Hillary Pappas, MA, LMFT


I have over 12 years of experience working with children, adolescents, families, and adults. I have worked with those living with trauma, anxiety, depression, developmental differences, along with behavioral issues, family issues, and school-based concerns. As a military spouse and parent, I find importance in working with veterans’ and their families to increase connection and resilience. I treatment, I use a wide variety of strength-based, client centered treatment interventions including play therapy, solution-focused therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral therapy. We will work together to identify the problem and create goals.

I began my career working at a residential mental health facility working with adults, and eventually transitioned to specialize working with children, adolescents, and their families. I became trained in Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapist in 2017, and in 2019 became a developmental specialist in Washington state. I'm an approved supervisor in WA.

It's my passion to help client’s build on their strengths and supports, along with enhancing skills to live a happy and fulfilled life. It is her goal to help you feel heard, understood, and empowered each time you enter the office. During your sessions, you can expect laughter and kindness, acceptance and support, empathy and empowerment.
