I am Sundria! I am a breath of fresh air! I am positive energy overflowing with the love of God!
My interest in this profession was sparked in 2016 when I viewed a video posted on social media. Two years prior, in 2014, I became a widow and experienced, in that same year, the deaths of my mother, stepfather, and family pet. I realized those closest to me, who I relied on for support and encouragement, were gone. Though at times I was around others socially, I felt alone and isolated. From my loss was birthed the desire for missing human intimacy. A desire I would never have known if it hadn't been for so many transitions of my loved ones within such a short timeframe. I was positioned by God to recognize disconnect in others and given a powerful purpose to restore healthy intimate human connection in the lives of others. This doesn't mean that something has to be missing for YOU to see a Professional Cuddlist. It's perfectly fine for you to seek healthy touch as a form of self care because you value your health and well being. My strength as a Cuddlist comes from the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. My blessing as a retired therapist is that I have the learning, applied practice, and scientific knowledge to experience present moments, actively listen, sit in silence, recognize deficiencies, honor confidentiality, and value healthy human exchange. What's awesome about being a Cuddlist is that my role is not to fix...but just to BE. My goal is to share a moment in life with another that is meaningful to them leaving them being sincerely accepted, feeling connected, and being validated by safe, healthy, consensual, non-sexual, human touch.
Personally, I am a seminary student and active volunteer within my residential and spiritual communities.
Professionally, I am a Professional Cuddlist and an Associate Trainer of Cuddlist! I am an Essential Oil Educator, Event Facilitator, Gospel Singer/Songwriter, Encouragement Speaker, Private Property Investor, Non-Profit Board Member, and Retired Christ-Centered Psychotherapist.

A trained and skilled professional who holds a confidential safe space for their consenting adult client to experience healthy non-sexual human touch.
Just about anyone! I am open and non-discriminative so my clients identify as he, she, and they. My clients are a rainbow of hues and come from many walks of life. My clients are survivors of physical violations or those who live with disabilities seen and unseen. My clients are those outside of or within their own romantic relationships. My clients range from C.E.O.’s, Pastors, professional athletes, and law enforcement officials to ex-military, widowed, homemakers, and college students. My clients look like you! My client is YOU!
I personally screen my emails, receive calls, handle scheduling & follow-ups, and maintain my own records. From the moment you contact me until you exit my presence only you and I are aware of our interactions. You have the right to confidentiality! Only those YOU share your experience with will know of our sessions.
Each session involves a greeting, orientation to space, review of conduct code to establish boundaries, and transition into a safe non-sexual human touch experience tailored specifically for you in the present moment. Each session ends with a ten minute acknowledgement prior to session closure. Know that comfortability is important and won't be overlooked. If at any time you, the client, or I, the Cuddlist, is uncomfortable for any reason we may stop the session.
There are no two sessions alike. I have had clients range from being satisfied with little to no touch enjoying the quiet sharing of presence in the moment to clients engaged in full embrace where they simply fell into deep sleep being totally relaxed. I encourage YOU to decide in the moment how the session will go and as long as we both consent to safe non-sexual touch experiences...it's all good!
Be aware that there is a euphoric feeling that can linger after a session ends. The body is on what is considered a "natural high" due to the nurturing you have received and a visceral sense of connection you will experience from cuddling. Your body is in an altered state with your blood chemistry producing a powerful hormone called oxytocin which acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain. In our follow-up call I will check in with you to ensure you are not experiencing an "intimacy hangover." This should not be alarming but usually occurs when a client has an emotional come down from an oxytocin high.
There are two types of sessions each are paid in full at the time the session is scheduled:
1. In Calls. You come to a private address I provide once the session is scheduled. You are asked to be on time and free of substances and strong smells. The cuddle environment is a smoke free and pet free zone. There is a private changing area where You can place on cuddle attire once you arrive.
2. Out Calls. I travel to a predetermined location to meet You. There are additional travel expenses associated with this type of session which we confirm prior to scheduling the session.
Proper professional cuddling attire are pajamas or light work out clothing (e.i. soft cotton jersey like material or yoga attire). Professional cuddling attire must be a minimum of a tank top and long shorts. Undergarments alone cannot be worn in lieu of clothing items (i.e. underwear are not shorts and a sports bra is not a tank top). Think COMFY not sexy. Sensual lingerie is not proper professional cuddling attire.
At no time is touching under clothing or saliva exchange permitted.
Initial 60 minute session
Extended 60 minute session beyond the initial session or return 60 minute sessions (up to 4 consecutive hours)
Minimum 10 paid hours w/2 free bonus hours, usually 7pm-7am (required provision of two meals and all paid accommodations in a minimum 4 Star Hotel). There are additional travel expenses associated with this type of session which we confirm prior to scheduling the session.
These fees are only associated with my pre-paid travel expenses and vary depending upon location and time spent traveling to and from a session
Mode based (i.e. auto mileage, plane ticket, driver service, etc.)
Time spent en route to and from session
A Cuddle Party is simply a gathering anyone can attend alone or with someone to enjoy healthy non-sexual touch. There will be snacks, music, and socializing in a substance free and alcohol free haven. Casual attire is best and appropriate PJ's are welcomed. Think COMFY NOT SEXY. Challenge yourself to do something different!!! Boundary exercises practiced prior to touch experiences with yes, no, negotiating, and mind changing modeled. Under 18 not permitted. Location shared after registering.
I love hearing from YOU (my clients & perspective clients).
