Mark Wolynn

Expert in inherited family trauma and family constellations

Mark Wolynn is North America’s leader in inherited family trauma. Specializing in depression, anxiety, obsessive thoughts, fears, panic disorders, self-injury, chronic pain, and persistent symptoms and conditions, he is the director of The Family Constellation Institute, The Inherited Trauma Institute, and The Hellinger Institute of Northern California.

A psychology and English expert, Mark has spent over two decades observing the intersection of language and trauma. Out of these observations, he created the Core Language® Approach: a way of understanding how patients’ presenting symptoms, specifically the language they use, can reveal the root of an issue in family trauma or early childhood.

Mark is the author of It Didn’t Start with You: How Inherited Family Trauma Shapes Who We Are and How to End the Cycle, winner of the 2016 Silver Nautilus Book Award in psychology. His articles have appeared in Psychology Today, MindBodyGreen,, Elephant Journal, and Psych Central, and his poetry has been published in the New Yorker.

A sought-after lecturer certified in hypnotherapy, neuromuscular therapy, conflict resolution, and mediation, Mark leads workshops at hospitals, clinics, conferences, and teaching centers around the world.
