I was looking for assistance from Alyssa regarding some spellwork for a situation I had recently. I chose to do a consult prior instead of just emailing a summary. Consults done live are so much better and for a little extra cost, I was able to explain things in more detail and Alyssa was able to ask questions and we were able to nail down what plan of action would work best. You're able to end the session feeling good about what will be done on your behalf or actually learn more about the situation you have from her expertise. So I definitely recommend a consult if you're unsure. usually when we're on the fence, it's just a matter of needing more information!
