I am a New York based Career Coach focusing on work-life integration issues who uses listening skills, intuitive insight, and proven coaching techniques to help clients work towards becoming more balanced in their lives to achieve true happiness. With over 20 years of coaching experience at the corporate level, I have honed my coaching skills to help my clients achieve a more balanced life by understanding the relationship between career, family, community and self.
Work-life issues can be complicated and becoming balanced is different for everyone. Together, we can explore the areas of your life and career that are not currently satisfying. The key is to maintain that balance after it is achieved. I have helped hundreds of clients become happier in their life and career. Let me help you too!

When I am not advancing my coaching practice, I enjoy outdoor activities with my wife including hiking, gardening, biking, swimming and spending time with friends and family.

In the summer/fall of 2018 I felt that I was stuck in a rut. Not just from a career perspective but also personally. I spoke with a family member who mentioned that having a coach really has helped him throughout his career so I went on a coaching search online. Noomii matched me with a few coaches and after learning more about Dan I felt he was the right coach. I've never been more correct! Dan is the perfect coach for those who are wanting to up their game and reach their full potential. Before my coaching sessions with Dan I felt like I was living my life (personally & professionally) at roughly 60% of my potential. After multiple sessions with Dan I feel like I'm now at 85-90% of my potential. For me, coaching is a way to be held accountable and also have a third party be able to see things you yourself can't see that is holding you back. Coaching is not some magic bullet by any means (nothing is) personal growth and development is like working on a farm, you can't cheat or shortcut the process to reap the harvest. Dan helped me take a step back, truly evaluate what my actual priorities are and then make sure my actions were in alignment with my priorities. Dan is a great listener and truly seeks first to understand before making suggestions. I would recommend him to anyone looking to breakthrough.

I was at a key juncture in my career when I started working with Dan. He not only helped me clarify what was important to me from a career perspective, but also helped me make progress on my personal goals. Since working with him, I have a much clearer picture of where I’m heading and how to get there. I highly recommend Sapphire Coaching services

Dan has been a tremendous help through my transition of leaving my previous job and starting a company. He has guided me in ways to promote my company, as well as feedback on website appearances. Dan has given me a different perspective on how to reach my goals, dealing with a new partnership, and creating a healthy work life balance.

Sapphire Coaching helped me make a habit of realistic goal setting. I have gained a greater sense of direction in my career and entrepreneurial pursuits.
Elaine, project Manager, Poughkeepsie, NY
Sapphire Coaching understands that there is only so many hours in the day to get all of "life" done. Dan's respect of my time is extremely helpful in maximizing the value of our sessions (punctual, ability to shift time of sessions quickly, etc). As I exit a coaching session, new ways of working on and thinking of what true balance is across all of life's activities has been key for me. Each session has given me new ideas to put into action on gaining back my life's priorities!

Working in conjunction with Sapphire coaching I was able to take an idea and move it towards a formulated plan. Dan, was instrumental in understanding key items, obstacles and provide ways to work through them. Working now on a solid plan to move forward.

Dan's approach is conversational, thoughtful and without pressure. Dan helped me see several different sides of an issue that I otherwise would not have thought to consider. He asks non-judgemental questions that immediately puts the client at ease and creates an environment that you can really discuss your issues.
