Certified Cuddlist Practitioner
Why do we need it?
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.

Certified Cuddlist Practitioner
To Request a Session visit:
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!
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.
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.

“I had a cuddle session with Robin recently. It was lovely. I felt a natural high afterwards; raised my oxytocin level for sure. Robin is super warm and friendly, and has great energy that put me at ease right away. If you need a good cuddle or are craving touch, I highly recommend Robin.
I felt so relaxed during our session. It was so nice to not have to worry about things going anywhere, we could just enjoy platonic cuddling. I felt a lift in my mood for several days after as well.
You have a natural ability at this.
Robin is the ultimate cuddler. I had a very healing experience.
My first Cuddle Party ever was just so wonderful. I felt comfortable, safe, and naturally snuggled in with a warm, genuine group of fellow cuddlers. I would describe this experience as one of kindness, connection, and healing. I’m so glad I participated and will definitely cuddle again!
You will be on cloud nine; you will not regret it.
