About Sunshine


I am fully vaccinated and boosted.  Because I am immuno-compromised, I require my clients to also be fully vaccinated unless we have had a conversation about extenuating circumstances.  Both client and practitioner must wash their hands at the beginning of each session.  Masks are optional if you have been vaccinated, but required if you have not, and temperature check are part of the procedure now.  Rapid tests are on-hand and one can be provided upon request.  Virtual sessions are also available.


Think of me as your Emotional Support Human!

Soft pillows, fuzzy blankies, soothing music, relaxing scents, and the comforting warmth of a nurturing person — these are some things that you can expect from your cuddle session with me.  Imagine if we all got the affection and connection we needed in our day-to-day lives.  How fulfilling life would be!

The world can be a very challenging place, and it is a relief to know that a sanctuary lies just within arms’ reach.  My mission is World Peace, and I believe that I’m doing my part by providing cuddles and a listening ear for people who crave platonic hugs, comfort, and love.  My specialty is creating emotionally safe, warm, peaceful, relaxing places for people to unwind.

Clients seek out professional cuddling for a variety of reasons.  Many clients simply desire a connection with another human where there are no expectations or obligations outside of the cuddle session.  Clients have noticed reduction in their anxiety, depression, sleeplessness, and reactionary responses to stress.  Clients report feeling more centered, balanced, relaxed, and calm yet energized after a cuddle session.

Cuddling is something that I find profoundly therapeutic, both giving and receiving.  Without human contact, we can feel “dehydrated.”  I believe that being held and comforted is an innate, human need that doesn’t just end in childhood when cuddling is more socially acceptable.  For those who love to nurture others, I’m happy to provide an opportunity for that as well.  Whether it be emotional space-holding or literal, physical holding, it is my intention to provide a nurturing atmosphere for everyone who seeks out my care.

The only agreement outside of what’s covered in the Code of Conduct is that we must agree to not endure, tolerate, or put up with any physical contact that is not whole-heartedly wanted.  That way, we never have to wonder if the other person is consenting to that affection.  Both of us are allowed to change our minds at any time, we only have to speak up and say so.

To see more of what this looks like, please read the Code of Conduct.

Session information from Sunshine


When you first arrive for your session, I will orientate you to the space and we will go over the rules of consent within our cuddle session.  It is helpful to have a few ideas in mind for how you would like to begin your cuddle session, so think about it beforehand.  Clients are welcome to bring their own music, blankets, pillows, tea or whatever will bring them added comfort.  We will have a 10-minute “returning to your body” process at the end that will be included in your session length.  Clients tend to be profoundly relaxed and somewhat disoriented following a cuddle session.  We will talk about seratonin and oxitocin levels being elevated and possible emotional contractions later.  We will discuss ways that you can prolong this feeling of euphoria and continue your self-care over the next few days following your session.

The length of sessions range from 1-4 hours.  Clients often choose to nap; however, I will remain awake in order to hold space for you.  If you would like to add more time to your session, please notify me at least halfway through your session to ensure that I don’t have another client on their way.  I might have to take a few minutes out to adjust my schedule to allow for the added time, so I appreciate your patience.  Extra time is billed at the same hourly rate, so an extra half hour will be $45.

My cuddle space is located in Aurora, IL.

There are no pets on the premises.



Payment will be due at the end of every session.  There will be a little stand with QR codes for Venmo, PayPal, or Zelle.  I accept debit or credit through Square.



Please review all services, rates, and policies prior to requesting an appointment at SunshineSnuggles.com.

1. Fill out the Cuddlist Request Form here through the request button to the left on this page.

2. Next, fill out my personal intake form so that I can get a better idea of what it is that you’re looking for to ensure that we are a compatible fit:

3. Text me at (630) 465-5734 with:

  • Your full name
  • A few windows of availability
  • The length of time you would like
  • A time when you’ll be available for an introductory phone call
  • Your email address to fill out my required intake form (if you have not already)
  • The name of the person who referred you / where we met in-person / the Cuddlist who you have worked with in the past*

*If you are brand-new to professional cuddling, I might refer you to another Certified Cuddlist before our first session together.

I prefer text messages because it helps me to have all of my clients’ info written down in one place.  Clients will also get quicker responses while I’m in between sessions.  This process helps to organize my schedule and be more efficient with my time and yours.

I do not offer out-call services at this time.

I do not offer massage sessions on the same days as cuddle sessions; however, cuddle clients are welcome to request to book a massage on another day.  There is a separate, medical intake form, but the process is the same as above to book an appointment via text.  Please read all my rates, services, and policies at SunshineMassageBodywork.com.  Please respect my boundaries and do not solicit me for services unbecoming of my sacred professions.

To honor our time together, I ask for a 24 hours’ cancellation notice.  I am 100% self-employed through all of my jobs, and I cannot make back reserved time for last-minute cancellations or no-shows.  If a client must cancel with less than 24 hours’ notice, and would like to reschedule with me, I will ask them to pay for both that cancelled session as well as to prepay for the next one.  Subsequent sessions will then be determined on a case-by-case basis.  Clients must have two sessions with no issues before they are eligible for my Monthly Cuddle Membership.
