First Day Back! 

Well, after about 6 months, we are so excited that we were able to welcome clients back today as we have re-opened! 

Today, September 14th, was our first day back. Although there were some nerves, everyone did amazing today! The staff has been working hard to prepare the space for the safe return of clients and it was more than worth it to see our amazing clients come back. We are so proud of them for working so hard to follow the safety protocols in place during COVID. We have missed them so much and their patience as we have transitioned back has been so greatly appreciated. Although they had some nerves, they were fantastic.

Here's to our mighty return!
