About Me

My name is Crystal. 


I study the mind, the psyche, and the soul. With hopes to heal mine and others. I am a student of love. A vessel of hope. I proclaim optimism, obliquity, and forgiveness.  And i am grateful to challenge your status quo. I bring balance and light, but not without change.   My name is Crystal. I am a ball of joy.


Loneliness and feelings of disconnection are at epidemic levels today, and especially here in America. Despite being able to "connect" to millions at a moment’s notice, we rarely listen to or really see one another.  I am working to bridge this disconnect, to raise awareness and assist in every way that I can.  I have recently attained my certification to become a "cuddler." (one of PA's first) I am happy and grateful to say that I have a secure location to cuddle clients safely and now all I need is you.

Starting a "touch therapy" business has been a long-time goal of mine.  I have set my intention and I will continue to work towards personal growth and attaining certifications in multiple healing arts.  But this is where my journey begins.

I am grateful for all the help and assistance that I have already received.  Samantha Hess, founder of "Cuddle Up To Me" and Crystal Hoffman, founder of "Metta: A Healing Arts Community" have inspired me beyond words and have lit a fire in me that I can no longer ignore.  

If you've ever benefited from a hug, if you've ever felt the positive effects of holding someone, and if you've ever understood the debilitating depression that can accompany loneliness, then I humbly ask you to join me in making a change. 

I am grateful that you took the time to read this.  I implore you to explore the resources below, especially the links to both Samantha's and Crystal's companies, as they have been catalysts for me personally and have a wealth of knowledge and information regarding the benefits of touch, the costs to certify, and information on why it's safe and necessary to.   Their sites are also great places to begin your journey, whatever path you may be traveling.
