Re: How does your T greet you?

My T is in a solo private practice. She has a private closed off waiting area (so you cannot see the previous client leaving).

When she comes in to get me, she will usually say something, as in "Good morning", "Welcome back" (if it's been awhile) ... some sort of greeting. Then I walk ahead of her to open the door to her office. She shuts the door behind herself.

When I leave, she stays seated, or gets up as I walk past her, and I let myself out, sometimes muttering quietly to myself about the session, "What a waste of time today was," or "She was snippy today wasn't she," or the better ones, "Ahhh, just what I needed to start my day."

Bent, it's interesting that a part of you doesn't feel safe to shut the door behind you. Have you ever discussed this with your T? My silly therapyism --- I refuse to push the button to acknowledge that I'm there. It makes a ringing sound, and I hate the thought of interrupting a client that could be in there. She has never mentioned to me, she just knows that I'm always on time and always comes out to get me.
