Meet Lisa Stull
I am passionate about bringing healing to those experiencing trauma or life stressors. I help my clients, who include adults, couples, and families, to find healthy perceptions of themselves and strengthen their relationships so they feel a sense of meaning, purpose, and connection. Sessions involve tailoring an effective, solution-oriented approach to help you identify and achieve your goals through developing new skills and a deeper understanding of the patterns affecting your life. My clients appreciate my connection, warmth, and humor. I am known for my innate ability to get to the core of people’s issues and help them as they work to create life balance and fulfillment.
I understand and utilize various forms of psychotherapy, and tailor each session to the specific needs of the client.

Bringing over 25 years of experience in a wide range of modalities including EMDR, IFS, mindfulness, and attachment-based treatments provides each client the security of knowing they are working with a knowledgeable and skilled clinician. As a Certified Gottman Therapist, I help couples transform their relationships with an evidence-based approach to relationships.

Meet Angela Shelley
I am passionate about working with couples and individuals with relational and intimacy issues. I am trained to look at you and your unique situation with a holistic lens. The way we are raised, the way we develop relationships, our life experiences, and many more things shape who we are and play a role in how we show up in the world. I do not subscribe to the belief that you are broken or that there is something “wrong” with you. We are all just humans doing the best we can with what we have. It is my job to collaborate with you and others in your system, such as your partner or other family members, to discover the tools you need to create the positive and lasting change you are wanting.
I work with adults, couples, teens, and families. I have experience with individuals with anxiety, depression, stress, family issues, as well as finding yourself again and many more problems coming from a holistic/systemic lens. I also have experience working with couples with problems such as intimacy, infidelity, polyamory, relationship/power dynamics, pornography, gaps in desire, high/low libido, and so much more. Let’s work together to cultivate impactful and lasting, positive change in your life.
Meet Maddie Mangra
I am currently a licensed School Psychologist and have worked with all ages (K-12) in the public school system. My background includes 8 years working with diverse populations with a wide range of disabilities and behaviors in the education system. In addition to being a School Psychologist, I am also getting my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology where I plan on specializing in Child and Adolescent Psychology. I’m fascinated with learning about the brain (neuropsychology); specifically, how our brain health is impacted by the traumas we experience, how to rewire our neural pathways to live happier and healthier lives, and how to holistically support children and their families.
Although my passion lies in working with children and adolescents, I believe that our interpersonal relationships and early experiences, especially in our early developmental stages have a huge impact on the way we develop as a person into adulthood. Therefore, working with families and couples on building positive and healthy relationships are a key factor in the well-being of everyone’s development.
The journey through treatment is a personal experience that requires individualized planning and collaboration. I’m ecstatic to begin our partnership and help you get to where you want to be.
