About Michelle

(Pronouns: She/Her)

Cuddlist Certified Practitioner since December, 2015, with over 200 session hours.

Nurturing, it’s something I notice more and more of my clients seeking.  In fact, when I receive a session as a client, it’s exactly what I’m looking for too.  I just want to be held, to feel safe, and to feel cared for.  I’ll lay in the practitioner’s lap and ask them to pet my hair.  No wonder my clients seek the same!  

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.

In our session, 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 Body Keeps the Score, Hold Me Tight, The Gift of Imperfection and Wired for Love.

If you are hesitant or want to meet me before inquiring about a session, I offer regularly scheduled “Coffee with a Cuddlist” events around San Diego.  You can follow me on social media for the next date.  I’d love to meet you!

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

There is nothing wrong in wanting to feel (insert the feeling you seek)!   Thank you for being brave and asking for what you want.~Michelle Renee

Recent review:  “I had my first session with Michelle and while she was very open in discussing my wants and needs ahead of time, I still had some doubts of how my experience would be. Those doubts quickly melted away as soon as we engaged in our session. I found my experience to be very genuine, intimate and trusting as if we had already knew each other and felt “at home” together. She was very welcoming and inviting. I’m looking forward to our next session and continuing our bond!”

Session information from Michelle

After you request a session, please watch for an email or text.  I’ll be sending a link to schedule a quick call so we can meet each other.

I happily offer same-day sessions to established clients.

I do in-calls (you come to my location) in the Rancho Bernardo area of San Diego. I also offer outcalls.  Outcalls require a short video call before booking. Ask about travel fees.

My location requires the use of stairs. Two cats and a small dog do reside at my location.  This is important to know if allergies are an issue. 

**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.

Recent review: “You are wonderful! I can’t believe how gifted you are at drawing out and comforting others. I found the session to be very helpful in breaking through a barrier. I can be extroverted when the situation calls for it, but my nature is much more reserved. I sometimes overthink my responses and the intentions/ motivations of others. You seem to be very comfortable in your own skin which makes your clients less inhibited… You offer a much needed service to grieving, innocent souls.”
