Ms. Pappas works well with teens, young adults, adults and seniors, bringing experience in working with diverse cultures — including serving the mental health population of Hawai’i — to her practice.
Using various interventions depending on the specific issue, Ms. Pappas draws from her bachelor’s degree experience in art as therapy when appropriate. She often uses brainspotting, a noninvasive modality for treating trauma, and uses mindfulness for depression, anxiety and addictions. Ms. Pappas also works with people who have experienced “loss” in one form or another, such as a death of a family member, a death of a pet, a loss of a relationship or a disability that has altered their life. She uses appropriate interventions to help with this process.
Ms. Pappas welcomes individuals from the LGBTQIA+ community into her practice.
She received her master’s degree in counseling psychology from Norwich University.
