I interviewed two T's who had offices in their homes before settling on the one I have now. They both did the same thing that you describe- ended the sesson at the door of their offices, Then I was on my own, going down hallways, opening and closing more doors, etc. But if they had come all the way to the door to the outside with me, there probably would have been a sort of dual relationship involving small talk,etc., so I think they all do the right thing. There are times when it feels lonely, but perhaps it would anyway, afterwards.

So now I get to go in an underground parking lot which is always perilously close to being full, take an elevator, and then have to deal with a complex lock system to my T's office, involving pressing one of 19 buttons, turning a lever just afterwards, and then opening the door with the door-handle. You have to do this exactly right, with the proper timing, When I first came, I was so anxious that I never did it right, and had to wait until someone came out in order to get in. But the T. I see inside makes it all worth it- and I HAVE learned to open the door!
