About Jon

My name is Jon and I bring 15 years of experience in the cuddling profession, first as a facilitator, now as an individual therapeutic practitioner. In addition to my work in cuddling, I am a scientist and musician, passionate about gender and embodiment work, and have enjoyed climbing mountains and flying hang gliders over the years.




I see folks for many different reasons and often work with those coming from consent breakdowns and violations and wanting to reconnect to their agency and power; but also those dealing with loneliness, or perhaps enjoying a great social or family life but one that just doesn’t meet their needs for physical touch. Our backgrounds, life experiences, personal and professional identities, and cuddle-comfort-levels all influence what we want and need too, so whether you’re trying to satiate skin-hunger, strengthen your personal voice, find interpersonal comfort and closeness, practice boundary and communication skills for better relationships, or “just” relax and give your mind, body, and spirit some well-deserved TLC, we’ll craft custom sessions that move at your pace, meet you where you’re at, and feel great.


Sometimes people imagine that cuddle therapy is full body spooning from the moment of arrival until departure. That’s a great available option if you want it but many clients don’t, or at least don’t want to start there.

The heart of cuddle therapy is connecting with another human in respite from daily social niceties, unspoken rules and judgements, and with the support of a different set of clear boundaries and expansive possibilities that don’t require you to change or apologize for who you are or what you want.

It’s a time for you to be as real or private as you wish, to do nothing that your heart doesn’t desire, to ask for what you want with childlike freedom, change your mind with reckless abandon, be clumsy, laugh, tear up, get help navigating the process, and all the while know that your travel companion is only giving what they can wholeheartedly say yes to, so the only person you need to care for is yourself.

You’ll enter a space where tons of platonic touch is on the menu and there for the asking, including hugs, hand massages, head scratching, snuggling, and more; so is conversation, music, stretching, walking, playing a board game, or just sitting peacefully in each other’s presence for that matter. It’s just as much about the quality and freedom of interaction as it is about the particular activity of the moment. Since open possibility can be challenging too, I’ll help you reflect if you don’t know where to begin.


Please note that if you are seeking a sexual experience or anything beyond platonic time-bounded connection, more power to you! However, you will not find it here. I hope you get what you’re looking for and you’ll get there faster if you don’t spend time searching where it ain’t! If you are uncertain about where the line is, I am happy to help clarify that too.

If you are part of another organization I work for or if we have a separate personal or professional relationship characterized by power differential or potential conflict of interest, it is likely I will not be able to see you as a client, please reach out to discuss if you are uncertain.


I look forward to meeting you and to creating a safe, warm, non-judgemental and empowered space for us to connect.

Session information from Jon

Once you reach out to me, I will schedule a brief phone call with you to learn more about your needs, answer questions, confirm our Code of Conduct, make sure we are a good fit, and discuss any logistics.

Sessions may take place at my home or at a suitable location of your choosing. If at another location, there will be an outcall fee based on time and expense of travel. I will determine this fee based on your location and inform you prior to booking the first session.

When you arrive, I will orient you to my home and cuddle space, offer you a glass of water, and ask if you have a music preference. You can wear comfy clothes or change when you get here. Please wear a minimum of t-shirt and shorts, and please arrive having bathed/showered within the last 12 hours. I promise to be just as prepared!

During our first session, we will start by taking some time to connect and build the agreements that we both need to feel safe and comfortable, and to make sure that our time together is tailored to best meet your needs and interests. We can then transition into cuddling at your readiness.

Recording Policy:

Clients should be aware that all sessions are video recorded without sound. A recording policy protects both cuddlist and cuddlee by documenting the legality and industry compliance of session activities and can serve as evidence in the very unlikely case of harm enacted by either party. Videos are locally stored and deleted after 30 days, unless otherwise requested by the client or by law enforcement.

You have a right to your footage. You may request a copy of the recording of your session and it will be shared promptly without fee or any questions asked. Requests must be made within the 30 day period following a session to ensure that the footage is available. In my four years of practice no recording has ever been viewed by a third party, or by myself other than to verify the correct functioning of the recording equipment. I am happy to answer any additional questions you may have about this policy.


I currently accept cash, cheque, and e-transfer only.
Cancellation Policy: 24 hour notice or 50% fee
