I can help your organization or school elevate your collective understanding of the young people you work with and improve your professional practices through workshop facilitation, ongoing teaching, or consulting. I have experience with youth development, educational, community, and arts organizations working with adolescents and emerging adults. 

The frame for this work is consistent with my approach to therapy. I welcome participants into non-hierarchical practices in which all of us – including myself – bring our individual expertise to elevate the collective wisdom. I create learning environments in which there is active engagement with the material, people are comfortable talking, there is plenty of time for discussion, and where taking care of ourselves – mentally, physically, and emotionally – is a priority.

 Please reach out to have a conversation about your organization’s needs and how I might be able to support you.  


"Jovanina is an amazing practitioner who cares deeply about people and is a passionate DEI [Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion] advocate, facilitator, and coach. I had the opportunity to witness her while building a successful DEI curriculum and a safe educational environment from scratch at an institution where it did not exist. Bringing the voices of students, parents, staff, and administrators to the table created amazing learning experiences and was a force for understanding and change."
