Coming from a long lineage of Catalonans (Ancient Traditional Filipino Shamans), Medicine Workers, Seers, Spiritual Devotees and Guides ceremony and ritual have called me from a very young age. It is a place of honoring. A place of stillness, of gratitude and communion. Whether this be a simple post partum steam to sitting in circle with other like minded souls, my heart has been called to give in sacred reverence.
- Womens Circles
- Mother Roasting
- Grief Rituals
- Self Care Pratices
- Family Ritual/Ceremony
- Space Blessing + Cleansing
Sitting in circle with like-spirited women in a safe and sacred space can be one of the most soul-filling and fueling things we can do as women. Coming together to share in story, experience, ceremony, handiwork and food is an ancient practice that most of us have long forgotten. It was the backbone of the village, a place to come together in one accord, communion and to break bread. Today many of us are searching for deep, authentic friendships with women who speak our language and who are willing to hold space for us to loosen and maybe even unravel.
In these circles we will reconnect with our deep, wild knowing as Sacred Females - our innate gift of intuition and our keen heart centered way of creating relationships with others. These circles hold the divine knowledge passed down to us by our lineage and it is our turn to continue the line.
There are many different ways we can sit as women be it in a New/Full Moon gathering, a simple coming together in friendship, supporting a new mom or in moments of release.
Contact me for Circle availability or for information on how to facilitate your own.
We live in a world where we have been cultured into domestication and material achievements essentially losing our intrinsic, wild nature. Our sense of who we are is wrapped up in layers of unknowing and searching, life yet to be discovered. Let's get you back to your divine essence. There are many paths to center, to enlightenment, to live from place of higher knowledge + freedom; these channels are in each of us. Sometimes in life we disconnect, reject religion, acquire wounds or live without awareness; we lose our map to Source. This deep work is to guide you back.
This is the heart center of my work. These sessions are anchored in Spirituality and have been a lifetime culmination of practice, learning, lived life experience and guidance. This has been my life's passion, one that has taken me over 20 years to develop and hone. If the draw to this work is what brings you here and I honor that in you.

about this work
The healing can be done, its nothing I can give you that you don't already possess. I will not sell you magic, nor will I create a false hope that any combination of spiritual accromutamants will save you. My spirituality does not have a dress code, a metaphysical language, it is not self centered or self serving. It's not a tincture or herb or crystal that holds the key to your healing, those simply are all tools in which you can be supported. I believe that Tarot is a great tool for insight and honing intuition, that ecstatic sex is more that just postions and that living with intention can bring ease and fulfillment, but all require dedication. The Divine lies in something beyond the material and physical, beyond what our human brains can fathom. The work happens when we open, when we break patterns, shift our ideas, forgive and set ourselves free. The healing happens we we build a solid foundation, when we inquire about what we really believe in and let that permeate our everyday lives. I am no greater or wiser because of my study or experience but I AM of service to you because of it. It is my call to support you in your healing.
I do not have the answers but you will. It is my job to hold you in a space that allows you to be as truthful and as honest as you can so that you can peel back the layers. I am merely a guide, a healer and a mirror to show you it can be done, I am honored to share my experiences with you as long a you are prepared to be wholly transparent. I will be your persistent companion, the one who will devote my ears to deep listening, the one that will guide you back to your truth, your deepest desires and intentions- what you feel is your soul's cry. My support for your healing will be in the form of accountability and love- blame and excuses are not means in which we will operate- this journey is yours, the ability to heal is yours, I cannot heal you, the responsibility lies in you. I am not here to empower you, that force already resides in you. it is God given. I believe in speaking truthfully even if its the scariest step because I have learned that it is a potent step to connection and intimacy, to self and to others. Together we will face the messiest of emotions or feelings, we will not bypass them with 'just letting them go' or finding a positive spin, we will sit together in their discomfort to see what they are here to reveal. Unresolved feelings hardly ever reside in happiness or joy but often live in grief, disappointment or sorrow. We will celebrate every triumph and revelation, we will laugh, cry, smile and have a-ha moments but most importantly we will work in love and compassion. This work is not for my personal glory or success but to uphold you in yours. And I will be your reminder that perfection is never the standard but vunerability is.
