The healing power of feeling support and kindness from another human being is unparalleled. I enjoy building communities of mutual support and finding new ways to experience and share with others.
I have had clients come to me for reasons ranging from being stressed out from Finals or needing a bit of a break from little ones to dealing with serious mental illness and/or recovering from trauma. Every reason is valid. I work to provide a healing space in which you feel safe and comfortable, regardless of your reasons for being there. Open to all races, religions, genders, sexual orientations, ages (above 18), and body types.
My work asks nothing more than for you to be yourself in a zone free of judgement or expectation. I have helped facilitate various therapies through which I have seen and experienced first hand what physical contact and affection can provide to someone in need. I feel incredibly lucky that my path intersects with those of so many wonderful people, and would love for you to be one of them. I would be honored to get to know you and accompany you on your journey, even if only for a few steps.
Some difficult areas in which I have first-hand personal experience:
– Surviving rape/sexual assault
– Recovering from emotional abuse
– Living with mental illness
– Losing a loved one/parent
“I feel more grounded since our sessions and reassured that I can access more support around the grief. I found the tentativeness really interesting and it was good to observe that with no expectation or pressure. I think that is what I expect from the next session too- to see if I can tune in more to what I want and need physically.” Cuddle Client, 51
“I decided to try cuddle therapy in the wake of a breakup when months of talk therapy weren’t quite enough. I knew I was going to be fine but I struggled to really feel that way. It was a very foreign situation for me but Rellian was warm and welcoming and quickly put me at ease. It was an incredibly calming experience and afterward, I felt an inexplicable sense that everything was going to be OK.” – Cuddle Client, 28
“I just want to thank you for the sessions. They have opened up a lot for me and I was able to relax into cuddling with my girlfriends last night with more comfort and ease. I look forward to continuing to work with you in the future.” – Cuddle Client, 47
Session information from Rellian
I like to play music (requests welcomed) and sometimes light a scented candle or diffuse essential oils. We begin by establishing comfortable consensual communication agreements and let our personal preferences and comfort guide us from there. I encourage my clients to voice their wants and needs as well as to communicate any intentions or goals they may have for our time together.
Before scheduling a session, we will have a phone conversation to establish rapport and affirm that we are a good fit for one another. I also like to give potential clients an opportunity to ask questions and voice concerns before committing to anything. For outcalls, we will meet in a public place for up to 5 minutes just prior to the session.
**24 HOUR CANCELATION POLICY**
If you have to cancel, please give me 24 hours notice. If you cancel within 24 hours or simply do not show up, I will still charge for the session.
If you are running late, please let me know. If I have time I will gladly extend the session, but will still charge for the time booked.
Please respect my work and my time.
