***Because of how booked in advance I am, I am more than happy to reschedule clients when given the proper amount of notice. The block of time I schedule you is yours and yours alone, so it is difficult to fill the spots on short notice. If rescheduling is needed, please give me at least one week notice. If less than one week notice is given, you may not be promised another booking spot.***
