“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a
listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.'
Leo F. Buscaglia
Whatever brought you to my page, I’m so glad you are here.
If you want to feel less alone, anxious or sad
If you want to feel more connection, joy, and fulfillment
If you need/want more touch in your life, but it doesn't feel safe
If you just think cuddling is fantastic...
You are in exactly the right place. I can’t wait to meet you and hopefully be a part of an experience that makes your life better.
Since 2015 I've been supporting clients as a Cuddle Therapist and Boundaries and Consent Educator in both individual and group settings. In 2017 I co-founded CuddleXpo, the first ever convention for cuddle professionals. And in 2020 I became the Director of Development for Cuddlist.
I have taken every training and certification course offered in this field. I continue to build my skills with education in IFS, EFT, somatic experiencing, embodiment, Uzazu, and more. I have thousands of session hours and have helped hundreds of clients get their touch needs met. I mentor other professionals in the field and help them improve their practice. This work is my life’s purpose and I bring that quality to every session.
My broader ambition for the professional cuddling industry is to foster an interdisciplinary community of practitioners, to increase the standard of quality represented within the modality, and to improve accessibility to resources for practitioners.
I hope you let me share all I have to offer with you.
