Here are some frequently asked questions and common responses:
What is Surrogate Partner Therapy (SPT) and is it for me?
Surrogate Partner Therapy is generally a good fit for non-partnered clients that would benefit from a broader container than Human Connection Coaching allows for. A supervising clinician (therapist) is required. You can learn more here and don’t hesitate to reach out for additional guidance.
What if I don’t have a therapist?
If you are interested in Surrogate Partner Therapy and don’t have a therapist, please contact me. I have therapists I can refer you to.
What is “Human Connection Coaching”?
In short, Human Connection Coaching has the purpose of helping you connect better with yourself and others. We do that through exploring boundaries, communication and sometimes touch. You can read more about it here. Another great resource, and suggested reading for all coaching and surrogate clients, is the book The Art of Receiving and Giving by Betty Martin. This is also a good option for clients not ready for a triadic model relationship with a therapist.
How much will it cost?
Please inquire as each client’s needs are different. A sliding scale is available for minority groups. Please reach out.
Will Insurance Pay for This?
No. Insurance will not cover this type of work. Your insurance may cover your talk therapist.
What if I really just want cuddling?
Looking for a cuddling session? We can absolutely schedule that! You are invited to check out my profile at Cuddlist.com.
Does a session need to include touch?
No! Definitely not. While my background is in professional cuddling, touch is NEVER required. I meet my clients where they are.
Do you still offer Cuddle Parties?
Sometimes. While Covid has shut down all Cuddle Parties, they are on my radar for the future. Join my mailing list to keep up to date.
Where are you located?
I’m based in Baltimore, Maryland and work across the DMV (Washington, DC, Virginia, Maryland) and Philadelphia. I also see clients once a month in San Diego, California. Outside of those areas? I’m happy to travel. Contact me to ask about your area. Also, consider sharing that you are interested in working with me if I come to your area by going to this form.
