Session Rate: $80/hour + Travel Fee for Outcalls beyond Santa Cruz area
Santa Cruz, CA
Be met right where you are. Be safe, be held, and be seen. Breathe, relax, and feel accepted through the simplicity of loving warmth and pure presence. This is what I love about cuddle sessions!
I am an intuitive guide who risked a departure from my science degree and career to dive into the question: What gives life meaning? I couldn’t understand why, if I was working so hard and appearing to be so successful, I still felt unhappy and unfulfilled. I discovered that I needed deeper, more authentic connection with others (and myself!).
What’s important to me about professional therapeutic touch is the incredible gap that it bridges between the Truth of who we are and the social constructs in which we live. Humans desperately need touch, but they have been conditioned to be afraid of it—afraid of asking for it, afraid of even sensing what they need.
Therapeutic touch combined with abiding presence is so powerful. It can be deeply connecting and nourishing, with more impact than talk therapy. My goal is for you to feel deeply relaxed and physically lighter; to feel seen and a sense of wholeness; to feel alive and welcome in your body.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY:
– It was a really empowering evening. You have quite an amazing intuition for connecting with people. Your support is really appreciated.
– There has been such a significant — some might say incredibly and profoundly unbelievable — improvement in my health since I began seeing you in sessions, that I want to share with others what you have done for me.
– I met a woman and we have developed a strong connection. She’s pointed out how present I seem to appear to her and I think the opportunity to practice with you helped me greatly!
– Thank you so much for everything you do and have given me. I felt like I was floating on a cloud on the drive home and still feel the same.
– Stunning. I walked right into it. You changed everything. New everything. You are the bomb. You have got it down. Well done.
– I must say to finally have found the nurturing and healing that I have in your arms is a wonderful thing. The love you have unconditionally shown me is a good thing, a very good thing.
– Being enjoyed and appreciated by you feels so good and meaningful to me. I value you, your trust, open-heartedness, and invitation. I experienced our time as rich, deepening, sincere, heartful, fun, and delicious.
Session information from Clarissa
I have a cozy, inviting space for cuddling and connecting. I also offer out-calls, and I enjoy supporting clients (women, men, and everyone else) create a warm space that they can continue to marinate in after I leave. For outcalls that are more than 10 miles outside the 95062 zip code, my travel fee is $.75/mile each way. I accept payment via PayPal or Square.
I like to connect via phone or video first, so we can establish a comfort level. To start your session, we’ll review the basics to create a safe container. As I guide and support you in discovering and speaking your boundaries and wants, you’ll find yourself relaxing without even trying. You will breathe, rest, and feel fully accepted through the simplicity of loving touch and presence.
You will be amazed before you are halfway through.
