What to expect

When you arrive, text me and I'll greet you. I recommend bringing sunglasses, a hat and water.  We can walk and talk or sit where you feel comfortable. I will dress casually to avoid drawing attention. It can actually be a fun way to have a session! Let's work together outside in beautiful nature.
