Welcome! My name is Mariah Vlach. I am a Marriage and Family Therapist in the states of California, Oregon, and Washington, and a Certified Hypnotherapist. I hold a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology through Pacifica Graduate Institute. I am a third generation Slavic-American. My ancestors hail from Eastern Europe. These people were an indigenous, matrilineal culture, who practiced alchemical earth folklore and healing rituals. Despite millennia of persecution, the Vlach people still exist. In the mountains of Eastern Serbia, the Vlach’s continue to practice their traditional ways of life, just as their ancestors did. It is to them, I am indebted to the work I do.


My journey of self-discovery has led me around the world, studying within many cultures and traditions of meditation, psychology, and the arts of healing and alchemy.

In 2008, I was led to the reality television show 'Survivor', where I worked in production on and off for 10 years. While traveling abroad on the show, I had the opportunity to integrate my deep curiosity of the world with my desire to understand and connect humanity, history, healing, culture, media, and the limitations and potentials of the human mind, across the globe.

Here, I received the opportunity to study within the culture and religions of West Africa, shamans of the eastern Brazilian desert, medicine people of the Amazon rain forest, and the Pacific Islanders of Samoa & Fiji. Upon my return to the United States, I received my yoga teacher training at the Omega Institute located in the Catskills Mountains of New York and later pursued a professional education in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine at Bastyr University, in the Five Elemental Philosophy.


In 2019, I received my MA degree from Pacifica Graduate Institute in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis on Depth and Archetypal Psychology. 

As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I have experience in counseling for substance use disorders; specializing in men's and women's support groups, with a focus on addiction as a spiritual malady.

I have over 10 years' experience and training in Hypnotherapy. I received my certification from educator and author, Mary Lee LaBay, PhD, in 2011 at Bastyr University and graduated from Antioch University Seattle in 2015 with a BA in Liberal Studies and with an area of concentration in Spiritual Studies. I studied and practiced many styles and philosophies of earth-based indigenous healing and wisdom, including my own profound 4-day vision quest in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State.

In February 2021, I completed my training to become a Certified Money Coach (CMC)® through the Money Coaching Institute. Money Coaching is the process of peeling away behavioral patterns around money, passed down through family and multi-generational systems. This is a powerful 4-part coaching program that uses cognitive behavioral therapy and neuroscience to deprogram dysfunctional unconscious belief systems around money. 

About: About


I work holistically, encompassing and welcoming all parts of you. My work is a dynamic blend of contemporary, Indigenous, and intuitive techniques, learned and discovered through many years of experience, education, and training. I lead from the heart, while always upholding to the highest ethical standards of my profession. I work from the ground level up, so it is important that I get to know you. This is why your initial session is longer than a returning client session. The time we spend getting to know each other and developing a trusting and safe rapport will assist you in being able to relax more deeply into hypnosis and be present to the experience. During your initial session we talk about you and your past, allowing me deeper insight into who you are, where you might be feeling blocked, and what questions you would like answered by your Higher Self. Here, I am able to begin a treatment plan that encompasses all of you. We work together through the processes and modalities I use. The more open, willing, and forgiving you are to explore the shadows of your mind, the more understanding and liberation you will experience as we embark upon this journey together. It's more possible than you may realize.

With Love,
