Mariah Makalapua is a mother, artist, activist, empath, and the owner and creative director of Medicine Collective, where she practices as an art and tarot therapist, creating a dynamic healing experience for all walks of life. She uses creativity and intuition as tools for cultivating self awareness and empowerment with her clients. She learned from an early age to communicate with Spirit and has encouraged many to connect to their own guidance for navigating life in a purposeful way.
For over the past decade, her path has been dedicated to the energetic principles of wellness, art, ceremony, and the tools and healing work of her own lineage. A single mother by the age of 18, she spent her 20's traveling with her daughter through Central + South America and Northern Africa, and has also spent extensive amounts of time in Mexico serving as a wellness practitioner, tarot reader, and yoga instructor. At home in Portland Oregon you can find her involved in the community sharing these skills with foster youth, and pursuing a degree in counseling art therapy, neuroscience, and indiginous studies.
Under the guidance of elders, and medicine people from many different nations, and through the challenges of the inherently colonized system of higher education, Makalapua has developed a passion for bridging the gap between traditional shamanic healing work and progressive psychotherapy that can be utilized by anyone seeking resolve. Integrated within her approach is an alignment to the impact which our thoughts and actions have as they effect the next 7 generations. Her healing work seeks to offer a new paradigm towards mental health and wellness, as it coalesces with the best possible outcome for our Earth Mother and the entirety of life as a whole.
Makalapua's allegiance to this work is apparent in her sessions, where she combines the wisdom of indiginous healing modalities with practical tools for integration based on neuroscience and psychotherapy. Through this bridging of traditions, she hopes that the paradigm can be shifted towards a thriving future by providing healing and resolution.
