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 1,000 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.

I value safety, which to me includes bodily autonomy, informed consent, personal choice, and authentic expression.  With a clinically-minded toolbox, I specialize in working with clients with trauma, addiction, PTSD, CPTSD, 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 Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents, 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 regular 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
