Professional cuddle practitioner and touch therapist on my way to certification through Cuddle Sanctuary. I have completed the certification class in Fall/Winter of 2021.
Hi, I'm Sunny. I’m a warm, silly, soft, non-judgmental, empathetic human who loves platonic intimacy and vulnerability, deep inquiries of self and life, pleasurable touch, and having as much fun as possible while doing all of it!
I love touch, I love connection, I just really like people! Especially meeting new ones. I'm a big extrovert who ends up naturally befriending most people I meet 😊 "I am shaped like a friend." Age, gender, background, race, ability, etc don't matter, I will cuddle and connect with any lovely beings who are brave enough to be authentic and vulnerable in space and time with me.
I am a nerd for learning about the ways in which we can and do connect with ourselves, each other, and the world around us.
I absolutely love giving and receiving touch, from cuddles, to hand holding, to hugs, to massage! It is one of my main love languages. I've been told many times I have a very grounding, nurturing touch.
Sessions also don't have to involve touch if that's not something you want to do, or it's something you want to ease into very slowly or at your own pace. Your comfort, safety, and consent are my top priority.
Other activities I'd be delighted to do in session: dance together, stretch together or do yoga, share authentic vulnerability, make art together, listen to music or improv music jamming out together. Open to you bringing other ideas for activities that you find connecting!
I do believe touch and connection are core human needs that are essential to wellness and wellbeing-- right up there with sleep, food, and water. A lack of these, or an abundance, can affect our mood, sleep, and other areas. We are social creatures who’re designed to reach out and connect with each other.
Unfortunately, we as a culture are not taught ANY of the skills related to connecting with each other or ourselves, or expressing our needs. And... Relating with each other?.. Consent around touch?.. Setting and knowing your boundaries? Verbally expressing your needs and making requests? *All* require skills, and practice! It would be my joy to practice these skills together.
I believe in the healing power of consensual touch, and of having loving, safe relationships and containers, and know they can be the key to living a life that's full of joy and wonder. I am passionate about being a part of creating these sacred experiences and spaces.
I'm very friendly and knowledgeable about several alternative communities and lifestyles, including polyamory and ethical non-monogamy, swinger, kink, etc. So you can bring your full self without having to worry about educating me on basics.
I'm a LGBTQ+ friendly and knowledgeable provider, and again, no need to worry about educating me on your identity or pronouns.
Qualifications and expertise:
- I have attended dozens of consent and boundaries workshops over the past 4 years. Serving on the Consent Team for Interfusion Festival 2022.
- Completed Cuddle Sanctuary's Self Guided Course For Professional Cuddlers
- Went through CuddleSanctuary's Fall/Winter 2021 Professional Cuddler certification class. Doing continued work and hours to gain certification.
- Over 4 years of experience with meditation, grounding, and spiritual practices.
- Familiar with DBT skills, and Non-violent communication
- Have attended dozens of classes and workshops around emotions and what they are, as well as emotional processing and trauma processing tools. Have been actively using these emotional processing tools myself for over four years.
- Many years of practice and experience with empathetic, active listening, including serving as an Emotional Support Team member at several Center For New Culture retreats.
- Experience with Co-counseling and Circling.
- Mental health knowledgeable (I deeply understand the experience of depression, anxiety, and other things that can negatively impact mental wellness.)
I have been in therapy and on my own personal growth journey for 5 years now.
Related to health and expertise, I've been vegan for over 7 years and have lots of knowledge about healthy plant-based, whole foods cooking and eating, and I'm happy to have my brain picked about this topic, especially if part of your growth is also related to what you consume!
<3 If you'd like to book a session, I invite you to send a booking proposal, message me, and we can schedule an intake call. I always do an intake call with new cuddle clients before our session to better get to know you, your needs, and preferences. Also to determine if we're a good fit. It can last anywhere between 15-30m. I do this on Zoom typically but am open to other platforms.
I ask for new clients to send me a photo of their vaccine card before our session, and to fill out an intake form before our call. I will send you the intake form once you've sent a proposed booking.
I currently accept Venmo, and sometimes cash. If this doesn't work for you, we can discuss other options.
I ask for half of our session payment to be sent to lock in our intake call, and the other half to be sent before our session, to lock that into the calendar.
Have any questions? Concerns? Please don't hesitate to reach out to me.
Other pro's who want to reach out and make friends, or book a session, network, etc, my messages are open to you!
Lastly: My favorite way to cuddle is The Koala! Don’t know what that is? Let’s try it!
