About Michelle

(Pronouns: She/Her)

Cuddlist Certified Practitioner since December 2015, with over 340 in-person session hours.

As a Human Connection Coach, I support clients in meeting their goals around human connection and human contact. 

As a mother, daughter and former-wife who has managed through major hurdles in my life, I know what it’s like to feel tired and lost.  It’s hard to know who to be vulnerable with.  It’s hard to feel safe.  We’ve spent so much time in our fight or flight.

As a neuroscience geek, I understand the benefits of secure attachment; inviting your nervous system to sink up with mine, essentially rewiring it to spend more time in the calm zone where we can think AND feel at the same time; and the healing that can come from safe relationships.

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.

I specialize in working with clients with addiction, PTSD, depression and anxiety.  Some of these sessions never even include touch.  We will move at your pace.

Some of my favorite books lately are Untamed, 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 weekly 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

Session information from Michelle

After you request a session, please watch for an email.  I’ll be sending a link to schedule a call so we can learn a bit more about each other.  This call is required for all new clients. There will be a payment of $40 required to schedule this call. This payment will be used as a deposit for our first session if we decide to work together. If we meet and either of us decide to not work together, I will refund this fee. If you do not show for this scheduled appointment and do not cancel before the scheduled time, I will not refund this fee.

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.  I will require the use of masks during our sessions, due to COVID, which I will provide.  All surfaces are cleaned between each client.  A health check-in before our session and a temperature check at the start of our session will also be required.  I will not schedule more than 1 session a day and my session length minimum is 90 minutes.

Outcalls are available across the DMV.

**If you have a physical disability, and live within a 30 minute radius, please indicate that in your request form. I will waive all travel fees because my space is not accessible.
