human connection coaching can involve intimacy, boundaries, acceptance and self worth, communication, relationships and sexuality.

Do you seek connection? 

Do you seek better connection? 

My name is Michelle and I’m a human connection coach based just north of Baltimore, Maryland.  I’ve been working in human connection since 2015.  I’m humbled by the growth I’ve witnessed in my clients when they get a chance to experience security, trust, acceptance and self-empowerment.  

While most of my work takes place in my Cockeysville office, I will travel locally and nationally for intensive multi-day sessions.  I work in the full spectrum of human connection from non-sexual to sexual intimacy.  If you are on the non-sexual side of the spectrum, human connection coaching could be for you!  

Human Connection Sessions start with a simple question, “How would you like to connect?” and we go from there.   You are in control of the session and I meet you where you are.  These are fully clothed non-sexual sessions.  Each client’s need is different and as such, pricing can vary.  Please contact me for more information.

Human Connection Coaching can be great if you are:

    • having a difficult time separating touch from sex.  We can work on that!  
    • coming from a background that involves trauma of some kind and you would like to establish a feeling of safety with touch.
    • struggling with setting boundaries in your life.
    • isolated and desiring connection.
    • looking to build relational skills.
    • wanting to practice saying no.
    • needing to feel accepted for exactly who you are.
    • struggling to know what it is you want in life.
    • experiencing “skin hunger” and looking for safe, consensual, nurturing.

I’m also a surrogate partner (the sexual side of my spectrum of coaching) and work in conjunction with therapists and their clients to overcoming sexual obstacles.  To learn more, visit MichelleReneeSurrogate.com.  If you aren’t sure where you fall, let’s talk.  

Please note that I am not a sex therapist.  I am a geek about sex and relationships, a trained surrogate partner, and a Cuddlist certified practitioner.  I look forward to working with you!  First step?  Fill out the contact form below.

Warm hugs,

Testimonials

“I felt great afterward, and still am feeling great right now! ... You’re really good! ... I like how you start your sessions with a set of questions, where I had to answer yes or no to all of them, and pay attention to my body’s reactions as I answered each question... What I wish was different? Well, nothing really, but maybe that the time would not have gone by so quickly since I was enjoying it so much!”

“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'm] calmer, easier to be around people. The ability to work through the discomfort of emotional connection with you has translated to other people in the world. You know how ...  when a person is attacked by a dog and they develop the fear against all dogs? In a way, this is the opposite. By having a positive emotionally-intimate experience with you, I developed a positive attitude to interactions with others. [I like your] willingness to be creative, try different things.  [Your] understanding of psychology makes it easier to communicate.  [Also, I have] less chronic muscle tension, focus better [and have] more energy."

“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 probably hear this a lot, but I felt that I got more out of this than a regular therapy session with a social worker or psychologist. Too bad cuddling isn’t covered by health insurance, but it should! Also thanks for letting me be weird ;-)"
