Leslie Pertz

EMDR Certified Therapist

EMDR Consultant

Education & Experience

I work with general trauma, chronic health conditions, chronic pain, and tinnitus, but my passion is working with people in the perinatal period to use EMDR to bring about deep healing from pregnancy loss, infertility, birth trauma, and postpartum mood and anxiety issues. I have specialty and receive ongoing training and support in perinatal EMDR. I have worked in NICU in the past, so I am familiar with NICU experience, long-term bedrest, as well as just about anything that doesn't go "right" with pregnancy and delivery.
