About Michelle

(Pronouns: She/Her)

Fully Vaccinated for COVID19, Boosted Nov 23, 2021 and Sept 30, 2022.

Cuddlist Certified Practitioner since December 2015, with over 940 in-person session hours.

If you are seeking a “nurturing mom” experience or looking to heal some mother wounds, I’m your Cuddlist! In our sessions, you’ll feel unconditional acceptance.  You’ll feel loved and cared for.  You’ll feel seen and heard.  I’m here to support you.

With a clinically-minded toolbox, I specialize in working with clients with trauma, addiction, PTSD, depression, and anxiety.  Some of these sessions never even include touch.  We will move at your pace. I work really well with clients needing exposure-type therapy.

Some of my favorite books are Mother Hunger, What Happened to You?, Body Keeps the Score, When the Body Says No: Understanding the Stress-Disease ConnectionHold Me Tight, The Gift of Imperfection, and Wired for Love.

I’m a relationship geek and very friendly to alternative lifestyles.  Your weird isn’t weird to me.

My clients are dedicated to growth and schedule monthly sessions.  By sharing safe space consistently, your nervous system can start to rewire for safety and security.  In that session safety, the world starts to feel safer too.

Thank you for being brave and asking for the connection you want.~Michelle Renee

“Michelle is a passionate, ever-evolving professional. Over the course of years that we’ve been colleagues, I’ve always benefitted from her loving, kind, bright presence. I trust Michelle and refer clients her way regularly. If you’re considering her services, I strongly recommend that you get to know this caring practitioner.” ~ Jean Franzblau, Cuddle Sanctuary

*** Note, I serve Baltimore/DC, San Diego and Philadelphia monthly ***

COVID-19 | I completed my COVID-19 vaccinations on February 3, 2021 and received my booster on November 23, 2021. I do not require masks in my sessions but am happy to wear one if the client would like.  I do not require my clients to disclose vaccine status.

BALTIMORE/DC AREA | I’m available for incalls in Towson.  My location does require the use of stairs (2nd floor) and is the home to two cats and a small dog.  None will be part of our session but if allergies are an issue, you need to know.  This is also a non-smoking space and does have air conditioning.
