about me

“…and so, the same air she breathed into me, I breathe into others, to bring life & love…”

i come from a lineage of ancestral healers on both sides of my family and am honored to work spiritually alongside my lola nena and nanay carnay. i bring with me resilience and guidance of the indigenous tao (people) of the philippines. my first spiritual teacher is my mother who taught me the roots and practice of hilot (indigenous filipinx healing). and as a babaylan, i connect with spirit and ancestral guides. i received my level 1 & 2 reiki training (japanese healing) with marie kyoko morohoshi in "buliyum puyuuk (mt shasta) as referred to by the winnemem wintu tribe." i am currently studying with cosme castanieto.

as a first-generation queer pinay, i am passionate about working with pinays, lgbtqia+ bipoc & transitional age youth. i've been involved in youth and lgbtqia+ activism for over ten years and on an ongoing journey of spiritual activism, focused on reclamation and remembering.

i truly stepped into alignment after i gave birth to teyo. i felt the love and light of my ancestors, womxn in my life, and inner strength. i am honored and grateful for this healing legacy and i look forward to guiding you, working towards connecting your higher self, human being & ego.

maraming salamat.

"In the 6 months that I have been working with Daphnee I have not only healed deeply, but also witnessed a shining example of what it looks like to work with someone that is a benevolent community leader and successfully integrated their social activism with spiritual practice. 

Daphnee’s work is nothing short of masterful- her ability to weave the needs of the spirit and the ancestors with human ego are truly a gift.  Her connection to spirit & the true essence of compassion allow her to work with any person to meet them where they are. I also feel that she very much specializes in folks that are actively doing their decolonization work and are needing to align and transform. In sincerity as a healer myself, Daphnee is a rare force, she’s led me through a spiritual rebirthing this year and held such powerful space the entire time."
