I ask that on your first session, you arrive a few minutes early with the necessary paperwork (see below) completed.  I will need these for my files.  Please let me know in advance if you do not have access to a printer.  We can arrange then to have you arrive 20 minutes ahead of time in that case so I can provide you with the paperwork and you can complete it in the waiting room.
