About Eric W
Look at you! Allow yourself a happy dance…you’ve taken a step of self-love to find how cuddle therapy and you fit together. Thank you for taking care of yourself in this way. I’m proud of you already.
When I first discovered cuddle therapy, it wasn’t just the cuddles that embraced me in welcome; it was the clear communication and empowerment that this medium cultivates. Though I knew I loved the boundary-setting and truth-speaking modeled herein, I knew I wasn’t good at it. It was through guided practice in safe space that I have come to be the sovereign adult I am now – and this feeling of security within myself is what I want to help you foster as well. I have experienced the phenomenon of empowered touch to fast track my brain’s growth in new habits and beliefs.
If you’re also feeling unsure of your path to growth, let us hold space together for you and all that you are, just as my mentors did for me – because guess what? You are worthy of receiving everything you ask for.
I look forward to meeting you and walking beside you in these steps of your journey.
Session information from Eric W
In addition to my Seattle area practice, I am accepting new clients in the Palm Springs, CA area, with visits planned every one to two months.
Starting something new can be daunting, but here’s what you can expect as we begin:
The “Request a Session” button will take you to a form to give me some of your basic contact information and provide a space for you to ask questions, describe your interest in cuddle therapy, and review the Cuddlist Code of Conduct.
Once you submit the form, I will reach out to you to make sure we are a good match. (Please indicate within the form the best way to contact you. Unless otherwise specified, I will default to a call/voicemail/text.)
When you arrive for your session, I will have a tidy, odor-neutral space for us that includes a bed, cushions and blankets on the floor, and relaxing music. While many enjoy cuddling on a bed, you will have full choice in where/how/if we cuddle – your comfort is my number one priority.
If I’m coming to your home for our session, I ask that you have a tidy, odor-neutral space with either a couch, cushions and blankets on the floor, or a made, clean bed. I am comfortable with animals so long as their presence is soothing to you.
COVID-19 Disclosure: I will be receiving my second COVID-19 Vaccination at the beginning of April and will begin offering in-person services toward the end of the month. Please review the CDC recommendations for socialization between fully vaccinated individuals to make a fully-informed decision of your own risk: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/fully-vaccinated-guidance.html
I am located in the Finn Hill neighborhood of Kirkland (98034) and accept outcalls within a 20 mile radius for an additional travel fee of $15*, no matter the length of the session. (For those in the Palm Springs area, my travel fee is $40* and I schedule in blocks based around my travel to the area. My first-time-client minimum is one hour and my established client minimum is two hours per trip down – though those could be separated into two sessions if you wish.)
My location is accessible from Juanita Drive NE, and near the Juanita Woodlands Park and Holmes Point Drive. The closest bus stop is about 1.7 miles from my place, near the intersection of 84th Ave NE and NE 132nd St and I am happy to pick you up from the bus stop with prior arrangement.
Lily is our adorable in-house chiweenie (chihuahua/dachshund mix) and protector of the house. However, she will remain in a separate area of the house for the duration of our session.
I accept Cash, Venmo, CashApp, PayPal, Zelle for payment. If you wish to pay by personal check after our third session together, I will be happy to accept those as well. Once our session is scheduled, I ask that cancellations be made the day before our set session and a full refund will be made. If notice is less than this, a $20 cancellation fee will result. Thank you for respecting my time and schedule.
*Travel fees will be gladly waived for ADA clients.
