About J.V.H Empower

Psychological safety is a pillar in any JVH Empower training, gathering or project. Through our heart-centered and relational leadership practices, we cultivate trusting collaborative partnerships,  transformational professional development,  and broker the resources needed to manifest empowered communities where all are seen, heard and belong.

Through our healing-centered facilitation practices, we support and create an environment that allows participants to feel safe and supported to expand partnerships, share resources, and promote continuous quality improvement.


JVH strongly believes that by empowering one person, you can empower many.  J.V.H Empower cultivates communities of empowerment by creating spaces that allow each individual to reflect, learn, and unite with others through joy, vitality, and hope.

We work with individuals and agencies who work in communities with high levels of poverty, violence, structural racism, and trauma. As a result, these communities are often made to feel disempowered in their ability to reach a self-actualized life.

We empower co-creators through the JVH Empower Philosophy:

  • Empowerment of Oneself: We provide co-creators with the opportunity to see themselves as proactive individuals engaged in a continuous re-creation of their leadership philosophy and support to the community they serve. 

  • Safe and Supportive Spaces: We create safe and supportive spaces that allow each individual to reflect, learn, and unite with others through joy, vitality, and hope to cultivate communities of empowerment.

  • Professional Learning Communities: We cultivate spaces that inspire partnerships between people, organizations, and institutions working to improve the life outcomes of our collective communities. 

  • Empowering Many:  We inspire individuals to embody a mental model that uses a continuous process of action, reflection, and innovation to uplift and empower those committed to achieving self-actualization for themselves and others.
