support, help moving through difficult transitions in life, clarity on your circumstances, the power to CHANGE, and so much more, in Carla you will find a great cheerleader. This is someone who can help you to transforming your life and make it what you desire and truly deserve."

"As a retired dr., I was ecstatic to have an instantaneous healing during just 1 constellation workshop........Traditional talk therapy would never have healed my deep wounds as an adoptee... and the effects of the Holocaust....
Carla is a genius as a metaphysical psychotherapist.....I can honestly say that her work is very effective and really works......thank you Carla.....Ilene, Boynton Beach.
You have meant so much to me and done so much for me with your loving kindness and wisdom and ultimate professionalism.
I am a better person for having you in my life."
Love, Linda L J (Bereavement group "Finding Purpose after Loss)
"Carla is a warm, sensitive & caring professional who offers a unique way of helping people to accept
themselves for who they are and also to learn how to make changes in their lives in order to live more peacefully.
I feel privileged and honored to have the opportunity to know Carla. She has given me and my child specific tools
to change our perspectives on what we perceived as stressful thoughts and feelings and to move forward emotionally & spiritually. Thank you Carla, you are a gem!!!" A. A. Boca Raton
"We really appreciate all your guidance and everything we learned from you.You made it really easy for us. And I could say you changed the way I see life now. Thank you so much!"

"Thank you Carla for your constellation workshop.....your compassion and genius helped me reunite with my biological family .........you are wonderful and you do miraculous work.......thank you for helping me have a fuller life." Ilene B.B.
"Carla is a wonderfully bright and shining gem in my life. With her guidance I have reacquainted myself with a life filled with love, laughter and joy. She holds a vast clinical, scientific and spiritual knowledge which she lovingly shares to heal and transform those willing to listen and learn. She is authentic and articulate; a real treasure to anyone looking for personal transformation.
Many of you have heard me speak of Carla Van Walsum's workshops and how wonderful I think she is. I met Carla via her "Happy Children, Happy Home" workshops. She is based in Boca and works in what some consider to be an alternative style.
I really believe in the work that she's doing. She certainly helped me and my family discover (or re-discover) how to live with more love, laughter and happiness. I can say, though, that in working with Carla, life is much more pleasant and less stressful for us now than before...Katie Starkey, Ft Lauderdale
"I just wanted to thank you for teaching me about the Circle of Excellence, and I ended up using it during the Key Club election and was re-elected President for next year! I repeated the 3 attributes we talked about (Self-Confidence, Trust, and Joy for the Job) I would feel nervous and, even though I didn’t have the actual cards when I went to school, I envisioned them lying on the floor around me when I delivered my speech. I didn’t feel any self-doubt while I was up there, and I didn’t even think about the other candidate because of what you told me – that I’ll do my best and whatever happens, happens and it’s alright.That experience made me realize that the Circle of Excellence can be used for many other aspects of my life, for feeling confident about myself even when there is opposition or obstacles.Thank you for helping me obtain the self-confidence I needed to be successful in delivering my speech!" A 17 year old High School student
I have known Carla Van Walsum for a few years now. I first met her in a professional capacity for business marketing. I continued to stay in touch with her because I could see that she was a good person, she had good energy and she was so positive and I could see she was doing good work. Last year she had a positive self esteem art class that she taught and I had my 15 year old daughter and my 14 year old niece attend. They both LOVED it and found that what Carla taught was very effective and helped them both so much in so many ways..even transcending self esteem issues, which was a bonus.
Now, my daughter and I see Carla for therapy as well. My daughter was diagnosed with ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Anxiety, Depression and a tactile processing sensory issue and later possibility of Autism when she was eight. When she was born she had to be resuscitated and she may have suffered brain damage, which is why her brain processes things differently than most. I have never had her on medications, instead I focus on alternative therapies. My daughter has been in therapy since she was eight years old. She has only ever had two therapists since that time. Now, we are only seeing Carla. In all the time she saw the other two therapists, Carla has had more breakthroughs with Sara in only 5 sessions than anyone else we have ever experienced. It is so amazing to see my daughter smiling, laughing and happy all the time. She is getting along with her peers at school. She has a boyfriend and they have a very healthy relationship. Carla is also making breakthroughs in the way that Sara and I handle our relationship as well and we are learning to communicate to each other more effectively. Carla recently did a constellation on my 15 year old niece and she has been having some breakthroughs as well and my daughter and I both witnessed the constellation and found it so amazing and therapeutic to experience and it was a very healing experience. Additionally, my daughters school is considering bringing Carla in to the school to do a seminar for the parents and the kids at the school so they can benefit from her talents as well. All in all, I HIGHLY recommend that if you are experiencing any issues in your life that are hard to handle, it is my experience to tell you that I KNOW without a shadow of a doubt that Carla can help you solve them and live in peace. It is nice living in peace. Carla is a gift to this world.

