Deborah Boyar

SE™ PractitionerSE Assistant

I began studying Somatic Experiencing in 2004, and was so relieved to discover this organic, respectful, highly effective approach to healing that I took the three-year training multiple times with different teachers in various locations, and later assisted many SE faculty members. I've continued advanced studies with Diane Poole Heller, Larry Heller, Steve Hoskinson, Kathy Kain, Aline LaPierre, Gina Ross, and Raja Selvam.

I am based in Northern California, but visit NYC approximately once a year. Sessions with those living outside the Bay Area are conducted nearly exclusively via video, with the option to meet in person when I'm in your area.

Please visit my website to learn more about my background and offerings. I look forward to supporting your healing journey!
