more about me

Born and based in Tiohtià:ke, colonially known as Montreal, with roots in Cebu Philippines, I combine all my different areas of experience and knowledge to create and develop communities where people (especially BIPOC women) can remember and reclaim who they are, discover and embody their Dharma, and feel safe and supported to find and take their place in the world.I would love to support you on your path to reclaiming your personal joy and power and creating more meaningful human connections.My personal journey began young. As the daughter of immigrant parents, I was expected to work hard, keep my head down, and be a good Catholic girl. I learned quickly how to people-please, and I moved through my 20s checking off the boxes: University degree, marriage, successful business, have a family. I had all the fixings of a shiny, perfect, aspirational life, but I struggled deeply with low self-worth, insecurity, and self-doubt.

Ultimately, my background and experience working in marketing helped me reach and connect with the right people when I co-founded Les Lilas Society and Centre Kapwa . I have now spent the last 6 years holding space for thousands of women/x, helping them feel seen, heard, and more connected to their loved ones and themselves.

These days, you can find me attending soulful retreats, workshops, and classes to deepen my own practice and stay inspired to keep creating compassionate communities that can help people reclaim and remember who they are. In my spare time, you’ll find me talking to trees with my daughter at the park.

Ultimately, the passion (and gift) that I am most grateful for is my ability to help people connect to others, and most importantly, themselves in more meaningful ways. My own need for authentic, sometimes messy, but always profound human connection has led me to this moment. And if you stumbled upon this page, chances are that’s exactly what you’re searching for too.Don't be shy to reach out when you feel ready to start your journey towards self-reclamation. Whatever your reasons for being here, I’m so happy you found me, and I am so excited to discover your unique talents, abilities, and gifts.

“The different things that Desiree has introduced me to has allowed me to be more intentional, mindful and more importantly...not guilty! It’s not the 90min calls or the encouraging texts, it’s the combination of all the things she has done to become who she is, her energy and her message that all contributes and makes a difference in my life.”

"Desiree is the person that gave me the support I needed to break free from my negative thoughts and helped me get to my next step ."

"Desiree did a Human Design reading for me. I was skeptical at first if I am to be honest, but was absolutely blown away by the result! Not only has it clarified so much, but it gave me the clarity and direction I was looking for - which is where to focus my time and energy in the new year. Thank you Des!"

“Desiree is amazing. She’s easy to talk to and the conversation flows smoothly. She has great advice and really listens. She is open minded (which I love) and insightful. She’s a fellow Empath, which makes the conversation that much easier, as, for me, it meant that she could see my vision and properly guide me in the direction I should go. She gave me ideas without being pushy and she made me feel heard and understood. I 1000% recommend her for coaching sessions and as a wonderful and attentive sounding board. She’s an attentive listener to boot. THAT’S hard to find. Thank you Desiree for helping me, I can’t say enough about you.”

"My Human Design reading with Desiree was a massive permission slip to be more discerning of my energy. I learnt tips on how to come back to myself and use my energy wisely. Also learning how I generate my own energy, and what lights me up and brings me forward, was phenomenal!! I can't wait to implement that in my life so I can really live BIG!"

"Desiree pushes you outside of your comfort zone in a challenging yet loving way, and leaves you with tools, resources, ideas and connections that will help you and your projects thrive. "

Maki, Canada

I had a beautiful Human Design session with Desiree. She opened my thoughts to things I didn't think were possible to heal. I was looking for ways, tools and resources to improve challenging areas of my life. Of course, she went beyond my expectations and offered so much clarity on myself and on motherhood. I'm so appreciative and grateful for this session with Desiree.

"Some people have a knack for human connection and are the "connectors" in their respective circles and beyond. Desiree is one of those people. I met Desiree during an event organized by Les Lilas and her warm and bubbly personality instantaneously won me over! I knew I wanted to stay in touch with her but little did I know how instrumental she would be for my current business. After reconnecting to catch up, I casually spoke to her about my new boutique consulting firm I started, and she naturally started brainstorming ideas with me as to where I could take my business, how to take advantage of my life as a mom with 2 young children, etc... From this casual conversation came an idea that will definitely be a success. I cannot thank her enough for her instinct, her flair and her generosity. Thank you Desiree!"

My human design reading with Desiree was super enlightening. She explained everything in a calm & easy to digest way. Listening and learning about our inner workings can be daunting at times, but Desiree truly created a safe space that I felt super comfortable in! Her reading encouraged me to experiment with my creativity & become more aware of what is energizing me vs draining me. Highly recommend!

Doing a Human Design reading with Desiree was such a delightful experience and gift to myself. Her devoted, loving and gentle approach allowed me to reconnect with the true color of my energy. It also brought me on the path to cherish the energy that I bring in the world, but choosing as well one that I welcome in my life.
