Helping people feel calm, safe, loved, and at peace is my passion. Being a vegan for the last 10 years drastically enhanced my ability to connect with all beings and myself. Combined with my strong love for touch, this makes me a powerful generator of love, connection, and peace. I would love for you to experience the deep fulfillment and healing that comes from having the most important human need (connection) met through my caring touch and loving presence.
Living a healthy, self-loving life while respecting others is my priority. I was born in beautiful Slovakia and moved to the United States in 2018 where I worked as a nanny and a senior caregiver. I strive to always be respectful, attentive, honest, loyal, and reliable. My biggest hobby is learning about behavioral psychology and nutrition. I also have a Relaxation Swedish Massage Training which helps me provide the best fulfilling cuddling experience.
When I came across the Cuddlist website I felt thrilled because I finally found a way to connect with people in the way that brings me the most pleasure using my favorite love language-touch!
It can be very hard to find a comforting, platonic, caring touch in today’s society, especially when we are single. Cuddling sessions can fill that need and help us approach future relationships from a place of fulfillment rather than from a place of lack. If we aren’t careful, we can develop a touch-deprived neediness that can cause us to make poor long-term relationship decisions. Satisfying our need for safe connection and touch makes us more relaxed, confident, and happy which leads to becoming way more attractive! Date with confidence, not neediness.
Most of us grow up feeling starved of an undivided presence, attention, and affection due to being neglected, which can happen totally unintentionally. During childhood, emotional safety, being comforted, and having your feelings validated, heard, seen, felt, and understood are needs that are supposed to be met. When they are not met, it sets us up for an unhappy and unfulfilling life and we may feel starved and depressed as an adult. This kind of trauma is often harder to spot than any other abuse because it is about the things that were missing – what was not there and what was not done as opposed to the abuse that was done and visible. As a result, we grow up into adults asking ourselves “what is wrong with me” because our childhood was seemingly “perfect” yet we feel like life is just too painful and full of suffering. The thing is that if growing up your emotional needs were met, you would grow up into a thriving, healthy human living a fulfilling life. That is just not the case for many people.
The good news is that we can reparent our inner child by experiencing all that was missing and heal the relational trauma by seeking a deep connection, safety, and comfort from people that are able to provide it to us.
Cuddle therapy provides a beautiful way of satisfying the need for connection that can be very difficult to fulfill in our ordinary lives. Getting a full unconditional presence and undivided attention while feeling completely emotionally safe, and comforted by a nurturing person, is life-changing! When our need for connection is not met, we tend to cope with emptiness by filling up the void with food, substances, and harmful behaviors. When our brain feels safe and our emotional needs are met, the brain can focus on growth, love, and success much easier.

Respecting this procedure helps me to become more comfortable with you as we determine whether we really are a good fit. You’ll have time to speak about any desires, questions, or concerns you may have. We’ll usually schedule our first cuddle session during this conversation.

This deposit counts towards your session fee and is forfeited if there is a last minute cancellation. At the beginning of the session, you pay the balance with cash, Venmo, CashApp, Zelle, or PayPal.
What to Expect
When you are with me, I want you to feel welcome and relaxed, as though you are on vacation with someone who cares about you. You have my complete attention, and I’m in no hurry. Stress falls away.
You can expect a nice handshake with an invitation to a warm hug. It’s perfectly fine to say no to this invitation to touch.
From the beginning, communication like this serves to establish trust. It’s important that we build trust from the start. We follow with a short conversation, making a commitment to keep open communication about the rich platonic touch experience we are creating. It is helpful to have a few ideas in mind for how you would like to begin your cuddle session, so think about it beforehand.
Our agreements and established intentions carry us through our session, ensuring that comfort, needs, and boundaries are being communicated and respected all around throughout our time together. This gives us a safe space to discover the shape of our cuddling. While staying firmly within the boundaries of the Cuddlist Code of Conduct, I enjoy being creative during our session. Limited only by imagination, our cuddling becomes a dance of mutual consent.
