While your partner can certainly accompany you to the clinic, they are not permitted in the treatment room during your appointments — unless there is a technique to be taught or some educational material to review, and both you and I agree it is appropriate for your partner to be present during that time. Exceptions will be made for religious, cultural or psychosocial reasons on a case-by-case basis. Please let me know prior to your first appointment if having your partner or another person present during treatment is something that you prefer or require and I will be sure to accommodate you.
