Emily is the Executive Director and Founder of S.A.G.E. Holistic Health & Wellness. Along with her work as a therapist, Emily also teaches Reiki Training + Certification at S.A.G.E. and offers Reiki Healing sessions. She brings to the organization a true passion for the work of helping others find holistic wellbeing so that they can feel more alive in their day-to-day living.
As a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Emily believes that working from a holistic approach creates more room for the individual to resonate with their own sense of self and the person they hope to become. Emily utilizes Reiki energy healing as well and will integrate these approaches with clients as desired. Emily has a strong felt sense of the energetic nature of life and utilizes her finely tuned intuition from years of studying and experience to get directly to the points of change with her clients.
In her therapy work, Emily uses a combination of depth-oriented psychology, EMDR for specific traumas or difficult repeated emotional experiences such as anxiety and depression, and loves integrating various modalities in her work. Emily creates beautiful sacred space for individuals while they are working with her on their healing journey to wholeness.
Emily’s work is deeply rooted in the belief of integrated wellness and finds it incredibly valuable to work in collaboration with other holistic minded professionals who may be part of the client’s treatment team and believes that this provides the ultimate care for her clients. Emily has also founded the Holistic Healers, which is a membership of over 1,000 diverse healing professionals who come together to better understanding various healing modalities, connect with each other and collaborate – all with the intention of better serving our clients.
Emily’s goal is to create an open and trusting relationship to explore identified issues; her work with clients through their journey is her honor and privilege.

Reiki Healing & Training
Emily has been a Reiki Practitioner for over 11 years and when she conducts her Reiki healing sessions, she channels “Angel energy”. The Reiki energy comes from a place of the highest Source and messages will often come through that validate what a client is experiencing as well as giving the clients specific ways to energetically strengthen themselves moving forward and practices/exercises to continue aligning with Source. Emily’s typical clients are people who are specifically working through a difficult trauma (often in conjunction with therapy either with Emily or with another practitioner who Emily wll consult with if permission is granted from her client) or clients who want to energetically reset for a monthly check-up and appreciate the stress reduction and wellbeing they experience.
Emily has also been teaching Reiki for almost 10 years and does so with deep conviction of the way she has seen this energetic healing modality change the lives of the students she works with, as well as the ripple effect this has on our community and world together. Emily deeply aligned with her Reiki Master, Anne Reith, in how she takes such care to have a rigorous (yet fun) teaching approach, equipping her students with ethical and legal implications when working with energy as well as a wide variety of healing techniques and ways to improve and connect more deeply with Spirit and the healing Reiki energy. Emily draws several healers into her classes (psychologists, nurses, therapists, breathworkers, etc.) and she also covers important topics such as how to cleanse and protect your own energetic boundaries so that you can continue working as a healer without burning out. Emily’s students report having a closer connection with Spirit and themselves after taking her classes and Emily’s thorough and detailed approach to teaching is highly sought after.
