3What is your typical process for working with a new client?
I will ask you to fill out client information forms prior to our initial meeting. This will allow me to gather information and learn some basics about who you are and where you are. These will help me guiding you towards where you want to go. The initial session will take about 30 minutes via phone, Web or In-Person based on your own preference. We will focus on areas you would like to focus on as well as frequency of our sessions, duration of sessions as well as discussion on general client agreements.
