(1) apply amount to a future session within one calendar year of the scheduled session/due date or (2) the non-refundable retainer WILL be refunded within 7-10 business days of session cancellation.

We are taking precautions and actions to be as healthy and happy as possible.

Within 24 hours prior to your session, you will receive:
