As Brene’ Brown has stated, “Daring greatly means the courage to be vulnerable, it means to show up and be seen, to ask for what you need, to talk about how you’re feeling, to have the hard conversation.” Megan embodies this philosophy and helps her clients find the strength to “dare greatly” together.
