Greetings! First off I just want to say kudos to you for taking action in your life. Having a good accountability partner can help you make serious progress toward your goals. (Virtual High Five)
If you can relate to at least 3 of the questions below. I am your coach.
Do you want to feel like you have your shit together?
Are you struggling with work-life balance?
You can't say "no"?
Are you feeling unfulfilled?
Does your future seem unclear?
You don't feel connected?
Do you want to make a change but you don't feel motivated?
How about in your career?
Do you struggle at work?
Do you say "yes" to tasks you don't have time for?
You keep meaning to make time for development but something always gets in the way?
Does your current career feel lacking? Are you considering something else?
I am a unique coach. I work in HR and I Life Coach. Don't let the HR title fool you. I am as REAL as they come. This is part of the reason I began coaching. I have worked with so many people in the workplace and often I find that we get to a point where it has to get very personal to get the results the person wants. I can provide coaching and professional HR insight without all the work tape that could get in the way. It's like an open book test!
The other reason I began coaching is more personal. I am a mom of 3, a wife, I work a full-time job, workout 2-3 times a week, have a part-time coaching business, and actually live a happy fulfilled life. Juggling all of these important things in my life had me regularly having panic attacks, anxiety, drinking, and eating more than I'd like. I knew I had to find a solution. I've done a lot of work, learned so much, found my calling as a coach, and now I want to share lessons and strategies to help you find your happy fulfilled life.

The changes that Ive experienced as a result of my work with Crystal run through all areas of my life - both professional and personal. The most important theme has been reconnecting to my sense of purpose - to what that means and feels like for me. I remembered and began to recognize the core qualities and values that are important to me and ARE me. When I really recognized those qualities, I started to connect the dots and saw how they showed up in multiple areas of my life. It allowed me to take the pressure off of my massage career to be the only outlet that gave my life purpose and meaning. It allowed me to step back and get a bigger view of my life. I was able to see how other aspects of myself that have nothing to do with being of service to others are equally valuable, and purposeful, and need the time and space to be expressed. The more freedom and grace I gave myself, the more I was able to come to my massage sessions feeling fresh and excited vs. burned out. I am a massage therapist - but that is only one of many ways that I use my hands to express my art and transmit care, beauty, and healing in the world. Im extremely grateful for the passion and dedication that Crystal brought to all of our sessions. She holds compassionate space for all the twists and turns and tough feelings that come up - and shes always rooting for you!Maria Pekala
I really had a great experience with Crystal, she really helped me navigate through worst time of my life. She is very organized and her approach shows how much she loves helping people. She always sent tons of notes and ready to help through any blocks you face. Very flexible but still on top of things. Really recommend her.Maddy
I came to Crystal not completely sure what I was looking for, propelled mainly by feelings of overwhelm and like I was lacking an unknown X factor in several areas of my life. I found myself going through the same motions over and over, week to week, and I knew that I needed a positive jolt to get out of that rut. Meeting with Crystal was that perfect opportunity to reevaluate my priorities and jumpstart some change. I was able to break down some of the mental barriers that I somewhat arbitrarily placed upon myselfeven some I wasnt aware of. Crystal has been my weekly voice of reason and accountability. With her guidance and tools, Ive been able to put a damper on the self-sabotage and perfectionist tendencies, to set realistic and meaningful expectations for myself, and to shift my perspective and be kind to myself. She is incredibly empathetic, encouraging, and thoughtful. Coming out of our time together I find myself more energized for friendships, feel like I have a more even-keeled routine, and am excited to be making intentional time for creativity.Katie, Financial Planner
Crystal opened my eyes to a lot during the process. One thing being how much fear I have and how much it was holding me back from being truly happy. It was also revealed that I rebel, even against myself, with the things that need to be done. I learned how to get out of my own way and be aware of the things in my own mind holding me back. Coaching will work if you let go and trust the process.Cody James
Honoring my 'no' was a big revalation for me. Not just saying 'no' to people and activities outside of my regular day to day activities. But honoring it with myself as well. Taking on to much, expecting more of myself, denying self-care and love, is detrimental to how I show up in the world. I have a desire to build my life in way that helps build community with creativity and joy. Sappy for sure... but Crystal really helped me to figure out my true desires and provided the tools to help my squirrel brain focus a little bit better. I have pretty clear path now and for once, really know I can get it done.Natalie K. Williams
Since being coached I feel like I have a better sense of what it is I'm trying to move towards and I feel more open to the opportunities around me. I no longer feel stagnant, but understand I am in transition and there are important experiences that I can be present for during this time. Blocking time for my own forward progress has been really impactful in feeling more actively engaged in my journey and stressing out about it a little less. What I loved most about being coached was being able to verbally process things holding me back and having the constant, solid, rock of Crystal holding space for the version of myself I'm working towards.Stefanie, Portland,Or
Before coaching with Crystal, I struggled with my sleep and felt unproductive with my days. Then Crystal taught me thats ok to not be on the same schedule as everyone else and to get curious and experiment with my sleep. This inevitably clarified what I wanted and lead to more productive days. The 3 most significant results I've experienced from coaching with Crystal are, not fighting my internal clock, not worrying about what everyone else is doing and having more productive days. As an entrepreneur I felt like I needed to work the same hours as everyone else but I noticed that I am the most productive when everyone is asleep and I dont fight it any more. I now wake up with less stress, have more energy to work out, and focus on my health since I now schedule my days according to how my internal clock works best. What I loved most about coaching with Crystal is her welcoming spirit. She makes it so easy to open up and really tackle the underlying issues creating the hurtles in life. She gives me exercises/experiments that are so easy but provide major breakthroughs!Laura, Life & Health Coach, Jersey City, NJ
Since being coached by Crystal, I've been able to break down some of my walls and naturally open up to others. Being able to connect more deeply with people has helped me feel like I am living a more enriched and fulfilling life! I'm actively and confidently setting boundaries with my schedule, allowing me to use my time in productive ways that feel good to me. I have really enjoyed taking a deep dive into living with intention and taking the time to do this thought-provoking internal work. After going through this process, I feel like I have a better grasp on who I am and what I want out of life, in addition to many added tools in my pocket to manage my daily needs.Stephanie Calinski, Portland, OR
Crystal has taught me to be flexible and find what works for me. This is my journey and my version of success. Three significant results I've experienced from coaching are, I'm regularly eating food that will get me on the right path with my Sibo. I have found a morning and night routine that sets me up for success each day. I'm aware of my self-sabotage cycle and taking steps to move beyond it. Ultimately taking a large pile of knowledge and put it into a plan that will work for me. What I loved most about coaching with Crystal is she has encouraged me to approach things in my life with no judgment just curiosity. Curiosity to find what works for me by learning via experimentation and moving on without shame or guilt to the next opportunity.Kelly, Product Manager, Vancouver, WA
