Expressive Art Therapies


At times, a special combination of healing is needed.

Art therapy combines conventional therapy techniques and a visual interpretation of images to uncover individual discoveries. Aesthetic techniques are used to channel ideations whereas other methods may fall short.

As an art therapist, Mariah Makalapua of Medicine Collective is trained to recognize the most appropriate artistic tools to curate an individualized healing experience. If you would like assistance on which direction to go, we are happy to offer a consultation.

This work is intended as a guide for clients to physically and symbolically develop new stories, release old ones, and honor major life events in workshops and private sessions.




Expressive Art Therapy sessions require advanced booking
and currently take place in the portland metro area or via skype.
