Who is Marikka?


  • Marikka was diagnosed in her 20s with a "serious mental illness". During this time she wondered if she would ever be able to work or function independently again.  Through her recovery she has  integrated a spiritual perception to her experiences of psychosis, mania, anxiety and depression. She chooses to look at these states beyond clinical classifications. While training and working  as a peer support specialist and coach she has redefined the significance of her mental health challenges and uses her story to help others do the same. Almost 20 years later Marikka brings a new awareness to mental health recovery by joining the Spiritual Emergence Community https://imhu.org/coaching/directory/ which honors an integrative  approach to mental health and  encourages exploration of  the spiritual aspects of life.

  • Marikka is certified as a Peer Support Specialist, a Life Coach, a Spiritual Emergence Coach® and has a degree in Psychology from Arizona State University. She has studied various philosophies, spiritual practices and has been trained in Reiki I & II. She has also taken numerous classes on Intuitive studies and continues to practice self development. She has been working in the behavioral health field for 12 years, providing support to thousands of people struggling with their mental and spiritual wellness.

  • Marikka has used various healing methods for herself including psychiatry, psychotherapy, homeopathy, acupuncture, bodyworks, cranial sacral, meditation, intuitive guidance, Vedic astrology, nutritional support and energy healing. Marikka is passionate about various mental/spiritual healing methods and she continues to explore pioneering techniques and treatments for herself and to better be of service to others.

~Anna (Tucson, AZ)

"The best and clearest way to describe her approach is gentle and as organic as possible.  We were able to meet various places which provided a venue that allowed me to reminisce and see more into what I wanted. Ms. Malm coached me into using not only my own perspective but in a way that I could make a paradigm shift in my thinking. Her exercises and homework were easy to follow and allowed me to ask myself questions that I could process quietly."
