Your SESSION TIME begins when you arrive and ends when you depart.
In other words, the time settling in, sharing what's going on, removing shoes, etc. in the beginning as well as moving off the table and re-orienting to the external world is all part of the SESSION TIME.
How you use your time is primarily up to you.
You can maximize your THERAPEUTIC TIME by using the restroom prior to arrival, wearing simple clothing, considering parking and how you'd like to pay.
You may bring a check, exact cash or use an electronic form of payment. Venmo, Apple Pay and Zelle are the options that can be used in advance or after your appointment.
