Frequently Asked Questions

Your Questions, Answered

  • What exaclty is cuddle therapy and what are the benefits?
    Cuddling is consensual, affectionate non-sexual touch. When we cuddle, oxytocin is produced making us feel more relaxed and socially connected. Individuals who have more healthy touch in their lives also portray lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol. This has loads of benefits to our overall wellbeing including boosting our immune system, reducng stress, and has even helped elderly patients with dementia maintain their levels of intellectual and emotional functioning and decrease levels of aggression and stress. ​ Oxytocin counteracts our stress, fear, and threat responses, leading to an increase in positive emotions and feelings of calmness and connection to others. The neuropeptide has even been found to protect tissues from being damaged. So let's cuddle up! Doing so may help protect you from psychological disorders, illness, and cognitive declines as you age.
  • So how is professional cuddling different than regular cuddling?
    In many ways it is the same. My services are professional because not everyone has a regular person to snuggle up to. I also uphold my limits and boundaries to help clients develop skills to have healthy relationships outside of the cuddle session by providing a safe space and clear communication. We will practice boundaries and explore consent in an intimate setting without any sexual contact or having things get "weird."
  • What services do you provide?
    I offer therapeutic, completely platonic, touch therapy and cuddle sessions. A professional cuddle session is great for helping with those suffering loneliness, symptoms of depression, PTSD, neurodegenerative diseases, and anxiety. It's completly ok to just want to spend time with me too in a fun yet platonic setting.
  • What can I expect during our session?
    A session with me is intimate yet platonic. We can cuddle up and watch a movie, have a deep meaningful conversation, or simply enjoy the quiet. I love listening about what is going on in your life, but if you choose not to share, that's ok too! The session will begin with us going over boundaries and consent to make sure we're on the same page, followed by some conversation for us to get comfortable with each other. From there it's the session itself. It's your session, so I want you to get the most out of it. I am a flexible platonic cuddler, so I can be the big spoon or little spoon. Not sure of what you would like? That's ok, I can lead the session or we can explore some things that you might like to try.
  • Where would we cuddle?
    I am currently outcall only. I can meet you at your home, a hotel, or even a public place. Want to sit in the park and hold hands while we drink coffee? We can do that! Want to catch a movie? We can do that too. If you would prefer me to book the hotel, I can. The cost will be added on to the session price, and must be paid up front before the session will be confirmed.
  • What do I wear? What will you wear?
    I will be wearing a tank top and shorts, and I ask that you do the same as the minimum. Be comfy! T-shirts, shorts, sweatpants, are all good options. At no time will it be ok to be in your underwear (or less), and boxer shorts do not count as shorts.
  • How do I schedule a session?
    The first step is to contact me via my contact form on my booking page. I will then link you to the client/practitioner agreement form. This is absolutely required to be filled out before I will agree to meet with you. Next we will set a time for coffee (30 mins) and a chat in person, or a Zoom call (20 mins) to make sure we are a good fit. This gives us the opportunity to get to know each other better and for me to answer any questions you might have. Once we determine we're a good match, we will then schedule the session. A 40% deposit is required plus 100% of any other extra costs such as hotel or travel fees.
  • I'm still not sure this is for me...
    That's ok! This is why we will meet online via Zoom or in person. This gives us the chance to get to know each other better and for you to ask any questions you might have about our session. It is absolutely ok to not be sure about this or feel indecisive.
  • Can I see you today?
    I can sometimes honor same day requests. It just depends on my schedule. I do ask that you give me at least 4 hours notice before you would like to see me so that I can get ready. Same day appointments are still subject to screening and do not get around the mandatory Zoom call meet and greet.
  • What form of payment do you accept?
    I accept cash, Venmo, CashApp, and Paypal currently. All new clients are required to pay electronically for their first session. A deposit of 40% is required within 2 hours of booking, and payment in full must be completed before the session. Any cancellations within 24 hours of the appointment are not entitled to a refund of the deposit as it is not likely I will get another appointment for that time slot. I set aside time for each indivicual client. Any cancellations within 12 hours are subject to the cost of the full session.
  • What type of clients do you see?
    I work with everyone! Race, ethnicity, spiritual beliefs, age (18+), and gender do not go into my decision on who I will cuddle with. I do not discriminate with my cuddles.
  • What if I get aroused?
    That's ok too! This is something that is completely natural given that cuddling is a very intimate activity. What's NOT ok is acting on it. I won't make it akward, I promise. However... should you cross any boundaries that we set forth in our talk at the beginning of the session, I will give you 2 warnings. If that boundary (or any) is crossed a third time, I will promptly end the session and there will be no refund for any time remaining.
  • I'm married... Is that ok?
    Yes. Every client that sees me is guaranteed confidentiality. While I encourage consent between partners, I understand that sometimes there is not a safe place for my client to go to. I will be that safe place. I understand fully what it is like to be in a situation where you are married but also incredibly lonely. I will not share any information about my clients outside of the session without their expressed permission. I provide a holistic health service that is completely ethical and legal between consenting individuals regardless of marital status.
  • What if I run into you in public after our sesion?
    If you greet me, I will happily greet you back. Otherwise I will not engage in any conversation unless you approach me first. I will simply pretend as if I do not know you. This is in line with my confidentiality promise to you.
  • What if I would like to extend our session?
    Generally this is ok. I set my appointments up usually so I have a buffer to accomodate for this. Occasionally however, my schedule in either my personal life or my professional one will not allow for it. We can discuss this before or during our session.
