So many people today are feeling touch deprived, isolated, and lonely. Sometimes you just want someone to spend time with who can focus on your needs. When you’re needing comforting touch due to stress, work, relationships, or health issues – therapeutic touch/cuddling can really help. Or you may find yourself at a time in your life where you just don’t have access to healthy platonic touch. In sessions I provide meaningful touch, connection, and a non-judgmental presence. You can look forward to a professional, comfortable, confidential cuddling experience. Whether it’s cuddling, back scratches, watching a movie and snuggling up on the couch, or having dinner together, your sessions can be tailored to meet your needs. Additionally, I can join you for outings (dinner, movies, concerts, etc.) if you’re interested in having a cuddle-friendly companion along for your fun activity!
Before becoming a Cuddlist, I completed a Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and taught for several years as a professor in Ethics and Cultural Diversity. When I’m not getting cozy with pillows and blankets, I enjoy music, travel, and science fiction. I’m thrilled to be working with Cuddlist.com due to its high standards of training and continuing education, which allow me to provide a positive, life-enhancing experience for my clients.
I offer customized sessions for your particular touch needs. Get in touch with me today to see how I can create a personalized plan for you.
To request a session with Robin, select the Request a Session button on this page. Within 24 hours I’ll contact you to have a free 15 minute chat to set up a session.
This is the minimum one hour cuddle session focusing on what you as the client are needing in therapeutic touch. Multiple hours can be booked as well, such as 2-hour or longer sessions.
An Extended Session can be spent cuddling, dining out, spending time at the park, going to the movies or a concert, or some other fun activity you’d like to share with a cuddle-friendly companion.
Connection Session/Phone & Video Chat
If you’d like to just talk, we can have a chat over the phone or via video chat (Skype, FaceTime, etc.). This is a great option for those living outside my area or those just wanting some warm conversation and connection.
More About Robin:
I’ve been in the business of helping others for many years now, and the most profound and best tool in shaping how I practice has been to do what feels right for me. It’s following my gut feeling and instinct about what is in alignment with my truth.
I do this by checking in with my body, my heart, and my thoughts. When I do this, I make decisions from a place of authenticity. I’m able to use my experience, training, and true self to work and live from a place of self-love sustained by healthy boundaries.
As a Therapeutic Touch Practitioner and Cuddle Party workshop Facilitator, I offer my true self to my clients. This is why it is so vital that I am clear about what I am a YES to and what I am NO to (healthy boundaries).
When I work with you, I offer you my most authentic self, and magically in the process, you also become more in touch with your most authentic self. This is the beauty, appreciation, and respect that I offer through Therapeutic Touch (aka Professional Cuddling).

Session information from Robin
What is therapeutic cuddling?
Cuddling sessions are a place where your needs for platonic, healthy touch, cuddling and emotional support are focused on and met by a trained, Professional Cuddler. How does cuddling look for you? It could be sitting, standing, lying down beside each other, hugging, leaning into, hands on heart, back to back, tracing skin, stroking the face and hair, holding hands, talking, laughing, breathing, or just BE-ing. During our session, we can talk or be silent, explore cuddling styles or remain in one cuddle the whole time–so ask for what you’d like! We can also cuddle while reading, movie watching, restorative yoga, eye-gazing, meditation, or spending time in nature. Some people like to go out to dinner, movies, concerts or museums and have a cuddle-friendly companion join them. You can pretty much cuddle anywhere!
Where are sessions held?
I have comfortable cuddle space where I can host in Lawrence, KS. If you’d prefer, I can also travel to you for outcalls up to an hour away from my location. If I travel to your location there is an added $35/hr travel expense and you will need to provide a valid ID to me in advance of the session.
What happens during a session?
We begin by creating an agreement to honor each other’s boundaries while we explore our own personal preferences. Mutual consent and respect create a safe space, trust, and comfort together. We both agree that if anything feels uncomfortable at any time or for any reason, that we will speak up or ask for a change in some way.
What about arousal?
Should you get aroused, you will never be judged or shamed for how your body is reacting. We don’t have control over whether arousal happens, but we can choose to not focus on it nor try to increase that state. Typically a change in position is all that’s needed.
What do we wear during a session?
Comfy clothes like lounge pants, t-shirt, gym shorts that reach mid-thigh, etc. You can also cuddle in street clothes like jeans and t-shirt.
How do I schedule a session with you?
When you submit a Request for a Session through my page Cuddlist.com/robin, please provide a phone number so that we can chat, in order to say hello and discuss any questions you may have before our first session. I will respond to your session request within 24 hours. I typically need 24-48 hours to schedule a session, depending upon my availability.
What forms of payment do you accept? What if I need to reschedule our session?
I can accept online electronic payments or cash at your session. If you need to cancel or reschedule, please give me at least 48 hours notice and we can arrange to see each other another time.
How should I prepare for my first session?
My sessions are client-led, so we’re going to focus on what you’d like to experience during the session. I suggest to clients that they Google cuddle positions to get an idea of the many different ways that we can cuddle!
