My name is Laura Sanger. I am a Clinical Psychologist, an author, and a small business owner. I am married to the love of my life. My husband is my best friend, my encourager, my strength, and our resident comedian. My husband and I met in California through InterVarsity Campus Ministry at U.C. San Diego. We married in 1992, moved to Utah in 1996, and never looked back. Our three children have been born and raised in the Salt Lake City area. We absolutely love the beautiful State of Utah.
Educational and Career Background
I earned a B.A. in Psychology from the University of California, San Diego. I have worked at the Veterans Administration Hospital in La Jolla, Los Angeles, West Los Angeles, and Salt Lake City. I received a M.A. in Theology and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Fuller Theological Seminary. I have served as adjunct professor at Salt Lake Theological Seminary, teaching courses in adolescent development. I practiced as a Clinical Psychologist for 15 years, specializing in chronic mental illness, addictions, personality disorders, and adolescent treatment. Since 2009, I have been the managing partner of a real-estate investment business. I am an avid learner and believe an investment in knowledge is the best investment! I spent 4 years researching and writing about The Roots of the Federal Reserve available now on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
I came to know the Lord Jesus at a young age while in vacation bible school. I am a 4th generation Christian. My grandmother was my spiritual mentor. As a child, I remember listening to her pray in tongues for hours each morning. She would intercede in her basement while I listened through the laundry chute. I experienced the miraculous hand of God in multiple ways, both as a child and as an adult. I believe in the power of the Holy Spirit, and the full activation of the gifts of the Spirit. I have been in leadership at my church since 1998. I served as an ordained elder from 2001- 2018. I have been involved in city-wide and state-wide prayer initiatives for 20+ years. I am a prophetic intercessor and spiritual warrior. I am passionate about seeing people set free and reaching their full potential. I am eternally grateful that Jesus has set me free from the chains that bound me. With joy, I declare that I am No Longer Enslaved!
