What Others Are Saying

Crystal has been a godsend to me!

As I tried to plan and pack the next 3 or 4 years of homeschooling, she asked the questions that helped me figure out my priorities and move forward in faith in God’s provision.

She helped me create a life that is fulfilling and life-giving

If you are really having trouble finding direction in your life (all the different roles you play), Crystal is the life coach you need. She has a unique way of listening to your struggles and desires and helping you see what’s really important to you. With powerful and thought-provoking questions, she helps you to create a life that is fulfilling and life-giving instead of something that drags you down. I understand why certain things are important to me (my values) and have a plan on how not to compromise my family and other priorities. As a single, homeschooling mama who also runs an online business, I finally feel like I can pursue my passions and provide for my family without losing myself in the process. Thanks, Crystal!

After graduating with my Master of Accountancy degree, I began my career as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in the corporate offices of an international manufacturing company. After several years, I knew corporate life wasn’t for me. I was frustrated that I had to work according to someone else’s schedule.

I wanted more freedom to spend time with my husband and our Airdale Terrier. So I switched gears completely and became the business administrator for our church. I had more flexibility with my schedule and became friends with the other church staff. It was a much better fit with my values and goals.

When our first daughter was born, I “retired” and became a stay-at-home mom. As much as I loved being a mom and watching my child grow and mature, I felt like I had lost a piece of myself. It took eighteen months to grieve the loss of my identity and embrace my new role.

Several moves (in two different states) and another daughter later, we began our homeschool journey. I discovered that a boxed curriculum didn’t work for us. I didn’t like the structure and wanted more flexibility. (Notice a trend here?!) We enjoyed traveling and had a dream of taking our daughters to all fifty states before they graduated high school. I knew that we needed a homeschool curriculum that would provide the flexibility to travel and not always feel “behind.” Through some trial and error, we found our groove.

In 2012, I started the Triumphant Learning blog to share the resources we were using with my friends. That blog morphed into a podcast, speaking engagements, and online courses. Triumphant Learning is now a go-to source for new homeschool parents.

After supporting homeschool families for ten years, I took my first life coaching certification course in July 2021 and was hooked. Coaching is all about helping others find their own path and walk that path with confidence. There is no one right solution for everyone; the journey is as unique as the individual. Coaching was a perfect fit with my personal philosophy about life.

While pursuing my dreams and goals through different stages of my life, I learned that living out your dreams can simultaneously be scary and rewarding, but that when you walk in obedience, you only need to know the next step to take. My goal is to partner with you to help you discern your next right step. I look forward to helping you flourish and thrive!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is coaching?

Coaching is a professional relationship focused on helping you become the person you want to be so you can flourish and thrive. We will explore your vision and dreams of where you want to be, identify where you are right now, and work to remove obstacles and roadblocks preventing you from achieving your goals and dreams.

Some of the benefits my clients enjoy are:

  • Living a more balanced life.
  • Developing awareness of their values, talents, and strengths.
  • Living in alignment with their values.

What will a coaching session look like?

We’ll start by taking a deep breath so we can focus our thoughts and emotions on the coaching session.

Then, I’ll ask questions to guide your thoughts as you think through and process what you want to talk about during our session. I may point out observations I notice or offer to help you brainstorm possible options.

We’ll close our session by identifying an action step to help you move forward in achieving your goal. Action steps could be time spent in reflection, homework exercises to explore an issue further, or specific action steps related to your goal.

Throughout the entire process, you are in charge. You get to choose what action steps you take. My role is simply to facilitate your growth process.

What if I’m not sure coaching is for me?

Great question! I recommend you start with a free Inquiry Call. It’s 30 minutes for us to become familiar with each other and allows you to ask any questions about the coaching process.

What can I expect on an Inquiry Call?

We will meet online via telephone or Zoom. Inquiry Calls last 30 minutes.

We will spend most of our time hearing about your situation and goals. I’ll be listening to clarify what you say so that I will know how best to support you.

I’ll also share specifics of how the coaching relationship works. At the conclusion of our call, I will offer some possible next steps and answer any questions you have.

Where do we meet for coaching calls?

Coaching calls are held via telephone or Zoom. You’ll receive instructions on how to connect once your payment is completed.

Unfortunately, I am not able to offer in-person coaching at this time.

What are your qualifications?

I am a Certified Professional Coach through the Life Breakthrough Academy. I am currently pursuing International Coaching Federation (ICF) Associate Certified Coach (ACC) certification through the Professional Christian Coaching Institute (PCCI).

The International Coaching Federation (ICF) is the leading global organization for coaches and coaching. ICF is dedicated to advancing the coaching profession by setting high standards, providing independent certification, and building a worldwide network of trained coaching professionals.

How long will we work together?

Typically, I begin working with clients over a minimum of three sessions. If coaching proves a good fit for you, we can continue to work together for as long as the coaching relationship is beneficial. You can purchase a package of coaching sessions that best meets your needs, which we can discuss at the end of our three sessions.

All appointments must be booked within six months of the purchase date. Any remaining appointments not scheduled by six months from purchase will expire.

What is your cancellation/refund policy?

My time is valuable, as is yours. Therefore, I do not offer refunds on coaching sessions.

Coaching sessions can be canceled or rescheduled up to 24 hours prior to our scheduled meeting. Sessions canceled within 24 hours of our call are subject to forfeiting your session fee.

If you are late for a session, you will lose that portion of the session time. If you are more than 10 minutes late to a session, the session will be canceled without a refund.

What if I can’t find a time for us to meet?

Coordinating schedules can be a challenge. If you cannot find a time for us to meet, you can keep checking back or sign up for my coaching waiting list. When I have an opening in my coaching schedule, I’ll first email those on the waiting list. In the meantime, you will receive my encouraging and practical weekly emails. Enter your email below to be added to the waiting list.
