While researching coaching professionals based out of the Greater Sacramento and East Bay areas, I connected with Dan Chrystal. Honestly, I could not be more pleased. As a fairly successful, but unfulfilled forty-something year old, I was originally seeking some career guidance. Within our first meeting however, it became apparent that the work I needed to focus on first was much more personal in nature. Through deep, honest and open discussions as well as guided personal discovery assignments, Dan was able to expediently dig into some core issues that had been subconsciously shaping my life, choices and ultimately my destiny. Within a few sessions, I was able to lay down some decades-long heavy burdens, clear up some limiting beliefs and settle some internal turmoil which previously, no advisor, coach, therapist or friend had been able to understand or help resolve.
Dan has a simple, honest, approachable demeanor, which was important to me. At this point in my life, the thought of endless personal discovery over multiple months of verbal rehashing was simply not an option. But I also knew that I needed help and was ready to fully participate in making that process happen. With his holistic mindset and a focus on getting down to business, I highly recommend Dan Chrystal as a personal / professional coach for anyone who is ready to do the personal work to make change happen. I look forward to my continued work with Dan as I move into the next phase of aligning my professional life with my personal values and talents.
