About Ernesto


“I had life-altering epiphanies from Ernesto’s incredible therapy sessions.
Masterfully, he conveyed the healing power of compassion. By BEING compassion, he stripped me of my artificial layers, so that I could experience who I truly am.
It was wonderful! Ernesto has given me a series of spiritual, healing treatments that allowed me to come into my own power. You’re the best, EO”
