I don't make appointments for getting acquainted sessions as I might have an unplanned meeting that I must attend. However, some good times for getting acquainted are (these are tentative - email me before to tell me you're coming and wait for my response):
Thursday - 8-5 - 1:00-2:30 p.m.
Friday - 8-6 - 7:00-11:00 a.m., 12:00 - 2:30 p.m.
Monday - 8-9 - 7:00-11:00 a.m.
Hope this helps you plan your time. AND, be sure to bring your completed personal information sheet. No get acquainted session without completed personal information sheet.