I believe in God and once I connected with the more feminine aspects of the Divine I found salvation. I believe in walking barefoot in nature. I believe in prayer, in stillness and holding intentions. I believe a spiritual foundation will hold you rooted when things go to shit. I believe that enlightenment comes with diving deep into the dirt and filth, descending into the dark in order to ascend into the light. I believe that being awakened is more grit than glory. I believe that we all deserve a group of girlfriends like the foursome in 'Sex in the City', I believe in dark chocolate and late night conversations. I believe in cultivating intimacy, that motherhood can bring full circle healing and a warm elixir can comfort the soul. I believe we have access to angels, spirit guides and ascended masters and that we are all capable of receiving their wisdom and insights. I believe in the sparkle in my children's eyes and in love at first sight. I practice what I preach and if I believe we are not a good match, I will say so.

THIS WILD SOUL
Hello wild hearts, I am des.
I am a creative with a nomadic spirit and a wild heart. I have lived in a third world country, hiked mountains while babywearing, and danced on table tops.
I celebrate a life filled with love and utter joy alongside my supportive partner, who continues to tell the same jokes yet still manages to make me laugh + totally gets me. I am a stay at home, homeschooling mom of two spirited daughters that teach and evolve me daily. The golden thread of living with intention is woven into the fabric of our everyday lives. You can usually find us hunkered down at the kitchen table learning about things that ignite us or outdoors adventuring and looking for the perfect spot to eat our packed lunch.
I was a photographer by trade but have always felt the calling to help guide, embolden and support people on their journey to wholeness. I enjoy cooking meals with intention, creating nurturing and beautiful rhythms for my family and love a good self care ritual that usually includes an extra hot latte and a donut.
:: I am based out of the PNW but am available for travel, sessions via phone or video chat ::
I was born on the same day as the Virgin Mary, an auspicious beginning on my journey towards the Sacred Feminine. At a young age I was always drawn to mysticism, connecting with my guides and intrigued with acts of ceremony and ritual. I recieved the heart call for medicine work at a young age and have been a life long student ever since.
I grew up in the church, my parents were very active members and my father was at seminary studying to become a pastor before he passed away. Shortly thereafter, my mother and I became missionaries and continued so for several years. I returned to the States, enrolled in a religious high school and contributed as much as I could to both school and church. Yet something never quite fit.
I was well into my adult years (after I left the church) when I started to ask about my lineage as these gifts are usually passed down through the maternal line. My mother immigrated from the Philippines and has limited recollection of ceremonial rites and Ancient Filipino practices. There has been so much history that was lost due to the colonization and religious occupation of the islands. But from what we discovered, I now know I come from a long lineage of Medicine Women, Seers and most likely Catalonans; this is where the pieces started to come together.
After years of study, workshops, mentorships + practice I have come into my own as a Medicine Worker. I have sought out the teachings of my lineage, worked alongside elders and have been granted permission to step into my place as a healer. My work centers around guiding Women to connect with their spirits, helping Mothers find beauty + contentedness within this sacred role and to inspire intentional living through practical everyday practices. I am also learning that there is a need to share with our male partners the way of the Divine Feminine in the form of language, lens and experience of living in a patriarchal system, especially spiritually; healing that wound and balancing the feminine/masculine in us all. Home Education is a comfort zone for me yet is only one way in which I can express the imporatance of living by example. It has brought with it a richness of seasonal rhythms and rituals into our home, deepened the idea of a family + given me an education in itself.
Knitting together my years of study, practice and creating I am honored to hold space for those looking to spritiually shift, heal and connect with the Divine.
I am simply a woman living out the wild call of my heart, to join in story with other like-spirited individuals and to be as open as I can.
