About Sunshine

Think of me as your Emotional Support Human!

Soft pillows, fuzzy blankies, soothing music, relaxing scents, and the comforting warmth of another caring person — these are some things that you can expect from your cuddle session with me.

Please request a session through Cuddlist and then fill out my intake form here so that I can get a better idea of what you’re looking for in a cuddle session and determine if we are a good fit for each other.

Cuddling is something that I find profoundly therapeutic, both giving and receiving. Without human contact, I 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 them to give me back rubs (something I teach in my other professional life!)  if they find that therapeutic.

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 care for people who crave platonic hugs, comfort, and love. My specialty is creating safe, peaceful, relaxing places for people to be.

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.  Imagine if we all got the affection and love we needed in our day-to-day lives. What a fulfilling life we would have!

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 what we’re doing. 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

People seek out therapeutic 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.

So that we can determine if we are a good fit for each other, I will request a phone call after you fill out my intake form (see above link). Then we can decide on a session date and time. Payment will be due at the beginning of every session unless otherwise stated.

When you arrive for your session, I will orientate you to the space and we will discuss how you would like to begin your cuddle session. It is helpful to have a few ideas in mind, so think about it before your session. We will have a 5-minute check-in and check-out process.

My sessions lengths have ranged from 1-4 hours. If you would like to add more time to your session, please notify me halfway through at the latest. I might have to take a few minutes out to adjust my schedule to allow for this added time, so patience is appreciated. Extra time is billed at the same hourly rate.

My cuddle space is located in my studio.  Occasionally, I will take clients at my home, but this will be on a case-by-case basis.

There are no pets on the premises.

I do not offer out-call services at this time.
I am located 3 miles south of I-88 off of the Rt. 31 exit in the 60506 zip code.

Clients are welcome to park in the parking garage across the street, or there is street parking out front.

To honor our time, I ask for a 24 hours’ cancellation notice. Because I am 100% self-employed through my jobs, I cannot make up my income for last-minute cancellations or no-shows. In order to continue to do this sacred work, I ask that clients give me 24 hours’ notice for cancellations. If you cannot keep your appointment and have to cancel in less than 24 hours, all future sessions must be paid in advance and you might be asked to pay for your session anyway.

Please request a session through Cuddlist first for availability, and then fill out the required intake form here.
