About Annie Boheler
I am passionate about reclaiming holistic health, and supporting others in doing so as well, by balancing preventative and acute healthcare measures as is appropriate. I am also inspired by the current movement in health care that is bridging the past individualistic model to collective and group work processes. I am honored to serve through a client centered lens and work with each individual in a collaborative effort around their goals.
Much of my fulfillment and inspiration has come from working in collaborative groups. Having lived in a commune in my 20's, working with grassroots organizations and supporting organic start-ups, I am forever beholden to the efforts of those before me, advocating for true liberation for all life. I am inspired to share these lessons with others as we co-create a culture founded in love.
I maintain a commitment to continued education, supervision or mentorship and anti/post-colonization work. I am white, cis-gendered, bi-sexual, queer and practice open relating. I have a hidden disability of a spinal mutation; my personal traumas I survive include spinal fractures, sexual assault, & domestic violence as an adult.
I find inspiration in the beautiful ways that nature exemplifies interconnectivity and cooperation. My background includes equine therapy, permaculture, dance therapy, and bodywork. I draw much of my personal inspiration around collectivism from community living experiences & plant medicines.
The inspiration for the name “lovage somatics” comes from my appreciation of the body and earth connection. The lovage plant is a symbol of health, a hardy perennial that has many edible and medicinal properties. It is enjoyed by gardeners for its tall and nectar-rich flowers that attract beneficial pollinators. ... and it has LOVE in the name!
Who Are My Clients
My clients are those who are ready for a change. If that change is still an unknown, or perhaps intimidating, we work through that uncertainty together. I work with those who are ready to step into their most authentic self.
I work with those seeking inner-personal support around their intimate, familial and work relationships. I also work with other healthcare professionals around pleasure positive practices, psychedelic therapy support and other appropriate consultation topics.
I enjoy doing this collaborative work with individuals, couples, triads and collectives in order to support us all in our personal fulfillment and interconnectedness.

Principles within my Practice -
*Strengths focused - Mind-body connection and non-diagnostic
*Culturally responsive - our challenges and goals are interconnected with our culture, larger society and the environment.
*Sex positive - with consent and nurturance, our turn-ons and turn-offs deserve to be free to explore
*Trauma informed - our past experiences influence us and we can heal by learning to come into deep presence
We are living in a time where the impacts of the climate emergency are unavoidable. Drawing from the teachings of social and environmental permaculture design, Starhawk’s Earth Activist Trainings, and environmental biology, I can help co-create with you the internal space around how you can holistically respond to the rapidly changing external environment. Disconnect from nature is something that most of us have been taught and we can learn to reconnect. Your passion is needed in these times! We can shift eco-anxiety to responsiveness all the while avoiding burnout or overwhelm.
