Why Did I Become a Professional Cuddler with Cuddlist?


“Hi Michelle, 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.”

“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!”

“You made me feel very comfortable very fast and I appreciate that.”

“Very professional, kind, amazingly soft and sweet.”

“Really loved the forward-thinking, Earth friendly, verdantly idyllic setting. So peaceful, tranquil, and calming. I was made to feel right at home. So welcoming. A joy. Wonderful to talk to and get to know better. Very open and accepting. Glad to have made the 2-hour drive to western Michigan for such a heart-warming experience. Well worthwhile. Bodes well for the future.”

“Michelle, the session went above and beyond what I thought it would be, as nervous as I was when I arrived, you made me feel so relaxed very quickly. Not only would I recommend you to friends, I already have. It was an amazing and wonderful experience.”

A Little About Me…

(Pronouns: She/Her)

Touch has given me a way to connect on a deeper level to others in a platonic way. Before this discovery, it felt as though something was always lacking in my life.

When I learned about cuddling as a profession, it made perfect sense for me.  I became certified through Cuddlist.com in December, 2015.  I am someone you will find comforting and very accepting. I’m told I put people at ease rather quickly. This translates into a warm, nurturing cuddle environment. I want to guide you to accept touch, value touch, and ask for what you want and need.

I believe in safe, consensual touch so much that I also facilitate Cuddle Parties, a communication workshop that gives cuddle lovers the opportunity to practice advocating for their touch needs in a safe environment.

As a person who has managed through major hurdles in my life like being the parent of a child with a chronic illness, divorce, loss of a parent and financial ruin, I know what it’s like to feel tired and lost. It’s hard to know who to be vulnerable with. I’m a safe place and I am a compassionate listener.
