Coaching FAQ & Testimonials

Crystal has been an answer to prayer in that she was exactly what I needed to get to the next step in my recovery. Her understanding but professional manner helped me to trust and open up while also forcing me to confront what was holding me back. She is real, heartfelt and always has the right thing to say. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for help on the road to recovery.

I came to Crystal when pornography had a stronghold in my life. She was the perfect person to talk with about my struggles as I didn’t feel judged sharing them. She showed an enormous amount of compassion, which I desperately needed as the guilt and shame became overwhelming. With her help and coaching, I mustered the strength I didn’t know I had to overcome the addiction. Thanks to Crystal, I got my life back under control and am even enjoying the fruits of a healthy dating relationship.

FAQ

Is Coaching Right for Me?

You can complete my pre-coaching assessment to see if coaching is right for you. Coaching and pastoral counseling are not a replacement for professional licensed therapy nor am I licensed counselor.

Who Do I Coach?

I mainly coach women however I do coach ministry leaders, counselors, etc. as well as married couples. See my coaching and pastoral care services for more information about what I offer.

What is Expected of Me?

As a coach, I am your biggest fan and am only here to help you achieve your goals. However, you only get as much out of coaching as you put into it. So all that is really expected of you is your commitment and follow-through. Being an active participant in the process is all I can ask of you.

How Much Does All of This Cost? 

For one-on-one coaching or pastoral care, my rate per session is $60 for 45 minutes or $75 for 1 hour. Clients who book 3 or more sessions upfront receive a 15% discount. I also offer 3 levels of one-on-one recovery programs based on the needs of the female client facing sexual/porn/love addiction. These programs range from $600-$1200 and include 10, 12, or 21 weeks of care. Group recovery coaching, when offered, is 33% less than the cost of one-on-one coaching. Payment plans are available for recovery programs. I provide discounts to clients in active ministry (i.e. church staff, missionaries, pastor wives, etc.) so be sure to tell me! On a budget? I will do my best work with you so don’t hesitate to reach out to me.

What Are My Credentials, You Ask?

I also hold certifications in Professional Life Coaching, Leadership Life Coaching, Treating Sexual Addictions, Caring for People God’s Way, and Extraordinary Women through Light University, and am a member in good standing with the American Association of Christian Counselors. In addition to my certifications, I hold a Bachelors of Science Degree in Psychology (emphasis in addiction and recovery) from Liberty University and I will complete my Master of Arts in Life Coaching in May 2019.

I have experienced freedom from my own 8-year pornography and sexual addiction and have been helping women walk through addiction recovery for over 10 years. I have also known crippling depression, anxiety, and food issues, and know how all of these can keep you from achieving your goals. I have been involved in full-time ministry since 2004 in both the church and non-profit sector. I have over 15 years of experience in both secular and church communications/marketing. I have worked through the process of starting a non-profit, I direct the ins and outs of ministry on a daily basis, and I am a published author.

Still Not Sure? Give Me 15 Minutes.

Coaching is a big commitment and it is understandable to be hesitant. If that is you, I offer a free, 15-minute consultation. This 15-minute consultation will give you the chance to get to know me, discuss your goals, answer any questions, and see for yourself if coaching is right for you. The consultation is conducted privately over the phone. You may also want to complete the pre-coaching assessment to see if coaching is right for you.

Application for Coaching

You will be contacted via email usually within 24 hours of receiving your coaching application. If after reviewing your application I feel you are not a good candidate for coaching, you will be notified via email. You will be expected to pay for your sessions once your application is confirmed. Payment for coaching sessions can be made online here. My recovery programs do have payment plan options.
