Emily Celis, M.S., LMFT, Director & Co-Founder

About Emily...

Emily Celis, M.S., LMFT is the Executive Director & Co-Founder of S.A.G.E. Holistic Health & Wellness Center.  Inspired by the understanding that there are many parts of ourselves that create the whole, as well as the belief that there is no "one right way" to do things, Emily was driven to create this nonprofit organization to be a guiding source to those wanting holistic integration in their life.

As a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Emily believes that working from a holistic approach, [in this case meaning taking a look at physical health, mental health, spiritual health, and social health] creates more room for the individual to resonate with their own sense of self or what they hope to become.  In a person-centered approach, Emily creates this space for individuals, couples or families to work together with them on their journey to wholeness.  When other complementary methods to wellness are integrated, Emily is there to  work with other professionals (if desired) to create continuity and overall wellbeing.  Emily believes in collaborating with her clients to work toward creating the vision in their life as they have always imagined it...bringing greater joy. 

Areas of focus include work with individuals, couples or families who are going through a faith crisis or religious transition, LGBTQIA+ population, trauma / abuse, substance abuse, anxiety, depression, other mood disorders, and other life transitions. Emily's goal is to create an open and trusting relationship to explore identified issues.  She believes that her work with clients through their journey is her honor and privilege.  Email Emily at emilycelis@sagewellnessctr.org or call (714) 391.3853 to discuss your particular needs or schedule an appointment.  Emily offers a 15 minute phone consultation at no charge.
