You can drop in or schedule an appointment for 30, 60, or 90 minutes. 30-minute appointments are great when you have a few questions. If you are working on a draft of several pages or planning to develop ideas, better to make a 60-minute appointment.

For online appointments, we recommend a minimum of 60 minutes.
