Must already be a current client to book a follow-up appointment.
Need extra support? This is a great option! I give every client 2 weeks of unlimited text/email/phone support after each consult, but you may have a few quick questions, that don’t require a full consult. I’m happy to continue to support!
$25 to answer new issue questions with resources and experience for more peace of mind. Think of it as a mini session with Melissa.
Note: This is for current clients only. I will respond to texts/emails/calls within 24 hours. I reserve the right to determine if the new issue requires a full consult as certain quick questions maybe a more involved issue.
