About Annie

I am passionate about intimacy because it is a core piece of wider cultural interactions. With greater self awareness of our individual contributions, we can co-create a new, love-based culture that is life-affirming, ecologically regenerative and deliciously sexy.

When working with Annie the objective perspective that she offers allows me to re-frame my thoughts in a way that provides me with a more holistic approach to my life, and my spirit. I trust Annie, and I know that her practice contributes positivity to the lives of those that she works with.  ~K.D.

Annie has this way of space holding and communicating that eases my nervous system. There is a level of deep unconditional presence that I feel has provided a safe relating container for me to experience a more authentic self, more aware of my core desires, and my power to create relationships structures that feels good. -E.T.

The name “lovage” is from “love-ache”, ache being a medieval name for parsley…- https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Lovage&oldid=853301485 

Annie creates a safe, welcoming and fun space to explore these themes and what they represent for the individual and culture as a whole ~JM