" Hi Carla,
I'm so grateful for your
presence in my life. You 're my guardian Angel,
Counselor and Teacher.I
have the feeling that you know exactly how I
need to become the best I can be. And I love You for that.Thank you for your
Carla’s dedication to
counseling goes above and beyond the in-office
sessions. She has shown a genuine concern for my
well-being, maintains daily contact if I choose,
and honors the ebb and flow of personal growth
“Carla has gently guided me to
better health, brighter thought patterns,
healthier views on relationships. I have done a
fair amount of talk therapy in the past, most of
which seemed to attach a label or diagnosis to
certain feelings or situations, then encouraged
a certain wallowing in that. I knew
instinctively that the psychological approach to
growth left something out …usually the growth
"I came to Carla looking for a
different method in dealing with my divorce. I
didn't want to concentrate on the past, or
continue the blame game that I felt was
happening with the other psychologists I had
tried talking to. I just wanted tools I could
use to simply move forward in my life. As soon
as I had spoken to her on the phone, I knew that
she would be different.
Carla is always
positive and kept me positive throughout the
entire process--which is the key to getting
through the divorce without too much
difficulty. She constantly reminded me how
to stay in the light even when I felt so
much anger or fear. She never dismissed my
feelings, yet guided me back to a positive
place by actually giving me the tools I
needed to deal with specific situations. We
worked extensively on recognizing what exact
feelings I had, and working back toward
positive feelings and also a lot of work
with the Law of Attraction. She reminds me
to be mindful and be aware of my thoughts.
To keep myself focused on the positive. And
since it is not necessarily the easiest task
to undertake, especially in a divorce, she
was always patient. It seemed at times to be
going two steps ahead, and one step back,
but she never wavered in having
understanding and patience. But eventually,
having a constant reminder that things were
indeed "working for my highest good", I
started to know how to move in the right
direction and not allow the fear or anger to
particularly instrumental in helping me cope
with the emotional roller coaster I was on
due to the drama of the divorce. I kept
myself aware of my feelings and learned to
set myself up in a higher place before
dealing with my ex-husband. Learning to not
align myself with him, was also clearly an
effective method in not getting sucked into
arguments, or other bad encounters with him.
must add: Carla has amazing intuition. In
all honesty, there were moments of deep
despair. Moments I felt so bad, wondering
how this could be happening. But Carla would
call! She would call me at those precise
moments!! Its as if she knew I had no one
else to talk to or who understood. It was
amazing to me and uplifting to have an
angelic friend who cared at that exact
moment. It was purely amazing to me that
this would happen, many times, too.
in working with Carla on a spiritual level
in dealing with the divorce worked so much
better for me in the long run because I came
out of the process, more grounded, less
emotionally raw than I believe I would have,
if I followed a different path.

studied the Laws of Attraction and New
Thought for several years, and had loads of
fun dissolving clouds and manifesting
parking spaces. Carla’s work has really
invited me to become more disciplined with
my thought management. It helps so much to
have another person to whom I am
accountable, someone ‘checking my homework’
of daily gratitude journals, for instance,
or challenging me to see a situation
"Everyone has a life story. Everyone has a family story. To see
our stories in a whole different way is the gift that we are
blessed with by Carla's work with the Systemic (Hellinger)
Family Constellations. Having been to Family Constellations as a
participant, a client and as an observer, I am amazed at the
healing that I have witnessed and experienced. If you are on a
healing journey, this work may be an important missing piece of
the puzzle that you may need to see the whole picture."

"Carla's constellation workshop is moving, powerful, and healing
on multi-dimensional levels simultaneously, enabling healing to
occur in the past, present, and future timelines. The coming event
will be amazing! I look forward to seeing you there."
