In Person (Local)


The Best Version of Me is for those who struggle with their loyalty to others vs. their obligation to themselves. It is the aftermath of being what everyone else wanted or needed me to be. It is about learning that self-care, self-acceptance and self-love is your responsibility to yourself. When it is all said and done, when the curtain closes and the fog clears, it will be just you.  Doing what is best for you without apology or permission is not selfish, it is necessary.
