The idea for S.A.G.E. Holistic Health & Wellness Center began over 11 years ago when Emily & Joseph first became friends and discussion about the holistic blending of the disciplines they each studied; Kinesiology and Psychology. The dream for opening a wellness center one day was soon born and many years later, it has become a reality.
Emily Celis, MS, LMFT, left her well-established career in sales to go back to school and purse a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology followed by a Master’s degree in Counseling, both from California State University, Fullerton. Emily’s love for psychology and counseling as a powerful modality to personal change began when she had her own experience in therapy and realized the benefit and enormous positive effect it had on her life; this became her goal…to be able to make a positive impact in at least one other person’s life in the same way.
Joseph Celis, MS, CSCS finished his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees both in Kinesiology from California State University, Fullerton as well and was been working in the fitness industry long before that. He has continued to broaden his knowledge combined with his experience to bring long lasting personal changes for individuals, noting that intrinsic motivation is the key ingredient to lasting success. His passion and talent for educating other about these topics is contagious and his heart about the subject is empowering.
The two have always worked toward living a balanced life together and been constantly progressing toward better health and happier life. Together, their vision is to create a community of people where we can all strive together to be better and have a positive ripple effect into the lives of others continues to live on through the mission of S.A.G.E. Holistic Health & Wellness Center. They both look forward to meeting you at the center.
